Some basics on pricing. Someone mentioned $6 is the average price people pay for tees. This isn't necessarily true but it should be your goal to get as close to six as possible if you don't want to be an online only brand forever. Our near term goal is to get a finished tee down to $6.40.

Online >>> only 2 x Cost = Lowest price or 2 x $6.40 =  $12.80 per tee

Wholesale price is the same as your online price (or higher) but basically shouldn't be below $12.80 (in this example).

Online (with pricing power)/ consignment deal/ retail deal >>> 4 x Cost = lowest consignment and/ or retail price or
4 x $6.50 = $25.60 per tee

So lowest price is 2 x Cost but the closer to 4 x Cost is the goal.
WTF?

price should be consistent to the market on all fronts. if tees go for $25-$35 then that should be your retail price on your site. 

wholesale price should also be consistent to the market....if tees normally wholesale for $12-15, then so should yours.

you do not want to under-sell your potential dealers!
and you do not want to devalue your product in the market.  
That's not what I learned. A healthy margin for a whole sale mark up is 100% of costs. A retailer in turn will want to sell a tee with a 100% markup of the wholesale price. Also, this is the lowest price you should charge not suggested price.

I do not know what you are saying. Retailers will NOT buy your clothes if they do not have at least a 40% markup. They have to have a profit. We make shirts like regular shirts for 8.00 because we hand make them and use a special cloth that is softer and expensive. We sell shirts for 40.00 thats a $32 profit online, but retailers need money to actually run their store so they will buy it at a 40% discount (if they buy more than 75). It is a deep discount but you are making more money quickly and also you have your product in stores which they will always stock up every season which is very beneficial because most people won't buy online because of etc etc. You have to have a contract which states what they can sell your product for and wether or not you can have a discount or sale on your products. You should be selling your products for ATLEAST a 40% cut of your MSRP and only when they buy a certain amount.
So your MSRP is different than your website price? Was just trying to give a basic formula on price and cost goals.

Thank you everyone for coming out to Urban Street Jam over the last weekend. We hope you enjoyed the event as much as we did. There were countless talented individuals in the house, putting up a great show and entertainment for everyone. A big thank to all you supporters out there who came out and supported us, we truly appreciate it.
Cool you had your own booth and shit. In your opinion, was it all worth it? Did the product you sell, and the connections(if any to both), make it worth it? This question is directed not just at Foreground, but everybody else who ran a booth a show.

I've always considered doing one of these, but am unsure if it'd pay off, so pardon me if I'm asking too many questions, just mad curious about the whole thing.
From all the experience we had over the past year, I say its definitely worth it. Attend as much events as you possibly can to get your name out is very important in the development of a startup brand. Exposure is the key. Depends on the type of event you attend, vending fees might varies. When we attend events, our goal is not solely there to make our buck back, but we see it as an opportunity of advertising. Online sales tend to be slower for startups, so your best bet is do offline sales. Once you get the ball rolling, people will come back to you in the future if they like what you bring to the table. Plus, vending out is fun. We meet lots of other vendors and we get all kinds of networking we need to improve our little company. You never know who you'll meet & what connections they have. At the mean time, you'll also have competitors when you attend these events, so what set yourself different from the booth next to you is what will make your stuff interesting.

Is it better to ship in clear poly bags or should send tees in a box?
Box, customers don't like getting wrinkled up t-shirts in the mail. 
it's whatever you prefer.. I ship mine in polybags because I personally fucking love tearing apart a plastic bag for my shirt. It's also cheaper than purchasing boxes (buying boxes in bulk + shipping)
What bags do you use? I haven't been able to find any that are thick and durable enough to be shipping-ready.

Yeah I've been looking around myself, but I've found a site, not sure if it's where everybody else gets theirs, but from what I read on the T-Shirt Forums, it's legit.

Sorry if that was confusing, the MSRP and the price on the website are the same. We sell it for 40% LESS of what the MSRP (website price) for retailers as a wholesale order.

Uline is the best for shipping supplies and boxes. I have clear foldable bags that I keep our shirts in and two different types of polymailers. One paper kind (water resistant) and a normal polybag. The paper kind I use for small orders; a shirt or beanie, the polybags I use for bigger orders and hoodies/crews. Using PayPal's shipping labels and having a kitchen scale can greatly reduce the cost of shipping so your customers don't have to pay more than $4 for anything 12 ounces or under. (or however you have your shipping/weight's set as), that's with first class parcel post 2-5 days. I'm able to ship out a jacket for $2 in change, can't beat that. As a buyer I hate paying more than $5-10 to ship stuff and that can be a make or break decision. If you're going to have hats then yes please use boxes lol.

I can't read the print... Wouldn't know that reads "New Citizen" if I saw someone with that shirt and beanie.
