Selling t-shirts is an incredible way to unify your supporters, raise funds for an upcoming project, and boost awareness for your cause. Organizations and individual fundraisers can sell t-shirts online through Bonfire’s t-shirt platform, but what about selling t-shirts offline?
From fundraising events to community gatherings, there are several occasions where you’ll direct donors to a paper t-shirt order form to simplify in-person sales. The types of t-shirt order forms you use will vary depending on the context in which you’re selling them.
To help you get started, we’ve created four different types of free t-shirt order form templates, and we’ve broken them down into four categories — classic, nonprofit events, schools, and team order forms. Pick and customize the best t-shirt order form template that matches your needs. Each template is available in two different formats:
- A PDF for individual buyers to fill out when buying from your fundraiser.
- A spreadsheet to help you collect t-shirt orders in bulk at an offline event.

How to Make Your Own T-Shirt Order Form
The printed version of your t-shirt order form needs to have the essential components so that you can accurately place your bulk order and give each supporter the right shirt.
The specifics will vary, but a successful t-shirt order form should include the following information:
- Name and contact information: Gathering phone numbers and email addresses enables you to reach out if you have any questions regarding someone’s order (like verifying color and size).
- Size and color: Leave enough space to indicate the size and full color name.
- Quantity: Include a field to indicate how many shirts the buyer wants. That way, you don’t have to fill out the form twice when a supporter wants to order two of the same shirt.
- Shipping information: Knowing each recipient’s address allows you to send the t-shirts to the correct person once they’re printed.
Keep your t-shirt order form short, only sticking to the necessary features. It’ll take less time to complete and leave less room for errors. Plus, that’s all the information you need to complete your purchase with Bonfire Supply.
