Hello everyone,
I do my own T-shirt designs that are uploaded and printed from drop-ship company on-line and have occasionally sold ebay. The costs of doing online dropship (T-shirt + print and shipping) is so much that I lose a lot of potential retail sales from companies that love my designs. I Currently pay $10.99 for white short sleeve small to XL printed and shipped to customer. Black shirt with my design on both front and back is $15.99. 2XL -4XL is extra $3
Does anyone know of a good dropship company I can contact?
why are you not producing them yourself? You are missing out on a lot of profit. You could have plastisol transfers made of your designs and as you get orders make and ship. Price of getting them done depends on the number of colors and quantity made. Lou

Thanks Lou for posting. As a matter of fact, I was interested in doing the shirts myself but my location in American Samoa (South Pacific), though we are a US Territory, it is really difficult for suppliers to ship as we are outside the continental US (5hrs south of Hawaii). Not that its impossible to make a profit. Its just so much more easier and convenient to drop shipment. Maybe i should go try it again. What would I need besides the plastisol transfers you suggested to start my own home base business? Thanks again
Equipment.. heat press, printer. Supplier for shirts. maybe a website for contact and orders. If you have one include in your profile here on the forum.

Could you suggest some brand equipment (printer, heat-press) that are particularly newbie friendly (and cost effective) but good quality enough to get me through trial times?
There are som many presses out there. I would suggest going to the websites and looking at the cost of what each company has. I use a mighty press 15 x 15. I know the price (as everything else) has gone up from what I paid 3 years ago. Go to
www.coastalbusines.com
www.bestblanks.com
www.acetransco.com
www.imprintables.com
www.Alphasupply.com
For printers I recommend Any Epson that uses pigment ink
