    So me and my friends, who are regular gym users came up with an idea for a t-shirt brand, and to be honest I think it could do pretty well.

    We want to start by promoting locally, by wearing the t-shirts and having the URL on the back. We will hand out t-shirts to other gym goers at other gyms, to get the brand name out a little.

    I have big plans though. I can run advertising campaigns, run competitions, and although we are based in the UK, I think we can get started in the US and Europe too (Through the power of IM)

    I was wondering if anyone knew of any companies (UK or Worldwide) that let you upload your own designs, and take care of all the shipping for you? I know there is teespring but I want to set up my own ecommerce site, I don't want to host through Teespring.

    I know there is spreadhsirt, but for a t-short with a custom design you are looking at around £20 ($32) and that's just ridiculous!

    Any help would be appreciated

    That's is a really high price when I know for a fact it costs less including labour. My brother runs a t shirt printing service and I could help you out with planing and such if you need some advice.

    Add me on skype if you wish to discuss further

    This website is pretty dope, thanks a lot for the link. I'm not OP, however I am looking for a dropshipper of custom apparel as well- and this business is a wholesaler. The difference is between package deals and individual orders.

    Not sure why it hasn't been mentioned but: http://www.alibaba.com

    Build connections with a factory in China and keep your costs under $2.50 a shirt.
