Everyone here has been so helpful I wanted to share this item that folds t-shirts in seconds. It is great that you get two because your girlfriend or wife is going to snatch one.

Forget about the junior size go for the big ones. I know some people know how to manully fold with that tee shirt trick but I cannot so here is my trick. Great presentation when your done.

Do you have a trick of the trade you would like to share it could be anything?
I hope Rodney does not mind, I make no profit from this I wish I did. :)

No worries :) The flipfold has been brought up here before a couple of times. You can also buy it direct from the manufacturer from their website at: http://www.flipfold.com/

Sharing tips is always a good thing :)

Here's mine:

If you are in the US and using USPS to ship your t-shirts, save a trip to the post office and use their free Carrier Pickup service. Your normal postal carrier will pick up your packages at your mailbox or front door!

Maybe you could expand upon that for those of us that might not understand what you mean :)

Tricks of the Trade Sales Tip.

After you make the sale, change the subject.

after you make the sale, change the conversation subject to the weather or something. If you continue to talk about what you just sold, the customer may change their mind, or you may say something that will make them change their mind.
so after you make the sale. Thats it, done deal. Dont keep talking about it afterwards to the customer. :)

It works, I have done this many times. Spending money is a big decision. If they dwell on it too much, they start to lose confidence.

Better to make things light and happy.. tell a joke.. ask them a question about something else. :) It's also a good way to build a relationship with your customer for the future - next time you see them, you will have more to talk about than just business stuff, and they won't feel like you are just after their money.

I have two tricks that I can recommend. The first I have posted on this forum recently, but I think it’s a good one so I’ll repeat it here: price your shirts so that after taxes your customer gets change back from a $20. Here in Los Angeles the sales tax is 8.25% so I charge $17 per shirt and after taxes it’s $18.40. People walk away with a paper dollar and a bunch of coins and my shirts look like a steal.

The second trick is to offer a discount price followed up by a coupon. At conventions I tend to sell shirts at $17, but if you buy two or more the price drops to $15 each (a deal which I do not offer on my website). If people buy one shirt from me at the show, I will give them a one-time use coupon to get $2 off each shirt they buy from my website in the next month. My theory is that there are a finite number of dollars in the dealer room and people have to be choosy with what they buy. By offering them a deal twice I hope to get the sale at least once.
