Hey folks,
I finally have my t-shirts done for my "nanobrewery"...which is a work in progress. They can be seen here.http://www.facebook.com/media/set/fb...02323289804018
I am having a tasting party this weekend and am planning on selling the shirts. So my question is...what would you spend on this shirt? I did some searching and most established brewery t-shirts go for 18-25 dollars. I was hoping to sell them for 18-20 dollars. What do you think? I know I can always get some honest opinions from HBT! Thanks!Al

I say $15. The big one's can charge more b/c they are more well known, since you are an upstart I would charge a little less so more people buy them and subsequently get the word out better

well how much did you pay for them? you should definitely want to make some money on them but if they are too expensive and your beer doesn't get people to open up their wallets, they may not sell.

I paid right around 10 bucks a shirt. All the people at the tasting party are my friends and family so they want to support me. They are getting 5 different beers on tap for free.....that is why I don't think asking a little more for the shirts is out of line.

$18 is a 45% margin. $20 is a 50% margin. That's not outrageous. I'm assuming you want to make a profit on them because if it was just about getting your name out, you would be giving them away for free and eating the cost.

I like the design (reminds me of the Sierra Nevada style) but here's a couple of things I'd prefer...(keep in mind they're just my opinions and I'm not a pro t-shirt maker or anything).

1. The font on the front is too hard to read. I think it would look better as a black t-shirt or something dark green/blue.

2. The placement on the front doesn't look right. I think it should either be larger, or smaller and placed over the left side of the chest. Going across the chest it just looks too close to the neck...could just be the picture or something though.

Just some of my own opinions, but congrats on the shirts!

I really hope that's a wheat or rye beer man! Otherwise, send me your address and I'll kick you down some gelatin.

Otherwise, fine work there. I'd buy one if I liked your beer.
