    I see there is not as much interest in Teespring as I thought.

    Well my design contest is running and will end soon.

    Expenses will be 164 € for the t-shirt design.

    Currently doing some targeting research for my custom audience on facebook.

    164 € ???
    Where are you getting your design from?

    I can do it much cheaper just to see how things go with your journey :)

    P.S: I also started my journey with TeeSpring earlier today and created two campaigns for totally different niche. And since I'm a designer myself so I don't have to pay anyone.....and gonna try free promotions first :)

    I'm guessing this price is for both design and FB ads coz otherwise that is an obscene price to pay
    just for a design

    I tried Teespring with some pretty targeted campaigns and didn't have any results at all. I think in order for this to work well you need a laser targeted campaign and really low Cost Per Click.

    It is just the design. Since I am not able to make the designs on my own I am trying to get high quality designs.

    I used 99designs.com and ran a design contest. Thes are usually more expensive, but you have more designs to choose from.

    I am getting ready to start my ad campaign on facebook. I already set up some examples. The design looks great and Teespring has been very helpful with the setup on their site.

    Keep you updated!

    I want to see how it's gonna turn, cos you already spend so much on design.
    Hope it will sell very well :D

    That is not an unreasonable price to pay for a stellar design. Too many people have the, "everything should cost $5" mentality. The only things that actually cost $5 are things that someone can create at the push of a button. Inexpensive designs look terrible.

    To make money on Teespring, though, you really need to have someone on your team who can do the designs for free. Then you can do lots of campaigns and your only cost is FB advertising.

    You also have to be very targeted, as someone else said. And your designs have to be very, very original. It's not just the artwork that matters, but the composition.

    In my experience Design and a targeted campaign are equally important and should be given top priority. If one of them is not working, you are going to have no results at all. Worth spending money on a nice T-shirt design.
