What does everyone think about seling there brands on kramaloops kazbah? Im thinking about it and Im trying to decided if its worth the percent they take from me? thanks


in regards to the %....kazbah is cheaper than the % that stores take when you wholesale.

Will you drop some numbers as far as percent?

Kazbah takes 35% and you have to pay $30 a month for "rent"


lol im not making anything selling on karmaloop because in addition to all of these things mentioned, they offer free shipping that you have to cover as well as promo rep discounts that are counted against you as well. I actually only make 1-2$ per shirt but at the moment i am getting a ton of sales so its kind of annoying. I dont want to mark up my shirts and not have them sell but at the same time im not really making anything. bah..

What's goin on everybody? I've recently released my new brand called SleepingELFNT. Can I get everyones feedback about my summer line? Good or bad! Rip my shit apart if you want to. All input will be good for my company. Peace!

This seems really cool as a whole but just some things that jumped out at me that I thought I would mention:
I think the concept of the tee in the third and fourth tee is dope, awesome idea its just hard to see at first being all close up.
On the second tee, the words 'PICKIN THE LOCK COMIN THROUGH THE DOOR BLASTIN' make no sense to me; what does that have to do with the idea behind the brand or the name?
Third tee, from seeing it, I don't get the word JUGGERNAUTS from JGRNTS. I honestly think the abbreviation thing in streetwear now is stupid and often makes no sense. Once again, what does juggernauts have to do with the idea behind your brand or name.
Fifth tee, I actually really dig your logo, thats dope.
Sixth picture, I have nothing to say about the tank, its simple and to the point the only thing is that I would shy away from using other brands' products in your lookbook, I think you want to draw as much attention to your product rather than others'.
One more thing I noticed is that all the tees are monochrome. If thats what you are into and you don't like color and want to appeal to an audience that has the same style, thats cool. Just me though, I personally like to have more variety in products and a good amount to choose from.
Again, looks like a good start. Hope the advice helps!

Thank you, sir! I appreciate the feedback. Just to clear things up, my line is about having a Juggernaut mentality. It's about doing whatever it takes to get things done and overcoming any obstacle thats in my path. That is the reason for the "Juggernauts" tee. And the abbreviation of the word comes from my graffiti background. Abbreviating words the way I did with "juggernauts" did not start in street wear. The "Hunger Pangs" tee is an inspiring quote from 2pac. It doesn't really mean exactly what it says. It's metaphorical.

Everything seems cool except for "Picking the lock comin through the door blasting" tee so many brands put quotes like that on their shirts w/ the quotes really tying into the brand's identity. Also like someone already mentioned there is no need for the Starter cap to be in the lookbook if it isn't one of your products and lastly I feel like the watermark is too big on the pics with the double model view maybe if you shrunk it down and put it in between the model's head it would be better and less distracting. Overall it's a good start.

They look great, I like distressed edges, the only issue is that the script isn't really legible you may have issues moving them if people can't really read what they say. Be sure to include a good product description on your site explaining what 'Cmlyud' represents so people will be more inclined to purchase.

It took me a year to get the whole design that I wanted but to answer your question it was made from scratch. Luckily I happen to have a friend who is a developer and helped me with the back end of it. But I learned when starting a brand, you have to come out with a killer website to be taken seriously. They cost a couple grand but its a good investment for the long run. When you have a bigcartel or store envy your subconsciously put in "that type of brand" category.

looking for feedback whether it be good or bad
You need a better tee template, if you want I can send you one, its a jpeg though so you gotta put your logo on overlay/multiply but it looks much better than that.

Is it just me or does anyone else think that it is degrading to a brands legitimacy by post pre-design template pics asking for feedback? Why not just ask personal friends for feedback? Personally, I enjoy the element of surprise and risk involved with keeping things a secret until released.

But in the end I guess if there is a particular place to do such a thing it would be in this forum.

Carry on.

I agree completely. It lends more respect and legitimacy to a brand when the creator put enough belief in the product to print it. It's all perception I guess. to each his own

I agree with you to some extent, but asking your friends for feedback on your brand is like asking your mom if you're handsome. If you want real feedback, as people who actually know what they're talking about.

Sucks when that kind of stuff happens. Especially this day an age, where theres nothing new under the sun.

But lets be honest, It's a simple text knockout with a background. Its not that original and tons of people have done it, and will continue to do it. Not knocking your hustle at all, because an idea is simply just an idea, its all about how you execute it. So you can still make it work.

Your font on the hats/shirt seems weak. Using premade fonts is cool and easy and all, but sometimes taking it into Ai and moving things around lets you take it to the next level, and make it your own style.

I really appreciate the tips and feedback, it means a lot to me.

The main goal I keep in mind is that I'm making clothes that I want to wear. And If a company has something similar, So be it. I designed these out of my own creativity. As a great being once said, "If you make it, they will come." So I'm not too worried about selling them.

But again my deepest Thanks.

"If you make it, they will come."

Im sorry but thats the laziest thing I've read on this thread. No one just makes a shirt and sits there and watches it sell out. That will never happen. Acquiring a customer is not free, it doesnt just happen. You have to work really fucking hard to make it in this industry. If you think 'oh ya ill make some cool shit and it will sell itself' you're in for a treat.

Not trying to dig on you at all, its just after doing this full time and talking to tons of others thats just an incredibly silly quote for one to go by.

How many times do you see something on karmaloop, or HB, or the internet as a whole, and say oh thats cool i want it? Pretty often i would assume. Now how often do you actually buy it? Exactly. Having a nice looking product NEVER guarantees it will sell. And something is never sold until you HAVE the money in your own pocket.
