Default starting a small business on DTG printing. Need advice

Hello all,

My husband has a DTG printer and he does his own thing. I also want to sell personalized baby items (like blankets, onesies, etc.). I am thinking to start a small business to make a pocket money and contribute to family income. I bought some limited fabric but I do not have lots of budget. I am thinking to sell on Etsy and instagram. My question is since these items are personalized and I do not have enough budget to print too many samples to show my work how would you proceed in this circumstance?
Would you print sample designs for every item or would you use photoshop.Would you print the design first and then the name when you get the order. Any other advice and idea? I am kinda lost in all different ideas. Any advice on how to start a small business is really appreciated.

If it's all personalized, doing a quick mockup in Photoshop shouldn't be a big deal. Check out any site that lets you design your own shirt and you're basically looking at the same thing. It's the stuff you carry all the time that you might want to nab a real picture of.

Mocking up with a nice proof sheet in photoshop will work fine. Make sure to pay attention to proportions on mockups so customer gets an accurate scaled print in the end.

Hi.

You can also try your designs on some specialized websites for mockups and videos. I like placeit.net.
