We have had a number of inquiries related to quantity price breaks in both blank orders and decoration orders. Our goal is to help guide you in creating efficiently priced orders.
The wholesale apparel and decoration business operates on volume. For this reason there are typically price breaks for larger orders. Blankstyle offers discounts based on the quantity you purchase. To keep the ordering process simple it’s not always apparent where the most efficient quantity breaks are for your order. Please use this blog as a guide to help you order efficiently.
When purchasing blank apparel your price breaks are based on the quantity per brand you purchase. This means you are able to mix and match styles within a brand and utilize the total number of pieces you purchase to determine your price break. Often items of the same brand are warehoused and can be shipped together cutting down on overall cost. Additionally decorating within a brand has more consistent results. The pricing tiers are listed below.
When creating a decoration order you should first consider the price of the garment or the tier you will qualify for. The blank apparel tiers do not change for decoration orders. The decoration tiers are simply layered on top. This will become clear in the example shown below. Take a look at the tiered price breaks for each method and the examples we have listed.
