Hi Les, welcome to the T-Shirt Forums.

What was your plan to sell the t-shirts before you had them printed? Who is your target market?

You have 12 designs or 12 tee shirts? and as Rodney asked "What was your plan to sell the t-shirts before you had them printed? have you ever noticed that places like Best Buy and large non clothes stores have employee rooms. See if you can place a flyer on their bullitan board. Lots of young people work in thos places.

I had planned to sell them online before,but was unsure,being new to this.Right now,I am back and forth with my decision.They're 12 T-shirts with the same design.

Not to sound harsh or anything, but ideally, you should have a specific plan on how you plan to sell a product before you actually get the product made. That way, when the product is printed and ready, you already have your marketing lined up and the research done.

With only 1 t-shirt design and 12 pieces in inventory, you could do it either way. You could setup a website and then advertise that website in search engines, offline, myspace, etc. You could use PayPal to collect money for the orders.

Or you could try to sell them on a college or high school campus (depending on where you go to school), or maybe at a school event.

12? As in 12 pieces only? You could do just about anything... sell them on a street corner, go door to door, have a stall at a market, advertise them on your pre-existing website (if applicable), sell them to friends and/or family and/or co-workers, go to a local park and sell them to joggers, eBay.

For twelve shirts it's not worth the effort of setting up a website. A retailer may buy them from you (especially for sale by consignment), but they may not be interested in such a low quantity (they might though if they like trialing things).
