Risks and challenges
Once my project is funded, the risk is only in managing the costs of production and shipping. In which case the internet is my friend... I have already received quotes from various print companies, in regards to the cost to manufacture.
The cost will not balloon, as I am the doing the designing (not relying on purchasing designs). I am the one that will build the website (instead of farming that out). The challenge present there, is finding the time and passion to execute, and these tees are something that I am "all in" on.
