  • First off, if your plan is to go from store to store pitching t-shirt "Ideas" then you will be going nowhere fast. You should start off by designing and printing your line first then setting up an online store through services such as big cartel. After you have gained some type of fan base you can start approaching retail stores about stocking your line.

    Obviously it is a lot of work to actually design a line, build a website, and get everything printed so you might want to outsource and pay someone to design your website and then obviously have a reputable printer, like threadbird, to get everything printed. Retail stores won't print anything for you so you will have to pay for this yourself.

    If you are serious about this I reccommend you have atleast 2 grand to invest in the beginning. If you are dead set on designing all of your shirts by yourself you can probably get by with a bit less. In my opinion your first launch should contain at least 4 designs, anything less than that is really not a line.

    You shouldn't worry too much about being ripped, but oviously that is something all designers deal with, so if the problem arises you will just have to figure it out.

    Some sites to check out would be:
