PopTop: You can customize the top face (PopTop) with a 2 color, 3 color, or full color design. Note the amount of colors will impact the base cost and setup deposit of your PopSocket (see pricing section below for more info).
Base: Both models’ base is available in three colors options: white, black and white/black.
We require EPS or vector files when creating designs for your PopSocket. You must follow the guidelines provided in the design template so make sure to download it before submitting your request in the Teespring Launcher. Keep in mind the number of colors featured in your design will impact the base cost of the product; you can submit a 2 color, 3 color, or full color (4+ colors) design. Check out our free design collections you can apply to this product as well as our PopSocket inspiration board below. Consider creating phone cases to match your PopSockets—this is a great way to promote product collections and increase sales.
The amount of colors featured in your design and the amount of PopSockets ordered will determine the base cost per product. See the table below for a breakdown of prices and keep in mind the base cost includes inventory transport costs too.
Part 2: Source & sell PopSockets
Here’s a breakdown of how the process works once you’ve designed your PopSocket. Please note it will take around 7 to 10 business days from the day you submit your request to listing creation.
1. Submit request
Once you’ve unlocked this product you’ll see a ‘PopSocket’ product icon in the Teespring Launcher (to unlock new products you need to increase your sales count and maintain a good trust score by complying with Teespring’s design policy). Click the icon and fill out the form with your PopSocket characteristics and submit the request. We aim to process all requests within 24 – 48 business hours.
2. Pay setup deposit
Once we receive your submission we’ll send you a non-refundable deposit payment link. The deposit goes towards the set-up fee required to enable the machines to print your custom design. Setup deposits range from $35 for 1 color, $70 for 2 colors and $105 for full color. The setup deposit only needs to be paid once, so if you order additional stock in the future the deposit will be waived. Keep in mind you will only be able to withdraw profits from sales once orders are shipped to customers.
3. Approve quote & mockup
Once the deposit is paid we will process your request and follow up with a prototype mockup and quote for approval. Keep in mind inventory transportation and storage costs are included in the base cost quoted.
