You can't without specific permission. And they probably won't give it to you if they have an official event shirt they sell.Just curious. If you pay for a booth at a music festival, can you sell shirts with the festivals name on it, or does that usually require a separate fee?
We do alot of school athletic events and we have found through our experiences that we are close to 20% conversion of sales using the # of athletes present, but there are a number of things that affect this like the design (is it cool?), the economic status of your clients, the type of event. And you definitely want to do transfers. I could not imagine how much money you would waste pre printing shirts. Sometimes you do great when you think you are just going to do average and unfortunately the opposite can and will happen too. You also have to think about the weather. It can play a huge roll in your success. Good Luck!
You will always have a higher conversion rate with a common-interested audience. Festivals are a completely different animal. Don't go in thinking you will get close to that rate.We do alot of school athletic events and we have found through our experiences that we are close to 20% conversion of sales
Over the years i have done many outdoor events and printed thousands of event shirts for other vendors.Im trying to get in on vending at some music festivals this summer and i was wondering around how many shirts I should bring. thanks for any help on this subject
That is a cool idea, I am going to try that..... date half and the other half without a date. I will be doing the Caribbean Festival this Memorial day and I am going to see how that works out. I am only going with about 400 shirts as this event is not as large as others I attend but I am hoping for good sales.Over the years i have done many outdoor events and printed thousands of event shirts for other vendors.
Best way to know is year to year experience at the same event.
The one event that i still am part of, we take 600 dozen to that event. We have always been able to sell 400 dozen and sometimes over 600. After years of doing this event i learned to date the first 400 dozen and not date the last 200 dozen.
If any of the 200d is left over we date those on the back for next year and sell them first
I think the website idea is a good one, including shirts. But I don't think it will give you an indication of what you will sell on site. How could it? Certainly, you should expect to sell more at the event, but there is no formula for how much more.We are supposed to be providing official apparel for a VERY LARGE event later this year. They are already creating somewhat of a frenzy - and anticipate attendance at around 250K. Yes - a quarter million people.
Obviously, going the transfer route would not work well at an event of this size. WE were thinking 2 different shirt designs and a custom cap design, as well as other types of chachkis... (keychains, flashlights, etc).
We've been throwing around the idea of offering them for sale online to start with - with a coupon when they buy their tickets. I would think this would give us some sort of idea of how many we'll need at the actual event.
I would welcome any input on numbers that we should take with us - we've not done any ventures of this magnitude before.
Red flags, red flags, red flags. This changes the entire dynamics. Firstly, you can't and shouldn't trust the 250K attendance propaganda. Because that's just what it is.this is the "first annual".
At school events what types of transfers do you sell? Are they mostly geared towards the school or the sport, or more general?
