ASMR YouTuber Karuna Satori, also known as Sarah, is a busy, working mother of two. As her following grew, so did her fans’ demand for merch. Sarah had tried offering merch in the past, but the process was time consuming and seemed like something only ‘big’ creators could do.
“I thought it was [required to have] a couple million subscribers to get in—but it’s not! Everybody can use Teespring, which I thought was really really cool.”
However, after discovering Teespring everything changed. Check out Sarah’s experience sourcing and selling custom pins with TeespringGo below.
How does TeespringGo work?
TeespringGo is offers of two services—the first is sourcing + fulfillment (we help you find a supplier and source inventory) and the other is fulfillment only (you send us inventory and we fulfill orders for you). Creators who already have a vendor can ship their inventory to our facility for fulfillment or work with a Teespring employee 1 on 1 to access our additional sourcing service. Sarah used our pin sourcing service which can be unlocked and accessed within the Teespring Launcher.
Creating pins with Teespring
After reviewing our pin design guide, Sarah was ready to start creating pins. Using the form provided in the launcher, she was able to provide her design, select her pin type, finish, backing, and packaging. After submitting the request our team followed up with a quote and mockups for approval. Once approved we collected payment and processed her order.
Once inventory arrived we took product photos and set up the listing for Sarah. Here’s what she had to say about the experience:
“I absolutely loved it. Basically, my fans freaked out whenever I told them I had pins coming out because I always promised I’d never do merch because honestly, it definitely seemed a little bit like it was too hard to put it out.”
Sarah said creating hype around the pins on her channel and social media accounts helped to drive sales. Crowdsourcing design ideas is another great way to get your community involved. Click here to learn more about merch promotional tips.
“I would really recommend Teespring to others specifically because I actually did have a problem trying to put out hoodies a long time ago with another brand…[But this time] It was a very simple process using Teespring, and I’m really excited about it.”
