Need merch/band shirt help

Discussion in 'Band Management [BG]' started by Nephilymbass, Jun 13, 2018.


  1. So we’re just about out of merch again. The prices to have merch made been creeping up and my band is now looking for a different companies to make merch, band T shirts in particular. We don’t want to raise our prices but our profits off shirts have been getting smaller and smaller. What are you guys using these days? Can you give me some examples of cost by the hundred?

    I've had good experiences with ooshirts.com, myself. I generally order 'dozens' at a time, not 'hundreds'.

  3. Appreciate it. Yeah we generally order a hundred at a time. Not like hundreds. But a lot of the quotes we’ve been getting lately are like 100 shirts for $800. Which doesn’t leave much room for profit if we sell the shirts for $10.
     
  4. spreadshirt.com. Their hats are particularly good.

    It's not a lot of profit, but you covering you costs and getting your name out there. You could raise to $12. I don't think many would balk at $12 if they were willing to pay $10.
    To answer your question though, maybe look around locally. I've found local shops will often give some great deals if you are ordering in the quantities you are talking about. Best of luck
