Note: This list is incomplete, you can help the forums by contributing to it! Have a favourite thread from the general discussion forum? Post it up!

The above threads are not necessarily definitive - the current "slogan copyright" thread is more of a placeholder for example, I'm sure there are other great threads on the topic. So if you have better threads that answer the above questions, feel free to post those too.

We want a few of the best threads on each topic, so when better examples are found we can replace the weaker ones with those.

@jhengarfin If you read through the links in the post above, most (if not all) of those questions will be answered for you

This is another good place to start: start related topics at T-Shirt Forums

Hi Solum,

I hope you don't mind me messaging you? It's just that I noticed you are in Melbourne, and I would really love some advise or guidance, if you have the time etc. I've never been on a forum before, so I'm not really 100% sure how this all works, so I hope you don't mind me contacting you directly etc.

My name is Cassandra, and I currently work in the Aged Care Industry, I used to work for Ansett Airlines, I worked in and owned small children's boutique for a very short period, and I worked as a Nanny & Cleaner before as well. Basically, what I'm trying to say, is that I have absolutely no "Garment Industry" experience.

However, I may, starting soon, have an opportunity to work, for a friend, who has a factory in Bangladesh, specializing in knit fabrics, t-shirts, polo shirts, etc. I would be trying to find them "buyers" etc, can you please tell me where, and how I can get information on doing this etc? It would be very much appreciated.

Thank you

Kindest Regards

Cassandra
