My husband, brother-in-law and I are are venturing into our own tshirt business.  We are planning to be web-based but will be doing festival/fair type things as well. 

Our very first festival is the Fiesta Filipina in San Francisco in June.  We will have 13 different shirts (Mens and Womens) total in sizes S-XL.  All shirts priced at $20 each.

I would love some advice regarding a few things...
1) How in the world can we manage the large number of product we'll have in our little 10x10 booth?
2) Any ideas on how to display the great graphics on the shirts w/o hanging 13 different shirts up on the front of the booth?
3) For packaging, do we need bags?

That's it for now!  Thank you in advance for the help!  I'm going to go read through allll of the posts in this topic now.  Heehee!

If you were willing to sacrifice one T-shirt of each design, I'd suggest mounting the shirts on 1'x1' boards so that the design shows through, and then propping each board up on one of those little frame stands. Then you can just line your table with them. Alternatively you could build some sort of display board.

Or you could get two flag stands (about 6' high with a big steel base) and string a clothesline between them to hang your shirts on in the background of your booth.

Hope that gives you some ideas...

I really also like the clothesline idea.  I would definetly not try to have all the merch outside of your table--if your booth is busy, a ton of your merch could walk.  Maybe you could wear the designs as you're working the booth, that way people know how the shirts look on someone as well?

Sorry I'm not more help!

It's late, and I've been wondering...  How I can stay awake so long and miss so much...

Yeah, I'd just keep one of each size/each style on the table both for security and for removing clutter--when a person decides they want a small shirt of design X, then you can get it out of a storage bin under your table.
