There are probably thousands of these posts but I'm trying to start a company and I can't afford to get it wrong straight off the bat.
I have been trying to start a t-shirt/sportswear company. My friend said that I should look into designing jerseys as it's a higher-ticket item and I have plenty of designs for shirts. I have a reliable supplier that can ship high-quality, sublimated shirts and thus what I need is a custom kit designer.
However, I find some designer products restrictive or overly-expensive, such as 3D Kit Designer, and I simply don't have the cash to build a new system from scratch. I was very impressed with the Uparel compression sleeve site, it's along the lines of what I'm looking for. Essentially, to compete with the opposition, I need to mimick or better this sort of kit designer or perhaps a 3D Kit Designer site like this one.
Anyway, in the experience of those here, is this possible? I am no dummy, I'm computer-literate, decent designer and know my way around.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am trying to come up with a new life direction after redundancy from my IT job.
