Just wanted people to share their small business/online stores/shops. I will regularly update OP with new stores from members of KTT. I know yall are some creative people I'm sure at least a few of you own your own business.

In this thread you can discuss anything and everything about your small business. Also, help people who are trying to create their own shops or improve their business. If everyone contributes this can really be a great thread. I encourage everyone to support independent & small businesses. Every little bit helps. Thank you so much for stopping by this thread.

(Not sure if this should be in the Market section, but it's the best board I could think of for this sort of thing)

Below is a list of shops from current KTT members. If you want to add yours to the list just PM me or post in this thread. From time to time I will check it and update OP.

Thank you very much for the info!! :)
Do you know of any place that actually prints your shirt designs and has a store of the like?? I've been trying to take up on the manufacturing part of the tee shirts (at least) but where I'm at it's incredibly pricey. I'm either looking for a service like I mentioned, or a partner in the states or somewhere cheap like that.

Thx a bunch for the info tho :)

There are a few services out there. As for right now I am getting my shirts printed through a company called Bandwagon Merchandise. They have really good quality shirts and affordable prices. I placed my oreder and they ship my order to me.

There is another service that is less of an investment called spreadshirt. basically you send them the design and open and online store with them. When people order the shirts they are printed through spreadshirt. This is good but it also means you won't have a stock of shirts to sell other than online.

Nice OP, hit me up if you want to collab some time on t-shirts or something ;)
Sounds good! I have a very hard time designing shirts. Mostly the shirts are just for my fans to wear to show love and what not, they are not, and I don't claim them to be designs of my own. The Chief Radical t-shirt and my sticker were created by a group of designers based out of Chicago called Midnight Society.

For one of my future shirts I wanted to do something that looked like watercolor or something like this. Do you have any idea how to achieve this effect?

Their prints are really nice plus they have plenty of extra options say if you are opening an apparel company or something like that. My only complaint about them is their customer service is only "okay" but the quality of the shirts are so good that I just keep going back to them. Every other place is far more expensive imo.

Checkout store envy. Absolutely free. No fee's what so ever. You are allowed to sell a variety of goods (look into phones though because I'm not sure but you probably are allowed to sell them.) Only problem is Storenvy works on set prices, not through bidders.

Why exactly did you get kicked off Ebay if you don't mind me asking?

There might be another bid website out there if you really enjoyed Ebay. I just don't know of one :eek:

Yeah I feel ya. I really hate it when legitimate sellers get shut down, while plenty of fakes are out there and allowed to carry on their business. It's very unfortunate. But hey, once you get a new store going I will be more than happy to include it in this thread.
