Post how to start an online t-shirt printing business?

Aspiring designers are often confident about embarking upon any business related to clothing industry. So if they are introduced to the industry of printing t-shirts, they think they will be able to handle everything smoothly. But when they actually start working on the new venture, they face hurdles and get stuck. Although such obstacles are small, they can pop up anytime during the entire process right from designing to printing. And when you are unaware about the full particulars related to t-shirt printing business, this is sure to happen.

We are quite aware of the fact that every designer has their own way of working and every print shop works on its own rules. But if your short term goal or dream is to have an t-shirt printing company of your own, we have come up with a ultimate guide to start an online t-shirt printing company which might help you to establish your business and run it successfully.

Step 1: Create A Business Plan

Step 2: Decide on the ecommerce solution for your web store

Step 3: Purchase an online product designer tool

Step 4: Make your design tool feature rich

Step 5: Select the printing method you will use

Step 6: Select the right t-shirt supplier

Step 7: Set up the printing infrastructure

Step 8: Set up logistics infrastructure

Step 9: Launch your store

Step 10: Market your store

Even though following the above steps will ensure you are doing everything right with your t-shirt business. But they do not guarantee success. You have to take all your business constraints into consideration, get the right vendors for web-to-print software, printing machines and t-shirts.

SO glad Step 1 is a business plan!

Most just jump right in without doing any research other than: "my friend in our bowling league stated they liked the idea and could provide TONS of clients!" lol

Would it be possible for you to start a thread for each of the 10 steps you outlined? I think they could be very helpful for many people on this forum.

Today, with the Internet and digital printing resources, there's no doubt you'll be facing some competition. The demand for custom printed T-shirts has increased. Before starting your own online t-shirt printing business, it is important to have a robust business plan. People always want something new innovative things nowadays.

If you have an e-commerce shop, you can provide your customers with a T-shirt design software using which they can craft beautiful designs, graffiti and use text and images of their choice.
