Coffee & Ink: Starting Your Own Clothing Line
Good morning, friends! Let’s talk shirts.
We’ve seen a lot of customers this year already wanting to start their own clothing line. I mean let’s be real, everyone loves a good t-shirt with a unique design on it!
It’s a great business opportunity too...when done right.
It all starts with an idea. Your idea. But before you start your online store chalk full of these awesome shirts you’ve created, you need to build your foundation. This means establishing your brand, your values, and your goals for your business. This is much more than just the logo you make for your new clothing line, this is the culture you create for your target audience.
Unfortunately, the majority of aspiring entrepreneurs we see embarking on this journey give up or fail within the first three-six months. It’s not because of their work ethic or lack of hustle, it’s because they didn’t take the time to establish their brand.
Think about your favorite clothing lines. What do they do that you love and don’t like?
Mimic their success and learn from their mistakes.
There’s always more to learn, more to do, and money to be made. Over here at Levrets Ink, we’re always ready to help. Our core beliefs are to Create, Inspire, and Unite. That means creating awesome shirt designs, apparel and even graphic design elements (like branding and logos) for your new business, inspiring you to take your business to the next level with the power of custom apparel and uniting together with our community to lift one another up in success.
We got your back. You’re not in this alone.
So to recap:
Take the time to research other brands and clothing lines you admire.
Take the time to establish your brand (we can help you!)
Come up with awesome shirt ideas that you are confident your target audience wants to buy.
Keep the hustle alive and get that money
Never forget, our doors are always open (well, Monday-Friday 8-5) to help out in any way we can. Feel free to shoot us an email, give us a call, or drop by the shop and we can talk shirts.
