T-shirt Business plan and prices

I've got Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. I can make the background of any picture transparent and add text to it. You want a picture that's 2000 x 2000 pixels or more though. Email: ben@qualitycounts.com I take Apple Pay and Zelle.  We can tweak the design via email or Zoom.  Four two shirts, $1.50 discount per shirt.  For three shirts, $2.00 discount per shirt.  The designs of each shirt can be the same or different.  Turnaround time is about two weeks.

I see a lot of short sleeve t-shirts on sale on Facebook for $17.95 but when you go to checkout, with the tax and shipping, they're $25.  My prices include tax and shipping because I'm not paying $11 in advertisement per shirt, which is what one of the t-shirt gurus on YouTube claims it cost.  I've advertised on Facebook and I believe it.  Plus they're paying $30/month to ETSY for the shopping basket and 3% to the credit card people.

Bella+Canvas claims that they take 40% of the impurities out of the cotton. The ink sticks better but the weight is 4.2 ounces. The weight in the Gildan short-sleeve is 5.3 oz or 6.0 oz. for the short sleeve and 6.0 for long sleeve. I prefer the thicker material. Hanes is 5.3 or 6.1 for short-sleeve and 6.1 on the long-sleeve.  For long sleeve, I like the Hanes.  Comfort Colors is also 6.1 oz but the Hanes seems slight stiffer which is my preference.  Comfort Colors is more comfortable in that it's softer and has more give.  Also, it's true to size whereas Hanes runs slightly small.  Bella+Canvas runs at least a size small.  I bought a 'Big Bad John' McCain t-shirt on Amazon once and the material is so flimsy that I won't wear it.

I can change the text to anything you want.  Why not have your shirts a conversation piece?  Don't see what you want?  Go to https://pngtree.com/ or https://www.canva.com/ and find what you want and tell me how you want it personalized.

I'm working on a neon version of this.  One is blue neon, another pink neon.  Maybe throw in a picture of the Bible.  I'm also working on one about how tribalism is America's biggest enemy.

I recently got one of these.  Bella Canvas argues that their cotton has 40% of the impurities removed compared to 20% for ringspun cotton.  I think I like the impurities though.  It seems to have a better feel and seems less wrinkly (more of a stiff material).  For me, softness isn't better.

For long sleeve, there the Bella+Canvas 3501, the Hanes 5186 and the Comfort Colors 6014.  The Bella+Canvas 3501 is 4.2 oz., 100% airlume combed and ringspun cotton.  The Hanes 5186 is 6.1 oz., pre-shrunk 100% ringspun cotton.  The Comfort Colors 6014 is also 6.1 oz., pre-shrunk 100% ringspun cotton. So the Bella+Canvas has a slightly better cotton but I prefer the heavier weight Hanes and Comfort Colors.  The blank for the Comfort Colors costs about $2 each more compared to the Hanes.  I've both both at Amazon (Hanes and Comfort Colors) and I prefer the Hanes.

Before spending you money for printing on cheap blanks, please view this video.  It shows how cheap blanks such as the Gildan brand, which is not made of 100% ringspun cotton, are a poor choice for print on demand.  Basically you're paying for the labor and ink for a cheap shirt that you'll never where just because you saved $4 on the blank.
