Why Choose Custom Tumblers for Sports Team Fundraising?
Choosing a Fundraiser for Your Sports Team
It’s always hard to decide which fundraising product to choose for your sports team. Obviously, you want something that will sell well and give you a decent profit. There are lots of products that fit that description.
So, what is the most important question to ask yourself?
What Do Your Fans Want?
Ultimately, you want to choose a product your fans want to buy. Again, that could include a lot of products. But, the number one product fans want is something spirit related. They want something that shows off their pride in the team. Something that includes their team colors, name, and logo! So, anything custom designed will sell well. That narrows it down. But, remember, you also want something that is a quality product that makes a great profit, which will narrow it down even more.
Why Choose Tumblers?
There are many custom spirit product choices. As I mentioned before, fans love almost any product that includes their team name and logo. So why choose tumblers? Well, for one thing, tumblers are the “in thing” these days! Everyone loves and uses them! To make it easy, I made a list of reasons why you should choose tumblers for your next sports team fundraiser:
8 Reasons Why Fans Will Buy Tumblers:

How Much Profit Will You Earn?
This is something you have to consider is choosing your product. Sometimes a great product comes with a very low profit or there is a high profit on a not so great product. You’ll have balance it out, when making your decision. A good profit to aim for is at least 40%. High profit is considered 50% or above.
NOTE: When looking at the profit, be sure and consider charges that can lessen your profit.
3 Charges That Can Lessen Your Profit:
- Shipping Charge – Don’t forget the shipping charge! This can eat into your profit and bring a big disappointment. If you’re lucky, you will find a product that offers free shipping.
- Customization Fee – Beware of the customization fee. This will also eat into your profit. Usually, there is a minimum order to get free customization. Thus, be sure you can order the minimum.
- Minimum Order – Most fundraising products require a minimum order for shipping and customization. Requirements vary. Be sure to choose your product carefully, that you can meet that minimum.
Purchase Up-Front or Order-Taker Brochure?
Most spirit products require you to order product for sales and pay up-front. You can always purchase with a credit card or purchase order to delay payment until all products are sold. But, suppose you don’t sell everything in one month? If you fear this may be a problem, consider an order-taker type fundraiser. In some cases, you can have order-taker brochures made to feature your customized product. This gives you the opportunity to make sales and collect payments before sending in your order. Even better, some products give you the option to do both! You can purchase tumblers to show customers before they order.
