Sale of design T-shirt and custom clothing has been the “in thing”for the past few years and this can be attributed,mostly, to the model of crowdsourcing. This model is akin to the Kickstarter model wherebyyou as the seller need to have sold the product (by word of mouth) to other people before it is then manufactured.In other words, you would create a unique T-shirt design and pre-sell at least 10 piecesin order for the printing company to fund and kick start the process of manufacturing. This is a great way for entrepreneurs and designers to own both an offline and an online t-shirt store.
More so, you need not have any experience before using this model as it is very easy to use.
