Hi there, my name is Gary.
I have been in the t-shirt Industry for the past 30 years, and I am here to share my knowledge and experience with you.
I know that you are looking for some great information about the t-shirt Industry before actually getting into the business.
You may already have a t-shirt business, but you need some inspiration for everything like new designs, marketing, running the business, etc.
Well, in this blog, I have created a list of the “Books that every t-shirt entrepreneur should read”.
Now, all these books provide great information about creativity, selecting designs, making profits, and all the other good things and we can’t forget this one: “Leaders are Readers”.
So, let’s get started!
5 Books That Every T-Shirt Entrepreneur Should Read Before Starting A T-Shirt Business
#Number 5: Thread’s Not Dead, by Jeff Finley
I read this book years ago. But the information provided in this book is still as important as it was back then. This book has two parts; the first one is about being a graphic designer and getting out in the t-shirt industry as a creative designer.
The second part talks about selling t-shirts and how to get started in the t-shirt industry.
Overall, it’s a great book that can help you in getting started. Make sure to read it.
#Number 4: 1000 Garment Graphics: A Comprehensive Collection Of Wearable Designs, by Jeffrey Everett/The T-Shirt: A Collection Of 500 Designs, by Lou Lv & Zhang Huiguang
The no. 4 spot is shared by two books combined, because both of them are similar and deliver some great information for all T-short entrepreneurs.
#4. a) 1000 Garment graphics: A Comprehensive Collection Of Wearable Designs, by Jeffrey Everett
This book is completely phenomenal, and it is all about designs. If you want to get into the t-shirt industry, you have to learn about designs, and it’s great for getting some inspiration.
Now, I am saying that you go straight into it and buy styles, but you will learn about the different ways to do t-shirts with different kind of styles
#4. b) T-Shirt Collection Of 500 Designs, by Louis LV
This is an excellent book, and it’s loaded with all kinds of designs. It’s perfect for the inspiration that moves you to bring life to many of the ideas to get started in the t-shirt industry.
You can get these books, and they will give an insight into the creative part of designing t-shirts.
One great thing about the t-shirt industry is that it’s half business marketing, and half sales. The other half is about being creative and, that you need to maintain balance between the two.
So, these are great books. Also, if you like a design in these books, and it inspires you, then make sure to check out designcrowd.com, and get those designs. They provide very good service, and I use them personally from time to time.

#Number 3: The 4-Hour Workweek, by Timothy Ferris
This one can be a doozy, and it’s not necessarily about the t-shirt industry. But, there’s a lot of information in this book, so you definitely need this.
Since most of you would be selling t-shirts online nowadays, I know that some people sell their t-shirts on the street stores, and that’s great, it can be very profitable as well.
However, most people with a t-shirt line have Shopify stores that run ads and everything.
If you want to know about the online business, hiring people and get ahead in the game, then this book is a must-read for you, and it’s been on the New York Times Bestseller list for years now.
So, if you want to learn everything about the internet and doing business online, then get this book.
#Number 2: Think and Grow Rich/The Science of Getting Rich
Two books share the number two spot because they are very similar. But they will blow your mind.
These are not specifically about the t-shirt industry. However, both of these books are about getting in the right mindset and understanding the universal law of business and money making.
#2. a Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill
I read this book about 27 years ago, and it completely changed my life.
It’s one of the most popular books in the world. Make sure you read this as well.
#2. b The Science of Getting Rich, by Wallace D.Wattles.
This is the book that inspired Napoleon Hill. It is a short book and an easy read, but this will blow your mind about the science of money and the universe. Also, you can listen to its audiobook on YouTube.
#Number 1: Start a T-shirt Business Or Die Trying by Gary Ajene
The number one book on this is list is (*Drumroll, please!!*) “Start A T-shirt Business Or Die Trying by Gary Ajene.” And that’s me!
Now, if you have not read this book until now, then I recommend this to you. And I am not saying this because it’s my book. It’s because I have provided so much information to help you and your T-shirt business.
I have been in this industry for close to 30 years in total.
I have put my knowledge and experience into this, including history, changing your life, starting in the business.
I have also included links to get things done, and it’s a resource and a complete guide in which I take you step by step through the process to start your own t-shirt business.
