- Take your time to create the best t-shirt design
Getting to the top with good design doesn’t just happen. Even the best designers in the world need to always take their time to carry out their creations. When you are creating a design for t-shirts, you must make sure that you like it and the only way is having taken your time to be able to do it with peace of mind, and seeing that everything is as perfect as possible.
A good idea is to have your idea in constant development. That is, when you have the design ready and you think it’s finished, take one last look at it and check it out with your pillow. The next day go back to your design and apply all the changes you think you need to improve it and check them again with the pillow.
The moment you don’t need to make any more changes will be when you have created something that you can be proud of.
- Place your design on a t-shirt: Create a preview
At Embroidered Clubwear, we create a preview, mock-up so that our clients can see how their design will look before it is printed.
It will be easier for you if you make a montage on a T-shirt, to know if that was really what you wanted and it will be as you imagined.
On the Internet you can find a multitude of mock-ups to get an idea of how your design will look on the shirt, or to help you decide how you want to position it.
In this other article we explain how to design a t-shirt using Photoshop.
Another very effective technique is to print your design at the size you want and place it on a t-shirt. This way you can get an idea of the actual dimensions of your design, and how it will be in proportion to the custom printed shirt.
- Less is more in t-shirt design
We all know how to appreciate Fine Arts, the skill in drawing and images with great detail. And at Embroidered Clubwear, as lovers of good t-shirt designs, we like images that make your jaw drop or make you turn your head in the middle of the street to see that design in detail.
An impressive design is important, however, remember that the best and most effective designs in history have always been the simplest. If you are looking to create a t-shirt with a slogan or to promote your brand, always remember that less is more, and in many cases the message will be clearer and easier for the viewer to remember.
- Know your audience
One of the first questions you should ask yourself when designing t-shirts is, what audience is it aimed at? For men or women? How old will the target audience be?
If you want to make a product for people to wear, you should know how to define what profile these people have and design depending on them.
So before getting down to work designing this shirt, first think about who your product is aimed at and look for inspiration or some guidelines to follow in brands that have a style similar to the one you want to create. It does not matter what your tastes are, but the tastes of the people the t-shirt design is aimed at.
- Don’t be offensive
If you are thinking of adding a bit of humor to your design, try not to make offensive or harsh messages. The designers of this type of products always try to make striking designs but keeping the key of humor in a respectful tone.
In the same way, if you want to create a product with a political or religious message for those who share the same ideas, keep in mind that not everyone will have the same opinion or religious beliefs, so we must remain respectful in what we say.
- The key to t-shirt design: Color, color, color
Creating a t-shirt is not making a design and that’s it. You will also need to take into account what color of shirt you want to make this design on. We recommend looking for a complementary color or a second t-shirt color option to reproduce your design in two versions.
White or ecru shirts are usually cheaper but also stand out less. The color you end up using will depend on your budget and the needs of your project. You can take a look at our t-shirt printing catalog to decide on the color and model of the same. We have all the colors on the market!
If you are creating a design that has a lot of black, don’t wear a black t-shirt. The colors will not stand out on the garment, and that is what we are least interested in. Keep in mind, that your design should stand out on the shirt so that the viewer can see it clearly.
With Embroidered Clubwear you can promote the identity of your group, make a statement and look fresh and stylish for any type of event. We offer our custom-made clothes in Melbourne, made with rigorous quality so comfort and style will both be present in the final work.
