The Essential 5-Step Guide For Starting a Profitable T-Shirt Company With Little to No Money

With the number of resources we have available to us today, we all can make many streams of income. There are many ways to earn money online that don’t cost an arm and a leg. The people you witness earning at a high rate are not fake. Well, most of them. They put in the work to receive more income. You can do the same with such a simple idea. Start a t-shirt company.

Create a Business Model

Don't ever skip the creation of your business model.  Aside from having a business plan for t-shirt companies complete, you need to know exactly how the company will make money. You also need to know what products will bring that money in. Be very specific here.

How do you want to make money? 

How many products will you sell? 

How will you market? 

What actions you will take to earn your profit?

In the midst of creating your business model, you must decide how much money you want to earn per product. This requires research. Here are a few tips:

  • Determine the amount of money you want to make from your business.

  • Learn how much the cost for you will be for each product.

  • Add the amount of profit to the amount you'll pay. This is the new retail amount.


Do not forget to consider shipping prices. This also requires research. I've learned that buyers like amounts with free shipping attached to it. So, you can get away with high ticket products if shipping is free.

If this does not work for you, consider average priced products with low-cost shipping. You will adjust according to sales and what your buyers like. 

Choose Professional Designs

If you invest in nothing else, invest in professional designs for your business. The quality of your products represents your brand. Your products will last longer after several washes because of your investment.

Hire a professional on Fiverr to bring your idea to life. I am all about DIY, but delegating this part will save you a lot of time.

Ensure that it is clear that you will use the design for resale. Everyone needs to be in-the-know for legal reasons.

If you completely oppose Fiverr, hire a private graphic designer and use a disclosure agreement. This agreement protects your designs. It ensures they won't share with others in confidence.


Ideas for products:

Kid's products sell like crazy!

People love cultural awareness apparel.
