Three Things To Consider When Designing Custom T-Shirts

Posted on

Getting custom T-shirts printed is a great way to spread awareness of a cause or promote your business, whether you are making shirts for employees or for your supporters to buy. However, there are a few things you need to take into account when creating a custom T-shirt.

Decide What Shirts You Want

The first thing you will need to decide is what type of t-shirts you want. There are lots of different online custom T-shirt printing sites, but they will not all have the same range of cuts and options. Think carefully about what you want the neckline to look like, whether you want a little pocket (useful for work shirts!), and how long the sleeves need to be, then find a store that offers that cut. You should also decide if you want any other items, such as hoodies, at this point. Decide what your ideal shirts look like, and there will be a company that can bring it to life.

Think About The Design

Next, you need to choose what you want the shirts to look like. The company will be able to help you with this, but you need to choose your wording. Don't try to pack too much text onto the shirt, as it will be hard to read. Choosing text really depends on what the aim of your shirts is — you might want a short slogan, or you may want full contact details. You should then choose where on the shirt you want the text or images to be. You will also need to choose a font that can be read from a distance. If you aren't sure what font to choose, choose one of the easiest-to-read fonts, such as Open Sans and Bookerly, that will make your shirts look clear and readable.

Choose A Colour Palette

Choosing a colour palette for shirts can be difficult. A black or white shirt will offer an understated look that people will be happy to wear, but it might not stand out as much. A bright orange shirt may stand out from the crowd, but many people might not like wearing it. You may already have a colour scheme from your company's logo or other promotional materials. However, you need to choose colours that contrast enough for the text to be read — consider colours from opposite sides of the colour wheel for the best contrast, such as red and blue. If you aren't sure about colours, ask the custom T-shirt printing company you are working with for their advice.

If you choose the types of T-shirts and hoodies you want, create a good design that conveys all the information you need, and pick a colour scheme that suits your business, you can get the most out of designing and printing T-shirts. Contact a custom T-shirt printing service for more information.
