If you do a forum search for "software", you'll find lots of good suggestions: photoshop, coreldraw, illustrator, etc.
I have all three of the above, and use each one for different things.

Photoshop is great for colorful & photographic designs. The other two are great for vector art (which can be stretched & distorted without losing quality).

These are not for this industry alone. Pretty much, these can be used to design anything you can imagine. Which is why you won't find any t-shirt design software. If you do, it is probably a very similar copy of the same tools, etc. with a higher price tag.

There are many different clip art packages which will help you greatly in your designs. And you can find specific clip art packages made for the t-shirt industry. Most or all of the clip art you will find (from simple to detailed) can be edited and added on to with the above mentioned software. If you are not an artist, then the clip art will give you a starting point from which you can add text, change the colors, etc.

Do a search on the internet for "clip art package" (so you can design your own)and do a search on this forum for "stock transfers". There are quite a few threads with listings of websites to get already made designs.

Also check in the Heat Press section of this forum. They talk about stock transfers all the time.

When using clip art packages be sure to check the fine print. Many do not let you reproduce the clipart as the primary source of anything commercial (e.g. putting clipart on a shirt and printing it).

What I was referring to with the clip art which was specifically for this industry.

I see the dealers at the the tradeshows,so they must know they are going to be used on t-shirts.

Some examples I was thinking of were . . .

Smart Designer / Smart Designs or Jam'n Art LLC/Rivalart.com, and a few others.

You must read the . . .

Maybe use them for a reference and create your own look, then print them on shirts. Don't just modify them by percentage form because that is not valid.

I have found Illustrator and photo impact to be hard to learn but their are tutorials out there to help understand how they work. Once you dive into creating designs, it gets the creative juices flowing and is enjoyable.

Business reports, scrapbooking, 'what I did on my holidays' writeups, etc. etc.

There's a lot more to the world than just t-shirts :)
