Prices for Organic Tees? American Apparel wholesale or someplace else?

Postby lestat777 » Mon Jun 06, 2016 2:48 pm


I am very new to the world of screen printing. I am still in the process of gathering prices and data and before taking the next step of ordering the equipment I am trying to find the best place to get my blank shirts. I have not filed for tax info yet so I can't register for a wholesale account at places like American Apparel yet.

I am focusing on ORGANIC shirts that are MADE IN THE USA. I was wondering if anyone here has a wholesale account with American Apparel and can tell me what their wholesale prices are for their organic shirts? I'm mainly interested in 2001ORG, but any info for other organic apparel is also appreciated.

I found the 2001ORG AA shirts through Alphabroder for as low as $7.10 (if paying with cash, credit card is a little more which I find odd, but...whatever), so I can only assume that getting the shirts directly through AA would be cheaper.

Or if anyone know of another distributor that has organic USA shirts for a better price I'm all ears! I've been gathering estimates from shops here and there and some have quoted as low as $8.95/shirt for one color printing on these kinds of shirts. I can't imagine how they make much of a profit if they're getting their shirts for roughly $7 each (not to mention shipping) with only a $2 mark up (even with modest set up fees).

Thanks for any help and advice you can give! I will probably be posting on here often as I get my business going :)
