Step 4: Go For Quantity
There are a couple of things that come in play here. Firstly, you have setup charges (screens) and you have art charges. So, the more tees you get, the more those set-up fees will be diluted. you may say, “um…John, i’m looking to save money, not pay more…so would would i buy more tees?” Remember, i said this is the very best method if you need a LOT of tees for the cheapest price. The good news here is that most screen printers (including me) have price breaks based upon quantity. So, as an example, if you think you would be selling/giving away 110 thirts, go ahead and get 144. Most price breaks happen at 36, then 72, then 144, then 288, and so on. if you put pencil to paper you will not be paying much more for 144 pieces than 110 because of the price breaks.
