Hey all, if you catch this, I've been looking into possibly opening up a t-shirt store and I've heard good things but read poor reviews of Society6 and Redbubble.  Was wondering if anyone here had any thoughts on these online sites or ideas on better ones?  I was also thinking of launching with just one shirt on just to see what the demand was like.  Anyone with any know how step up and offer your wisdom to me :P.

I feel like Redbubble or Society6 is more what you would want to start with. We Love Fine as well, they are more of an enter contests and if they like your stuff you can become a regular contributor (for example. Megan Lara has some stuff on there). In fact, I entered the X-Men contest they had a while back, and someone tried to use your work. The community left a large number of comments about how it was your work being stolen etc, so I am sure you already have a demand ;). Maybe think about Tee Fury, the 24 hour thing and how many you sell in that time frame is usually a good indicator. 
There is no fee to open a shop or upload designs. You set the commission at how much you want to make per sale.

I only know of Society6 an Redbubble if you are looking for your own store front kind of thing but if it's just a tee design every now and then like a limited edition sort of thing there's the daily tee design site such as teefury, qwertee, yetee and Shirt Punch.

Look into Teefury too. They get a decent amount of traffic as well as good advertisement.

Zazzle, Wordans, and Cafepress are big sites that get a lot of traffic, much like Redbubble.  Oftentimes the reviews for such sites can be misleading because the few people who have poor experiences are the ones who take the time to write reviews for the site, whereas people who were satisfied with the experience don't tend to write reviews.  Sites like Wordans and Skreened might be closer to what you're looking for, though Teespring sounds like an excellent way to start.
