How To Start A T-shirt Business

How To Start A T-shirt Business


How to Start a T-shirt Business And Succeed

There are many things to consider when determining how to start a t-shirt business. The first thing, obviously, is capital. Youll need to determine how much you are willing and able to spend on your business venture, create a detailed budget and stick to it explicitly.

Secondly, youre going to need a t-shirt press! Before you buy one, make sure you spend some time doing thorough research into all the different makes and models. Find out what they can and cannot do. Youll need to think about the kind of designs youre hoping to put on your shirts and what sizes they need to be. Youll also need to give some thought to how long it takes the press to mark a shirt and how many shirts can be done at the same time.

 

The third thing you need to think about is marketing. No matter what the product is that youre going to be selling, you need to market your products or youre never going to be successful. Youll want to consider using free marketing, too, such as social networking platforms and blog. Remember that the best marketing is word of mouth. Also, be sure you wear your own products. Youll want them out there in the public eye, with your website on the back as much as possible.

Finally pricing. There are a lot of things to consider when determining what price point you want to set for your t-shirts. There is the cost of the shirt, the cost of running and working the press, shipping, taxes and whatever cost you incur from running a website and a shopping cart. The secret in how to start a t-shirt business is thinking of all of these things before hands and mapping out a plan.

Concert Shirts
A live performance T-shirt is a T-shirt that is affiliated with a live performance or a live performance trip, generally rock or metal. Bands and melodious groups often encourage themselves by conceiving and trading or giving away T-shirts at their shows, trips, and events. A live performance T-shirt normally contains fine thread screened graphics of the title, logo, or likeness of a melodious entertainer. One well liked graphic on the back of the T-shirts is a records of data about the band's present trip, including tour towns (sometimes identifying venues) and corresponding dates.
One of the most well liked colors for concert T-shirts is a flat black. Fans purchase or obtain these tops to wear to future concerts, often with casual trousers, dark tinted trousers or dresses. followers may wear the top of one band to a concert of another to display their flavour in a specific kind of melodies or loyalty to another band or kind of melodies.ess simpler than ever:
 
Tourist Shirts 
A tourist T-shirt (or souvenir T-shirt) is a shirt associated with a journey or vacation. In latest years T-shirts have become a well liked gift or souvenir no issue which country or town the person has gone to. Tourist T-shirt designs are normally printed with images and phrases directly associated with a specific town, homeland or culture. The T-shirts express or display certain thing about the place or locations a person has been. Tourist T-shirts are generally a cheap souvenir and therefore a popular shopping piece throughout overseas travel.
 
Sports Team Printing
Whether it’s a childrens team, high school basketball team or even a recreational volleyball association, the one thing that every group desires is a way to effortlessly recognise their players. So what better way to recognise each contestant than by putting a name and number on the consistent that they are wearing?
 
Using heat-applied graphics is the easiest and most economical way to number uniforms.  All you need to do is print a graphic on the specified paper type and follow the very simple heat printing directions utilising your heat press and you can customize a garment in less than 10 seconds! 
 
Some advantages of heat press printing:
• we set up our packages to teach you from the get go
• make one-of-a-kind, one-by-one pieces
• Portability of equipment
• The proficiency to create anything from a one-color to full-color design at minimal cost
 
 
Ways to promote YOUR Heat Press Business
1. Place you business name inside the garment where it cant be seen when worn (such as a tag) for free advertising to whoever purchases the final product.
 
2. Sponsor a sports team or recreation league and make the uniforms for them  yourself. Press your business title or logo on the back or arm for added publicity. (By extension fans may want to buy team shirts for themselves so they will come to you for them).
 
3. Contact the schools/educational institutes in your area to inquire about mass producing products for their stores such as clothing pieces, bottles, etc. Also try to advertise in school news letters. 
 
4. Decorate your Business area with past works/jobs to show off to new potential customers. Try to include more than just shirts to show of the many possibilities. 
 
5. Try using your heatpress in a publically visible spot to gether the attention of people as they pass by as they may be intrigued as to how the items are made and would like to learn how.
 
6. If it relates to what they are ordering maybe try to get them to order another object with the same logo. An example is if they ordered sports teams shirts then maybe you could convince them to also get Water Bottles or Stubby Holders with the teams logo on them too. 
 
7. Done jobs for a school, team or business? If they have a big fair/open day ask them if you can advertise or set up a stall. Be sure to bring a long some of the products you made for them to show off and to attract people. 
 
8. Social Media. Promote your products with a website, facebook page, twitter etc. Do not be afraid to fit these somewhere on the products you make (As mentioned before somewhere that can't be seen when used/worn such as a tag).
