I'm opening a second Etsy store and I want to sell a couple of tee shirts designs.  Unfortunately, I don't have the capabilities to screenprint my own shirts and I don't want to do iron-ons.  What I'd really like is to be able to have shirts printed in very small batches so I'm not stuck with a billion shirts that never sell and I don't have to pay a lot at the outset.  Ideally, I'd like to have them printed as they are ordered, but I have no idea if that's a thing people do.  I've looked at Spreadshirts, but their tax setup seems complicated.  Your experiences?  Advice?

Why not open up a Spreadshirt shop instead and sell the shop rather than the shirts? You can also open up a Zazzle store and there's a couple more one-off printer/sellers out there as well (forget Cafepress - you'll make about 2 cents per shirt over there). It's actually easier selling your shirts that way and you don't have to pay shop fees, worry about styles or sizes or spend money on supplies. Just do your marketing and post your links up at all the free promotion sites people advertise via their respective forums. All you need to do is the design part.

I havenn't tried them, but after some research I am thinking about giving customink.com a try.  Their prices seem reasonable.
