Schools and Colleges

Use them for applications like fundraisers, team gear, booster clubs, or custom apparel for students and parents.
Here are two great examples from Dixon Graphics.
Dixon Graphics set up a storefront for Calico Conference featuring custom-branded merch with the organization’s logo on it. The artwork was easily applied across three different garments for display in the shop, so customers had a few other options.
Illinois Computer Science Alumni
This store used InkSoft as a platform for alumni to order a custom printed T-shirt to celebrate their graduation. This store style is great if you’re helping an organization put together complimentary merch for end recipients since you can add a promo code as this shop did.
Other school groups perfect for Online Stores:
- Colleges and greek organizations
- High Schools and spirit wear

InkSoft Stores are an excellent platform for charitable causes, thanks to the ability to quickly add several different types of products and offer multiple designs. Shops and their customers can determine how much of the proceeds they want to donate to a cause. If it’s a time-sensitive campaign, they can add a timer to the page to create more urgency.
Here’s an example of an online store Damin Printing set up for WIT (Whatever it Takes) Revolution. The organization offers T-shirts and hoodies imprinted with various messages to support causes like Autism Awareness, military and veterans, and environmental concerns and donates a portion of the proceeds towards these causes.
For charitable causes, there are endless opportunities to raise funds with Online Stores. Other categories include:
- Disaster relief
