Thinking about giving away t-shirts as promo items? Know anyone who can do it as a reasonable price?

295 guys loads up fine for me.


There are several website out there that have price ranges from $1.75-$2.95 per shirt.

Many require at least 100 shirt order. Some require 1000 min order. The $2.95 is NOT the cheapest just start surfing the internet and you will find a ton.

http://www.globalpromosonline.com/index.html does my printing for $2 to $2.50 based on volume. I buy the shirts at http://www.shirtchamp.com for as little as $1.50 each.

Michael, do you first buy shirts then send it to the printing company?

So you Buy the shirt, shipping etc.. Then have it sent to another company have it made and shipped again to you?

The company I listed above does the entire thing full color on both side for just $2.95. If you wanna go the route of buying them first I also gave a site selling shirts for just $1 each.

Yes, I buy the shirts in bulk first and then drop off a smaller quantity for printing. Global promos also sells shirts but at about $1 more. I don't think the owner, Norm, would object to you shipping straight from your shirt supplier to him. He just needs you to email him your logo or tell him what you need printed on it. He'll create a proof and send it to you for approval before printing. When he does the work of creating the image/text to go on the shirt, he charges a one time set-up fee...I don't recall the price for that part of it.

I know that there are shirts out there cheaper than what I pay, but I don't like to order a huge amount of shirts to get those lower prices. Plus, I'm also picky about the weight of the shirt. I know that another way to get your shirt price down is to buy a lighter weight material. I prefer a medium weight to strike a balance between cost and quality.

I give a free t-shirt to the birthday kid so I'm not putting top dollar into the best available quality....I aim for the same quality that is used as a promo gift when you donate blood, or register for races like an 8k or 10k.
