There are also customization businesses, there are new businesses all the time and people love to have their name on the items their business is branding, so having a name on t-shirts will always be popular, the most important thing is what type of t-shirts you want to sell niche your market, your target customer, you know, do you only want to sell boys shirts, girls shirts, men's shirts, women's shirts, children's shirts, adult shirts, do you want to sell only hats, do you want to sell baby clothes, wants to make custom baby clothes um custom baby clothes that's what I do uh let's look at aprons just company logos like what do you want to sell what kind of shirts or you know what clothes you want to sell okay and after you figure it out , you will have to think about your budget.

How are you going to finance all this you have in mind? How are you going to finance it? Are you going to get a bank loan? You already have cash aside. You have no money at all. Do you have a family that? I'll pay 50 50 with you in a partner type situation or you have credit that you're working with so you have to think about all those options so when it comes to liking the t-shirt business there is the cheapest option to start with. a t-shirt business that would be a print-on-demand business, which means it doesn't really cost much, so with this you pretty much just design a t-shirt, you design a design, I don't know if that makes sense.

If you design a design, you upload it to Printful and people buy it and they send it to you. You have no inventory, nothing, your hands are empty. Now my problem with that which I personally don't like is the control, uh, quality control because I like to know what I have, my name appears, I need to know it, but a lot of people do that to make money, so that's the cheapest option, That brings me to my next point: you need to know what type of business you want t-shirt business there are many different types of t-shirt businesses i.e. how they put things on their shirts, so there is print on demand, there is sublimation, There is heat transfer vinyl, there is screen printing transfers, heat transfers, there is screen printing, there is embroidery and there is direct to garment, which is dtg.
I hope I didn't miss anything and although I mentioned that, I just want to say, todd, who is my sales rep for a dtg printer. I would recommend the f-2100 so you can buy it at Todd along with the sublimation printers and inverter machines. I'll put your information below. His name is Todd Edgeman and he can help you with anything. Answer any question. There's no pressure for anything if you just have a question you want answered. Todd Will. I'll be more than happy to answer that for you, so I'll put his information below. Mention Angela from YouTube.
You watched the video and just had a few questions. No pressure, so let's get back to the video. For those types of questions. With shirt companies, the cheapest thing is demand printing, as I mentioned, and then I would say the next thing to come would be heat transfer vinyl, which is like a cricut or a silhouette, a vinyl cutter, and then sublimation and the rest, simply. They might not be expensive or they might not be as expensive, but they are definitely more expensive than heat transfer vinyl and print on demand, and that would be in british embroidery, screen printing and dtg direct to garment, so from there .
That's when you really have to do your research in terms of what type of business you want to have because there are different supplies that you need for each business, one of the most important supplies that you need for almost every t-shirt business would be a heat press. um and you can get one on Amazon um or you can go high end and get like a stall. I have posts, it just depends on you knowing your budget, like I said get a new budget and it's totally fine to start with a cheaper heat press, cheaper supplies at the beginning and it will save you money to buy more supplies and I mean that literally at the beginning of your t-shirt business, all the money you earn will go into your business to make it bigger. get more inventory to get more equipment to get more supplies, so you have to really think about that too.
I'm just mentioning that right now you're not going to be a millionaire overnight, I mean, you might get lucky, you know, but you know. You have to think about all these things. You have to think about the supplies you need and, from the beginning, the greatest supply. Tshirts. You need to know what type of t-shirts you are going to sell, what type of quality t-shirt. shirts you want to sell um there's a t-shirt guild that we all know gildan um they sell them at michaels joann's so these are shirts like these these are the bella bella plus canvas shirts um these are very popular right now for the women's market um I love them these shirts are super comfortable the gold ones for me are thick and just not that soft so there's the bella canvas um there are so many different blank options and what shirts you have to think about the quality you want to sell um it's just getting started, I started with gildan um because it's easily available is that Joann's Michaels you can get them everywhere um I'll mention two websites where you can get them um get both t-shirts and find one A group of t-shirt suppliers would be alphagrota.com and jiffyshirts.com.
I'll try to link them below and they have a huge amount of t-shirts, they have almost every t-shirt brand on there so you know? Go see them, just check them out. There are also stores like Hobby Lobby where you can go to buy t-shirts at first. I started at Walmart. You know, it just depends on the price, but when you buy in bulk. the price is a little cheaper than going to Walmart and buying the t-shirts but again that's just part of it and you have to have a business plan so that's my next point you need a plan you need a plan you need Write what. what are your goals, how are you going to get there, the price, that's the next point, just do your research, you really need to do your research and have everything written down so you can cross it off, cross it off the list of everything you have.
You've already done what you need to have done, your goals, your future, you know, just a complete business plan so you can stick to it. So when it comes to pricing, I have a whole video on how to price my items on my etsy. buy, I'll link it right here or you can go to my YouTube channel and just type in the price or items with prices and the video should appear. The most important thing I can say when it comes to pricing is please make sure you charge for Your time, you know, I started the flea market and I was charging five dollars for the t-shirt just to put the words on it and people would come to me with many t-shirts and I thought that this is not worth it.
It takes time to do it, okay? You can't just think that the shirt costs this, the materials cost this, that's it, no, there's you, you, you, you're a cost too and you need to charge for your time now. , I'm not saying what to do. about 50 an hour because you're just starting out, you need to build a clientele build build um build a brand um but pay yourself pay yourself because working in a business owning your own business you're going to spend as much time as as much time until you can. start hiring people. You are going to spend a lot of time doing it and the more time you put into it, the more your business will grow and the more benefits you will get from all the time and hard work you put into your business. uh so let's talk a little bit about what kind of supplies you would need, you know, maybe let's say let's go to the heat transfer vinyl option because it's a very popular option right now because you can get a qriket on Amazon. get supplies on amazon everyone loves amazon so you can get a cricut, a vinyl cutter, there are also silhouette cameo cutters, those are two

