    Hey guys, so I want to start printing some shirts with my company logo but as of right now I haven't trademarked the name etc etc. because of funding issues. I want to make a website/print samples/ get a photoshoot together for a lookbook but like i said I dont have sufficient funds. How would I go about finding somebody to invest in my project? thank you all. :)

    I don't REALLY know, but you could start with Kickstarter.com or gofundme.com. These types of sites seem to have worked for a few enterprising people out there....have your business plan ready if you want serious investors!

    Raising money isn't easy. Especially if it's for a clothing line because there's nothing really original about it. I'd say the best idea is to to friends and family. You may want to research your local area and see if there are angel investors who might be interested.

    Presumably the apparel will be a bit more original than just CafePress t-shirts, hoodies and baseball caps?
