Re: Small jobs

The most important expense that you have is your time. Do you want to make a living selling shirts? If so, you have to sell a bunch. There are only so many hours in a day. How much time can you...

Re: Small jobs

The small shirt client will typically tell you that they are "just starting out" and that they will be buying more down the road. This will be justification for you to give them a better deal. In...

We finally quit with favors. Owning a print shop is like owning a lake home... you find out you have lots of friends.

Re: How much do I charge for 3 color shirts

What if you figure your costs and calculate a markup and decide that you can make money at 12.00 each... but your nearest competitor is at 17.00 each?

There is no sense leaving money on the...

Re: Whats the preferred DTG printer for mass production?

That is fast.

Production, load, unload, etc.

I agree it is getting better.

If I had a horse that could run 3 times as fast as the other horses you would see him on YouTube TODAY.

I am skeptical. I know technology is getting better. I wish these companies would not over...

I agree.

This thread is claiming up to 800 shirts per hour on a digital machine. I am just offering a picture of what twice that speed looks like. I have never seen anything approaching 1/5 of...

Here (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zl7_PoL5xyI) is the machine in production.

It looks to me like they printed a half dozen shirts in as many minutes on the video, no?

Re: Retail Location VS. Warehouse Location

I charge for a shirt plus printing. My printing costs include screens and films. I do charge the same for repeat orders.

In my experience customers HATE setup charges. They don't like you...

Re: Retail Location VS. Warehouse Location

I understand. I have never been able to crank the price up high enough to cover all of this time. If you can work for 8 hours on pre-press and bill 50 bucks an hour, more power to you. It just...

Of course, just be sure to include all of the hours, not just hours on the press.

Re: Retail Location VS. Warehouse Location

If your pickup costs more than your press you have it backwards.

At 50 dozen an hour our auto spits out an average of 800 dollars an hour. Now, we don't run it around the clock... wish we did.

Re: Retail Location VS. Warehouse Location

Time to print is so small as to be insignificant.

First you deal with the client, if you are lucky it takes less than an hour.

Next you receive his art via email, a .jpg that he claims is all...

I must be doing it wrong. How much do you charge for 18 black shirts with two colors on the front?

Maybe so, but you must be certain that in the end you make money on those 18 shirts.

I find that most of the requests that I get for very small orders are from folks that have already looked...
