What is a T-Shirt Design?
A tee shirt design is essentially the creation of an idea that you visualize that you would like to bring to life.
With the design created, you will imprint it onto a T-Shirt or apparels which essentially makes your design come to life!
T-shirts are considered essentials because in this civilised world, every one of us needs to put on a shirt at least!
Why not put one with your creative design on it?
What are some of the ideas you can have for your T-Shirt designs?
1. Text or Slogan Designs
A T-Shirt design can be a simple word text design that has a meaning, or more commonly used, like a slogan.
For example, a one word text design could be just ‘POWER’, or ‘AMAZING’.
A slogan text design could be like, “Don’t Give Up”.
These simple designs are usually printed using Silkscreen Printing, or Embroidery, due to the minimalistic nature of the design.
2. Digital Artwork Designs
Another popular T-Shirt design will be digital artwork such as illustration vectors or complex designs created using popular software like animation.
3. Painting or Photographs Designs
T-Shirt designs could be something a picture that you took using a camera or a painting that you drew.
There are printing methods such as Digital Heat Transfer Printing that allow us to keep the original colors of a painting or picture that can be imprinted onto a T-Shirt.
A unique custom T-Shirt design can allow you to express your creativity.
T-shirt designs are also great advertising tools for your business or company!
These tee designs can also be used as for uniforms at a workplace.
What Makes a Good T-Shirt Design? Tips You Can Follow!
We have seen thousands of T-shirt designs sent to us to be printed onto apparels and products.
There are many great designs and some not so great. What are some of the main factors that can contribute to a great design?
Check out some of the factors you can take note while creating your T-shirt design so you can have the best design ever!
1. Ensure that Image files are high quality
This is one of the most common problems that people face with their T-shirt designs.
The image quality of your artwork can make or break the final outcome.
Images that are of low quality may not be crisp enough and appear pixelated when printed out. Some are so low resolution that we are unable to use it for printing!
We recommend artwork files and images that are at least 300 dpi or higher at full size.
Vector files such as PDF, EPS, AI or SVG file types are great high resolution files at compressed size which means they do not take up too much space!
2. Focus on your Fonts
If your design is focused on words and text, then we recommend for you to choose your font properly.
When printed on T-shirts, how your artwork looks like is just as important as the words you use.
For instance, an angelic and friendly slogan words design may not look so friendly with a hardcore bold font that portrays anger and rage!
Same goes for motivational quotes designs that is created using fonts that are mild and not bold enough.
Therefore, carefully consider the font you are planning to use and how it might affect how the message is being portrayed.
3. Location of Printing your T-Shirt design
The placement of your T-Shirt design on the T-Shirts is important as well.
A common mistake that we see with placement of the design is that it is printed too low from the chest area hence ending up near the ‘belly’ area.
Can you imagine a design that is too far down near your stomach area? That will not look good!
Even too high up near the neck collar can be a problem as your design will not look as nice.
We have a standard chest area measurements for printing designs and we will advise customers accordingly, unless they specifically request the placement.
Now that you are more equipped with knowledge on T-Shirt designs, let’s share with you how you can get started!

We love AI files as they are great to be used when it comes to printing T-Shirt designs.
