    "You can promote your art, your ideas, your business. You need to take a t-shirt and make them a walking billboard for your brand. You do not need any expensive tools, you need Printful. They take Paypal, to make ordering even eaiser. Many colors and designs available, this product is for you! School programs would be great as well, or clubs. I could see a family reunion or a wedding. Custom t-shirts are another way to add to the fun. "

    "I was looking for a custom TShirt printing company when I came across Zazzle. Their shirts are much higher quality than other custom shirt companies that I've seen. They offer competitive prices on them, and their design process is simple. It was easy to create the shirt I wanted. It's really nice that they don't have a minimum quantity either, a lot of these companies want you to buy tons of their shirts. I am glad that I chose Zazzle for printing my shirts. "

    "I really liked the merchant website identified, and the products and services offered seemed creative, of good quality, and reasonably priced. However, competition in the retail custom t-shirt clothing industry is extremely competitive. I would have liked to see more in the way of competitive comparison(s), or the presentation of example featured products or product/service attributes and characteristics that lent themselves to the selection of this particular merchant as the best in class for this solution."

    "This is a good option, but I really don't want to have to set up my own shopify store. Also they do more than just t-shirts, so it's not their specialized focus. This makes me worry about the quality of the shirts as they are doing mugs and other things as well."

Ordering was easy and, since they don't have minimum orders, I was able to add on an additional small order when I realize I hadn't requested enough. The process was simple and I was pleased with the final product."

    "When you do a simple google search related to selling custom T-shirts online you get a plethora on choices and so for me I wanted a website that would really stand out and really take my sales to the next level. I wanted something that added a uniqueness to my brand and allowed me to tailor things my way and present things to the customer the way I wanted and the way I envisioned. When I came across Teelunch I knew I had found a unique website that made things easy for me. Not only could I expand my business with Shopify, but I could also place my design on a whole bunch of other products that Teelunch offered giving my clients a wider choice of options. Teelunch helps you print on demand so you never have to worry about inventory issues again which is also a nice touch."

    "Lucidpress is more for other types of printed materials. It's a great service for brochures, letters, invitations and such but not for T-shirts. And it does nothing to help you sell your T-shirts. It also has monthly membership fee if you are to keep using the service. There are cheaper and more specialized services for T-shirts and other business materials, not printed "paper" materials. I think even Vistapoints would be a better solution."
