T-shirt Outlet

Shop URL: www.tshirtoutlet.com/

How long have you been selling?
Since 1996. 15 years.

Give us an overview of your shop. What kind of merchandise, style, theme, etc.
Primarily a humor driven t-shirt site. So, mainly funny t-shirt. We sell into the wholesale novelty market as well. Many of our designs can be seen in catalog companies and “brick and mortar” stores around the country. We also sell licensed designs, mainly entertainment. All of our designs come from our parent wholesale company.

How did you get started?
We started as a wholesale company in 1990 during the t-shirt gold rush days. It just made sense to launch an online store. Back in the late 90′s I was building, developing product, and managing online stores for illustrators/animators like Camp Chaos, Romp.com, Angry Little Girls, and Joecartoon.com (that’s old school, I’m guessing most of your readers don’t know who they are.).

Geeky Generation is a fresh independent, environmentally conscious clothing brand founded in 2011, based in London UK. The designs are limited and will only be printed once. This will assure people retain their individuality and confidence in their own unique way.

Currently Geeky Generation is trading only online but aims to expand and open their first retail outlet starting in London.

How did you get started?
During College days and University, Goranka always had thoughts in her mind about having her own business. Something which she can make decisions over and create things which not only herself but others would love. After months of thinking what she could do, she came up with an idea of creating T-Shirts!

After her honeymoon she finally decided to register her company and start focusing of the business idea which has been running in her head for years.

6 months after reading, designing, learning and not sleeping, Geeky Generation was born and was officially open for business.

We sell funny and sometimes offensive shirts. We have more options available for customization than anyone else online. We have over 600 designs and sell them in over 10 colors and 10 styles in sizes small-5XL.

How did you get started?
After kicking around many different online business ideas we settled on funny t-shirts. We felt it was a good fit for us as a group because most of us had online experience with humor video sites. So funny t-shirts was just another avenue to express ourselves.

Limited edition designer Tee shirts sold solely over the web.We came up with the idea of only doing limited runs of shirt designs rather than the mass produced normal stuff and to make it all a bit different.
We only print 250 of any design, indivdually numbered. Also the designer gets the chance of earning some cash for their trouble. Up to $1,000.00 nzd

How did you get started?
Vinnie started the ball rolling a year ago, he’s really pasionate about design and also a bit keen on his fashion as well. Then I rolled up with the boring stuff like company stuff and bank accounts blah blah, was also really keen on the idea being a designer myself it all just seemed to fit. Then Robby decided he didn’t have a hole lot going on at the time, thought the idea was awsome, loves a good Tee and before you now it we had a pretty good plan and the rest is history.
