How to Enter

Step 1 – Create a storefront.

In order to start creating your storefront, you need to create a FunnyShirts.org account. For those of you who already have an account, you’re one step closer to designing! Once you have your account set up, you will be able to build and manage everything here in order to run your storefront.

Please read through all the details about storefronts before creating a storefront and entering the contest. Read the storefront details here. funnyshirts.org/?page=storefronts

Step 2 – Add five designs

After creating and naming your storefront, the fun begins! Now it’s time to add five of your original designs. Just as a side note: you’ll want to make sure these are your own original and unique designs and not a design copied from somewhere else. Try to avoid any designs that could infringe on the copyrights of another brand or celebrity, make it truly yours! After saving your designs, they need to be approved before they will appear in your storefront.

Step 3 – Email us at storefronts@funnyshirts.org

We love seeing awesome storefronts so send us an email with a link to your storefront and it’s that easy! You’ll be entered into the contest for a chance to win!

Earn Money with a Funny Shirts Storefront!

Funny Shirts has storefronts! Funny Shirts has storefronts! Funny Shirts has storefronts!

We have just launched our new storefront program that will enable graphic designers, businesses, photographers, funny people, people who think they’re funny and everyone in between to design tees, tanks, hoodies, and more to earn royalties for every sale!

Just what is a Funny Shirts Storefront?

We’re glad you ask. A Funny Shirts storefront is a site hosted by FunnyShirts.org from which you can sell any of our awesome tees, tanks, crop tops, hoodies, sweats, beer steins, coffee mugs, duffel bags, boxers, bikinis, and more that you’ve designed! This means you can use the art and fonts from our design center to create original designs or upload your own photos, designs, and logos! For every sale that comes out of your storefront, you will earn a royalty!

Okay, let’s talk royalties.

Earn all the royalties you can. The royalty rate depends on the item. Right now, it ranges from 10% to 16%.

You will see the royalty rate on the product details page of every item and on the Save page. When you save a design, you will see “The royalty rate for this item is ___%”.

Tip: if you want to find low-priced items with high royalty rates, start with our line of Basic Tees. (Basic apparel comes in light colors.) If you want to earn the highest possible dollar value per item, start with high end brands, like American Apparel, Bella Flowy or Alternative Apparel.

Yeah, but how much to open a storefront?

Nada. Zip. Zilch. Seriously. It doesn’t cost you a thing to open or maintain your storefront. And it never will.

Hot Diggity! How do I get started then?

First things first- create a Funny Shirts account (yes, this is also free). Once you’ve done so, you will then create a storefront. You’ll see a link to do so in the My Account page. From there you can name your store, add a URL, and upload a logo. Start designing any and all of our items and watch the earnings pile up in your PayPal™ account!

PayPal™ ? What’s that got to do with it?

Nothing gets past you. We use PayPal™ to pay our storefront owners. If you don’t already have a PayPal™ account, please create one. It’s easy and free. You will be asked to enter an email address. When you have earnings to redeem, simply go to My Account > Earnings and enter that same email address and click ‘redeem’.

Alright. Anything else I should know?

Yeah. A couple of things:

1. Copyright infringement isn’t going to fly. We have to approve all of your designs before they’re posted to your storefront (usually takes about 24 hours tops). We’ll approve just about anything except work that is copyrighted. No Harry Potter. Sorry. Talk to Ms. Rowling.

2. People can customize your designs. Say you designed a funny unicorn t-shirt, but Sally would much rather have a funny unicorn sweatshirt. Sally can customize your design by changing out the item and even adding more art, text, whatever to the design. But don’t freak out, you still earn a royalty. If they enter the design center through your design and add something to their cart, you earn the royalty.

3. Right now, we are asking you to wait until you have earned at least $30 before redeeming your earnings. But we are flexible with this. Just email us at storefronts@funnyshirts.org.

4. You can find more information at our Storefront FAQ page. If you still have questions PLEASE email us! We want to hear from you!

Introducing the Blog of FunnyShirts.org

This is the blog for FunnyShirts.org.  If you’re looking to own, or give as a gift, some darn funny shirts, we highly recommend you visit FunnyShirts.org with a credit card at the ready.

We have many hopes and dreams for this blog. We put up killer new designs constantly on FunnyShirts.org, so we won’t be able to post every single new design here on the blog, but we will post new designs as they become popular.

We also want to use this blog to keep our finger on the pulse of the massive funny t-shirt industry. We will have an eye on our competitors and post the designs that we really dig.  I can’t wait to make a post about the 20 best Alf T-Shirts on the market.  Remember Alf, Bart?  He’s back! In t-shirt form.

And we really want to write about some of the issues facing t-shirt makers in this day and age.  For example, what’s up with Fair Use?  Do the big copyright owners actually respect Fair Use?  Or do they threaten to sue despite the obviously satirical nature of your design?  Well, these are all things to anticipate if you subscribe to our blog.  It should be pretty awesome.

Sincerely,

The FunnyShirts.org Team of Friendly and Attractive People
