Fundraising is a necessary evil associated with nearly every recreational sport, group, or organization. Let’s face it, fundraising can feel overwhelming and frustrating when you don’t know what you are doing. No one enjoys asking for donations or force-feeding unwanted merchandise or services to uninterested or tepid audiences.
The most successful fundraisers often present the rare “win-win” scenario in which the organization raising the funds is able to generate valuable funding while supplying those providing the funds with a product or service that they are actually interested in. We’ve all seen the typical high school bake sale, car wash, or discount card campaign. Although these ideas are proven and have stood the test of time, there are new, exciting products that serve as superior alternatives.
At SportsScarf, we specialize in producing high-quality custom scarves that present a completely unique, exciting way to raise funds for your organization. Unlike other products, our custom scarves can be completely customized, including the layout, design, text, and even fringe colors. This customization allows your group to create your very own scarf from scratch, rather than simply printing your logo onto a t-shirt.
In addition to an infinite level of customization, we offer a wide variety of scarf styles with varying thicknesses and weights to work with any type of climate. Our knitted scarves are robust enough to provide ample warmth in colder environments, but remain breathable in warmer climates. Fear not, friends suffering from scorching summers, we have polyester scarves that offer the same customization benefits as our knitted and woven scarves, but feature a thinner, lighter, more breathable construction.
Our simple process is designed to put the “fun” back in fundraising by removing any risk of overbuying. Rather than having to guess the correct amount of inventory to purchase, we allow you to produce all of the artwork ahead of time and use that artwork to gauge demand. Our professional design team will produce digital scarf designs using your very own artwork completely free of charge, and with no obligation to buy! You can use your scarf design to promote the fundraiser and discover the exact quantity to order. After submitting your order, sit back, relax and let us get to work. In four weeks or less, your custom scarf order will be delivered right to your door!
How to get started:
- Request pricing and designs
- Fill out our Pricing Request Form to obtain pricing. Please send artwork for your organization to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include any your logos and wordmarks that you would like included in your designs. Layout ideas and color recommendations can be listed in the comments section. Our professional design team will then create several digital mock-up designs using your artwork, and send them to you via email within 48 hours.
- Sample digital mock-up design:
- Approve your final design
- After you have worked with our design team to create the perfect scarf, approve the final design that you would like to order. In addition to the digital design layout, you will also select the style of scarf that you would like order.
- Use your scarf design to hold your pre-sale
- Using the digital mock-up design that you approved, present your scarf design to your audience to hold your pre-sale. Our digital designs are great for social media, email campaigns, and more!
- Submit an order form
- After your pre-sale has been completed and the number of scarves that you will need to order has been confirmed, fill out our online order form.
Once the order form is submitted, you will receive an invoice via email and we will get started on a final proof for your order (we call it a production design). The production design will provide you with a better idea as to how the scarf will look in person. Upon approval of the production design, the order will go directly into production. We accept all major forms of payment including credit cards, checks, purchase orders, and PayPal. We do not require a deposit, but payment in full is required prior to shipment (excluding purchase orders).
