There are a few things to remember when considering a t-shirt design and the potential costs involved.
- Quantity - As with most things in our industry, the more you buy, the lower the cost per unit.
- Quality - 50/50 t-shirts are a blend of cotton and polyester. These shirts will shrink less and have a lower cost per unit. 100% Organic Cotton may give you that feel you are looking for, but will more than likely shrink after the first wash.
- Imprints - Each time you add an imprint location, a new screen has to be created and the shirt has to be run through the machine an additional time, increasing cost.
- Colors - Not only does the number of colors you use on the shirt increase cost, but the color of the shirt itself can result in a cost difference as well. Light colors on dark shirts result in the use of more ink.
