    I've managed to get my hands on a website (and business) for a top-ranked domain in apparel in my local location. It's a business that I've done SEO for and the owner (an elder lady), being a family friend, is getting close to passing. She's passed the business on to our family, although while it's the top ranked business it's slowly going under due to the sheer volume of requests versus the amount of time we have to actually maintain it.

    I've spoken to the lady and have gotten her blessing to move the business into an online platform instead of running a physical shop, she said that she understands that moving things to the internet is the future. With that being said I'm curious..

    Currently this business sells the following:

    • T-Shirts
    • Hats
    • Coffee Cups / Mugs
    • Custom Print Bracelets
    • Misc items: (Amazon friendly)

    I'm wondering if there's any business/company out there where I can have people design their own apparel and purchase it. They'll print it out and ship it and I'll earn a percentage of the cost. All of the machinery that we currently own is fairly old and we don't understand how to use it very much, not only that, but we just don't have time to physically run the business, nor the money to hire people to run it. It was just a small business the woman ran as a hobby.

    I've written my own apparel creation software where people can create Shirts, etc with their own images. Companies that have one built in for the product would make things easier as I wont have to customize it and get designs approved.

    Thanks in Advance

    Hi Synchro I've been looking at these guys for exactly the same thing - they seem pretty established and have FB, twitter etc. teezily.com (sorry newbie so can't post a link).

    Thanks for the heads up, unfortunately this isn't what I'm looking for. I have a T-Shirt builder on my website that clients can use to create their own shirts. I want someone that I can send the designs to and they'll create the shirt and ship it. I'm talking to a few local businesses.

    Teezily also requires that you sell a certain amount of product before printing. I need it printed and shipped on order.
