Hi Jason, welcome to the T-Shirt Forums!

I dig your "All up in my Grill" t-shirt :)

You may have some problems with trademarks on a few of your shirts (apple, myspace, etc).

hey Jason, those are some kick *ss designs/graphics, i like the " take kids to pool " one....LOLOLOLOL

They are all winners.

Great Affiliate $$/% too. Good Job.

Q: can you sell them on a site where they make the shirts ?
the reason i ask is because it may be faster and less expensive to ship/deliver local or deal with customs etc.

Lucy, please join the affiliate program. All orders are taken online and shipped out by us to US and CA customers.
Jason, some problems others have faced in the past with similar ventures is shipping across borders, takes longer (based on the cheapest ship method) etc... and that makes it hard to compete.

Have you thought of having the goods made in France for example and allow such an affiliate THERE to supply the French Market ?

I don't think shipping internationally would be a problem at all (at least from the US).

People order t-shirts from other countries all the time. You just have to have reasonable shipping (USPS can provide this) and a unique product that they want to buy.

Shipping from the US to Canada (for example) can actually be cheaper than shipping from California to New York.

Not at this time as we are only concentrating on selling to US and Canada.
i think here in Canada, retail consummers must pay additional $ GST 6% plus duty $$ on imported t-shirts made in USA. With all the computers/databases etc. at point of entry its getting to be a bigger issue then in the past.

I may be wrong, but dont peeps like spreadshirt.com have zone-production ?

dont have my own site, "yet" but I will recommend your program Jason, cause the shirt designs rock.

I think it might depend on the value of the shipment.

For most retail orders like brownturtle would be sending (under $20 value), there are usually no GST/duties to be paid.

Spreadshirt actually started in Europe, so their intitial production facility is there.

They also run off a different business model than a single retail shop. They process orders from 1000's of companies that sell through their service.

They just recently opened a production facility in the US, but it makes more sense (economically) to do this for a site that processes 1000's of orders to the US and 1000's of orders to the European markets for 1000's of different sellers than it would for a smaller company that has just their own t-shirt line selling a few different designs and not selling at that volume.

Hey Jason, very nice designs. Although your site didnt seem to have any actual contests on offer when I clicked on your page link. Your affliate program certaintly looks interesting and I'll be watching your site in the future.

Good luck developing the business.

Nick.
