Selling the St Patty design
 
Just wanted to share my experience. I have been hitting the bars at night to sell the design, I make a few, I Wear one and give the others to the bartenders and manager. So far, 7 times out of 10 I have left with an order. I'm not getting any sleep but selling a lot of shirts.

Howard,
70% cold call success is remarkable! Brilliant! When I made sales cold call to screen printers I repeat this words right front of the shops. "I will not leave this place without a order, few times and knock the door. My rate 95%+. AA grew rapidly. I had to stay in to manage and only visit big guys.
St. Patty,
Great design works.
Your approach works. (Give couple shirts to management. Money in money out BASIC).
Your first impression works. (We have 5-10seconds. The time of People's brain says like or dislike. Your business card was shirts you were wearing!!!!
Good price helps. (I am sure you had price list. Havingrice list and catalog will make buyer feels he will not get ripoff).
Suggestions and pick some ideas:
Here in Philly who print Phone covers, Canvas are SO SO BUSY. I mean super busy because nothing but he used trick of
$29.99/ea
SALE 60% saving while he is making 500-700% profit. Do more than 50% while you are in big profit business.
Big font $12.
Also make profit on shipping. He had 10+time ROI in few months.
Is he work harder than you? Is he smarter than you? I am sure answer to all is NO.
AA did St. Patty design to all NeoFamily can make money. Jeff, Eric and Me gave our best shot but returns(news of you made money) are very poor. D(A-E) flunk. Sad. While None NeoFamily are begging me left and right for this designs.
I don't know how much you can make with this design but so sure you are that much richer than yesterday.
When my son come to works for AA. I asked him stay next to me while I was interviewing for new job opening. After all interviews, I asked him "Did you see anyone will not work hard?". He said "No". I said "Then all were worked hard but we met few losers today why? ----.
I think they all are not lying they are confusing with themself. They do not know what is hard work is. It applies on same with Smartness.
If you find one person who says "I don't work hard and I am so dumb" please let me know because I never met one yet.
We are= I work hard and I am super smart group. Are we? Really?
NeoFamily, give honest hard work, give mileage on you feet, selling practices will make you best salesman. Money Talks right? Least and last, I do not want to see giving up NeoBaby anymore. She did not do anything wrong but many did abandon NeoBaby. Sorry for long bla bla but~~~.
Let Jeff, Eric and AA have positive feeling that what we did WORKED not wasted.:)
Cheers to ALL NeoFamily! This is the year you will be success. Without your success AA cannot be success.

I tried this in NYC a couple of years ago with no success.There are people here selling T-Shirts as the finished article cheaper than I can buy the blanks.Also like the OP said Beer Companies & Breweries give out loads of Freebies.People IMHO don't want to pay $15/$20 A T-Shirt which to all intent & purposes is going to get covered in Puke & Piss......

Lol,
You must did have Leg and Brain cramps.:D
1. Show us your design which failed.
2. Did you personalized your shirts instead of saying "I can do". This is one of differences than Howard.
3. Will you be in free food line or do you want decent meal to enjoy?
4. When you find oasis in desert you are the Winner. Find Water($) next to river won't be rewarded. Can you imagine the quality they giving away? Will you wear that?
Massage your cramps and let's challenge again. I sure you are fighter then give up before give best shot. Aim between eyes, center stomach where third button down, between legs(your ID, lol).
Are you NeoFamily?
Cheers! Beers are on me always.:)

Peter is correct, you need to personalize with the bar name, wear one and give out to bar staff to wear. People start to compliment the staff, ask if they sell them and then I got um!

Did your design TOP Notch?
Like https://www.t-shirtforums.com/neoflex/t208392-3.html
Your print quality was? You have to have WOW deign and print quality before anything. If you wanted to sell same siht with get paid you were not smart. You have to provide reason why they will pay.
I often hear $5 is too small to works hard. But how many never follows.
Ask, $200/day is bad? It is 40 shirts. It is not about how much money you make per shirts. It is about DO YOU HAVE JOBS for least 8hours everyday? I rather watch baseball football instead of work for $5/shirts?
Answer will be I will work than TV. Then? What are you waiting for?
Cheers! Beers are on me always.

Went to Frederick Maryland to pick up a heat press I bought. Stopped at at Bar and Grill, showed them a St Patty shirt I had in the car and they ordered a bunch! Thanks Jeff!

Re: Selling the St Patty design
 
Glad to hear of your success and happy I could help you make some cash Howard! I wish I had time right now to do the same with the design. It is funny that I designed it and haven't got an order for it yet, LOL. It isn't because I don't want to try but because I have been slammed working every weekend and long days editing my TV show and printing orders. Things are calming down a little this week maybe I will go be a salesman and get some orders before it is too late!
