T-Shirts
« on: February 22, 2006, 04:29:56 PM »
I have a few questions.  I have been using cafepress.com for over a year to sell shirts from my website.  I have also looked at spreadshirt.com, and although they seem to have better products they are also more expensive.

So the questions:
1) Does anyone have an opinion on these (or other similar) t-shirt vendors?
2) Does anyone know of an easy (hopefully free or cheap) vector image maker? I have an old version of Macromedia FreeHand, but the interface is awful.

Thanks for your advice,
James

PS. Not to overdo it, but if anyone wants to see some of my shirts, check them out at:

wow, if you're using an old Freehand, I don't think you want to go to a free vector maker. I just can't remember if "gimp" is bitmap or vector, but search for it. You could get a used Illustrator on ebay, I guess.

Opinion on Cafepress: yes, they mark up the product so your audience has to pay more for a tee than if they went to the flea market, but they also handle print-on-demand and shipping AND billing, so it's well worth the markup.

I had just made a website and I am also searching for the same. I had not yet started any thing but I am sure that you r suggestion will be very helpful to me. I am having t-shirts and shirts and lots of more varieties available. It is a very good suggestion given by you.

For vector designs I highly recommend Corel Draw, although Adobe InDesign should also be considered. I believe that as long as you have quality designs any platform you may use would work.

You should use free classified ads and referral sites to sale your T shirts but the most important thing is design, you should make your shirt designs very attractive and colorful that people will motivate to buy them fast.
