You have two options for merch orders at Booth & Stager. There are pros and cons to both, of course, so the final decision is up to you. We’ll break it down for you here so you can pick what’s best for you.
With Print One, we create your merchandise, and we set that availability on your virtual Booth. That’s it. There are no upfront costs, and you won’t need to sit around with a box of unsold merchandise in your house. All orders are pre-created, and visible on your page, but they’re not actually produced until your fan places an order. The order is placed, the product is made, and the product is sent to the customer.
As you can imagine, it’s a little more work for printing on-demand. That work, however, is on us - not you. Because of that, each shirt is a little more expensive for the customer, so you’ll make a little less per item. But again, if up front costs are difficult for you right now, this option might be for you.
If up front costs aren’t so scary to you right now, and you’re looking to make more per item, then Print Some might be your best option. When you print in bulk, there’s more of an upfront cost (obvi), but the cost-per-item is lower. That means you’ll make more from each sale.
If you choose this option, you can buy a large order, and we’ll keep inventory of it at your Booth. We’ll still handle shipping and maintenance of your products, so you won’t have to worry about all that. Your customers will know how many you have left, and they will know if stock is running low. And we’ll let you know when it’s about time to place another order.
