I'm setting up my price guide and need a little help. I called a few shops around town and came up with this. Feel free to suggest changes. I'd like to how much you charge and whether I'm charging too little or too much and maybe I'm missing something I should be charging, etc.

Here's what I came up with...

Front Image/One Color S-XL:
$5.50 per White Shirt
$6.50 per Black Shirt
Front Image/One Color XXL-UP:
$7.50 per White Shirt
$8.50 per Black Shirt

Front & Back Image/Limit Two Colors S-XL:
$6.00 per White Shirt
$7.00 per Black Shirt
Front & Back Image/Limit Two Colors XXL-UP:
$8.00 per White Shirt
$9.00 per Black Shirt

Additional Colors :
$0.50

Screen Burned and Saved for 1 year:
$15.00

Artwork:
$25

Thank you all for your time.

I am not a printer but I would say those prices are too low. Having the lowest price in town could hurt business in the long run....Unless you also do the best work in town. I personally would not go with the cheapest just because I am a firm believer in you get what you pay for.

I would raise them a little bit. Just my 2 cents.

Thanks for your input. I'll consider it. I too am a true believer in "You get what you pay for". I don't want my customers to have that type of impression. I figured the price would lure them but indeed, it could backfire. Let's hear what these printers have to say.

So youre saying if they want 50 white tees, front and back image, same color, charge them 80 cents times 2 plus shirt cost and shipping. Therefore, my profit would be 1.60 per shirt sold?

Here is my first order. 100 shirts. 50 black and 50 white. Front and back designs, same color. One of the artwork images was created by me. What exactly would be your grand total?

Thanks!

From my experience the last few months, twenty dollars per shirt for an original graphic produced on a Cintiq 2100UX in photoshop and then vectorized in illustrator for the customer. Customer gets a copy of illustrator file which he/she can then take to any printer across the nation and get his tshirt logo placed on anything from a business card to the side of a building with zero pixelation. Screen printing includes 4-6 colors. We print the shirts manually and the time the customer wants from the artist and the products they demand are all assuredly the highest quality at 20 dollars per shirt..regardless of size. IMHO you can make more than what you currently have priced out.

kabal, you would charge $1.60 for the printing.$40.00 for the set up charge.add in your shirt cost and shipping.Then add what you want for profit.

example....
50 white tees @ 1.50 each= 75.00
1.60 printing each= 80.00
40.00 set up 40.00
shipping 25.00
------
148.00 now divide that by 50 to get your peice price= $2.96 cents
ok so lets decide that you want to sell these shirts to your customer for $8.00 each.

8.00
- 2.96
---------
5.04 profit per shirt x 50 shirts = $252 profit for this job.
