Hey all,

I'm a 16 year old guy who has been designing T-Shirts for a couple of years now, and i've always had trouble making money (that I spend to print the shirts) back.

Selling is not a problem because my designs are good, and they have sold in the past, but if it costs ME 12 dollars to make a T-Shirt, then I obviously cannot make much of a profit.

At this point I'm getting pretty frusterated with not making money off good designs, so my question is: what would be the best way to make t-shirts at a low-enough cost to where I can still earn decent money?

Most sites I've looked at on the internet cost far too much with shipping, packing, etc. so I'm wondering if investing in a Heat Press is a good idea? Or if there are any sites that would'nt run my wallet dry?

Thanks in advance,

Andrew R.

Thanks a ton, Rodney.

I think I'm leaning towards the heat press method because of the low production cost, and creative freedom. But I'm still a little skeptical about a heat press, because I'm not completely sure how long a design lasts, how good they look, etc. But I'm sure there's a lot of posts and threads on that someplace on the forums.

The screen printing sites that i've used in the past are CafePress, and Shirt Magic. I looked a Spreadshirt for a while, but for some reason never purchased anything.

Thanks again Rodney, and I'll soon post a link to a few designs of mine.

Here are a couple of Designs. I specialize mostly in making Lacrosse T-Shirts.

A shirt I made for my High School Lacrosse Team:

A design for the Cuban National Lacrosse Team:
