SAN FRANCISCO (CelebrityAccess) — Self-service ticketing platform Eventbrite has teamed up with Teespring in a deal that will allow event producers to create and sell custom merch through an integrated e-commerce platform.
Teespring allows users to create and sell merchandise such as custom t-shirts, and provides access to an existing manufacturing and supply chain. Teespring's service has been integrated into Eventbrite's dashboard, letting event creators add merch as part of the company's services.
"Merchandise and events go hand-in-hand. It's a way for any event attendee to express their passion at an event, and to extend their experience beyond that moment. In the past, organizers had to overcome major barriers to create custom apparel for an event. Teespring's integration with Eventbrite transforms that experience. An event organizer can design apparel for an event and make it available for purchase within minutes," said Robert Chatwani, Chief Marketing and Revenue Officer of Teespring.
"Just like Eventbrite helps you create live events for your cause, hobby or team, Teespring lets anyone turn their passion into a great product, with no risk or upfront investment. It's a great fit, and we're very excited to partner with Eventbrite," Chatwani added.
