Default Marking up to sell at Wholesale to a customer

I have a customer who wants wholesale prices of shirts. I have the decoration part down as that pricing is separate. But it is the mark up for a wholesale price on just the shirt itself that I am struggling with. I have done a full spreadsheet of cost, mark up, plus shipping... whew. Seems the shirt suppliers have a break only at 200 shirts or 250 and that is only 5 to 10 cents a shirt. I see that it will be me swallowing the discount.. which is still fine because the number of shirts goes up. My cost of each shirt lets say is $2.80. Anyone have a formula they use, we are talking numbers of 48, 72, 144, 216, 288, 500 shirts. Any advice of experienced work would be highly appreciated. This is the shirt only. My cost if around $2.80 each.
Thank you!!!

What quantity is your customer wanting per design and shirt color and size? That will determine what you can do.

What is your shop rate per hour? That will determine what you can do.

Make them pay in advance unless they can establish credit with you (DnB report at least).

More info will get you a better answer.

Hi Binki

The amounts are in my post... "we are talking numbers of 48, 72, 144, 216, 288, 500 shirts. "
(I am a Sublimator myself but offer other types of printing)

Again, I have the print part done as I am outsourcing to a Silk Screener and that I added 1.3% across the board to their prices to me, to get the wholesale price I will charge my customer.

So now it is the shirts themselves that I am wishing to address. As if I sold them plain.

The reason I asked was it is interesting that the suppliers of shirts (AlphaBroder, Augusta, etc. they do not reduce their price until 200 or 250 shirts. And then it is like 5 cents a shirt. But I now see that I have to do that on my end. I will have to let it go for less in small increments then.

I was wondering what 'formula' other's work with.
Shirt start at $2.80
I think maybe this?
up to 48 shirts $2.80 x 2.0 (200% increase) = $5.60 each shirt
$5.60x48=$268.80 +shipping costs $26 = $6.14 a Shirt
up to 72 shirts $2.80 x 1.9% = $
up to 144 shirts $2.80 x 1.8%
up to 216 shirts $2.80 x 1.7%
up to 288 shirts $2.80 x 1.6%
up to 500 shirts $2.80 x 1.5% (150% increase) = $4.20 a shirt

I will call them today so their people can work up a better quote for me.
