To start this off. Having your own T-shirt business is not as easy as it may seem. There are a lot of decisions that will need to be made that can affect the outcome of your success. It will take a lot of hard work and late nights. Don't be discouraged we will help you.
If you would like to start a t-shirt business with little to no money, you can do so by using a t-shirt fulfillment company. What a t-shirt fulfillment company will do is, print your design and ship your item directly to your customer. You can start off by selling shirts for free using a free website builder, such as Wix or Weebly to name a couple. You can start a Free facebook business page to share your designs or try to sell them to family and friends directly on Facebook. You can ask your Facebook friends to share your mockups and tag you and/or your business.
Now maybe, you are a graphic design artist and you thought about buying your own equipment. Unless you absolutely love printing yourself it is best to leave it to the professionals until you grow your sales. That money for equipment can be used for marketing to make sure that your ideas are working first. You can learn more in our article on how to start a successful T-shirt business. Also, you will need to know what t-shirt printing methods you will need.
You can open up a free Paypal account and link it to your bank account. You can even request a PayPal debit card. Paypal also has a device that you hook into the aux port on your phone that you can take credit card payments on the go. Once you finally sell a shirt you then place your order with the fulfillment company, such as us Need T-shirts Now ™ or our parent company Your Digital Creator LLC. After you place your order we will ship the shirt to you or your customers. You will want to sign up for a DTG dropship account so that an invoice is not included in the package. Or simply put in your notes, "do not include invoice".
You can purchase a white shirt for $7.99 each from Your Digital Creator. USPS first class Shipping is around $3 to $4. Your total cost will be around $11 to $12. You can retail a shirt for $25 or sell them at a lower price around $19.99 each and offer your customer free shipping and still profit around $7 to $8 a shirt without the need to purchase equipment or ever touching the shirt.
This is one of the many ways on how you can start a t-shirt business with little to no money. There are other ways that we will cover at a different time. Thanks for reading. If there is something you think we missed let us know and we will consider adding.
