Hey guys this is just a quick concept of my Visionary Clothing line, this is one of the two tees I plan to release for the summer give me some feedback.

Need feedback guys..


Nothing catches my eyes I personally hate a shirt with nothing but a quote on it. No design or anything. Feels like there is nothing behind it.
EDIT: Unless it looks really really good. Otherwise I don't like it


Already a brand called Visionary.

Give them away. Give them ALL away. Think of stickers as a form of marketing, the more you have out there, the more likely people are to notice you.

The only way I could really see selling stickers would be AFTER your brand is well established. (ONLY, Supreme, etc.)

I have great success with MySupaDupa if anyone wants to try making a store with them. I was lucky enough to setup with that just started and was offering free setup. But I love how they operate.

Resgister your domain name with GoDaddy which is fairly cheap. Can't remember exactly but like 7.99-14.99 for two years and have it automatically renew and then use MySupaDupa to redirect.

They send emails when you get a order, you can print out a packing slip and invoice once the order is complete.
I actually like it better then bigcartel.

you guys should check it out.

And unwould def. shop around. Don't always go with the first shop that contacts you. Looks at their work, ask about usual print time is and info like that. I have used atleast 4 different printers until I found my pot of gold printer that I use right now.


Yo, can you redirect the URL with the free plan? SupaDupa plans says I need the 20$/month plan for a custom URL, or is there another way to redirect


I'm not 100% sure but probably. I setup with them as soon as the made the site so I got everything for free as a promo.
Ask them about discount codes though.

Second this. Stickers are an amazing form of marketing! When doing a business plan just factor them in as a marketing cost. If you are able to sell a couple then that is practically like getting handed money you didn't expect to get.
Also, use them as a form of guerrilla marketing. Put them in high traffic areas and that just helps to know that more eyes will see them than if you just give them to people you know.

Somebody please explain tax resale to me.
I want to order from AA and it requires this tax resale certificate & number...

So far I've found this:
Resale Certificate
But I don't know what to do after I fill it out... Is it official after I fill it out and do I just send it to AA?
In essence, what do I need to do to register for alstyle???

A well explained response to my question will be APPRECIATED!!

I priced my products on how I wanted to value the brand. The hoodie was printed with water based inks, custom hem tag on bottom left, on Independent Trading Co. (same hoodies Diamond and Obey print on), which are top notch quality. Anything priced lower I would feel would be devaluing the product.

Thanks for the comments guys! The consistency between designs and overall brand aesthetic is the most important for me and usually what I look for when looking at other brands.

@jayoceansss I think $60 for a quality hoodie isn't bad at all, price = value. Whats shipping costs to Canada like? Might purchase that hoodie for myself.

Agreed, I priced my stuff at what its value is but I honestly don't expect it to sell right off that bat at full price. I always have the promo code in my signature available and others floating around the internet for people who are into the product to pick it up at a more reasonable cost.

Those prices are super fair. With shipping its the same as buying at any store for retail value. Everything looks great man!

We just released a few summer items. Personally looking back its pretty amateur but I had a lot of fun with it and got lots of great feedback.. But fall is going to be great line with a lot of small touches put in. We are also working on a denim style coat. Our snapbacks are almost in to for those who messaged about them.

Ahh I respect that then.
I know some people just come out with their first release with high prices, but at least you have valid reasoning for your price.

I respect what you guys are saying. I just personally have always been conscious about charging people too much. While could have priced my tees at 25-28, I priced it ad 20, and my crewnecks at 25 as opposed to the regular. I find that people appreciate it more, and they're more comfortable at buying more than one item at that time or come back again. And I didn't sacrifice quality, and I made enough profit to call it decent.

I know personally I'm more inclined to buy things at a lower price.....maybe that's the cheap side of me talking haha.

But as I said before, I respect your pricing upon hearing the reasoning for it. I know people just price their tees expensively just for the money, but don't have the quality to back it up.
