My first business hoodie.

Recommended Posts

Walmart had these hoodies on sale for $7. I bought 3 of these light red ones, wish they had a darker red. Only other colors they had were a lime green, orange, and yellow.

Front side and sleeve.

Nice hoodies, I have been buying them all winter when I can find them.  Have bought over 100.  Only have about 25 left.  I did well on those hoodies this year!  So much so I also had to order some cause I couldn't get all the colors I needed at the local walmarts.  Hoodies were good this year! 

 

Looks Great!  (I didn't even make myself one.....hmmm)

Yeah E L. I pressed it..and then i held it up to admire my good work and read it..and i was like wtf!? How did i miss the "r"...??

At least this time everything was weeded...lol.

Im getting better...

I have a copyright question.. i live in Alexandria, Minnesota and tons of stores, Walmart, Target, and Cowing Robard sport store, all have shirts and hoodies that just say "ALEXANDRIA" with the text arced....

What if i copied it, but in a different font...? I mean who owns the copyright to just "ALEXANDRIA"..:huh:

And they must sell cuz i see them everywhere.

I purchased over 100 just from walmart.  They were a great price I felt at 10 bucks.  I bought well over a 100 total as I had to get colors walmart didn't carry.  The walmart ones were the top choice here because they had the additional "phone pocket" inside the regular pocket.  that was the major selling point for me here.  People loved that.

 

Along with all the single ones I sold, (mostly to family members of kids that played sports) I got lucky and got an order from one of my regular customers for 60.  I made one with his logo and wore it up to his place. (great sales pitch eh?)  The employees flipped out and liked it so much they talked him into buying some. (all for resale, he even made the employees buy their own.)

It's all good, he is a great guy and customer.  I started out doing coroplast signs for him.  That turned into billboards, shirts, hoodies, coffee mugs, hats and now he has ordered swimsuits and bikinis.  I am still on the hunt for bikinis and swim shorts.... not that season yet.  I have also done some phone cases and window decals.  For each "new item" I just toss him a freebie.... He usually loves it then orders!  I haven't tried it with any other places in town.... he has been keeping me pretty busy!  I got lucky with this customer.  I also deliver everything for him!  (1 whole mile from my place to his!)

I was looking yesterday and didn't see any here.  I was planning on just buying some from walmart as I know he doesn't want to spend a lot on them at the moment.  He wants a few cheapies with his logo on them and see if they will sell.  If so, he may want nicer suits in the future.  I am not thinking this will be a good item for him so I am thinking this is a one and done item.

 

HOWEVER, Let me clear the air (I know what some of you might be thinking at this point) .... I did not, I repeat... did NOT make up a bikini with his logo and wear it in for them..... that is not how I got that sale.... it was all him!   :angel:
