Hello everyone, i am a bit of a newbie to the business and would love some info and advice. Please do not be offended, i know its alot to ask. One of my main questions is very simple. i have only been able to find t shirts at prices no less than like 3 dollars for a 2xl shirt. i was wondering does anyone have the hook up for really cheap tshirts, even by the bulk? I mean like a dollar each or less.
I understand if no one wants to give me this info, its a trade secret. I would be very greatfull as i am just trying to start out with some great designs. i know theres got to be a way to get them from somewhere like china or something at 20 or 30 cents per dollar. havnt been able to find it though....lol......

well thanks for having me regardless and i look forward to great conversation.

20 - 30 cents?! It depends what you refer to as "BULK." 100? 1000? 100000? 1000000?

Re: Trying to get in.....

To be honest i was just throwing out a price. Do you know how the prices are generally structured at this time? Like whats the cheapest you've ever got it? Im just trying to figure out the market on t shirts so i can then see how much i can invest. I was looking at printing equipment and those prices were crazy!!!!....lol. do you do your own printing? do you know of any cheap printing places?...lol.....let me know andThanks for the reply.

Hi Lou
Are you able to get 2xl for $1.00 or so? I order from Sanmar all the time and can't get a 2xl for anywhere close to that. Let me know if I am doing something wrong because I would love to be getting them a lot cheaper.

Thanks

We have a whole section of the forum that discusses where to find wholesale blank t-shirts. Just take a second to read through that section or search through the threads there and you'll find dozens of vendors listed. It's no big secret :)

Wholesale T-Shirts and Other Imprintable Products - T-Shirt Forums

wholesalers related topics at T-Shirt Forums

As for "cheap printing", we generally don't give out printer recommendations in the main forum threads. Since so many of our members are printers, we don't want to encourage self promotional type posts.

However, we do have an area just for t-shirt printing recommendations here:
http://www.t-shirtforums.com/referr...t-your-t-shirt-printing-design-requests-here/

The more specific you can get with your request (what type of printing, how many shirts, what color shirts, how many colors in the design, where you're located, etc), the better leads we can send you when you post there.

All the answers you need are out there. It just might take you a second to use the search box at the top of the page and find the many answers that have already been posted here. You'll be amazed about how much great info you'll find :)

Keep in mind that you may not want "cheap printing", because sometimes "cheap" can mean "low quality".
