Assuming its long sleeve, decent quality, and the print isn't awful...about 40-50? Rash guards are expensive and if its supporting the school, you have to expect about 10$ mark up.

Anything less, and I'm gonna think its a cheap rash guard and waste of money, and anything more I would feel ripped off.

This is without looking at anything, and just off the top of my head. So, maybe Im way off?

Depends..if it's branded with a top brand (A&P/SYR), it can push max at 65-70.  If it is just your team, I think $60 is tops.  Most people are willing to pay $50.

40-50 is what I would expect to pay and probably purchase 2.  More than that and I might buy 1.  Less and I would buy several.

Ours were $60, told they were compulsory, and then changed to optional after the orders. Don’t do that shit.

I am literally ordering some right this minute for my small school. I got the mock ups yesterday and am presenting them to the members tonight.

These are custom long sleeves, with school logo on front and small association logo on back. my cost is $37 dollars each. Selling them on pre-order fo $40. $55 later.

This is my first foray into this, and had no idea what to charge, so i chose a price I thought was fair, then tried to find a rashguard that fit in the spot.

The point is get your brand out there and have your members rep the team logo. Not so much to make money. Like the one poster said it's a gym, not a haberdashery. It's one thing if you're marketing your rash guards to the world and expecting to make some cash. It's another to use gym members as a built-in, guaranteed market and expect to profit off of them. It's even worse if you make buying a rash guard is a membership requirement.

If I could buy team/school/gym rashguards for $30, I would probably buy multiples on a routine basis. One for every day of training and then need to only do laundry at the end of the week (6 training days).

Get your brand out there?  It's a Ribeiro affiliate! The brand is out there!  You want him to risk inventory costs and upfront capital to build a brand he doesn't own? Lol

 

You'd go under in less than 6 months.
