The Importance of Design

Whether you want to promote your company’s brand or you are looking to draw attention to a cause, a custom designed, screen-printed T-shirt can certainly help you achieve your goal.

However, you really have to make sure you get the design of your T-shirt right. If it’s poorly designed, your message will be lost; or worse yet, it could negatively impact your mission.

Creating a custom screen printed T-shirt can seem like a daunting task, but with the following tips, you can make a killer design.

The Importance of Design – Screen Printing Custom Shirts

Repurpose Graphic Images

Use the creative images that already exist for your custom T-shirt, such as your logo or any well-known illustrations that you use for marketing purposes. Not only is this one of the easiest ways to design your shirt, but it also gives you another medium on which to showcase your marketing imagery that you’ve worked so hard to create.

Get Inspired

If you would prefer create a fresh design, gather inspiration from T-shirt designs, photos, or other graphic images that you really like. Gather a collection of a few images and then assess each one. Determine what drew your attention to each design – the style, the font, the colors, for example. Then, combine the elements together to create a design that’s unique to your cause.

Decide the Layout

There are several layout options available for custom screen printed T-shirts. For example, an image can take up the entire front or back of the shirt, you can have one image on the front and another on the back, or you can use a smaller, “pocket printed” image that’s located on the top right or left side of the shirt. These are just some of the layout options. Think about which layout looks the most appealing and will best help you achieve your goal.
