How The World Ends T-Shirt Problem
I am looking to make my Pacman print into a tee, it’s had a great reception at shows and I’ve had lots of requests for it on a t-shirt.
Not being in the US, American Apparel is seen as a luxury but it also has that hip brand so would possibly help to sell the tee, even though the quality of the tee isn’t that noticeable.
I checked out the costs of getting the tee made and based on getting 100 made it would be £7 more per shirt if it was printed on American Apparel as opposed to Gildan softstyle.
Now this cost would obviously have transfer onto the customer so I would be very interested to know if people are that bothered about American Apparel. Would people be more inclined to buy a designed tee if it was printed on American Apparel? Also, what kind of price bracket would we be talking? Realistically I would need to charge over £20 ($30) per shirt for it to be worth it. Whereas with Gildan I could keep the cost at a more reasonable £15 ($20) which seems to be a magic number for the price of tees.
Thanks for your time
