A perfect example is with Teespring.com. Here is how it works…

1. Launch a campaign: Use Teespring Online Designer to create the artwork. Teespring provides the option of working with your own design or using their library of over 10,000 pieces of existing designs

2. Set your goal: This is the number of t-shirts or sweatshirts you plan to sell. Once this target is hit, the t-shirts and sweatshirts are printed.

3. Title and description to explain your campaign: Explainyour campaign or cause, or send a message as to the campaign purpose. For example, ‘In Memory of the 147 students who lost their lives in the Garrissa University Massacre in Kenya on the 2nd of April, 2015. Say No To Terrorism’.
