ok, so i have gathered that ringspun cotton, and 50/50 blend shirts seem to give the best perception of quality to most folks...

if i am ordering thes shirts in color and in a good "weight" what would be a fair price?

my local guy is charging abit more for these shirts...

i can get jerzees shirts for around 3 bucks thru him, and a hanes beefy-t for 8 bucks...

from other posts i have seen here, it seems he may be charging me way too much... i just want to make sure that i am not comparing apples and oranges here.

Are you getting these wholesale? How many are you getting? White or colors?
White jerzees should be costing about half of what he is charging.(under $1.50)
White beefy-t's should be about a fourth of what he is charging.(around $2.20-$2.50)
This is for 1 shirt!
If he is telling you these are wholesale prices, you need to run from him fast!
If you don't have the ability to buy wholesale, you need to get that fast!

i believe this was non bulk pricing, he did say that the more we ordered the less it would cost.

Take note: the prices I quoted were not bulk prices. They were for 1 shirt!

You really need to find somewhere else to get your shirts from! If you pay his prices, you will definitely be paying at least twice, and in some cases, four times as much as you should be paying!

No problem. I love to help people when I can!(maybe I should have been a doctor):rolleyes: Where are you located? If you can't find a good source locally, I'm sure that even with shipping prices, you can come out alot better by buying them online. I don't use those shirts, but I know there are people on here that do, and that get them online. If you don't have a tax id or resale #, you can check out www.blankshirts.com. They have pretty decent prices. I'm sure others here can give you better online sources, but that is at least a starting point for you.

Yeah, but chances are you would probably be able to get them for about the same price he does.
you mean that i would still end up paying around the same amount that i am now, or that i would get them for around the same price he gets them for before mark up??

No, not the same price you are now.

If he said he can give you wholesale prices, you can probably get those same shirts for what he pays for those shirts before he marks them up to you. Check out the website I gave you earlier and you will see what I'm talking about.
