    How we work with you to help you raise gift shop revenue

    Low minimum order size: $500 in retail value, which is about 20 shirts or about 30 mugs.  

    Good margin: 40% off of retail.

    High quality: Everything we sell is very high quality, and your customers will see that immediately. While some items, such as t-shirts, may be more expensive than the run-of-the-mill t-shirt, your customers will feel the softness and see the distinctive branding.  

    Easily the most comfortable t-shirt I own, and I basically live in it! 

    Love this V neck shirt! It is so soft and comfortable..great for traveling! 

    The fabric is nice and soft and great quality. One of my t-shirt pet peeves is a cheap shirt that is see through and this is not the case with this t-shirt. The length is perfect hitting about mid hip. I am 5' 8" and ordered a size Med. I get compliments each time I wear it!

    Recommended initial order: To get a good sense of the response of your customers, we recommend . . .

    • History Nerd shirts across the size range and in different colors, as well as mugs, stickers, and magnets. 
    • "Life, liberty, and the pursuit of history" shirts and stickers.
    • The Stamp Act Repeal t-shirts, with the skull and crossbones, are distinctive and appeal strongly to a certain set of customers.
    • For sites with a connection to the Revolution, include Revolutionary Superheroes shirts and stickers in your order.
    • For sites with a connection to one or more signers of the Declaration of Independence, include our "1776 - Great Historic America Road Trip to the Birthplaces and Homes of the Signers of the Declaration of Independence" shirts and stickers in your order.

    Tips:

    • The V-neck shirts are very popular with women. Merchandise them in a way that allows buyers to immediately see that there is a V-neck option.
    • The black Revolutionary Superheroes shirts really stand out and appeal strongly to a segment or buyers. Don't think of them as shirts for kids. These are very popular with adults. (We don't currently offer them in sizes for kids.)
    • To draw attention to your Revolutionary Superheroes items, get a few of the Revolutionary Superhero posters and put one up, either attached to the wall or dry mounted to foam core.
    • Place some of the stickers and magnets at checkout. They're a popular add-on item.
