Oxford, United Kingdom, January 14, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Shirtlab is delighted to announce a second collaboration with Volunteering England, a charity dedicated to supporting volunteering across the country, in which charities can raise money by enlisting a celebrity to design a t-shirt. The celebrity t-shirts will be available to buy online, with a donation made per t-shirt sold, and a signed version will be auctioned during Volunteers' Week with all funds raised going direct to the nominated charity. For more information, visit http://www.shirtlab.co.uk or call 0800 1072144.
"This is an exciting opportunity for charities to ask their celebrity patrons to get involved in charity fundraising in a creative way," said Steve Beynon, founder of Shirtlab. "Many charities have connections to celebrities and are looking for new ways to involve them in their efforts, so we are anticipating a great deal of interest in the charitable venture."
When asked how Shirtlab is helping to facilitate the celebrity t-shirt design fundraising initiative, Steve replied; "The t-shirts will be designed using the Shirtlab online t-shirt design tools, and Volunteering England is offering to help charities to guide their celebrity patrons through the process if they need it. For every t-shirt of that design sold, £2 is donated directly to the charity, and we will also produce a t-shirt that can be signed by the celebrity to be auctioned off. It's quite a radical fundraising idea," Steve continued, "but I'm certain that when the charities see how easy it is to design a t-shirt using the Shirtlab design lab, they'll be dying to get their celebrity patrons to join in!"
Shirtlab provides a state of the art online promotional garment design service, providing easy to use design tools that create outstanding personalised t-shirt designs with minimal effort. The Shirtlab design lab makes it easy to vary the colours of uploaded images, place text on the design and add an outline colour, whilst the text design tool makes it easy to add special effects to lettering. Real garment images are used, providing a photo-realistic mock up of your personalised garment which can be viewed front and back and rotated.
A single customised garment can be produced, or a group design can be made, allowing the simple creation of team shirts by adding individual names and numbers to a single base design. As garments are designed the all-inclusive per item price is displayed clearly, including design set-up, delivery and VAT. Designs can be stored so that repeat orders can be made easily, or the design adapted at a later point. With the blend of easy-to-use online garment design technology, transparent pricing and a full money back guarantee, all you need to create a customised t-shirt for you and your team, club or organisation is your imagination.
