ClassScene online storefront features customized spirit wear
ClassScene by Walsworth, a proprietary, online media site that offers real-time sharing of school memories to everyone affiliated with a member school, has launched the ClassScene School Store, an online storefront featuring customized spirit wear. A portion of the proceeds from sales through the store are contributed back to the school by ClassScene.
Available to the students, parents and the entire community of a member school, the School Store will initially feature over 30 apparel items and 20 print items. These items can be personalized using school photos from the school's ClassScene media gallery. During the month of October, more than 90 embroiderable apparel items will be added to the merchandise assortment for each school.
Aside from a wide assortment of spirit wear and merchandise designed to celebrate school memories, the School Store provides a new source of revenue by returning a percentage of every purchase back to the school.
"The ClassScene School Store is a unique concept," said Jay Waddell, director of Marketing for ClassScene. "There are no other media-sharing sites that sell personalized spirit wear and return a percentage of every purchase back to the school. Many schools are looking for additional revenue and because we manage order fulfillment, the School Store is a streamlined way to offer the community the chance to purchase school-branded goods while raising funds at the same time."
Specifically, each school's personalized ClassScene School Store will offer apparel items from t-shirts and sports jerseys to fleece jackets and hats. Printable items such as calendars, memory books, greeting cards and wrapping paper are also available to personalize and purchase.
Aside from the items currently offered on the School Store, schools are able to add their own products such as event tickets, photo packages, yearbooks and other fundraising items.
ClassScene works with a pre-determined set of vendors to process and fulfill each order, but schools with existing vendor relationships can merchandise their preferred vendor's products, set pricing and offer their community the convenience of 24/7 online shopping. Orders are then processed and sent directly to the vendor.
To maximize convenience, the School Store accepts all major credit cards and payments are processed by PayPal, a recognized leader in secure online payment processing. Every ClassScene School Store meets or exceeds Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance standards for safety and security.
"The School Store makes it easy for everyone within a school community to shop online for personalized apparel and other school-branded items while financially supporting their school," said Waddell. "We're excited about the opportunity to offer students, their families and school communities more opportunities to share school pride, while benefiting the school through the revenue sharing plan."
ClassScene provides the ability for today's students to relive and experience the most important and special events of the school year as they occur, in a safe and secure online environment. Along with sharing images and video with ClassScene, students are able to create their own personal studio to share movies, montages and slideshows with friends and family.
