help with pricing

Posted on Mon, 18 Oct 2004 at 0:49



I have some t-shirt ideas that I am in the process of setting up to get silk screened, so I may sell to retailers. On the assumption that my product will sell for $15.95 retail, what price can i expect to sell them wholesale for to the retailers?? Thanks

To actually sell to wholesalers, you will need to sell the shirts at $8 per shirt. Otherwise, you will not be able to sell to all wholesalers interested. Some will not purchase the shirts if they more than half the retail.

Actually I am the wholesaler. I have the t-shirt ideas and I am having a screen printer make them for me, I will then sell them to the retail stores (I live in a resort town). So I guess what I am really asking is about how much can I expect a retailer to pay per a shirt, buying in quantity?? Thanks

General Rule of thumb for retailing shirts, depends on the types of shirts your are printing. If it is mass quantity or lower quantities, it will be different.

Lower quantities: These almost always get doubled

Printer ––> Wholesaler ––> Retail

$4 ––> $8 ––>$16 (Retail)

Mass Quantity:

Printer ––> Distributor ––> Wholesaler ––> Retailer

$2.50 (example drop in price because of mass quantity) ––> $5 ––> $10 ––> $20 (Retail).

These prices will vary depending on how good of a design and in demand your shirts are. Basically, though, you should always double your cost.

Josh, Do you have a printer to print your shirts. I just started a screening business. And I am looking to grow my business. Where are you located? Shoot me an email if you get a chance.
