How do I begin a Student Stores/Max's Print Shop Fundraising Webstore?

Just about anyone can run our fundraising webstores ! Our goal is to empower schools, groups, businesses, and nonprofits to raise funds and awareness for any cause they care about!  Contact Dan Smith at Student Stores/Max's Print Shop today to set up your webstore.

What does it cost me?

Our Fundraising Webstores are completely FREE !   There are no up-front costs associated with starting or running one.  You will not be charged at any point throughout your fundraiser, unless you make a purchase along with your supporters. We even provide a free custom domain name that fits your organization!

Why choose Student Stores/Max's Print Shop & not some random national online company?

Student Stores/Max's Print Shop has been a local, family run and dependable printing & embroidery company for over 35 years.  We have a long & strong track record of producing the highest quality products along with awesome/unique designs… all in a timely manner.  Also, if you have any issues or concerns, we are right in your backyard!  Support Local!

How much money can I raise?

There is NO LIMIT to your fundraising potential! It's all about how many people you can get excited about supporting your organization.

Your marketing & advertising capabilities will be put to the test.  The more people you can steer to your webstore, the more money you can raise!  Whether it be by sending home paper flyers, sending out school email blasts, setting up a community Facebook/Instagram page for your friends & family to share to their friends list, you name it… all of these methods of marketing will help get eyes on your store!

The amount you raise from each shirt is up to you! You set your own mark up. We suggest 40% but some organization charge more or less. You decide which brand and type of shirt to sell, create the design concept with our help (at no cost), and set the sales price. 

Here are strategies to maximize the amount of money you make on each item you sell:

Pick a quality shirt that's not too expensive. For t-shirts, we generally recommend the Gildan Cotton Unisex.

Limit the number of colors & locations in your design. The more colors you use & them more locations of print, the more expensive it is to produce the shirts. We generally recommend no more than three colors to keep production costs down. If you need help creating a design, contact the StudentStores/Max's Print Shop design team today. They'll be happy to assist you.

Limit the design to one location on the shirt. It's more expensive to produce shirts that have designs on both the front and back.

Be careful with your sales price.  You want to set a sales price high enough to generate funds, but not so high that it discourages people from buying. With our guidance, you should be able to sell t-shirts for $15-20 and have a successful fundraising campaign. 

Sell lots of shirts! The more you sell, the more you make! 

Our team can work with you to create a campaign with optimal fundraising potential. Contact the Student Stores Max's Print Shop Fundraising Team and we'd be happy to help!

Are there Minimums?

No, there are no minimums. Every order is printed for your customer wiithin 3 days. No need to wait to for groups of orders!

How do I know how well my campaign is actually doing?

We will provide you with a spreadsheet from your webstore that lists the customers and their purchases.

How do our supporters pay for their products?

Student Stores/Max's Print Shop Online Webstores accept a full fleet of online payment options:  VISA, MasterCard, Discover, and AMEX.

How and when do I get paid?

During the initial setup process, you’ll be asked to specify who the funds will go to.  We generate royalty checks in December and June. Your site runs year-round with new products added throughout the year!
