@McDude9999 Despite needing less materials, kids blanks for the imprint market can cost as much as or even more than the adult sizes at wholesale.
Additionally, Mediocritee would have to validate compliance with all CPSIA regulations. This is a considerable expense that is unfeasible for the current selling prices here. Also, the smaller shirt sizes will require another set of printing screens, adding additional cost.
– Triple the price of kids shirts only, which means very very very low sales, if any at all. It’ll have a side effect of yielding irate posts along the lines of “Why does a shirt with like half the material cost three times as much?” too.
– Raise the prices for everyone to offset all of the additional costs (and losses) of offering the kids sizes.
– Not offer any kids sizes at all, so the majority of the market, which are adults, can get great designs at a great price.
@narfcake Had no idea that stupid regulation applied to t-shirts, of all things. I don’t imagine you could sell midget sized or dwarven t-shirts. Looks like the regulation may be generic enough to have thought of that. Bah. I’ll just make em wear them like dresses.
@mj I heard that from my grandparents, who lived through the Depression, but not so much my parents. I grew up in California and so did my dad’s family, but maternal side came to CA from Oklahoma, so midwest sort of.
@mj I’m from the midwest (Wisconsin/Illinois), and it was a thing there and I am proud member. When I moved west most people would give me odd looks when I mentioned it at meals.
FYI, for the write-up person, that leftover sauce/gravy/whatever, that’s what bread is for … make that plate shine!
Omg! Perfect 5 second rule design. Buying for: one germaphobic child who can mow through a whole roll of paper towels per day with constant hand washing. One child who cackles in glee at my horror as they eat fries directly off the table at Five Guys.
