I love this, been thinking of doing this myself. I would like to hear about the process in general. How to get from A to C and what's involved in getting through "B"

Hey Cam I normally don't comment on anything. But your channel grew on me. I have a question. What is the best way to perfect printing New Times Roman. Two color? And I ask because of the sharp edges and losing them during the run and also I'm not sure if you covered this. You post like a mad man, props. Thx

Can you tell us about marketing and sourcing designs?
Sami Pitts (10 months ago)
Love watching your videos. I'm a photograper turned graphic designer and just started my apparel business 9 months ago. It hasn't been easy but like you said, brand awareness and marketing is key but super hard to get people to buy stuff unless there is an emotional connection to whatever it is you're selling.

The Print Life I have a question for you as well. When you decided to start with the Streetwear business what made you choose Printful? I use Printify and the printers they use have been hit and miss. So I'm wondering if Printful was chosen based on something you noticed about them. My long term goal is also flat bill caps and other accessories which I believe they can do some of those things as well. Any input on here or offline would be greatly appreciated. TIA
The Print Life (10 months ago)
Exactly. I hope we can create that connection with people.

I'm currently studying art & design at A Level, my course includes fashion elements and after I've finished my course I would love to initiate a clothing line..

I love this bro! I wish you nothing but success. I'm going through the same process as you. Just looked at your site. I want to give my 2 Cents. The "Mock Up" TEE of your latest shirt has the GILDAN tag on there. I immediately got turned off. Just because there are waaaay better quality blanks than GILDAN. Maybe at least just blur out the tag like all the other ones you posted on the site. That's just my 2 Cents and my opinion really doesn't matter. Love the direction though. Cheering for you. YEE!

Hey Cam I got a question. Would you recommend getting a trademark or whatever for a brand new streetwear brand?
JColt (1 year ago)
Thnx my dude, I started watching you just for learning hoy to print, and that actually made me wanna make my own brand, so I guess I'll see you on the next "class". Much love, peace.

This is awesome, actually I've a similar project, I will start with screen printing, the problem is that in Mexico there are no 50 50 t-shirt distributors :(
Would like to know more about your experience with cut/sew. How you find your manufacturers without them stealing your ideas, especially when outsourcing overseas? Any insight on anything business related and for starting a successful street wear brand would be highly appreciated. Look forward to the upcoming videos.
Thoughts on finishing for shirts, pros and cons of custom woven sewn in labels vs printed labels as a chapter on the fashion brand? The table leg montage was awesome had me in stitches, keep going Cam 🤘🔥📦
Joshua Whitlow (1 year ago)
Lovely.
RhyBeats (1 year ago)
Cam... for cut and sew, I would suggest going to the Magic show in Las Vegas in February and I believe they will have another one later this year. But the convention center is full of manufacturers from over seas and some here in the states for you to connect and get pricing. They also have the big dog street wear bands and Your start up brands at different hotels. I highly recommend you go. This is crazy with the timing. Planning on creating a brand myself

Ive had so many quality issues with printfull its ridiculous. Bad placement, sticky prints, literal holes in shirts. I just couldnt risk that stuff being sent to my customers because I have no way of knowing whats going out their door. But that was a blessing because its what got me in to screen printing for myself! and finding your channel haha but good luck with your new biz, love the artwork already :)

Cam- Without even realizing it, I too have started a brand. I made a couple shirts for the gun shows and this weekend i was peddling my shirts for the 4th event. People who bought my other shirts have come up to me telling me they are going to be back next show to see what new designs I'll have... Right now i have 4 designs and my 5th design is nearly ready; 6th and 7th designs are also in development. LOL! I hadn't even considered what I was doing as being a merch brand. Great Vid Cam-o!

The Print Life (1 year ago)
Right on Matt. Thanks for tuning in. Im stoked to get started on this project. I dont get to give to much of my time to it but I'm super excited.
Lee Stuart (1 year ago)
Fuck ya man, so hyped for this. You're definitely becoming one of my favorite channels to watch
Everybody and their grandma wants to sell their own shirts, which ironically seems to be why most of us printers start, lol... def an impacted market, I still plan to keep at it though.
Jason Enz (1 year ago)
And their grandmas bridge playing friends. I'm slowly planning something
The Print Life (1 year ago)
Oh for sure there is no time to wait. Everything is just a few weeks away from someone else beating you to it.
Heck yeah! Thats really the only reason Im fuckin with screen printing in the first place.... eyez on the prize still... been working on a brand for almost 5 years now, sat on it too long though and it materialized in the market by someone else... i find that happens a lot if your not careful or share a similar idea, and Ill be damned if I become a biter and make the same garbage as someone else so back to the drawing board for now. I literally have done 5 separate brands at this point, basically a brand a year, but never got my shit together...a few are still golden, just gotta pick. 2018 is the year though mang. Love all the new videos by the way - thanks!

The Print Life (1 year ago)
Yes sir I cant wait to see what you do with it. I will make sure to shout you out when the vids start posting.
Jason O'Connor (1 year ago)
My screen printing shop came to life the same way as yours. Wanted to print my own stuff, keep the margins, but found printing to be much more lucrative cause apparently after 8 years in the industry I don't know dick about selling t-shirts. Are you happy with the printful DTG quality? Are they reliable with their fulfillment?
The Print Life (1 year ago)
So far they are doing ok but we aint slamming them with orders yet.
Print Mafia (1 year ago)
Wow, you have a lot going on this year - nice! Also I have to say: that round light thing- when you look at it, your eyes just don't look right! and when it's sitting on the side it shines in our faces ! take care! ;)
Print Mafia (1 year ago)
Hahaha ok if that's the look you're going for, than it's perfect! ;) How many shirts do you print at monument per month?
The Print Life (1 year ago)
Not to much, Auku wont take up to much of my time. You dont like the way the ring light looks? I love it, kinda like a puffy music video from the late 90s
