Regional A is like Long Medium Priority. Regional B is like square Medium Priority. Both are slightly smaller. 

You pay based on how many regions away you are shipping and based on one of 3 weight classes. Under 2lbs, 2-4lbs, over 4lbs. Under 2lbs East Coast is the cheapest for us.

 

There are also APO boxes which are slightly larger flat rate but they are only for shipping to military bases. Same price any base no matter where in the world it is.

Figure about 4-6 weeks to get T-Shirts – busy time of year for the distributor.

That sounds really long. Have you tried any local mom and pop shops, they usually can crank out low volumes in a week?

Why are regional boxes a PIA. That makes no sense.

You can get the boxes - but how do you make up labels for them?  You need to use stamps.com or another service.  Even Paypal shipping doesn't do regional rate boxes.

Ebay I know does, PayPal does not, I am pretty sure USPS does but I can’t check since their shipping part of the site is down.

Make it easy on yourself. Charge everybody who wants them shipped, $10, no matter the quantity ordered, and ship them anyway you want. The profit you'll get on one will offset the loss on multiples. Besides, you're making a buttful on the shirts anyway.

Shipping:

I prefer NOT  to ship these, but I have posted shipping charges below

 

What I intend to do is:

 

I will handle distributing the shirts for North Jersey, I can meet people at RTSP

 

I will also coordinate a day where people can meet me at GSSC to pick up their shirts, we can also designate a person(s) to pick up shirts for other people in the Central Jersey area.

 

I would also like a volunteer from South Jersey to meet me at GSSC to hand off shirts for the South Jersey area.

 

FWIW i work up in Newark once in a while. I Can always pick shirts up while i'm there for people, and they are welcome to swing by my house in Glassboro to pick them up. I Won't go out of my way to deliver them or anything though.
Shipping for $6 is very reasonable. Throw em in a bubble mailer and ship em First Class.

BTW, Are the shirts going to be ready in Nov/Dec? Or are you just accepting orders until then and distributing them throughout November?
I'm in for one or two, for sure. Wondering what brand the blanks are, im sure others might want to know too? Just wondering if i'll be a Small (Generally) or if to go with a Medium.

Wait whats the issue with shipping?
Stick em in an envelope. I Can hook you up with a box through my supplier, if you're interested LMK. We go through a bunch of padded envelopes..
First class (probably 1 shirt; under 16 ounces) is going to run you about $3.50.
Any more than that, priority mail within NJ up to a few pounds (Box will be small, its just shirts; and i can hook you up with boxes too at my rates FWIW) will be well under 10$. I'm talkin 6 or 7 bucks within NJ for half a dozen shirts squished in a box, id bet.
I Ship a few thousand boxes a year, but i ship through eBay, so the only discount i get is basically the standard 'online' discount.
You can print the labels right thru paypal.

We got it - Troy and I will handle.  Yeah it's a few bucks but it requires labor and materials to print/tape/etc.

Oh obviously dude i get it. Your rates are completely reasonable as previously mentioned. I'm well aware of what it requires I Charge anywhere from 3 to 5$ as a handling fee to cover expenses (Fuel, ink, etc).
Was just pointing out that you dont have to spend 14$ on flat rate boxes, there's cheaper alternatives.
If you guys need any shipping supplies and are close to Newark i can bring some up for you.

Not online it isn't. Either way I'm sure you will figure out the best way

T-shirts will probably overseas origin ...... but Malice told me he has been wearing this guys shirts for years, and they hold up great.

Already getting pretty good response on people PM'ing me for orders....

I will send out the 1st set of invoices sometime next week....

Someone said printing the shirts on other colors like black and grey would be so much more expensive. Like a few bucks expensive or $10+ each expensive? Would be nice to have the option at least..

Yes..... adding the extra layer on a colored shirt was about $10 more..... not in the cards on this run....

I am not ruling it out for a future run....

They are pretty nice. Seem pricey. Did you take competitive bids? 

Custom small run of t-shirts with multiple colors - yes of course it's pricey.  Custom shirts anywhere are pricey.
