Transform your Tee Biz

How graphic tee makers just like you are taking it to the next level

Tired of spinning your wheels chasing the next holiday trend?

Feel like it's a race to the bottom everywhere you sell?

Finding yourself in this cycle of sales then overwhelmed because only you can get the orders out the door?

Turn your 't-shirt job' into a leveled up graphic apparel and print business.

I remember the night I was printing in our basement at 3am. My daughter was sitting on the steps watching me. I had been standing on the concrete for HOURS I wasn't sure how to get the orders printed and ready for tomorrow.

We were stuck in this weird spot.

Some of it mindset some of it ..... I don't know maybe just plain old fear.

I looked at her and said ok this is it.

We either have to scale and take this business to the next level or we have to slow down, scale back, and do less business, because we can't be in this middle of never ending work any more.

Long story short, we made the decision to go all in and make it happen.

Like a whirwind afer making that decision we went from our house (we had totally taken it over you literally couldn't walk in our living room.) to a 4000 square foot warehouse.

I remember I sent my friend Donna a photo when we had moved everything to the shop.

She said Holy Cow! Now I know when Mae says 'it's time' that it's actually way past time for most people.

Donna was blown away by how much there was to move from our home to the warehouse.

When you look at this picture though, you can see.

Our home was no longer a home but a print shop. (this photo was every day, not part of the move we could not walk)

I couldnt believe how long I had waited or how much stress I had caused being afraid of taking the next step.

Maybe your thinking ok Mae sure. Moving to a big warehouse. That's the way to level up.

No! That's probably the absolute last thing you should do.

The key here is we made a decision. We had to decide we were going to level up not down. And in making this decision my mindshift changed and I could see the truth about the business.

I knew we couldnt possibly do any more production on our own.

We had tees coming out of our ears and literally could not cook in our house for fear it would cause our tees to smell like what we had for dinner. (yeah pretty crazy)

All I knew was we had to get serious and scale or fall back.

Yes, the move increased our efficiency instantly we brought on more team members AND we could stop having so many PB&J sandwiches for dinner.

But the life changing thing that happened was the knowledge I gained in that time.

Making the decision to scale (and not just have a 100 hour a week job) created opportunities I hadn't know about before.

Working with contract decorators, obtaining large contracts, working with other professionals in the industry.

All of this 'inside printer information' I hadn't had time to fully digest before.

I was too busy making sure our tees didn't smell like fried chicken 🙄

I hadn't realized my small thinking was keeping our business well, small.

We started leveraging this newfound knowledge to speed our growth and increase profits.

No more chasing the lastest holidays or printing at 3am.

We devoured the newest decorating techniques, found trusted suppliers and learned a whole new world.

A world where we didn't have to do everything on our own. A world where the extra time could be spent marketing, developing new products, building relationships with industry specialists, and you know having dinner. 😎

And you know what was really crazy we were actually making more on items not less even when someone else helped make them.

Can you imagine?

Having the knowledge to instantly know if a job should be done in house or if you should use a trusted partner.

Expanding your product line by 1000s of products without having to invest in new equipment or make it yourself (and no this is not print on demand)

Always having an opportunity to increase your avearge order by bundling with products you can't currently produce.

Space to have dinner (at your own dinner table) and the orders still going out on time.

Getting an order for 100 single color tees and knowing you can create those for less than $15 decoration cost. Yes I am saying that 100 tees could put $800-$1000 in your pocket. Or even better having the option for someone other than you to do the printing with near the same profit!

What if you could learn new decorating techniques as well and add more options to your offerings.

Options with a much faster production speed so you're making 75-100 shirts an hour?

Now that you are making 75+ shirts an hour. What if you hire?

And what if all of this created space for you to

Build an audience

Learn marketing strategies

Build your actual business not just make another job for yourself. A business that operates outside of you.

And space so you don't find yourself crying in the basement at 3am saying something has to give (yeah I was crying silently but there were tears)

Whether you want to make tees for the team, start a print-on-demand empire,

or something in between you are in the right place.

The print industry is BOOMING. It isn't going anywhere. In fact there are more tools to help you AND more opportunity to be successful than ever before!

The print industry may not be going anywhere....But you know what is?

LONG GONE are the days of the old folks with $100 thousand dollar presses and big dusty warehouses being the only ones to make money in the print world.

LONG GONE are the days that kept anyone without a trust fund from cashing in on the $25 BILLION + decorated apparel industry.

What the heck does this mean to you?

There's $25 Billion Dollars annually (and growing) in decorated apparel sales up for grabs.

It's time for you to get yours!

The Secret To Graphic Tees:

Ensure Every Move You Make Will Lead To More Sales, More Profit, And More FUN!

There's a $25 Billion + market for decorated apparel, and it's not going anywhere.

I want to show you how to set up your own print shop today so you can have your own slice of this (very delicious) pie.

The average Disney vacation costs around $5000 (or more) so my first question is, have you done the math?

