    Hello guys, I am new!

    For the last while I have been thinking of starting one particular business and I was thinking of buying bulk T-shirts just to help start the promotion of this and was wondering if it would be better to import them from overseas instead of getting them made here due to costs. What are some good sites to buy high-quality fashionable clothing in bulk. Any places in Australia that do this cheap? Would I be better off purchasing the tools to print on them or getting someone else to do it?

    Age demographic of 15-25 y/o.

    Thanks !

    Big questions

    Skate/surf brands are usually high quality but tend to be made in places like Bali.

    You need to research and get samples so that you can see what quality you will be after.

    Building this type of brand is NOT EASY and it will require lots of work.

    Do you have the skills to print on shirts yourself and could you start like the “No Fear” brand and sell at local markets – look up his story!

    I think the way Deus built its brand around the custom bikes was pretty clever…assume now that they make way more from merchandise than the actual bikes!
