Tips On Designing Your Own T Shirt


Designing your own T shirt can be a lot of fun, but it may be a little overwhelming if you have never done it before. To help make the process run a little more smoothly, this article contains a few tips to point you in the right direction as you get started.

The very first thing you are going to want to decide is the color of the T shirt itself. You should also know that the cost of the T shirts may also be affected by this choice. With many companies it is much cheaper to have white T shirts made than any other color. Besides the cost though, another thing you may want to consider is what color you’d like the T shirt design. For example, if you would like the silk screen design done in white (which could help the design pop more), you should pick a dark colored T shirt. The reverse is also true. If you already know you’d like the design done in a bright or dark color, white or a very pale color may be your best option.


Once you have decided on the color of the shirt itself it is time to start the design process. If you are working on a T shirt design for a particular cause or event you need to consider the font of the lettering you want to use. A band name or something of that sort may be able to get use fancier font with more success than say a company or website would. Think about whether you are going for design appeal or readability. Advertisements and things of that sort are usually best done with a simpler font. It can be hard enough to read a moving target, let alone if you are trying to decipher an extremely frilly word font.


Another thing to remember about creating a T shirt design is the design or graphic itself. The more you are trying to fit onto the T shirt the more simple all of its components will need to be. If you are using words and graphics, keep in mind that less is usually more. For a shirt only containing a graphical design or picture however, you may have a little more freedom.


Next you should take some time thinking about the design placement on the shirt. You might be able to get more visual clarity on a T shirt design that is placed on the back of the shirt, than on the front. If you want to place the design on the front however you need to consider whether these shirts are going to be worn by men or women. Though it might sound silly, remember that the shirt (and design on it) will hang differently on a male body than it will on a woman’s. Some designs may look awkward or very difficult to see when hung over a woman’s curves.
