A blank T-shirt is a lot like a blank canvas. You can do anything in that space, explore it all out. Designing your own t-shirt can be a fun, creative, and may even bring you some money if you decide to sell your designs.
The fundamentals of t-shirt design remain the same; it’s what you do with them that count.

- Nail down your message
To create your own custom design, the basic thing you need to keep in mind is that conveying your message is important. The very first stage of your design is your foundation which is laying out your quote and message.
- Choose a printing style
The printing method you choose can have a great impact on the design itself. For example, using screen print will limit your design to vector based art which means fewer yet brighter images while Direct to Garment allows unlimited images.
- Choose an image, photo or graphic
Your choice of image or graphic must go with the message you are trying to show. It can be funny, serious, abstract or original.
- Choose a font
Fonts can significantly enhance your t-shirt design. Larger, bold or block works great for the main heading, while the smaller fonts are usually for a tagline. Avoid anything overly complicated or difficult to read.
- Choose your preferred t-shirt colour and size
You are supposed to choose your colour palette very wisely. Make sure nothing blends into or clashes with your design. Solid colours work best. Do some experiment and playing around with some colours.
- Choose a printing company
What good is a great design if you don’t finish it with a high-quality t-shirt to showcase it? Last but not the least you need to choose a printing company that can meet your expectations and deliver the tee with best quality and at the right time without any delay in the process.
In no time, you made your own custom t-shirt from start to finish. All you need to do is show off your work.
