raminthethicket has the right idea, backlinks are hugely important in trying to conquer Google.

I hope you are still in business anyway  Smiley

Hi surrealsignal

What sugarshox said is generally correct, be efficient with your packaging, width, height and length all matter if you are trying to post for as cheap as possible.

I would say if your products have a general size go onto Ebay and get a bulk deal on say 50 or 100 small bubblemailers or boxes, there are LOADS of suppliers on Ebay for packaging.

USPS is just a standard mailing service so you wont get a break from them, doesn't matter how much you ship, they charge per package.

It is possible to get a good deal from a proper courier, but it would probably only be in your interests if you were shipping tons of goods every day, I assume you are in the beginning phases of business so you have a while to go yet for this to apply to you.

But don't worry about all that start slow & choose a good price for your products, if you incorporate packaging in your pricing then you can ship for free also.

It took a quite a bit of time but I didn't have to glue the rhinestones to the t-shirt, I used hotfix rhinestones.

They already have glue on the back which just needs heat to melt it, used an iron.

As you all know it was recently 1 year on that Michael Jackson passed away.

Last year when he passed I was genuinely too upset to make a t-shirt like a lot of people were doing so I thought I'd do a commemorative t-shirt on the 1 year anniversary after his passing.

I saw alot of different MJ tees on the net but few of him as a child so I found a pic a few of you might be familiar with and copied it in a combination of Black, Grey and Silver rhinestones.
