[Quote]They're right and wrong. If it were the 80s your probably wouldn't have a problem. "California" will probably hurt you domestically but if you sell it right you might do well overseas. I think your bigger problem might be the "Creeze" part.

[Quote]I'm pretty sure it's the location of manufacture not the origin of the raw materials.

[Quote]Alstyle might have private label US manufacturing. The 1101 Murina Tee is "Made in USA" according to their wholesale website.

[Quote]Yeah. We're in the US. We could possibly go in with you. Any chance having something manufactured and delivered around August?

[Quote]I asked my printer that same question today. All he could come up with is American Apparel and Rothco.

@fosace don't worry about it. Pick a price range and stick to it.

Replied in Starting a New Line/Brand Feedback Thread, 2 Weeks ago in Fashion

@fosace charge what makes sense to you. If it's not worth your time to sell tees for $20 to $25 then don't. Especially if people are paying $42.

[Quote]I'm not sure what you're asking. But we use Illustrator and Photoshop to design. And then you'd use a plugin to upload the pics onto your wordpress template. Sounds like you'd want something simpler.

[Quote]These guys are legit http://diecutstickers.com/ Ask for Jerry and tell him you found out about them through Shillingford Company (we don't get anything but maybe he'll cut you a deal).

[Quote]We've done a few Pop-Up Shops. Not sure what you're questions are (or that I'm an expert) but here are some basics. 1. Find a space (could be anywhere but use common sense) 2. Be open for a short period of time. Could be over a few days but build urgency. 3. Advertise locally (not just online). The rest of this is kind of optional but important. 4. Create an atmosphere/ merchandising. 5. Have a hook >>> alcohol, live music, dj, food, discounts... 6. Get sponsors (we got free soda from a local company), we did one at a brewery with food trucks. 7. A Square (or something like that). PM me up if you have more questions but location and advertising is key just like if you had a retail location.
