What if there was an EASY & QUICK way to buy Steem T-Shirts and other branded items with Steem and have them shipped worldwide? Good news, it will exist soon! #SteemthreadssteemCreated with Sketch.

in steemit •  last year

1. Good news folks, I have found a printing company that will take the load of 80% of the process, I will build the website portal and accept the Steem, they will print & ship orders for me and all I have to do is keep them paid up in USD.

I have a business relationship with a rather solid printing company and while putting in a new order the other day I started thinking about drop shipping through them, so I wen't ahead and asked them how the felt if I wanted to use them for such a project, and they were very open. So starting today I will begin working on the website portal and getting things set up, some t-shirt designs pre printed and what not, then they will begin to fill orders twice a week, tuesdays and thursdays. And I am working pricing out with them as well as we speak, hopefully worldwide shipping won't be an issue but if it is I can always take those orders upon myself and have minimums or what not. Either way this seems to be a pain point in our community and I would love to alleviate it!

2. Meaning, we can slowly grow the "Steem clothing inventory" over time, and have a solid successful printing company handling the back end for us, this could become a very big project for Steem growth in the coming months.

The cool part about this entire project is it doesn't really rely on me at all, this is all going through them, they will be printing, filling orders and shipping the shirts in small bundles anywhere in the world most likely, and all I will have to do is collect the Steem, and pay them in USD each month when the bill is due. Not to bad a deal if I say so myself... I can see this blowing up very quickly to be honest... this is like t-shirt gold!

3. www.SteemThreads.com has been purchased and is being developed starting today, this will be the portal where Steemians can shop with Steem/SBD for t-shirts and other gear!

I wanted to provide a Steem branded web portal that lets use pay for clothing with their Steem and the back end/printing company takes care of the rest. Now I have built plenty of web stores in my years, but this one I take extreme pride in building and hope it will be one of the most attractive web based stores out there, especially in the crypto sphere. I plan to only host 1-5 items at first, then slowly build the shop out to have a wide array of Steem/Zappl/SteepShot/ChainBB branded products, that are all purchasable in Steem!

PS: Once we launch I will be doing a giveaway for anyone going to #Steemfest! Stay tuned!

Get Ready Folks, it's time to clothe the world in Steem! #SteemThreads

Great news and good job! Quality materials would be greatly appreciated :)

·

Yea I personally think crappy clothes are nothing but landfill junk or rags...

My shirt I will wear everyday to spread the STEEEMIT HYPE!!!!

·

Thats the idea!!

i was thinking that good xmas gifts this year would been a steemit related item like a shirt and a video or write up on how steemit is the next social media. show them i paid for the shirts with steem.

·

Exactly! Hand written letters, plus a shirt would not only be a great present accompanied by some Steem, but also help us get out there and sign others up!

Been wanting to score some swag for a while. This is a good look. Congrats.

take my money animi giphy-downsized.gif

Glad you like the idea! I'll try and get it finished within 2 weeks.

Bom trabalho (good work)! you could bring one shirt for me when you came to Portugal!

·

Most definitely!

I will definitely buy a t-shirt! But do you know ca the price per? In dollar? :)

·

Not yet, will update in a few days when we nail some costs down.

looks good, great idea!

Exactly what i need

Great. Hope this will come cheap :)

·

Thats the goal! I am not going to make much off these sales, maybe $3 or something each, max. The rest is going to the printing company, so there will be very little room to squeeze costs as they are already going to be cheap, for high quality as possible clothing.

Im excited because I will be needing steemit shirts for the promotion of steemit here in my place. I am already in contact with the local printing shop here, but will check yours out.

This is by no means mean't to be the end all of steem clothing, simply a way for people who don't wanna go through all the headache of getting them printed themselves. I totally encourage everyone to keep being creative!

·

Yeah right but the feeling of using shirts coming from the other side of the world, feels great :)

Do you need artists to design t shirt graphics or characters?

·

Not quite yet, I am a designer myself, but perhaps once I test these guys out for some months we can ramp up production and do some cooler stuff..

·

Hahhaha glad you like it!

Good to know. Certainly looking forward to buying some STEEM t-shirts

Very good idea, good luck to you!

Badass! I'd represent for sure, I love Steemit! I used to have a clothing brand that was print on demand as well. I used theprintful.com.

Would anyone be up for starting a fund to buy Steem themed clothing to donate to the needy? I'd do it but I definitely don't yet deserve the communities trust.

·

I could work something where I can drop of XXX amount of shirts if we can raise the funds to a charity as well...

·
·

That would be sweet! I'd throw in a few STEEM.

·
·
·

I'll try and organize something after it goes live to celebrate the launch.. sound good?

I'm in! Cheers 😊😊😊
