So I've got all my legal stuff done , got myEIN number today, going to talk with CPA Monday , trade marks filed , now on to getting my stuff made.my question is for those that have started their own clothing brand.When you started did you go directly to manufacturer ? Currently I'm planning to get the shirts from the company doing my screen printing for my first couple of designs, has anyone else started this way? It seems like the cost would be a minimal difference since I have to get the shirts screen printed and relabeled anyway. Just wanted to hear about how you first did your tshirts. In the future we plan on adding shorts , polos and other types of apparel.
