    Default Business plan

    Just curious if anyone has ever put together a business plan for their screenprinting business. I'm looking for some info on how I might set one up pertaining to screenprinting ( shirts).

    Public art is very important and often overlooked in the hustle and bustle of modern life.

    heres some hints:

    1. DO NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES hire anyone who is 'cool'.

    Immigrants, rednecks, bored middle-aged housewives make the best employees. they are motivated.


    2. Make sure to factor in ALL costs...ekectricity, insurance, phones EVERYTHING...then divide it by how many hours a week you will be open.

    say it all comes to 100.00 an hour total costs(including your own salary)...you need to be able to print 200 dollars an hour for it to be worthwhile.

    3. develop GOOD CONTACTS with textile wholesalers. Nothing will kill you faster than not being able to get shirts.

    4. Hidden screen charges. Thats where the money is.

    The majority of the profit made by a t-shirt shop is not generated by the printing. Sometime you will lose money on the printing.

    Profit is made on the garment markup. Realize that you are a wholesaler of garments first and a printer second.
