Selling T-Shirts to Retailers
I have a shirt that I sell well to a large niche of the American population via my online store at birddoctor.biz. Now I am interested in having the design mass produced and sold to retailers who serve the same niche. The main group of people buying these shirts would appreciate the shirts being American Made and, in the interest of making the most profit possible, I have some questions.I work with a screen printer already and I can get these shirts made for about $3.00 a piece if ordered in quantities of 300 pieces (a safe start). The way my printer works is he buys the blanks from his supplier and then prints them in his shop. Would it be easier to use a clothing manufacturer who can fabricate the shirts as well as print on them? Does such a company exist?If the shirts came from a supplier and had tags on them, would it be wise to have the shirts re-tagged with my brand?If I am selling to retailers, should I not put hang tags or stickers on my shirt? Or are they cool with stuff like that? The retail shops that they would be sold (hopefully) to are small company owned type shops. I don`t think there would be any corporate red tape to sort through.Let`s say these shirts cost me $3.00/piece to produce. How much should I sell them to the retailer for?That`s it for now. I look forward to hearing what people think.
