someone posted yesterday about a company that did 1 Million TShirts for the Census Bureau in 25 days. DO the math on that! 16hr days, 25 days... that is 2500/hr

For 15 Million by Nov 30... June1 to Nov 30 is 183 days or so. At 7 days a week 16 hrs a day that is 5123 prints an hour. If you go 24/7 non stop with ZERO downtime (likely not possible) then it becomes a more managable 3415 prints an hour.

You will need 6-12 shops doing this job... or a guy with 20-25 automatics (the big ones)

May be better to print the image on the fabric roll to roll on high speed equipment... then cut & sew in overseas sweatshops. Even then you will need 200+ workers going 24x7 for 6 months to sew them if the can do 20pcs an hour.

Henry...I totally agree....I would want to know how/why this potential client would come to one of us...should go directly to the large companies or direct to China. who is going to front the $$ for the blanks..how are you getting paid...etc...Does not smell right to me

Quick note: hi guys, please try to take note what "section" of the forum a post is made in. If someone is looking to hire a designer or t-shirt printer outside of the Referrals and Recommendations area, please do not offer your services in the post. Instead, it's best to hit the "report bad post" button and ask for the thread to be moved to the proper section so you may respond to it without worrying about our no self promotion guidelines. Thanks :)
