A store strictly for soccer on the north side of Chicago, He used to own his own store named Centrum Sports so he gave me a lot of valuable info. For example, Adidas charges roughly $29.99 per jersey if you buy in cases of 250. This means that I will spend roughly $7500.00 on one batch of Adidas jerseys. Team emblems cost $3.00 each. This adds up to $8250.00. The numbers and letters for the jersey is a lot cheaper. I can make 2 numbers or 2 letters a sheet and each case of iron on letters/numbers has 25 sheets. Each Case of 25 sheets costs $10.00. This is harder to calculate because each player has different amount of letters in their last name but ill just add $50.00 to each jersey. So I am spending $33.50 on each jersey. I can sell each jersey for 59.99 and make $26.49 on each jersey sold.
