Once the silk-screening is completed, the T-shirts can bepackaged in tin cans that have a slot in the top to serve a secondfunction of a piggy bank. T-shirts in a can make a terrific noveltygift and can be sold to retailers on a wholesale basis or directly toconsumers via a sales kiosk or the internet.
Furthermore, to keepinitial startup costs to a minimum, the silk-screening aspect of thebusiness can be contracted to a local silk-screener as opposed topurchasing the equipment.
