You need a laptop to process your online transactions, to make designs if you are planning to make your own design and to print you t-shirts if you are planning to use a DTG (direct to garment) printer.
Today it is very easy to create a website. There are a lot of free website providers on the Internet. You just go there and pick a free template. You can design it on your own and have a professional do it for you if you want your website to look more professional.

Some t-shirt suppliers give you the option to send them your designs, and they can ship the shirts to you with the design already on. In this case, all you will have to do is to sell the finished product without having to worry about their customization.
To reduce the cost, you can buy a heat press and transfer papers, so you can yourself put the design on the t-shirts.
You can also buy a DTG (direct to garment) printer and you can directly print your designs on your t-shirts without having to use transfer papers.
