But don't forget that the customer is going to pay shipping on top of that $15-16, so why can't you charge shipping on top of that too?

A "real t-shirt business" - what does that mean? I think anyone with experience as an entrepreneur will tell you that you only get paid for two things: marketing and innovation. With t-shirts, you are not really innovating, so you better be marketing.

In the end, if you are a "business" owner, you want to own the business, not have the business own you. This means that if you are planning to do all the work yourself (fulfillment, etc.), then you do not have a business, you have a JOB.

If you want to have a business, one that earns you money while you're on vacation, then you need to be "outsourcing" (for lack of a better word) everything. If you only make a 10-20% margin on your shirts, but you don't do any physical labor at all and it doesn't take any of your personal time to sell that shirt, what's the problem? You can sell a lot more shirts that way. This is how business owners and entrepreneurs must think. This is their mindset.

Marketing is everything. Outsource all the labor.

Nike doesn't make the shoes, they MARKET the shoes and have someone else manufacture them. The company that manufactures the Nike shoes may make a healthy profit, but so does Nike because they have lower overhead because they've outsourced all their manufacturing and everything else that makes up most of a company's expenses.

Anyway, that's just my two cents...
