ha ha! yeah, I have 1 last new pot to try!If I were you, I'd make the money myself, and keep it in house--if you have the time. (and got rid of that emulsion jell-o. )
Do these prices include the T-shirt cost, do you know?
do it yourself!!! unless you have serious reason why not to print yourself. i see this as good opportunity how to learn. next time you will know what is like to print 2500 shirts. yes it sounds easy and trouble free to subcontract, but anyway even if you subcontract you are still responsible. if they will make a mistakes then it will be still your problem.Hi guys,
I just got a huge order (for me) and maybe I should sub it out. Told I should expect an order for 2500 shirts, but I also want to quote for 1000, incase they bulk at the cost.
I've no idea what to charge on these quantities. Normally we start off at $12.50 for a 1 colour print on a gilden 6.1oz (we are in the caribbean and have high import taxes)
Time is fairly tight. I have to have them done within a week.
White t-shirts (m, l, XL)
simple 1 colour print front and 1 colour back
3 pantone colours, but only 2 colours on each shirt, 1 colour per side. (so divide the shirts into 3 piles and print a different colour for each pile on one screen. then repeat for the back print with the second screen)
It is just a script for the print - 2 very simple slogans front and back, So a very easy print.
You would only need to ship to Florida, which we could pay extra for.
What would you charge for the 1000 and 2500 quantities?
What T-shirt - doesn't have to be heavy
Manual or auto?
How long would it take you?
Thanks guys - really need to make a decision by the end of this weekend as to do it myself or sub it out to a company in the states
I almost got caught in a scam last month. I was going to run the card just like normal and something told me to call it in. I did and the card was good, but the contact person's name and the state I would have been shipping to didn't match. My card processor said not to take it.Do you know this client? Always check. Seen a number of scams out there. I was caught in one myself. Even put through the credit card and it worked. Be careful.
Where in the Caribbean?It's not a scam!
I know the guys who want the shirts. Thanks for the warnings though.
The customer is in the Caribbean with me, so the shirts, (whether blank, or printed) will be shipped once: from the US to the Caribbean!
Maybe - but with the time frame being so tight, I'll stick to suppliers and printers I know and can trust to get it right first time.Just talking out loud.....But I am thinking you can source these in one of the countries Gildan manufactures in for less money than shipping from Florida....Or maybe another brand from Mexico.....Priting in Mexico is 1/3 the cost in the US....
I agree with this and congratsIf I were you, I'd make the money myself, and keep it in house--if you have the time. (and got rid of that emulsion jell-o. )
