What type of equipment do you have? For example you can double out some equipment for uses other than shirts and expand your available services. Also, do you have any online store?

You start out by approaching people you know who are in business, these are mostly likely your first customers. Also ask for referrals then when you call on them just mention that you made some shirts for your mutual friend Mary Lou who mentioned they may also need some shirts. Just take a few sample of previous shirts with you in case they want to see them.


What kind of feedback are you getting from the boutiques on your designs?

is http://[URL="http://www.pinkuapparel.com/PINKAPPAREL/Home.html"]//www.pinkuapparel.com/PINKAPPAREL/Home.html[/URL] your online shop??

why just sell your design T-shirt? to fully utilize your investment (web site, printer, ..etc) why not let the customer to design their own T-shirt and you print for them?

of course, this can only earn little money ..:)

now about the other thing ok i'll do the shirts but what else should i bring? any papers, flyers? do you know how to price the shirts? cuz i'm having the plastisol transfers done so i have to add that to the value of the shirt and then what double it?

thank you for all your help

I would suggest that you firstly do a complete costing to produce the tshirts
I quick wander around the boutiques will give an indication of the prices the final customer is prepared to pay
Difference between the two above figures is ultimately the profit to be shared between you and the boutiques - you to decide the split
