But let’s face it. If your t-shirt doesn’t look great, it’s probably going to end up in a closet gathering dust. And that won’t do anybody any good.
This article will provide tips for getting a great t-shirt design that will get your brand noticed.
Start with the Right Fit
It’s essential that your t-shirts fit well. You want them to be true to size and you want to offer a variety of sizes to customers ranging from XS to XXXL. This will ensure that everyone can find one they feel comfortable and look great in.
Keep the Design Simple
You want your t-shirts to sell your brand. While a standout design is great, avoid anything too busy. If your design has a lot going on, it will distract from the logo and other elements that advertise what you’re about.
Make it Stylish
Style is important as well. This comes through in the design you are using and the cut of the tee. For example, vintage is very in right now, so if you use a vintage design, people may want to wear your shirts even more. When it comes to style, consider integrating various cuts including baby doll tees, button fronts and more.
Think About the Color Scheme
Color will factor heavily in your design. Your logo may be pre-designed with colors that best represent your brand. Make sure you are putting the logo on a shirt the features a color that complements it well. Consider offering a variety of colors to give people more options.
A Good Fabric Goes a Long Way
Who doesn’t love wearing a nice comfortable fabric against their skin? The fabric of your shirts should be soft and high quality, so they don’t shrink when they’re washed.
A Vibrant Design
The design you use should have a nice rich color that doesn’t fade after a turn in the washing machine and dryer.
Consider Borders and Edges
When it comes to borders and edges, you can go with a design that has a definite or indefinite border, or you can go for a free-flowing look. Free flowing is a more in line with today’s fashions.
Where Will the Design Be Placed?
The design can be placed anywhere on the shirt including the front, back, front pocket, sleeve, top of the back and more. Any of these are fine, but the idea is to go for balance. For example, if you have a small logo on the sleeve or front pocket of the shirt, complement it with a larger design on the back.
