Hey artists !

DMK is t-shirt brand in Morocco since 2012, today we're looking to expand our design library with all kind of styles.

If you are ok to work with a royalty system, please let me know..

    Royalty system?
    So, the lucky designer will receive likely 5-10% of the 3 shirts that you end up selling.
    Go get some goddamn money and pay for a designer you cheap-ass.

    Yeah... seems like everyone had a bad experience with royalties ^^"
    so just let me tell you that you can sell your designs to anyone you want since he don't use it in Morocco.
    in addition we have an on line app who calculate royalties live !

    Yeah, this guy bugged me on my personal Facebook the other day. Figured it was spam right away.

    Simply put: No one in their right mind will use your service when your site looks like that. Beyond that, even if you had a nice looking website, the business model itself doesn't favor your customers.

    There are plenty of sites that do what you're trying to do. However, they all have a professional brand, website, and business model that isn't set up to give their customers peanuts for their hard work.

    Yes the website is not yet ready just like many other things regarding this project. I think to contact the designers now to win some time.

    so far I have two future collaboration promises but it is true that most designers do not like the royalty system.

    My question is : do you think that the high price of design can prevent any brand forward ?
    view that there is no guarantee that the shirt will be sold in a profitable way. But with a royalty system everybody wins or everybody loses no ?

    Anyway thank you I will return to you once everything is set up.

    If you can't afford to pay for the proper design work to launch a brand, you can't afford to launch a brand. So no, I don't think the price of design is preventing anyone from starting a company. You should know going in that starting a company is expensive and you should have a budget set aside for everything, including design work. Printing your merch is going to cost you just as much or more than the design work. So if you can afford to print your stuff, you better be able to afford to pay for the designs you are printing.

    Royalty systems are shit, unless you are already an established company that is selling a significant amount of merch. For a start up to offer a royalty payment system to designers is insulting. There is absolutely no guarantee you will ever sell anything and most likely won't sell enough to match the designer's usual rates. So if a designer does agree to it, you are getting their work for a fraction of the usual cost. Sure, it lowers your risk of starting a business but it is insulting to the designer. Like I said before, if you are starting a brand, you better have a budget for design.

    I have a question. I am looking to create a line of swag for my Cannabis store in Seattle. We will be selling both in a brick and morter and online storefront. I am not a designer so I am out looking for design help. My question to the community is what should I expect to pay for good quality design work? I also want to support local artists and do want to include some sort of ADDITIONAL incentive program so while I see that most of you don't like the "royalty" model what would you think of someone who was offering to pay for your designs (albeit hopefully at a slight discount) with the additional royalty plan as incentive? Any feedback is welcome. Thanks!

    Royalty means nothing to me unless I'm very very confident the store can sell AT LEAST hundreds if not thousands of shirts. The reality is most places will sell something like 10 - 20 shirts at $20 at perhaps a 10% royalty so we're talking $20 - $40. No one that's really good at what they do will be too excited by that. If I'm going to take a risk on a royalty structure I want the shot at making thousands from what I did.

    If you pay a designer something like $300 up front and then offer a royalty on top of that an offer like that can become more attractive. Every designer is different and will work for a different rate, you really have to find people you like and present them with an offer. Expect to pay at least 50% up front.
