Make Something?

What? - Like sit around and make arts and crafts?

Tie Dye shirt

That's not exactly what I have in mind but... why not! I've had our students tie-dye T shirts, then sell them with the money going for charity. More about that in Share Your Wealth or Add On's

My topic here is about buttons, "T" shirts, photo frames. We made money by hiring a company to make buttons, taking photos, or printing "T" Shirts... Everyone can use another T Shirt.

Here's a spin on the "T" Shirts - host an autograph party! Wrap the cost of a fabric marker into the cost of the shirt and on the day of delivery (like the last day of school) people can sign each other's shirts! Truly create one-of-a-kind shirts!

How about an 8x10 of your class... we hired a photographer to take a class portrait. Then we sold photos and they came with a photo display frame - you know the ones with the photo on the right and a plain side on the left... here was our spin, we took a plain piece of paper and got everyone in our class to sign it - then made laser photocopies of it onto sticker paper in our school colors... simple assembly and it was class photo on the right with everyone's signature on the left! A very nice keepsake.


Always host a contest to create the design for the buttons or "T" shirts. I remember back to my high school days and there were two girls that were super competitive cartoonists - tough decisions, but their artwork is now a part of history (and we didn't have to pay a layout charge) AND our local artists helped to generate the interest in the buttons which increased our sales volumes!

Advantages: use a local vendor or print shop - you get close contact to the people you work with and other groups hit them up for donations so they'll appreciate getting business!

Watch out: don't over order... you can "pre sell" to get an idea of what the demand is...
