Sorry for the delay, having a slight problem with technology (my computers all have different issues, hopefully fixed today). Anyway, I took a look at the website youre looking to get your products from and had a couple of comments. First, the good thing that I saw is that most of the polo`s are of higher quality like you wanted (ie: pique cotton is one of the best), as well as 6.0 oz. or better, a thicker, heavier shirt that will last longer. I didnt see alot of options or variety in their selection as far as 6.0`s, 6.1 oz. and higher. They seem to offer a bit of each but not alot. I didnt see many of other high quality materials (ring-spun cotton, brushed or combed cotton etc..) in their listings. Lastly, their pricing looked a little high. I get for less. The quantity ordering is about what I pay per piece so they appeared a bit high. A few other things for you to consider are will they give you bulk pricing per piece for your first couple of sample runs with them and are you producing your own labels? If you are producing your own labels, you must also consider how the shirts you buy are already labled. Check out this site https://www.broderbros.com/cgi-bin/broderliv/index.htm. I get some great deals from them at times and it will give you a good comparrison on alot of items. Tell them I refered you and it may make a difference. Let me know what else I can do and Ill` do my best....Chat ya later--- Richard @ BEDAWEAR
Thanks again for taking the time to send the info.
I met with the artist today and he loved my idea. I will have a working logo in about a week. I`ll keep in touch.
I`d like to chime in on this great topic. I would like to suggest that you begin your learning process of having your logo trademarked.
It`s a simplistic task, once you read through the information on the US Trademark site. I too have started a apparel company. I submitted my trademark on last December, and I am on last leg of obtaining the right to use the registered trademark symbol (R).
Make sure you jump on it as soon as possible. You`re building a legacy and nothing should get in the way. One of my manifestos is "Won`t Be Denied! Because You`re Relentless About It.
