Sure. I can go down and make up a silkscreen in an afternoon and be printing shirts by the same night. I can go to a shop too and probably pick it up the next day. Hell, if I have a cricut machine, I’ll have an iron on in under an hour. And I can always just put one of my stickers on a shirt in seconds.
But there’s something to be said for “putting my money where my mouth is” and giving the company I love some extra dough to get their swag. When a company sells a t-shirt for $25, it doesn’t go at cost, and while that money is at the margins, it makes me feel like I’m supporting them without having to buy a four-figure box of electronics.
If the company doesn’t want to sell swag because it’s just another thing to keep track of? More power to them. And then I make my own like I did my Bill the Cat t-shirts I screened for me and my friends in high school. But it doesn’t hurt to ask.
If they don’t want to do it, maybe I’ll make up a screen and sell y’all some shirts. At cost, of course since I shouldn’t be making money on their identity.
Your mileage may vary.
