Help for Fundraiser/Store Organizers
When will my store start?Fundraising and online stores are launched once all artwork and details have been worked out with your Good Ink fundraising expert. You can begin the Store Setup process here.
What makes a Good Ink fundraiser or store successful?We find that the most successful stores balance three things. 1. Promote your store well. We provide tips on how to do this via social media and email. 2. Keep your design simple. Using fewer ink colors costs less money. This means you will make a higher return for your store. 3. Charge an appropriate amount for a T-shirt. The more you charge, the more you’ll keep. However, you’ll want the cost to be a reasonable amount to your supporter/customer.
What is the print minimum?The print minimum is the number of products you need to sell in order for the items to be printed. Good Ink is free for everyone to use, and the only way we can make that happen is to make sure each fundraiser covers fixed costs. Fixed costs include setup, creating screens for each ink color, and purchasing the garments and ink.
What happens if I don’t reach the print minimum?In order for your items to go to print, your minimum must be met. In the event that the print minimum is not met, items will not be printed. All funds collected including shipping charges will be refunded.
How should I set the price of my products?While you create your store, the system will tell you the base cost of each item. There are many variables that factor into this equation. Garment choice, the complexity of the design, and quantity are the main factors. The ultimate gauge, however, is how many garments you think your supporters will purchase and for what price. We see the most success for T-shirts selling in the $20-$25 range.
How much does a Good Ink store cost to set up?Not a thing! Starting a Good Ink store is entirely free. For fundraising stores, 5% of any monetary donations are retained by Good Ink to cover administration costs.
How long will it take supporters to receive their apparel?Orders ship approximately 2 weeks after the store has ended. The recipient will receive an email with tracking information when their order ships.
Help for Fundraiser/Store Customers
Will I receive a receipt of my order or donation?After you complete your purchase/donation you will receive an email with details. Please be sure to check your spam or junk folder if you haven’t received it.
What is your exchange policy?Due to the custom nature of the products on stores, we, unfortunately, cannot accept exchanges.
My apparel doesn’t fit.We highly encourage customers to view a size chart at checkout prior to making a purchase. We only print items once after the store has closed. For this reason, we are unable to accept exchanges or returns.
Is my donation to a fundraiser tax deductible?Monetary donations to a registered 501(c)(3) may be deductible. We suggest talking to a certified tax advisor.
I need to change my order.Please contact us as soon as possible with details including your order number.
I have a question for the store organizer – how do I reach them?Please contact us and we will put you in touch with the store organizer.
How much does it cost to ship?Shipping is based on the weight of the items in your order. Most of the time, a couple shirts will ship for $4 to $5.
How do I know that the funds from my purchase or donation are reaching the appropriate destination?Every fundraising store clearly states the beneficiary of the fundraiser, what cause is being supported, what the funds will be used for and the contact information of the fundraiser organizer. The Good Ink accounting team issues payment directly to the listed beneficiary. If you have additional questions, please contact us.
How can I track my order?Once your order has shipped, an email containing tracking information will be sent to you. Orders ship approximately 2 weeks after the store has ended.
Can I return my item?We are unable to accept returns because apparel is custom printed specifically for the store that you are purchasing from. We do not offer exchanges. In the event that you receive your items and there is a quality issue or they are damaged in shipping, we will work with you on the appropriate resolution. Please contact us at [email protected] and include pictures in the case of defective merchandise.
