Wear your faith when you make merch for your church. Merch can benefit your congregation in more ways than you might think.
Use merch as a means for fundraising. With Spreadshop, you can take back a portion of the profits beyond our base price. This works in the favor of shop owners – especially when you’re raising money for a good cause.
Church merch can also bring a community together. Wear custom t-shirts to church retreats, trips and events. You’ll create memories – and take great photos – that you’ll always cherish. It’s easy to wear your faith when you use Spreadshop for your merch needs!
Easy Shop Setup
Launch your shop in minutes, hey, even seconds! To open a Spreadshop all you need is your name, email and shop name (which you can change anytime). Uploading designs might seem overwhelming at first, but you likely already have content that will look great on your merch.
Use your church name or logo. It’s likely you already have one that you use in marketing materials and for promotion. You can upload your designs as jpg and png files. Looking for design inspo? Canva offers FREE and paid tiers where you can make print-ready graphics. They have so many design elements and templates to choose from. You won’t leave the platform empty-handed!
Spreadshop has hundreds of products you can use for your church merch. The inventory you offer is up to you, just like the theme. Customization is going to be key to your success. Tell your story, your way.
Fundraise With Merch
Bake sales and raffles are go-to fundraiser options, but selling merch offers a different fundraising experience. People want to feel like they’re part of something bigger than themselves. And Spreadshop can help you do that with your church merch.
Non-profit Children Mending Hearts used merch to raise money when they couldn’t see each other in-person and have their normal fundraising events. Having a merch shop gave them the opportunity to connect with people virtually, plus, it was FREE and easy.
“The biggest attraction we had to Spreadshop was [that] it was print-on-demand,” said a spokesperson. “Since we’re a small non-profit, we don’t have the resources or space to produce and store a full run of T-shirts.”
You don’t need to have a big operation to raise funds for your church. A church of any size can set up a shop and start making money with the support of their community.
Faith in Merch
Every week, churches open shops with us. We’ve seen a range of designs and messages that speak to faith. Check out what churches are doing with their merch!
Mount Calvary Community Church has a dynamic logo that stands out on all their merch products. They call themselves “the biggest little church in Omaha” and no doubt they’ve got the best church merch in Omaha. Living Stones Church based in Nevada have found a way to modernize their merch. They’ve added simple yet defined graphics to their merch beyond a traditional logo. This helps target multiple demographics.
St. Matthew’s Church decided to commemorate their 40th anniversary with merch. If they’re putting on an event, this merch gives them the opportunity to tell a story and honor the years they’ve been active in their community. Merch is more than just t-shirts and hoodies; it helps send a message.
Reach Your Community
Church merch strengthens the bond you have with your community. It’s a physical reminder of what you have in common: your faith. You can promote your merch to members of your congregation in a way that works for you.
Make dedicated flyers and post them on billboards at different places in your community. Hand them out at the end of mass. Remind people at church events. If your church has a social media presence, even better.
Create content that features your merch in a relatable way and be direct with your messaging. If you want to drum up even more interest, consider doing a giveaway. This will create new conversations and interest.
