I shall tell a bit more about the collab between my sister Cilla and I! Come a bit closer please and make yourself comfortable...not THAT comfortable. Sheesh, how are you going to read if your face is pressed against the screen :|...
But okay, let's start. I mentioned a few posts back that my sister is a Fashion Lady and a Beauty Guru. She has her own Youtube channel where she chats about all things beauty related. If you love Beauty & Fashion and random silliness...please subscribe to her ^_^
So as she is into Fashion & Beauty ( I do love it as well, but on a different level than her I think) and I am into illustration, it made perfect sense to do a little collab! My sister loves to cut and pimp her shirts and I love off-shoulder shirts/sweaters, but very often the designs in the store aren't fun enough for me. So what better way to create our own?
But okay, we got our paint and various of art material ready. The only element that was a bit tricky were the shirts. We want a small stock, around 20-30 shirts as it's just a side project, so we don't want to have like 100 of shirts. Several shirts will be for ourselves and we will put a few up for sale. It depends on the demand if there will be a second shirt project, but first things first! We have to survive this one hehe. So first I searched here and there on the web, but a lot of manufacturers sell from 100 shirts or more. Which make perfect sense from their point of view and for larger companies, but I am not a store (yet) so this is a no go for me. After a bit more searching, I thought I'd found a company where I could buy a small stock of shirts. After a bit of e-mailing the salesperson said that the shipping would be $120. This is a tad too expensive, considering the shirts would only be $108. Paying more for shipping than actual item is not smart. I did found a company in Holland, called Creativ Company, that sold 100% cotton white shirts for a fair price, but I still wasn't sure, so I turned to my friend Dean for some advice. After chatting with him and the fact I want a small stock, going for the company in Holland was the best deal for me. So I did that. Big Thanks again Dean!
Now I shall leave you and stare at some cupcakes hehe. Enjoy your week everyone! And before I go...my latest column is about...Secrets ^_^.
