Freelance t-shirt rates?

Hey guys, I'm an animator by trade but I've been getting some requests to do some freelance t-shirt designs, bands and stuff, just wondering what most people charge (ballpark) for that kind of work.

depends on what the shirt is for and how much exposure its gonna get. If its band merch and they plan on selling it then either get a decent flat rate or a percentage of the earning. That is usually how I function in the freelance field, for shirts or anything else really. Im sure others here have good pointers too.

I also cant see any of your old designs so I have no idea what your art looks like, its hard to say without looking at it.


Thanks for the reply. That's odd, I haven't submitted in a while but all my old submissions are dead links, weird. I would be curious to get some ballpark figures, lets say a flat rate for a small to medium exposure band that plays to average crowds of 100-300, assuming the design would be well received of course
