T-Shirt Business Profit Margin Calculator

If you’re selling t-shirts, you probably already know how to figure out your profit margins. It’s the simplest thing you can calculate, you just subtract the cost of the shirts from the selling price. Boom, there’s your profit.

But wait! There’s more.

Did you ever think about factoring in things like returns, credit card fees or packaging costs? I hope you didn’t just hear a wah-wah-wah-wahhhhh trumpet sound.

Hey, is that vegan t-shirt… vegan?

Hey, is that vegan t-shirt… vegan?

Is that a weird question? I mean, after all, it says, “vegan” on it. Of course it’s vegan. It’s right there in the phrase. Yup, I get it. Except I’m not talking about the message printed on the shirt. I’m asking what’s behind the printing of that shirt. Is it vegan? Before we get into some answers, let’s… Continue Reading
