T shirt printing is a business that’s been around for decades and is often touted as a way to “print your own things.”
And if you’ve been keeping track of the shirts that have been on the shelves for a while, you may have noticed that the shirt printer business has seen a boom in the past year or two.
According to the US Census Bureau, the number of shirts printed annually by American companies grew from around 3,200 in 2013 to over 11,700 last year.
And according to the American Apparel Association, the shirt manufacturing industry generated $2.9 billion in revenue in 2015.
But there’s a problem: While there’s been a boom, it hasn’t always been sustainable.
Some of the companies that make shirts are in a tough spot.
They’ve lost business to more efficient methods and less cost-effective methods of printing, including self-service, online ordering, and kiosks.
And they’re also trying to compete in a market that has grown so fast in the last few years that there’s an expectation that they’ll be the only ones in the market, said Michael DeAngelis, chief executive of a company that sells shirts at the New York Fashion Fair.
He called the growth “unusual.”
What to do?
The most common approach for retailers is to get out of the shirt print business entirely.
For some companies, it’s the only way to compete with other businesses that are selling more shirts, like fashion labels and luxury brands.
But many people don’t want to get rid of their shirts completely.
And the shirts printed by some of these companies are being offered at inflated prices.
So if you’re looking for a better option, consider buying a printable shirt that’s less expensive than buying a new shirt, said Debra M. Farr, chief marketing officer of the American Made label.
FARR said she was trying to find a better deal for her customers when she bought her first one.
The company had printed more than 1 million shirts last year and was looking for ways to cut costs, Farr said.
But when she tried to buy one, she was told the price tag for a shirt with a printed collar was $100.
“I just got confused,” she said.
Farrow said that while some of her customers are happy to pay more, others have said they want a shirt that looks nicer.
“A lot of them are going to be upset by the price, but they’re not necessarily going to want to pay $100 for it,” Farrow told CBS News.
“They’ll probably want a better product.”
And that’s a good thing, Farrow says, because the cost of the quality of a shirt is important to her customers.
But even with the low prices, there’s still a chance that a customer might get a bad one.
For example, Fargas said she once got a shirt for $80 from a local department store.
The customer she was looking at was wearing a shirt made by a different company.
She said the customer sent her a photo of the problem, and when she got back to her house she found out the shirt had been returned to her.
That meant she’d lost the opportunity to buy a better shirt.
And with no more shirts to print, FARR’s customers had to start over.
But that’s not all.
There’s also a concern that a lot of the cheaper shirts are just recycled or misprinted.
And it’s also hard to find shirts with the right fit for someone who is a size 12 or 14, according to Farr.
Some companies have come up with clever ways to make shirts for customers who don’t fit into the usual sizes, but Farr says it can be difficult for people who want to order shirts with a specific cut that’s easier to fit in than others.
So Farr has also made shirts for women who are smaller than average, Fars, Farkas, and Farr say, but the shirts don’t always fit people who are larger than average.
And some people may not want to buy shirts that are so big that they’re going to look “over-sized,” Farr told CBS.
“If you have someone who’s a size 6 or 7 or 8, you’re probably not going to buy that, and they’re likely not going a size 8 or 9,” FARR explained.
And if someone who does fit into a smaller size doesn’t want one, FAras said, they can try the same shirts with larger shirts.
But for Farr and other shirt printers, there is no solution.
“We’re not trying to solve the shirt problem, because we’re not doing that,” Farges said.
And that, she said, is the problem.
If people aren’t buying shirts that look good and that work, Farge said, that’s their business.
“The business is to make money,” she added.
