Hello,
I am new and starting out. I was wondering when you are pricing your shirts to sell is there a profit percent that you are looking to make? Like double? i am going to be selling on ebay as well.
Thanks Tim

I am curious about this as well. I am going to be producing shirts for other businesses and was wondering how you guys are charging for that. I may also make some shirts that make a statement or Art Shirts...I would assume the pricing structures are completely different.

yes your goal is at least 3x your cost but if it cost you $10 to print a shirt it will be hard to sell them for $30, not impossible but hard. now this is for your own brand, if you are doing these for clients and they want 50 shirts and it still cost you $10 to make to even make it worth your while you would need to charge at least $15 per shirt Times 50 shirts that's $750, there is no way a client will pay that for 50 shirts. If they do please send them my way.

A more reachable goal when you first start is 2X your cost. My shirts run me $7.02 on average, I sell for $20, so I get nearly 2.5X my cost, but if I wanna make a deal say 2 for $30 I still double my money, if friends or family want a lot I can still afford $10 a shirt and still make profit while giving them a deal. When you get bigger and your working capital goes up then you can order in bigger bulls like 96 shirts per design and your cost will go down allowing you to get 3X and sometimes 4X profit. But for now shoot for double atleast. If you can get that then something needs to be changed.

People saying they make $15-20 per a shirt are clothing lines, not screen printers. The margin for screen printers is going to be a lot lower in general.
