Tips to design your own t-shirts

The internet has come of age, and after the raft of online stores selling designer merchandise many forward thinking companies such as Spreadshirt are now letting visitors design, upload and buy their very own t-shirt designs!

This is ultimately cool for many reasons - you might be an arty person who wants to create your own look, or you might be a small business wanting to give away free t-shirts with your logo and branding on it. Whatever the reason, there are plenty of online resources for designing your own t-shirts, here are some things to keep in mind before you get started.

Ensure you choose the right DPI

Anything that is designed for print must be designed with a dot per inch value of around 300. Photoshop defaults to 72dpi which is fine for screen, but not for print. Make sure you set this right before you begin!

Get the size right

In truth there is no right or wrong answer here, but you can get size guides from your t-shirt printer (the service provider). Obviously these will vary depending on the design itself and where it is placed on the t-shirt. Ensure you are following correct guidelines before wasting hours designing something that will not fit!

Also, an additional no-brainer tip - if you are buying the t-shirt for yourself, make sure you get the right size.

Be creative or controversial

If you're going to design your own stuff, you might as well put some effort into it. Spend a lot of time creating something that will look brilliant, and really get people talking. If you get it right, you might even be able to sell on your designs to others! Which brings me nicely to...

Sell your artwork

Along with being able to design and print your own tees, a lot of providers allow you to open your own stores for free where you can sell your designs. This is great if you have a large circle of friends, especially those who can spread the word for you. With the likes of Facebook and Twitter you can really get the ball rolling and actually make an additional stream of income from designing t-shirts.

Be topical

Why not design t-shirt prints that suit the seasons, or occasions? This is a great idea for birthdays, Halloween, Christmas and other events. You can even devote your design to something a little more conservative, like national campaigns or perhaps global crises.

Don't be a thief!

So we've spoken about what you can do with t-shirt design, now let's talk about what you should not do. T-shirt designers, and designer labels, put a lot of resources into their product so it's not advisable that you copy their ideas! You might be able to get away with designing something similar for yourself, but selling it on may result in legal action, you have been warned!

Have fun

OK that's the heavy stuff out of the way, and with the other tips provided here you should be able to create your own designs with relative ease. The point of all this however is to have fun doing it - start by doing it for yourself and not thinking about selling and you will love every moment.