home

cutters that a lot of people use to start their business.
I also have a qriket to explore the air, and honestly, Yo, that's all you need, you don't need much else, especially when you're just starting out, but there's that heat press that you need, the shirts, that's pretty much it the basics of what you need. Also remember that you need a space to place all this equipment. So where are you going to put it? Most people I started in a small room and then ended up in my living room in my kitchen, so just find a place, you need a dedicated space where you can have all your business stuff that you don't have.
I want it in every world in the house because you know that's not productive. You're going to waste time trying to find this, trying to find that, put everything away and try to stay as organized as possible in the space you have. I understand that you know it. You may not have much space, just try to make it work for now until you can save enough money to maybe get a bigger place. Maybe you'll make enough money. We can get a warehouse or just a small office space or just upgrade. your apartment or spare bedroom house moving into your garage there are many different options here, but like I said, have a written business plan, know what you want to do, the steps you are going to take and how you are going to do it.
Do it, marketing plan, think about all that and you also have to think about where you are going to sell these items, how you are going to get them to market, so are you going to sell them only

online

in

2020

, yes,

online

, that's pretty much it. How is everything going now? Are you going to sell them on Shopify? Are you going, dad, etsy? What's that? Squarespace Wix. Are you going to pretend you're creating your own website? Are you going to use another platform? Amazon eBay Amazon handmade, like where are you going to sell them, you have to think about that and when you think about that, you have to think about the fees that each platform has.
I will say that right now Shopify makes up about three percent of every order because they have to charge the credit card. processing and paypal also charges a processing fee so it's about three percent yes there is a subscription, a monthly subscription, I pay for my Shopify store, I speak very fast, sorry guys, if necessary you could just slow down the videos, um, yeah, um, so. Yes, so there is a monthly subscription for Shopify stores. Are you going to sell on Facebook? The Facebook market is big right now with everything. So there's Facebook and then there's marketing ads.
Are you going to publish ads on Google Ads? Are you going to publish? Facebook ads um how are you going to spread your words? Another thing you know is whether you are only going to sell on Facebook or locally and not do anything online. Okay, if you're doing business, are you going to go out and meet people, how are you going to get clients? You really have to think about everything because you don't want to miss anything and you want to make sure you think about everything before you go and spend all the money it cost to start this. business also with your business, will you get a business license?
Are you going to do it on your own social network? How are you going to do that? You have to think about everything I'm trying to think about more. Stuff as I'm talking, that's pretty much all I have right now. If you have any questions, you can leave them below, since you know that I am a pretty calm person. I will answer your questions, as long as I know the answer. If I don't, I'll say let me get back to you when I find an answer to that question. So yeah, I hope this helps you a little bit and makes you think about different things.
I know I talk pretty fast. um but if I don't it's because I forget things, okay, so I have to speak quickly so I don't forget what I was going to say and yes, I have things written right in front of me, um, but they're just little notes. here or there um so yeah like I always say it's possible anything is possible you don't know what decision you can make to change your life which means the next decision you can make can change your whole life drastically so no one can do what you do it the way you do it so don't worry about things the markets are saturated you are not saturated there is only one so you can begood at digitizing, you may be good at drawing graphic design, you may be great at marketing, um, you just might have a crazy mind for business, so don't listen to anyone when they tell you not to do it, just do what you want, like I tell you all the time, if you need a little motivation, I have a video of dear entrepreneurs that you can watch.
