Let Us Help You Fundraise


Two Fundraising Options to Choose From!

Option 1: Bulk Purchase with Custom Selling Price You have the freedom to set your own selling price when you buy our products in bulk at the wholesale rate. Display the items on location, allowing customers to see and feel the products before making a purchase. There are no additional costs apart from the wholesale price (unless you pay via credit card - then credit card fees apply). Payment is due upon ordering. To streamline the process, you can create flyers and take pre-orders to estimate the quantity needed, and even prepare an express line for those orders. Packaging up pre-orders create a convenient experience for your clients!

Option 1 Pros and Cons: Opting for Option 1 allows for physical contact with the products, which often leads to immediate on-site purchases. People can start wearing their new gear right away, resulting in bigger sales and more profit. However, the downside is that there is no option for us to buy back any unsold inventory. If you run out of stock, you can take orders and we can print those for you (with a minimum of 20 pieces for reorders).

Option 2: Hassle-Free Fundraising Setup: The Twisted Hippo Fundraiser Setup Let us handle the setup for your fundraiser! Your products will have their own special link on our website (note: customers can browse and buy other products as well). We take care of website setup, order processing, and shipping. There is a $30 (2023) fee for the initial website setup which gives mockups, color & size choices, size charts, care instructions and a link. The good news is that for future sales (especially for schools doing spirit wear twice a year), there are no additional fees. That $30 fee covers the same fundraiser design for repeat campaigns. If you need new designs or photos added to the website, there is a discounted fee of $15. It's important to handle marketing responsibilities such as promoting on Facebook, through emails, distributing flyers, etc. After the fundraiser, you'll receive a check minus design fee, website setup fee and any credit card transaction fees. A financial statement will also be provided. This option requires a minimum of 25 products sold. We have never had a fundraiser not meet the requirements for products sold! 

Option 2 Pros and Cons: Choosing Option 2 requires less effort on your part, and customers can shop online 24/7. However, there are fees involved for you, and customers will have to cover shipping costs. Sales may not be as high as with in-person sales.

Additional Options and Considerations: We are open to discussing other options that can help make your fundraiser successful. We value customer input and ideas, as we are always evolving and growing.

Our Range of Apparel and Printing Options: We offer various shirt options, including Bella and Canvas, Comfort Colors, Next Level, Hanes, and Gildan. Our selection includes long sleeves, V-necks, short sleeves, tank tops, crop tops, muscle tees, and racerback tanks. In addition to apparel, we can print on canvas totes, dishtowels, drawstring bags, and masks. All our apparel is printed using an industrial DTG printer.

More than Just Apparel: Beyond apparel, we also own a laser machine, which opens up numerous possibilities for fundraising merchandise. We can create ornaments, bookmarks, spirit wear earrings, keychains, and more.

Design and Pricing Details: Our design fee is a one-time charge of $25 per design. We take your ideas and provide you with a few design options. Our wholesale quantities start as low as 20 pieces per design. Once we receive your design or create one for you, we provide a quote sheet with our prices. However, you have full control over setting your own selling prices to determine your desired profit margin.

Exciting Updates for 2023: We now offer printed hats for both youth and adults. Additionally, all website fundraisers include QR codes for easy access. Please note that apparel pricing has risen in recent years, but we continually strive to find cost-effective options without compromising on quality. The change in pricing primarily reflects manufacturing costs rather than labor costs.


"Our experience with The Twisted Hippo has been absolutely FANTASTIC! From initial contact to design and setting up our own personal section on their website…everything was amazing and stress free. We never felt pressured or unheard. Shannon is professional, helpful, creative, honest and incredibly responsive. Even the most trivial questions, she took her time to explain everything and keep us posted every step of the process. I wish I would have known about The Twisted Hippo years ago so we could have started using them for our Spirit Wear back then. 

I’m so glad the search is over! Highly recommend The Twisted Hippo! Thank you “The Twisted Hippo” for bringing quality Spirit Wear and other awesome goodies to our students at Lucas ES. We appreciate you so very much." Nadine, PTO President
