Excellent information, especially this part: "We make the shirts on site.... That way the customer gets the transfer on the color and size shirt they want. It cuts down on inventory. It becomes a sort of novelty since the customer has his shirt made while they wait."

Thank you!

Each event is different. one weekend we might sell 10 shirts then 50 or more the next at a similar event. We started this last year. We just went to any event that would allow us to set up. We did carshows, tractor shows, streetfests, fall festivals, swap meets, racing events, biker events and so on.
We kept records of how we did at each one and what shirts and designs sold. We are using that to know where to set up this year and where to stay away from.

One weekend we''ll sell mostly black shirts and the next it might be white.
We'll sell alot of a certain design. So we'll stock up on those. Take them to the next event and not sell one of that design. People are funny. We haven't got it quite figured out.

We make the shirts on site. We have a couple of cabinets of blanks and 2 rubbermaid containers of transfers in x-ray envelopes.

Take business cards. if you have a store, encourage people to stop by.
Decide if you are willing to ship shrits to people if you don't have the right one with you. We do.

Good luck!!
