Thanks a whole lot your emails and free webinars have been very encouraging and helpful I have started the process and have some designs completed .right now I’m working on one that i did use craft store iron on transfer paper just to see if i was satisfied with the look but would like to use the plastisol you discussed inorder to put it in motion. I have been taking Graphic design for certification and almost done but would not say im a pro yet but working with my ideas on a tight budget where do I go now?

    HI Tawanna,

    Here’s some more information you may find useful!

    Your biggest expense getting started will be the heat press machine 16×20 in size. We no longer sell the machines. The brand of machines we recommend, Hotronix. You can contact Stalhs directly to purchase the machine. The machine starts at $995 and up. http://hotronix.com

    We recommend screen printed transfers. We do not recommend printing from a printer just for the sake of quality. You want to be in business selling products that will allow people to buy from you over and over again; as well as refer others to you. Sadly, printing from a printer will not allow you to do so.

    Once you have your designs created; you can send the digital files of the designs to transfer companies. They can take your design and screen printed directly onto the special release paper. There are no printers involved in this process. All the designs are printed by screen printing equipment. Once the designs have been screen printed onto the special release paper instead of directly on shirts. They’ll send you the transfers; which you’ll press directly onto the shirts using the heat press machine you’ve purchased.

    The cost of having designs printed will vary; it depends on the amount of colors you have in the design. The more colors you have in the design the more it will cost. If you’re starting with a limited budget; we recommend no more than 2.
    Another fact in cost of getting the designs screen printed will be determined by the amount of transfers you have printed. The less you have printed the more you’ll pay. The more you have printed the cost to have the transfers printed, cost drops.

    We have a source list available for purchase. The source list includes various companies to purchase custom, and pre-made transfers from a list of transfer vendors as well as vendors to purchase blank shirts.

    The price for custom transfers will be determined by the amount of colors you have in your design. If you are on a tight budget then I would recommend no more than 2 colors in the design. The more colors in the design the more it will cost to have the designs screen printed onto the release paper.

    If you would, please click the link below to purchase the source list.

    Or you can locate a local screen printer in your area to screen printed directly onto blank shirts you supply the screen printer to print on. It’s actually cheaper to purchase your own shirts and give to the screen printer. The price once again will be determined by the amount of colors in the design and how many shirts you have printed. You’ll need to locate a local screen printer in your area to determine prices.

    We have created a training course that will walk you through the entire process from beginning to end. There’s no reason in trying to figure all this out on your own, cut your learning curb in half! We’ve done all the hard work for you. All you have to do is take advantage of the blueprint we’ll provide, learn the material and apply it towards your business. This isn’t an easy task, this isn’t some get rich quick scam and it will require a lot of hard work if you expect to receive any type of results. Honestly, your results depend on you.

Hi Cartess Ross!
Thank you for giving back and desiring for others to be successful by sharing your story and the information on starting a T-shirt Business.
We have over 50 t-shirt ideas, several are not related to one another. How can we sell our t-shirts reasonably and make a profit when creating custom designs, offering them in more than one solid color? Meaning, do we print ourselves or outsourcing to vendor. When trying to get large orders to fill we can’t compete because our price is hiring then the average t-shirt business/store in our area. Do you recommend ordering transfers/plastisols directly from China? Have you had any experience with purchasing directly from China, if so how was it?

Mr. Ross, I am doing my due diligence as pertaining to the business, that being said I have two questions for you. First how do you price your shirts( for example the blank shirt is $3.00, the transfer is $5.00 and the shipping is $5.00 equaling $13 …what is rule of thumb for the retail pricing?). Second, what is a good starting point for t shirt blends 100% cotton,100% pre shrunk cotton, 50/50 blend or something else?

Thanks for all of your help, it is not falling on deaf ears!

    HI Troy,

    You’ll need to base your price on what it cost you to make the shirts and what type of profit you wish to make. We recommend shirts that are either 50-50 or 100% cotton.
