  • Very nice and informative guide. I recently started learning how to design t shirts by following this guide: http://www.coreldraw.com/en/pages/sell-t-shirts/ and thru time I got pretty good at it. Now I am thinking about making a business and earning some money out of my hobby, but I honestly had no idea where to start. I found your article very useful and informative, and I think I am ready to make the first step. Thank you very much!
