how to start your own t-shirt business

Updated on May 10, 2016

t-shirts will never stop selling.Youngsters and even elders will never stop wearing t-shirts so why not start a t-shirt business and start making money and a lot of money by properly planned business but before you jump into the tee shirt business you might need to know how it works or otherwise you might end up loosing a lot of money.I personally plan to start a t-shirt business and i thought it will be nice to share my knowledge with everyone.

First thing you need to do is to think of it as a business adventure because it won't be so easy to make your place in the market as there's too much competition already .To make your place you need to come up with some ideas related to your designs and marketing.

Think Of A Brand Name

Brand name is really important so that people could know what name to if they want to buy your shirt again. A Brand name for your T-shirt company will also help in marketing so choose it wisely.It must be attractive and easy to speak.

Find A T-Shirt Manufacturer

T-shirt manufacturer makes t shirt and he will be the one from where you will get your give him the designs and he will make you t shirts with your designs at much cheaper rate than you normally buy t shirt from any random shop in market.Normally if a shop keeper is selling a t shirt for 20 $ then you may find the same t shirt for 6$ - 7 $ But t shirt manufacturer will never sell you one or two tee shirts .they sell t shirts in bulk as of 100 or more tee shirts you order them.Don't order anything right now just find out the unit price of tee shirt and pick up some sample shirts.

Make a Business Card

You will need a business card with your contact number and brand name on it

Visit The T_Shirt Shops in The Market (Make some Clients)

Now ,the hard part comes,You go to different t shirt shops with your designs ,sample and business card and ask them to buy tee shirts from you it may take days before you get a significant order so don't loose hope just visit every shop someone will be willing to give you the order for t shirts.make some clients and get some orders .You will need marketing skills for this

Once you get the orders of lets say 500 shirts you go to the manufacturer and give him the order pick your profit and supply it to the shops.keep your profit
This way you make permanent clients who will need lots of t shirts each month and this way you make a monthly income
It will be a bit difficult to start and make your place but once you get a few orders then you just keep on growing.I guess this is a kind of business in which there's no chance of loss

Have a nice day :)
