Just a general announcement fo y’all. I can now source American Apparel shirts & garments wholesale. They’re a bit more pricey than the Gildan shirts at £5 a pop for the Fine Jersey tees (shirt price only) but for that price you’re getting a genuine made in the USA/Sweatshop Free t-shirt of the highest quality.
Prices printed start at £6.55 for a 1-colour print.
Hello and happy new year to everyone! Repeat visitors to the site will notice a number of fairly major changes, not least the site design. This is my attempt to get the house in order over the next year and clarify certain aspects which I have blatantly just been winging over the last 12 months or so. I’ll go over the changes below and detail how they do or don’t affect the services you may have received in the past.
- The prices page has seen a major overhaul. Now printing costs are listed separately to the cost of the garments themselves. The main reason behind this is that since the beginning the range of garments available for me to print has expanded considerably. And for each new brand, style and format I have to figure out how much money I should be making. This makes life a lot easier for me. Pricing hasn’t gone up, but there are now price breaks starting at a minimum of 10 items printed. And price breaks are applied evenly across the full range of colour options.There are a couple of prince increases I am having to introduce however. None too onerous.
One: I am now having to introduce a small surcharge on Paypal payments. This is because Paypal’s fees are a killer and it really adds up over time.
Two: there is now a charge for custom ink colour mixes. Simply put this takes time and resources. Stock colours can just be ordered by the bucketload but it’s very hard to calculate how much of a custom mix I might require. And sometime I’ve ended up with leftovers sitting on a shelf for months with virtually no use I can put them to.
Three: Standard shipping is going up to £13. This is unavoidable, my courier costs have gone up at least twice over the last 8 months. And as my stock orders grow I’m often left with no small boxes to ship out individual orders and after packaging I usually make a loss on shipping costs.
- The garments page. Marvel at the stupid number of different shirts, vests, hoodies, sweatshirts and STUFF I can now show you! This includes all the prices for each item.
- Terms & Conditions. This is mainly just a pageload of awful legalese that you’ll find all over t’internet. But one thing you find in business is there’s always someone willing to exploit the soft-hearted. So be smart, and make sure you’re up to date with the awful legalese.
- If you look under the services link you’ll find some pages detailing the different ink technologies I use as circumstances demand. And also the different stock colours which are used for prints.
New visitors to the site might be a bit bemused by the lack of recent updates but I assure everyone that this is purely due to me being a lazy bugger. I have a phone that posts stuff direct to Twitter/Facebook so that’s pretty much all I ever bother updating. That said, here’s a ton of stuff:
Some fairly disgusting (:-p) double-sided oversize prints for death metal crew Living With Disfigurement.
