Default As a start up how much is the minimum price for a digital printed shirt?

I've been wondering, because my site shop isn't yet giving me profit, It maybe maybe because of the pricing or so?

You should have a price calculator that figures out all of your overhead. With the one I created in excel, I add in the cost of the ink per cc, the cost of the shirt, if selling in state the cost of tax, I don’t have to figure in labor for an employee because I am a one man operation thus far. I also added a profit per shirt cell so i can manipulate the bottom line (i always start out with $10 per shirt profit as a goal). Depending on the amount of ink used per shirt, and whether or not it is a dark color or cmyk, my shirts still come in at $25 or less (way less in some cases) and I make a decent profit per shirt and the customer is happy with a custom reasonably priced item.

That is the price range for my area. You can check around in your area and see what the others are charging. Don't quote me but I have seen custom DTG prints go for $35 and up. It is all determined by the market in your area. You will have to know how much your ink costs per job to better gauge the cost based on size of the print.

My target area is US and my store is quite new though so I'm researching for possible effective ways to make my shirts look good and pricing also.

The cost for per shirt depends on print size and the quantity that you order. You can get it as cheap as $8 each if the quantity is not too small.

Quick couple question....are you making all these prints on demand? Do you have this in inventory? Not sure if you are just marketing to people to print all the ready made design or are you also doing custom printed jobs with their own artwork. IF you are just printing the ready made design then you are limiting yourself to people who "like" the designs. In order to turn a profit that would require lots of marketing and branding. I have a print shop that does just custom work. I have my own line. But that sells very little in reality. Nice to have a brand and talk about it but unless you have some major creative marketing it is a constant battle to make a profit. I make alot more printing for local businesses. It isn't as glamorous but it makes a profit
