Hi everybody good to be a part of the forum. Hope to learn alot of new info on starting up my Tshirt business. I am also a freelance graphic designer. Ok, thanks to whoever took the time to read my entry.
A few of my designs screenprinted on plain black or white shirts. Im completely new to this. I will start off small to see how people react to my designs. I also want to learn more about all over prints. And what I mean by that is being able to print a large graphic wherever I want on the shirt, not just the basic small square area on the front of a tee. I know nothing of this yet or how it is done. My target audience will be any style mixed between Rap,MMA,Underground,Rock.. I do not want to ride the bandwagon of mma t shirt artists as I believe I could stand out in my graphics. I've been using Photoshop for years, but am starting to learn alot about Illustrator, which is perfect for designing for any clothing. Thanks for the reply
wow! that sounds cool..i was actually in a band a few years ago in NYC (kinda hardcore metal-ish...lots of screaming/growling etc--i was the lead singer) and my husband and i started a tee business...then were side tracked with custom embroidery for companies...but since we have all that settled...we want to go back into the t shirt biz and kinda create a different MMA style of tees. all over prints are cool...(we are heavily into MMA).
In any case, i wish you lots of luck..just don't give up and everything blow you take will be a stepping stone towards something bigger and better.
