You may find that this is a highly competitive field with lots of people who had the same idea, I recall reading from someone who had setup a site to promote his original shirt line and was still waiting to make his first sale for the $1000 investment.
Take an hour to research the number of t-shirt sites already on the web.
A Google search for: inurl:"t-shirt" , finds 38 million pages discussing them.
There are now a number of print on demand sites that can affix your artwork to a number of objects, including shirts, you can setup a 'store' on these sites without having to invest in any inventory. Cafepress.com, Zazzle.com, spreadshirt.com and Customink.com prices come out on e high side but might be a way to get your feet wet before committing to any big investments.
If you go your own way a Google search for T-shirt Drop Shipper might bring up an ad for a printing service costing $6 a shirt or less. imagemarket.com recently had them for $4.95.
Higher end printers that ofer special features including expanded print areas include:
Many of the shirt sites have an affiliate program paying around 15% for bring in a sale.
In fact! Electronic business is very famous and prevails all around the world. I think that this time is very good for that type of business. If you have good products and good skills then definitely online boutique business will prove to be good in 2013.
