    Hey Mike,

    There are many ways you can go about starting a tshirt business. Here are two methods that I have had experience with before.

    If you are limited on funds I would suggest looking into Teespring. It is a site that allows you to sell tshirt with no cost to you. But in return they will take out a percentage of the profits.

    Another way you can start a tshirt business is with an online store. I know shopify has a good ecommerce site for beginners, and you can either find your own company that will print your shirts. Or you can team up with sites like printful that will fulfill the printing process, and the shipping.

    I hope this guides you in the right direction. and helps you out a bit!

    Why not start with teespring and make sure that people like what you are designing? If you have success there, then move to your own t-shirts?

    First of all: I want to tell you that I find it great that you found your strength and want to use it to make money. I see too many good designers trying to become writers and writers who want to be designers etc. Focusing on your strengths is the first step to success.

    Chris has indeed a good idea: Use Teespring to test some of your shirt designs and especially learn how you can get traffic (the marketing side of your business). Once you learnt how to do this profitable, you can either stick with Teespring or start your own ecommerce shop.

    Good luck. I tried being an affiliate for a t shirt business and got nowhere. I had an ad on facebook but no sales. Needless to say I don't recommend trying to sell on facebook unless you want to spend money on ads and never see an roi.

      Is there any other way to promote teespring tshirts except FB ads?

      Or we have to invest money to promote it for selling in large amount.

    You could start a print-on-demand business with Teespring, TeeChip, Zazzle, or Cafepress. It's free to set up an account and putting your designs on products is as easy as uploading the image.

    There's many ways you could promote your products too. If you're looking for free advertising try posting your products in pages related to the product niche. Or you could pay for ppc advertising or Facebook ads.