5

5 DAYS AT DISNEY.

8

TAKE AWAY THE 8 HOURS A NIGHT YOU SLEEP.

80

THAT’S 80 WAKING HOURS AT

A PARK THAT’S 55 SQUARE MILES, THE SIZE OF SAN FRANCISCO.

If you’re dropping $5000 on this vacation, that’s $62 you’re spending every hour.

Here's the real scoop on what it's like to have a graphic tee shop:

You’re paying Disney World nearly $500 a day to deal with logistics that turn most children into micro-monsters.

If there's one thing I know, it's all the big questions that would-be tee sellers have:

After a 12 hour day, I raced to the bus stop and JUST missed the bus and had to wait 30 minutes at midnight for the next one.

Even though we secured a coveted fastpass for Avatar, it happened to overflow right into our dinner reservation and we missed our chance to eat with the characters.

Arriving at our hotel after a long flight, we wandered around the resort for 3 hours waiting to check in!

We could never get good seating for any of the shows, fireworks, or parades. My husband tried to put our kids on his shoulder but they ended up fighting over who got more time and we definitely pissed off people around us.

It’s NO WONDER people worry about the cost of their trip and is it going to be worth it.

Does starting your print shop feel like a huge risk?

With so much TO MANAGE, FROM SOURCING TO MARKETING TO INVENTORY...

who wants to bet their savings on a BUSINESS with so many possible PROBLEMS?

  • WORRY #1: Not knowing what products are good enough to sell & feeling like you don't know how to find them.

  • Worry #2: Not knowing what people will like & facing a bunch of refunds (ouch!)

  • Worry #3: Not knowing how to produce the goods & what the best printing methods are for which things

  • Worry #4: Not knowing what equipment to buy (not to mention how to use & maintain it)

  • Worry #5: Not knowing how to sell your stuff & lowkey hating social media, especially as a place to sell stuff

  • Worry #6: Not knowing how to manage inventory... or whether to do drop-shipping... or Print-On-Demand... or anything

Well... I've got some good news for you.

You know that phrase "everything is figure-out-able"?

Yeah. That includes tee print shops.

I know, because I've figured it all out. And now I want to help you!

THIS SHIRT THAT PERFECTLY CAPTURES MY DAUGHTER

The moment you find the PERFECT souvenir

The delicious cool Dole Whip after riding Pirates

Look, I know there are things in life that feel like a huge risk with no guarantee of success of payoff.

But your print shop doesn't have to be one of those things.

I've been selling online since the dinosaurs were roaming the earth, and I first opened my graphic tee shop back in 2019.

Since then, I've made all the mistakes. I've tried all the stuff. I've figured it out. And now I'm sitting on a business that's sold 7+ figures I can run with my mostly-grown kids.

All because I took a chance.

Now it's your turn to take a chance... only you will be facing a lot less risk than I did! Because you will have my help every step of the way.

This print business set my whole family on a path of successful entrepreneurship, creative expression, and autonomy... and now I want to help you do the same for you and yours!

OMG I think I'm going to be sick as I just went live with my Shopify page. It's been on my to do list since August, but I never got it done because I just didn't understand the ins and outs of how to move it from Pattern to Shopify. THANK YOU Mae Cee for the fabulous Shopify class. Because of your patience and teachings, I no longer have all my eggs in the Etsy basket. I learned so much that I went ahead and pulled the trigger. I still have a lot of items to add, but it's LIVE!!

Have any questions?

How is all this information delivered? When can I access it? How long do I get to have it?

All the material is delivered via Teachable. You'll receive a login from Teachable where you can access the members area.

The lessons are a combination of video and text, with transcripts as well.

You get unlimited access to the material -- it never expires and you have no deadlines.

Live training is broadcast to the member support group in Facebook and Zoom access is offered. Then the replays will be posted in your members area.

Will this give me everything I need or will I need other items?

In order to create items yourself in your own print shop, you will need a commercial heat press. BUT. You do not have to have one right away. That said, I do suggest getting one when you can, AND there are a lot of options.

We talk about this at length in Graphic Tee Academy And have some experts [like Jared with Heat Press Nation] come in and share his favorites as well. * Note if you are starting with or staying with POD you do NOT need a heat press.

Items like blank apparel, transfers, and some software - like website or mockup costs should be expected BUT I teach from the approach of starting slow and working with what you have.

In terms of "knowledge" you should have everything you need in Graphic Tee Academy.

Are you ready to dive in and do this thing?

I remember what it was like to sit there and wonder if I could really make this happen... if I should take this leap of faith or do something safer... more normal.

But you know what? We aren't meant to be normal, whatever that even means. And so I went for it.

Now I look back at that decision and I am so grateful for the opportunities and experiences my graphic tee shop has given me. Without this business, I would be spending way less time with my kids as they navigate the young adult years.

So if you ask me, I will tell you... seize this opportunity to change your life for the better. You never know what's coming around the bend, but there's one thing we do know:

Graphic tees, print, ecom are here to stay.
