bulk t shirts

Postby martinmckenna » Mon Oct 27, 2008 9:59 pm

Am doing some research into buying organic t shirts in bulk .

if we get in position that we want to buy a lot of t shirts . then it may be a good idea to buy samples from each suppler

prices i assume are vat free .

saf t shirts seems to be the best .

S->XXL box £3.65 packs of 10 £4.05 single £4.45

http://www.tradetag.co.uk/T-Shirts/Organic+Mens+T-shirt

Europeanwear

Sample £4.35, Pack £3.56, Case £3.42

pack is 10 and a case is 80

also for that non organic "ping"

these are a lot more expensive than buying from sainsburys , but they do come unbranded .


basically we should be thinking about the festival next year and the following xmas .

not that i know of , but i think its a good thing to see how much we would need to do a project . i dont think we need/want to do big runs of images .

the budget needs to be sorted out .

how do we get budget sorted? do we need to go another group meeting or is it an fwg thing?

do we need to have another screen printing meeting maybe? could be a good time to see what we have done/ what to do next/ what we have learnt technique wise.....maybe next thursday evening the 6th nov 7pm? any thoughts...?

On t-shirts: I haven't looked closely at your choices, but I think you should make sure there is some sort of fair labour standard involved as well. Sorry to add another complication... I think Neil did the last batch of t-shirt ordering. He may have some advice. I could probably dig something up if needed.

I don't think it necessarily needs a logo, as long as it looks like they've got an alright labour policy. Traidcraft is good.

but saftag have a more in detailed page about there policy. so i trust them a bit more, and cant find if the other one is . so lets assume they are not .

traidcraft is 4.75 if you buy 10 p&P 7.50 on order under £250

tradetag is 4.05 (which is the saf t shirts)p&P £6.95 + VAT.

all prices excluding vat .

you would have to buy 10 of each size tyo get these prices. or alternatively buy smaller quantity's and pay a bit more .

things to think about when buying is size . i guess medium is going to be the best seller . but will have to have other sizes . also womens t shirts . too . that could be a lot of stock .
