Tshirt business growth rate

The demand for a Tshirt in the market is always increasing because people of the present generation don’t like to wear a shirt.

you also have seen almost every college student like to wear a Tshirt because of less maintenance.

How to start a Tshirt printing business:

  •  For starting Tshirt business sole proprietorship is the best option. you should contact any CA firm for this all kind of paperwork.
  • you may contact any firm for registration business incorporation. I suggest Indiafilling to my clients. They do all work online.
  • It will take up to 10-20 days for all paperwork.

    #NOTE: if you do this from then they will provide everything like pan card, TAN, GST, etc and accounting software also.

    Tshirt printing business equipment and cost estimation

    1. you can buy equipment from anywhere, I had mentioned the links to make it easy only. Before buying compare the prices.

    2. In case, if the buy link doesn’t work then just search the material name on google you will get it.

    T-shirt printing business plan



    Investment may be greater than 40,000 or less than 40,000.

    I am considering 200 pieces of custom Tshirt ( cost around 10,000 ).

    the machine I choose is semi-automatic, it’s good for starting. the fully automatic machine cost you Rs 15000 more.

    you can buy a custom Tshirt from India mart or any other online site also. You can buy it from wholesalers too.

    after that, you need to just choose any design on the computer and using the machine you can print it on a plain T-shirt.

    Both kinds of product have too much demand in the market

    How to increase sales of the product:

    Price of Tshirt in the market:

    In the market, this type of Tshirt is sold @ rate of Rs 300 to 600 you can easily sell at Rs 300.

    In wholesale, these t-shirts are sold at Rs 150 to 200.

    Competiton in Tshirt market:

    Due to too much demand in the market. this business is a little bit competitive. you have to make a proper strategy to gain the market.


    if you are able to sell at least 10 pieces per day at cost of Rs 300 as a retailer. Then your profit will be Rs 245 per piece.


    • the cost price of the t-shirt= 50
    • print price= 5
    • total cost= 55.
    • selling price 300.


    profit= selling price – cost price

    profit= 300- (55+5)

    Total profit= Rs 245

    on selling 10 pieces your profit will be Rs 2450 per day and about Rs 73,500 monthly.

    Earning per month = Rs 73,500
