Looking for a business plan for a t-shirt company? T-shirts are practically the American wardrobe, crossing lines of age, gender, and ethnicity. A t-shirt company might design t-shirts to be manufactured elsewhere, or it might purchase t-shirts and then silk-screen them with the company's designs. Comfort, organic cotton, and being made in America are all selling points for t-shirts. Companies like Threadless accept user designs, then let community members vote on their favorites, which are made and sold. The company has become extremely popular, even partnering with Gap recently. It's pretty wise to combine user-generated content, crowdsourcing, and a voting element to get your user base engaged, interested, and willing to buy.
A business plan for a t-shirt company will likely follow this format:
• Executive summary
• Description of your products (t-shirts) and/or services (printing, design, etc.)
• Analysis of the apparel industry and the size of your target market (whether local or online)
• A look at competing t-shirt companies and how your business will outperform them, whether by price, quality, or certain features
• Management summary with highlights of your experience in the apparel industry as well as any relevant education or certifications you hold, and bios of other members on your management team
• A financial forecast for your t-shirt company's first few years
