Paris-based t-shirt printing startup Teezily expands to Germany

Teezily.com, a Paris-based startup that could be described as the European version of Teespring, will expand to Germany within the coming days. After their start in the French market, Teezily already expanded to the UK ealier this year.

By the way, the ‘role model’ for Teezily, Teespring, just raised $20 million from Andreessen Horowitz. The French startup and the US-based original offer an easy way to design and sell custom apparel online. The growing e-commerce platform Teezily allows anyone to create and sell custom shirts with their own design, and finance the production of the shirts through a crowdfunding campaign. The startups’ goal is to make selling the shirts you design as easy as possible, by leveraging social media to help you make money and raise funds for charities.

When you use Teezily, you don’t have to pay upfront. Your campaign’s success depends on your idea and the people who are willing to support it. Just use the online designer to create your perfect item and decide the number of shirts you plan to sell. Then, you just need to share your campaign with supporters and collect pre-orders towards your goal, among your niche or targeted audiences.

How Teezily is different from crowdfunding platforms like Kickstarter is the fact that all production and shipping of the crowdfunded goods are handled by Teezily itself, not by you. The company’s business model involves taking a flat margin per shirt, and customers sell those shirts for whatever they want.
