Hi! I received a screen-printing kit for Christmas, was thinking about selling t-shirts on etsy. I want them to be quality shirts, so I was thinking of buying them from American Apparel. Unfortunately this would mean having them shipped to me. My question is, should I pre-order and pre-print the shirts, then put them on etsy, or should I make it more like a custom order and buy and print the shirt after my customer buys the product. The first option would clearly be easier for the customer, but the shirts are relatively expensive for an "if...". I don't know if anyone will actually buy my shirts.

I would suggest getting a business number and getting a wholesale account with them so they're cheaper.

Unique, one of a kind, handmade clothing!

I can understand the confusion since you'd also have to worry about sizes too..and color or shirts..wow..I know that printing as you go may cost more money for you as far as set up and paint-you'd have to set up and use paint just to print once..it may be easier to make a few in each size but have a variety of designs..

good luck and let us know what you choose to do..
