Back to School=Back to T-Shirt Business

Kids have returned back to school and that means back to school business for your t-shirt shop.   Some schools have returned completely, some hybrid and some virtual but the importance of uniting school groups with custom printed t-shirts has never been more important.

School Spirit Wear

The biggest school business is school spirit wear.    The advantage with this niche, as that you can sell more to the same customers     Print t-shirts polo shirts, hoodies, bags, rally towels and fashion wear.    It is not uncommon for one customer to buy more than one item.   This is where gang sheets really help to grow your profits.  Fill up the sheet with different logos for the same school.   Use a color change so you can print apparel in both school colors    For example. if your school is purple and black.   Order purple/white prints for your black shirts and black/white for your purple shirts.   This year add a few mask logos to the sheet to add one more item to your choices.

School Spirit Wear Tips

  • Fill the Gang Sheet
  • Order Color changes so you can print on shirts in both school colors
  • Offer a wide selection of different apparel choices
  • Order 2 color prints to increase sales
  • Don’t forget printed masks

School Clubs

An often missed back to school business is school clubs and organizations.    Each group orders shirts and there is often not the same competition for their business.    Find out the advisor for the group to contact with ideas and pricing    These advisors are teachers too, so make it easy for them to collect payment and orders.  Using an e-commerce platform like Spirit Sale makes this seamless.
