Where to start/what to plan to open a small side business?

I'd like to start a small side business, myself only as a part-timer to start. The essence of the business is for me to design and print small 3D charms. I can start using a 3D printing service like Shapeways or i.materialize and already use free tools to do 3D design work so it seems like startup costs are low. I'm looking for what I should do to prepare for the long term. [more inside]

What is the best way for a digital artist to sell prints online?

I run a little, very informal art project on a tumblr blog which has gotten somewhat popular. Recently people have been asking if they can buy prints. I don't have any prints for sale right now, and don't know much about how to set up an online store, or if there's some other method that digital artists find convenient. Would anyone be able to point me in the right direction with this? [more inside]

Can you help me buy this Japanese tee for my husband's birthday?

My husband really likes this t shirt and his birthday is in a few weeks. Problem: website is in Kanji (I think-?) and I can't see the 'Happy Birthday' one anywhere. It it can't be found online, do you know if the site has an actual physical shop anywhere? I have friends in Tokyo/Kyoto who might be able to send it over if it's available. HALP (and thank you!)

Need an online store that allows fax and phone orders only.

I am looking for a turnkey solution, like shopify, that would allow me to make an online store with about 15 - 20 products. The catch is that for the immediate future I only will be selling items via phone or fax. So for now I guess it's really more of an online catalog, but I would like to use a solution that will allow me in the future to easily add web checkout and shopping cart. Any ideas? [more inside]

What are the realities of running a small online business while working a full-time job at the same time? I've got a fairly well-developed concept for an online store that would market, sell, and ship a physical product, but I also work a full-time "real" job. Mrs. WebHund would not be pleased if pipe dream interfered with real job that is paying the mortgage off. So I need a little more "here's how I do it" information. [more inside]

Creating high quality custom T-shirts

I want to create a few custom T-shirts (1) where my image covers the entire shirt, not just a small rectangular area on the front or back, and (2) that are fitted, not those loose nerdy things, and (3) online. Accurate colour reproduction is fairly important. Is there an online store รก la CafePress that lets me do this?
