On average, whats the cost of producing 1 Tee?
-screen printing, packaging, $ spent on tee, tags, stickers etc?
Any helps appreciated.

Also photoshop or illustrator?


That's a bit like "how long is a piece of string" depends on lots of things like:
- How many colours will you use?
- How many tee's are you going to make?
- What type of tee's are they? (make, weight etc)
- Does your screen printer offer low MOQ (Minimum order quantity)?...see where i'm going with this?..the answer is, go onto google/phonebook find printers, label manufacturers and call them/email them..they wont bite, they want ur business..have specifics in your mind (at the very least how much you want to sell your shorts for then you can reverse engineer it) as those questions were really generic.

I hate to sound like an ass-hole but a lot of these questions can be easily answered by going our there and researching and making phone calls, its basic sh*t. I don't mind giving away information or advice, but at least look like you've made the effort to do it yourself.

people ask about Photoshop and Illustrator alot....

these are 2 programs that do 2 different things. Use whichever one suits your specific need!

i use both all the time.....sometimes i use my tab and draw in photoshop, i like the canvas rotation control and the layer options better i photoshop. i like to vector ink in and do basic coloring in illustrator. I bring it into photoshop for more complex coloring, then bring it back to illustrator for text....

sometimes i do it all in photoshop, scaled to print size, separate my layers and send it to the printer...

sometimes i do it all in illustrator....scan a drawing, ink it, add text, color it, separate layers, send it to printer....

you can use either one.

It has nothing to do with harshness. He didn't give you a direct response because there is no direct answer. There is no 'average' for how much a t shirt should cost. For instance, a company like Diamond or the Hundreds who do numbers in the hundreds will have a unit cost of around $6. On the other hand, small companies who can't make a more than 100 t shirts might have a unit cost of $8 and up. That is why there is not direct answer. I could tell you how much it costs me to make t shirts but I am me and I certainly am doing something different than you. You were told to do research because that is the only way you are going to get a real answer.

He probably asked because companies charge $40 a tee when they only payed $8. But anybody know how to put my own tag on a shirt?

Dude are you kidding? I am asking how much it cost YOU guys on average TO PRODUCE 1 TSHIRT. Is that hard to understand? I just wanted to see what you guys pay so I get an IDEA.
Oct 17, 2012 @ 01:03
^^^^^^^
Im not sure if anyone here only produces 1 shirt.....not sure if screen-printers go out of the way to do all of that work for 1 shirt.


now if you are asking...how many shirts do people print, and how much do they usually cost per?....yo may get more detailed answer.....

You won't be able to get 1 blank tee from a wholesaler, so just buy a blank shirt at a fabric store or something find your nearest screen printer and ask (they may have 1 shirt they can print on for you) It's probably going to cost you around $20 or something just for 1 shirt in total. Have to keep in mind everything we do is normally in bulk; bags, tags, stickers. Or just use some simple online customize tee website. Since you only want 1 shirt.

Do you guys have any advice on what size shipping boxes to get if shipping hoodies and/or a few items? Hat boxes as well?
Oct 17, 2012 @ 13:27
For hoodies you can use large poly mailers. You can get those from ULINE.com

I always use the free priority mailer boxes from the postal service for caps.

Hey everyone, this is my first time posting on these forums, but would like to get some insight. I will be starting a denim line soon, and i wanted to get some ideas of what everyone would like to see from a new raw denim brand. What type of things would make you more prone to wearing a small, american made brand of denim over large competitors such as APC and Naked and Famous. Thank you. Any insight will be great

Oct 17, 2012 @ 15:36
Sure. Or maybe bigger. Fold up any hoodie you own and take some measurements. When in doubt, go bigger!

the average price depends on how many you intend to print....

so......u wuna print 12?,the average will be one price....you wuna print 24?, the average will be a different price.

you wuna print 100? you will get a different average.

but im sure you already know all of this by now. Im sure you googled a screenprinter, looked at the pricelist and came up with an average based on the quantity and price by now......

True, but everyone has a different sense of what good is. It's all preference. But I will agree on this, the last few weeks, some really korny stuff has been posted. IMO.

I'm sure people don't like my stuff but, F^&% em' I love what I print.
