How to Get Accurate Price Quotation for Custom T-shirts
Save time, make sure you get what you want precisely, and your money’s worth; these are the benefits you will get after reading this piece of information. If you’re going to be in serious business, be it for selling quality clothing or in any transaction, you have to learn how to ask for price quotations. There’s a simplified process of how to do it, and we will be teaching you just how.
Step 1. Figure out, decide what you want the end product to look like
You have to know what you want. Because just like in personal life, you are the master in your own business. No one should be making decisions for you. Your suppliers do not have the psychic ability to tell what you want before you even consider it. Producing bespoke products is not like ordering in Amazon. Make a decision.
Step 2. Write down the technical specifications
Write your demands down and be very specific. The more specific you are, the better. It will make sure that your bill is for what you want, and this will save you and your supplier time. It’s a win for both parties.
Step 3. Ensure you have the following details on your list
- Size chart. Making your own is better. If you can’t provide one, ask your supplier for size chart options. There is plenty of size variety.
- Total quantity. Make sure the amount of your order meets your supplier’s MOQ or Minimum Order Quantity, so you won’t risk being declined.
- Total number per size. T-shirts come in various sizes. Unless you merely want a free sized product.
- Type of material. Click this to see your material options from our team.
- Send the T-shirt design and how you want your logos applied on the product
- Sewing instructions
- Target budget. It is essential to let your supplier know your target budget. Your supplier may either tell you if your budget matches your specifications or offer alternative options to save money. Either way, both of you will save time.
- Target completion time. Typically, the customer does not have control here. There’s a process to follow when it comes to shirt production. But let the supplier know so that they may tell you if they can do it or not. If they cannot meet your time, you can move on to other companies who can.
- Send all other details you deem necessary, including when you want them to update you about the project.
Step 4. E-mail a Request for Quotation / RFQ
Always keep it in writing. By the time your supplier responds with a quotation, that electronic mail trail ensures security on both ends. Having details clear and written promotes honesty and ethical business relationship.
Step 5. Send RFQ to as many suppliers as you can and then compare rates
If you want to get the best deal, ask a price quotation from several businesses. Try e-mailing at the same time to save time. Shooting e-mail one at a time is a waste of time.
Step 6. Making sure the Price Quotation received is according to your standards
A Company is what you call a group of human beings working together to make a profit who all are subject to error. Trust but verify. Double-check, triple-check, ask questions. It is your responsibility as a business person to ensure everything is on point.
Step 7. Ask for a Discount. Haggle.
Even if your supplier already gave you a proposal, always ask for a discount or any other perks. It does not hurt to ask if you get to save or earn anything. That’s a good thing for you.
