PRO-TIPS FOR CREATING BETTER: T-SHIRT DESIGNS
Posted on April 21 2020
Today, we share a little advice for you, your enterprise and your design thinking ideas for creating a great design for t-shirt designs.
Some pro-tips you can consider for t-shirt designing from our side.
1. DETAILING IS THE KING
Keep details as the highlights to your pattern, but keep the simplicity factor high. People must understand your designs easily. Complication leads to mis-judging your idea, which is wrong on this agenda.
2. CHOOSE THE RIGHT COLOURS
Choose complimenting colours to go along with each other. Avoid choosing colours that don’t blend well and stand out separately. Bright colours are good, but too many of them are a big NO!
3. GET EDUCATED
To have a good understanding of anything, you need to study it and understand its context. Tees have come out of every subculture phenomenon that has ever existed, whether it's music, skateboarding, street art, sport or general pop culture.
You need to do good research on the topics, ideas and then go ahead in creating your design.
4. TAKE TIME TO EXPLORE YOUR CONCEPT
A t-shirt’s design isn’t an overnight magic! Sketch your t-shirt design out, create a few variations, do a full brainstorming process for it. But explore other creative options just in case.
The reason we are saying this is people are very choosy in today’s world, it can be an instant hit or not. So, choose and design wisely. The design must be appealing as well as appreciable.
5. IMAGINE THE DESIGN ON A T-SHIRT
Having worked so hard on the designing, you need to imagine how your worked out design looks on the t-shirt. I know the vast difference between design on screen and a printed piece. Don't be afraid to mock up your T-shirt design on a photo of a model. Print it out if necessary and place it on an actual tee. Make sure you see your artwork at actual size.
6. CONSIDER YOUR MARKET - YOUR TARGET AUDIENCE
This is one important agenda. Are you designing for men or women, for the young or the old. It might be a category of people in particular targeting or a general vast choice for everyone. All this must be kept in mind. Like a good brand designer would do, write down the exact person you want to attract to your t-shirt design – who they are, what they like, what other brands that are popularly chosen by them and take it forward from there.
7. KEEP YOUR HUMOUR SUBTLE
If you're going for a humorous t-shirt design, you don't want it coming across as a cheap and low-cost joke shirt. Even the most successful loud and in-your-face designs have subtle humour. Remember this!
8. GOOD QUALITY T-SHIRT SPEAKS VOLUMES
Tie-up with a well-known manufacturer, brand and dealer whose quality of the material for your t-shirt is nice. People notice the quality of the fabric too while picking up a tee.
We at T-SHIRT WHOLESALERS keep utmost care of the quality of the fabric used for the t-shirts. You can choose from a variety of t-shirts, t-shirt designs, patterns for your printing. Choose from brands like Ascolour, Anvil, Gildan, Sportage and CB Clothing for your requirement. We have great offers for bulk orders too.
9. GET A GOOD PRINTING COMPANY TO HELP YOU PRINT
After the designing part is complete, get to a good printing company who’s reputed and whose quality is good because people are keen observers of these things today.
The weight, sizes, labelling options, cost and so on all affect the end product. This takes a while and will require speaking to various companies, but one thing is for certain: deal with a company that wants to treat your tee as an end retail product and will handle your work with care.
10. BE AHEAD OF THE GAME
Be inspired! Learn from the latest trends. Stay original, copying does not lead you too far in success.
