    Ive been looking around and was wondering how other sellers design t shirts to sell so fast, i mean there are some sellers with like 20,000 listings and they only have 500 feedback and have just started. No way they designed all those 20,000 listings. What is the fast way to get some cool looking t shirts designs done ?

    I'm not sure about the design aspect but there is a really cool new service called print on demand. The printing technology for t-shirts has gone from a very labor intensive procedure to a printer process similar to your inkjet printer. It used to be that shirts had to be printed in large batches to justify the setup costs.

    The new process called DTG (direct to garment) is cheaper for one off options.

    There is a company that has streamlined the process for ordering which can be a huge pain if you have ever worked with customized products. They are lesser know but all the other customizers are utilizing their api and selling their white label service. Google "scalable press" and you can start getting quotes.

    They will print and drop ship a single shirt direct to your customer.

    I have not really seen custom shirts being done on ebay by the way. Do you have any examples? Would love to see how to get into this game :D

    There might be huge bundles with premade designs on torrent sites or being sold somewhere. Additionally those people might be dropshipping existing designs from other providers and some might be using multiple providers for an even larger diversity. I seriously doubt that somebody would invest the time and effort to get 20,000 unique designs by themselves or even hiring designers for such a large quantity. So it's probably on of those options.

    Thats what I assumed but for the price they charge I think drop shipping is not possible. I could not find anything on torrent sites either.

    by the way, for shirt designs you can check out 99designs . Maybe you could also get them printed at a local screen printer and ship yourself?
