About Us

Clothingline101.com is a collaborative project where people in the apparel industry can share their wisdom and expertise with those trying to strike out on their own to start an independent apparel line.

It started as a small group of screen printers but quickly branched out to include a whole community of online graphic design and printing resources. There are a lot of resources out there for people trying to start an apparel line, and this blog discusses and evaluates those resources in detail, but this is the only place you can go to find advice from those with highly varied experiences in the apparel industry.

When it comes to the things you need to know in order to start an apparel line, one size does not fit all; there is not single method that guarantees success. This blog is not intended to provide a step-by-step to success. It is intended to be though-provoking and anecdotal so you are prepared to make the decisions that are appropriate to  you in your unique circumstance.

This is an online community where people can go to both find advice and resources, so please help us build by providing feedback and comments. We are especially interested in hearing from people that bring differing perspectives and attitudes. Don’t be afraid to disagree with a point in an article and provide evidence to support your view. A healthy amount of disagreement is valuable because it demonstrates our belief that there are many paths to success. On this blog we will explore a high diversity of paths that have been charted, but in the end you will have to use that advice to chart your own path.

We’d love to hear from anyone with a story about their experience. Whether you have advice or just want to ask a question, let us know by leaving comments or contacting us to have a featured article. To have a featured article on the blog, just shoot me an email with the content at info@j6designs.com and put clothingline101 in the subject line.

    Fantastic blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or
    go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m completely confused .. Any recommendations? Kudos!
