Tips for a Better T-Shirt Design

If you're worried about how your design will come out, follow the tips in this article to ensure that your custom t-shirt print turns out exactly as you wanted.


Color is an extremely important factor to consider when designing a shirt. This not only means picking colors for the design, but also ensuring that these colors complement the colors of the shirt itself. If your design uses a lot of colors, it will usually come out clearer on lighter shirts rather than darker. Likewise, designs that utilize solid colors are generally cheaper and come out better than designs with shaded colors or gradients.

Picture Quality

You may have already had photos or images prepared for your shirt design. Make sure these are high resolution images that are at least 300dpi to ensure that they will not become pixelated when expanded to fit across a shirt.

Shirt Style

How and when you plan on wearing your shirt could affect the type of custom design you decide to put on it. Our most popular styles are our tee shirts, but we also offer fleece, hoodies, sweatpants, and athleticwear. There's even variety when it comes to cotton.

With these few tips, hopefully you feel a bit more comfortable designing your own shirt to print.
