I have been pulling my hair out to think about free marketing/low cost marketing ideas for a while. I have been posting my site to forums, directories, related blogs, and yahoo answers. (not in a spamming way. Everybody hates spammers) So whats next?I just opened my Cafepress shop selling T shirts, mugs, and bags with my store logo and some really nice ancient wood block press prints. Most of the items have no markup or very low (a dollar). First I am going to get all my friends buy a T shirt. Then I can market the cafepress shop itself. I am hoping this will create some word of mouth marketing when people are walking around in the T shirts. I just started the shop, so I will see how effective this is and report back. If you are interested in open your cafepress shop to promote your business, you can sign up hereDon`t forget to put "galleriapangea" as your referer if you do sign up. Thanks!

Good luck to you! You may want to also find shops in your local area that you can place your items in under consignment.
I understand about the marketing aspect of having the T-Shirts and not wanting to make money from them. The consignment aspect I was referring too was with the items within Galleria Pangea. I hope this helps and good luck!
I actually do a lot of t-shirt marketing related business myself being a screen printer. And I think your designs might be a little too complicated, resulting in a high price. The most effective marketing t-shirts I have done are the one generally with a creative and memorable design (usually single colored) on a bright t-shirt. That way the price is usually just around 5 dollars per shirt and you can reach out to more customers.
Some business I worked with in the past actually handed out their shirts and contact information for free with orders.
Just some ideas there, message me if you need any additional help.
them to TV hosts, sports people etc.... Send them not as a "promotion", but
as a gift from your business to them.
We have used this kind of method very successfully in the past, finding that
some people shy away from it if they feel you want them to promote it, but
hey, everyone loves to get a gift!
