Billie, I checked out the "Life is Good" tees. Their long sleeve tees sell between $32 and $36 but they are lightweight cotton with a fitted shape. They are fashion savvy and a famous brand. I would think that the price of your tees would depend on the quality of the cotton and the shape. Are they fitted or boxy? Fitted usually costs more. Is the cotton lightweight or heavy? Lightweight usually costs more . . . so you see where I'm going. Is the design fashion forward or basic? The answers to these questions should help you move your prices either up or down. Hope this helps. Also . . . you might check out Esty and find t-shirts there. See what others are charging.

awesome Deby. Thank you!

Hey, can I sketch you? If so, would you mind sending me a picture?

Nathan, I have a friend who signed up with an online talent pool, can't remember the name of it though. He was hired to travel around to various conferences sketching faces. Check out online services for illustrators. Also make sure and check this out: 45 Markets of Illustrations

ok, one more photo. This one I had to do with ballpoint pen, which doesn't bleed when wet, so I can't create a watercolor effect like the others. It's also done on regular, boring paper so there isn't the same texture as the previous drawings. 

I'd really like to make some money off this idea... anyone have suggestions on how to do this? I've even thought about fiverr.com but these cost me almost $5 in materials - thoughts?

Thanks Deby, This is my first teespring and I haven't placed an ad yet. I was wondering if you guys think it might sell for $20 with proper marketing. Teespring charges a base price by the color and how many you think you are going to sell. This has four colors and it's base price is a little high. I might pull the plug and reprice after I do another one first.

And what do you all think about this one?

Comment by nathan miller on October 13, 2014 at 8:35am

Thanks Billie! Yes, the first one is Dan, the other is Alan Jackson (of 'Jump Start' here on 48days.net). I'd love to do something like you say (especially I got a "hefty price" for it!), but for now I'd like to find a way to do these sketches in my home, at my own pace. No idea where to start something like that, or how to find a buyer. 

Comment by Billie Wells on October 13, 2014 at 8:29am

Nathan, I love them. Dan - the first one.

I remember hearing Dan say that someone he knew booked themselves at conferences or something like that as an artist drawing people there. He booked it by the hour at a hefty price and got paid well. That might be an awesome gig.

Just posted this to the Jump Start page to see if anyone had ideas on how to do pen and ink sketches like this to make some extra cash, but I wanted to share it here too. :)
I had a fun time doing these. 

(Extra points if you can guess who these are of)
