There are several software packages like that. Some that you can install on your site, and some that are already hosted and ready to use.

ExpertLogo.com
ShirtSoftware.com
Pikiware.com
RSKTech.com
harboarts.com

Those are the ones that seem to be the most well known.

Piki wear is confusing me... Do you print the items or do they? Who gets the money? do they get a percent of it?

Hey Dan,

I check out one of the sites and I like it, I wanted to know did you upload the clip art or could I upload some for guest to see.

Do you pay monthly for pikiware or one time up front amount?

Thanks again

Their website is a bit confusing. YOU do the printing, they just host the software and you pay a monthly fee.

More info and clarification from the pikiware folks themselves are in this thread: Has anyone used pikiware yet?

That's also part of the confusing part An optional part of their software also allows YOU to be a "cafepress" type site (in that you can offer YOUR customers stores that collect sales on uploaded designs that YOU print and fulfill)

Is there any software that I can buy and own? I have enough monthly fees right now and really dont wish to add to them. Would rather pay a grand and own it then be stuck paying for the life of my company which could be a bunch more.

matto,

do you really think someone is going to spend time and effort to bring a online tee shirt designer and sell it for $1,000.00. Look at rsk it is over $2,000 per year to lease it. But they give you a site a web cart the whole 9 yards.

There was on place i cant remember on the web that had something for $600.00, you might as well have used crayola crayons to draw the art. Less then very basic.

Just remember you will always only pay for what you get. Please come into the 21 st century it aint gonna happen.

Bob

Hmm let me think about that. I run software for artwork that is probably 100 times more powerfull than a little markup for a shopping cart. I can puchase and own it. I do believe it will eventually show up.

For now I will use the cart that is offered by which ever host I choose to put my site on. I dont need someone to design my site I can do that myself(xhtml/css). yeah its a pain but hey new skills are valuable.
When I finish my site and it goes live, if it can prove it is worth 2000k a year I would do the RSK but not right out of the gate. This is still a hobby for me, just happens to pay for itself.

I do imagine my friend(BOB) that if there were such a program available for sale that was worth owning you would be in line with a bunch of others......right behind me in the 21st century.
Good day!

Matto,

You may be correct, but for what the pikiware does for you-- best on line tee designer-if you tried it you would say holy@$%%^crap. there is none out there that has so many features. the back office is wonderful and the platform that the software is developed on is much better than rsk. Yes rsk clones all there sites pikiware will let you do wonders with the site if you have some knowledge as you profess to have. Before you make bold statements you should have sufficient info to back it up - have you even looked at pikiware. Hmmmm or maybe you will end up in the 18th century with crayons.
