I'd buy that "Turntup" bucket hat. PM me when you drop it.
Anyways, how much is it costing you guys to start this up? Big Cartel payments, Shirt Samples and Orders, Tags, Stickers, etc.?
I know this is a dumb question, but do y'alls shirt graphics have that sort of shiny feel (Think a Nike Shirt), where you know it was placed on or do they have the graphics where it was sewn in, like say, those graphic tees at walmart where there is no difference in texture between the shirt and graphic, I think the difference between these two is called Silkscreen and Cut and Sew, but I could be wrong.
Where do you guys usually wholesale from, which has the best combo of quality and affordability, right now I'm looking at buying some tees, raglans/henleys, and hoodies from American Apparel.
Where do you guys get tags?
And lastly, how do you guys go about transferring your graphics to the computer. Right now I'm using a scanner and GIMP, but it's hard to kind of get it to where you can't tell it was initially a pencil drawing. Like I'm trying to make a shape with one letter inside (custom font so I can't get it off the internet) and make it so I can make the shape different colors with the actual letters the same color everytime . . . for all intents and purposes, the same colorblocking as Supreme (no it's not a box logo)?
Could someone help me out, would be greatly appreciated. Have a notebook full of designs, plenty of clever ideas for tees, and a marketing plan to generate hype, I just need someone to help me out as far as pricing and method.
damn ape....u really need a ton of help, first you should work on getting the designs from your book to the computer....draw it, scan it, finish it!
shinny plastic like print feeling is usually heat press.
Cut and sew is simply creating your garment from scratch ...as apposed to using a blank ( which was also made from scratch....so its not really a big deal for simple things like tees). It give you more control over the specifications of your garment.....but requires some insight on manufacturing,...can be less expensive per piece, but with MUCH higher minimum order requirements.
