This is a big selling event on Teespring too, so start brainstorming those dad-themed designs and get in on the action.
Not only is Father’s Day happening in the US and UK, but also in Germany and France (two of Teespring’s top selling EU markets).

Blue Level sellers can get campaigns translated for free by our Languages Department—so send your best father-themed campaigns to email@example.com now.
Get featured this Father’s Day!
We are always on the lookout for great designs to feature on teespring.com and social media. If you’ve got a campaign you think would make a great Father’s Day gift then include the hashtag #FathersDay2017 in your campaign description. We’re also looking for specific products to feature so include these hashtags when applicable; #FathersDayHat, #FathersDayMug, #FathersDayTshirt, #FathersDayHoodie, #FathersDayCanvas, #FathersDayPillow, etc. Also, make sure the campaign’s lifecycle setting is either continuous relaunch or always available.
What’s selling this Father’s Day?
Looking for new niches and design themes to try? We’ve put together this slideshow to help you get inspired.
You can always go with the traditional #1 Dad, Best Dad design route, but try getting creative with the things that people love about their dads—explore design themes like “Fixer of all things” “Life Coach” “Breadwinner”, etc. Also, keep in mind you can customize designs even more with different “dad” names like Papa, Dad, Daddy, Pops etc.
Also, try pushing product combos to increase cart size. Did you know you can combine hats with other products in your Teespring campaigns? Take a look at our latest post for more tips on hat design guidelines.
