Rickerwear said:Cafepress has very good to me. The products ship fast and the customer service is good. The quality is about as good as it can be with the print-on-demand process. Most of all the commission checks keep on coming. I would reccomend tham.
There are similar services available internationally (like spreadshirt).If you're not, the exchange rate + shipping rates can kind of kill you...
...which is still significantly less than the average price of a t-shirt bought locally on the Australian market.funtimesx said:All I was getting at was that at a semi-decent markup, the women's T is $15.99 USD. Add $7USD shipping, convert to AUD and at current exchange rates, you're looking at about $30AUD for the shirt.
It's true that the Australian market mostly expects a quality product that CP can't provide.funtimesx said:I think, though, at least in this country and the market I'm dealing with, it won't fly too well - you're talking about a more "premium" priced t-shirt [...] and it leaves me thinking that CP may not be the best choice for an Australian audience.
I haven't done any hard research, so the figures are certainly up for debate, but I'd say the normal price is $38-45. It's certainly not unusual to see prices of $50-60. It is unusual to see prices below $30.RAHchills said:out of curiosity, what is the average t-shirt cost in the Austrailian market, in AUD?
One common misconception with new merchants (especially with artwork and t-shirts) is the incorrect assumption that your customers are as miserly as youOMG, OK I am miserly! I don't think I have ever paid more than $30AUD for a shirt. Usually mine are in the $15 - $25 range.
It's all relative I think Hanes blanks are generally good blanks. The Hanes Beefy is a very high quality tee by most standards. With a general audience, I don't think you can go wrong with a Hanes blank.but I had thought some of the Hanes and Gildan t-shirts were not very into the "low-quality-but-cheap" category as a lot of people seem to use them
A t-shirt priced at $13 USD plus $7-$8 USD for international shipping is definitely possible. You could sell for even higher without worry.and it seems to me that even after shipping from the US, doing the transfers, etc. you could sell those for $20 and still make a decent profit?
You could probably get 50 different answers to that question. The key is finding a blank that you like and that you think your customers will wear with comfort/style. For some, that's a Gildan, for other's that's an AmericanApparel blank, for others that's a proclub or royalapparel tall t-shirt.Am I wrong - what do you consider a good quality blank?
Holy cow, that's great news. Thanks.Solmu said:I haven't done any hard research, so the figures are certainly up for debate, but I'd say the normal price is $38-45. It's certainly not unusual to see prices of $50-60. It is unusual to see prices below $30.
