Have you always wanted to design shirts or other screen printed items, but not sure you want to take on the cost of production and marketing? The company I’m currently working for is looking to expand their screen printed line and we’re looking for new designers. If you’ve always wanted to design shirts, bags, or who knows what, now is your chance!
Here’s the lowdown: we take on the challenge and cost of producing samples, making the shirts, marketing and selling everything. In exchange for using your artwork, we’ll pay you royalties per shirt actually sold. Though we can’t guarantee anything, it’s a great opportunity to get your work out on a national stage without having any risk or cost to you. We’re a big screen-printing shop so we’re able to utilize a lot of different techniques and styles to achieve what you’re looking for. We’ll work with you on shirt choices and all of the good stuff so the end product is exactly what you’ve envisioned.
We typically only sell to wholesale accounts which means if your designs sell, they’ll be decent size orders. We’re hoping to expand into an online retail presence, but that’s at least a year out. For the time being, it will just be wholesale orders. This provides an added benefit if someone contacts you about possibly selling your designs, as you’ll have a built-in production facility at the ready.
So, what do you need to do? Just send me some designs! We’re looking for fairly cohesive collections that we can market as a whole line. I can’t guarantee that we’ll produce for everyone who submits designs, but it won’t hurt to try, and you’ll never know what will happen! I can send you shirt blanks in any format you need (.ai, .pdf, .psd) if you need them, however sending just the design itself is fine as well. If you have any questions or problems, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or to submit your designs.
I’m looking forward to seeing what this great creative community has to offer – so send some designs, and tell your friends!
