Help!!! I need help making my ideas into a an actual design I will be able to print on our shirts. I want to ask the expert opinion out there and see what your advice is. I don't know any graphic programs at all. I have Photoshop 6.0 but don't know how to use it. I wanted to print my shirts at the end of the month, but I have to first figure out how to create the designs. I know there are websites out there where you can tell them what you want (design wise) and then they create it. WIth just starting out, I don't know which way to go. I think we have some great ideas I just don't know what avenue to take to make them actually materialize. Any advice would be much appreciated. Thank you all for your advice on previous posts as well. Oh last question, does anyone have any links to websites that will sell me already made shirts (vintage ect) and then I can just sell them on our T-shirt shop (maybe in Asia or other countries)
THanks

The only advice I can give you on photoshop is to set aside a ton of time to learn how to get around. Either that, or find a buddy who's good with it and cut them in on the business in exchange for their talents.

In regards to the retro shirts, I'm doing a case study on vintagevantage.com for my MBA. I just found some pretty cool articles on what that guy does. It appears that he goes shopping in thrift stores for his shirts. And then marks them up ridiculously and some people still buy them. Here's a nice article:

Speaking of selling retro shirts overseas, I found this link as well and it blew my mind:
