    Heyyo,
    Decided to open up my own t-shirt shop, buuutttt.... I can't think of a good name. Any ideas? I want something decently creative. My name is Austin, my portfolio is Artstin. Dunno if that may inspire something, but it definitely does not have to be related to that.

    any suggestions?

    thankss!

    I like milnterialistic


    Not bad. Simple and nice.


    Material Masterpiece is nice. Yeah, they will be a bit expensive to print. I'll end up reducing colors on some of them, but say like the mona lisa one I'll have to print with a Direct-to-Garment printer


    I like those very much.

    lol don't use one of these sh*tty clever "creative" names. Just call your shop what you do.

    Give us some decent information.

    Who is your target audience?
    Is it an online shop or will it have a physical store?
    What type of prints will you be offering?
    What is your intended forms of advertising and/or marketing channels? (if you're foolishly planning on relying on word of mouth you want something really simple and straight forward like Hot Tees or Inked Apparel)
    What do you plan on charging, and what kind of range do you expect to have?

    I don't know what experience you have in printing/marketing/running a business, but if these aren't all things you've already worked out, forget about the name and get your homework done. It's one motherf*cking saturated market out there and if you wanna generate interest you need a solid business plan.
