Teepublic (www.teepublic.com) was founded in 2013 as a community by the people behind BustedTees. It was created to help designers to have their designs printed with ease and not having to worry about manufacturing, shipping and pricing of their products. Allowing designers to easily create their own shop in shop without having to worry about setting up a website of their own.
Teepublic has several thousand designs listed at any given time. This is thanks to designers deciding how long they want to offer a design. Designs due cover pretty much all aspects of pop culture from TV, movie, anime & manga to literature and also just plain funny designs without any pop culture references are available. To help shoppers navigate this vast selection, shirts are being categories in a couple of rather generic categories that still do return hundreds of prints. You may want to rely on their site search when you want to hunt down a print of a certain movie or show.
