I am here as a consumer (although would love to make my own shirts, I tried that route once with transfer paper and printed transfers and using my iron and it did not work too well).
I have just spent a while looking all over the web (hence, how I wound up here) and thought you all seemed really nice and that I hope that I can ask a few questions.
I am not looking to make a T-shirt company. What I am looking to do is to find a company that makes or sells bulk T-shirts. I know I can go find a blank T-shirt supplier, and there are many of them, but I was looking to find somewhere that maybe stores like the dollar stores gets their supply from.
I work from home doing medical transcription and I wear sweatpants and T-shirts all the time. I usually buy my T-shirts from the dollar stores i have local in my area; however, i was looking to buy more than the usual 5 I buy at dollar store. These generally have cute sayings on them and run about 5-6 dollars. I also buy them super huge, like 3X, because anything smaller bugs me to death. If I even feel the material anywhere other than the shoulders, I have to change the shirt. I also have 3 children who I would also love to buy some of these for. In particular, my daughter is at the age now where the junior/large child shirts are too tight and the older junior/adult shirts are too revealing, tight, have too much cleavage, etc., so was looking to buy her a bunch of just regular T-shirts with cute, funny pics and or sayings on them.
Does anybody know where I might get something like this?
I have checked Ebay but other than single person sellers (like not stores I mean, sellers who only sell a few items), and the cheapest I have seen on ebay for a regular T-shirt with just writing on the shirt ora small picture is about 8 or 9 bux.
I am pretty sure that some buyers go and buy a ton of these from the dollar stores, and then sell them on Ebay, and it seems they are charging more than the pay for them, which I guess is the purpose of selling on Ebay, but I would think there would be one or two sellers who remained around 5 or 6 bux a shirt. For instance, I just bought a lot of 6 paris of sweatpants for 29 dollars, and then another one too. So 29 divided by 6 is 4 or 4.50 per pair of sweatpants, and that is what I am looking for.
Anybody have any ideas?
Thanks for reading.
P.s. I sure hope this is not taken as a service reuqest, I am not looking for anybody here to sell me T-shirts, but rather, maybe know of a supplier like with the blank T-shirts.
Thanks, ArtIsMyLife, I cannot seem to find regular plain old T-shirts, but it is a very interesting site and one I can probably use to buy school clothes from. Thanks!!!
