okay, so i know i’ve never really made a post like this before, but i’m gonna try my best. please read until the end!
so lately in my free time i’ve been drawing designs for pokemon tshirts. i started doing it for fun and just to make some spare cash here and there. i’ve been using inksterinc.com to print and sell my shirts. each shirt on the website costs $20, and every $5 of each of shirt that sells goes straight to me. but i found out something that really sparked my interest while reading the website’s faq.
"If your designs’ sales reach $10,000 by the end of 2014, we’ll pay you $10,000. Yep, you read that right. Ten-thousand big ones."
i read that and i just got. so. happy. ten thousand dollars. that’s ten thousand dollars that can go straight to my bank account. it can go towards my future, it can go towards moving out after i graduate, paying for a car, going to college, getting an apartment, anything like that. there is so much i could do with that kind of money, and to think i could earn it just by selling tshirts in my spare time?? i thought it was definitely an opportunity that i didn’t want to pass up.
i quickly did the calculations to see how many shirts i would need to sell in order for my shirt sales to reach $10,000. 10,000 ÷ 20 ($20 a shirt) = 500.
i’d have to sell 500 shirts by the end of 2014 in order to get the ten thousand dollars.
and it gets better. by selling the 500 shirts, i’d still be getting my 5-dollar-per-shirt profit. so that’s 2,500 dollars more that i could raise. (500 × 5 = 2,500) i could make a total of 12,500 dollars just from selling pokemon shirts on the internet. that amazes me to think about really.
the problem is, even with all the publicity my shirts have gotten so far, i’ve still only sold seven shirts so far. 2014 ends in four months from now, so i only have five months to sell 493 more shirts. i understand that a lot of people might not be able to afford it, don’t like buying things online, or just might not even be interested in my designs. and i understand completely! but if every other person who read this post could afford to spare 20 bucks towards ordering a shirt, i’d be able to sell 500 shirts in no time! it’s a long shot, but it’s definitely possible. but i would need your help and cooperation if you’re willing to give me it. like i said, i understand if you aren’t interested in buying my shirts or can’t! all i ask out of you guys is that if you don’t plan on ordering a shirt, please signal boost this post. because who knows, maybe some of your followers who see it might be interested! i know i’m just a random person on the internet, and i know it’s a lot to ask, but it’d really be helping so much.
a lot of you are probably thinking, “well, what do i get out of it?” well, for one, you get a pretty rad pokemon shirt! i already have a few designs available, and i’m constantly making new ones. (you can even send me an ask and suggest some pokemon if you want!) and you also get the satisfaction of knowing you helped a broke high school student raise over twelve thousand dollars for her future, so that’s kinda cool too.
i think i’ve rambled on enough, you guys probably get the idea by now.
i’ll end this post with the link to my store if you’re interested in helping me out! and like i said, if you can’t order a shirt, please at least reblog and help spread the word if you can! thank you all so much for reading, and thank you a million times in advance if you order a shirt. (if you want to show me pictures of your shirt once you get it, tag it #jennifersshirts so i can see it and give you a proper thank you!! plus i’d love to see all you cuties rocking my designs tbh??)
and lastly, sorry for the really lengthy post. if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask me about them. ♥
