HelloCustomerand welcome to just answer

As for the DBA this is only needed if you want to run your business under another name then your personal name. You do need to run an ad in a local paper three times before you can apply for the DBA. This is to inform the public of your intention of using a DBA and in case someone beleives they own the name.

A sellers permit is a good idea in your case, especially if you will be buying T-shirts and other items you plan to sell. With a sellers permit you can buy wholesale and not pay sales tax.

State Business license is required for any type of business. So I would put this one on your priority list. The business license depends on the county you will be conducting your business in.
