Printing clothing is a great way to create a personalized look for yourself or for your staff if you run a business. This way you can look more unique and professional, and at the same time, you will be able to wear something that serves a purpose and that no one else in the world has an exact copy of.
There are many sites that allow you to make your own printed t-shirts and other clothing, and the way most of these works is that you simply order as many t-shirts as you want once you’ve created your image – meaning there are no real overheads.
Services To Grow Your Own Business
Still, as useful as these services might be, the quality of your final image is really down to you. Here then we will look at some tips to make sure that your printed t-shirts look great and that you don’t make any serious errors.
Ensure the Definition is High
If you want your printed t-shirts to look good then you need to make sure that you use a high definition image. Otherwise, you will find that your t-shirts look blurry and hard to make out when the image is spread out and this will make them look low quality. To be on the safe side make your images huge and then just scale them down as needed.
Make Sure They’re Central
You will also need to place your image where you want it on the clothing. For t-shirts and embroidered hats and most other clothing for that matter, you will want this to be the centermost likely. Make sure then that you accomplish this by carefully lining up the image on either side and making sure it’s straight. This is even more important if you have multiple images. Like a crooked painting, this can otherwise be very annoying to look at.
Ensure You Have the Rights
If you don’t have the rights to the image you want on your t-shirt that’s fine – but make sure that you aren’t going to be selling it or using it to promote your business. If you want to make an Optimus Prime t-shirt for yourself go ahead, but sell them on eBay and you’ll be in a lot of trouble.
Make Them Large
A big mistake when people make their own custom t-shirts is often to use just a single very small image in the center of a large space. This can make the image look ‘lost’ or as though it’s floating, so make sure that you have one that is big enough to fill up space so that it’s more eye-catching on the t-shirt.
Think About Colours
When you order your t-shirt you will be able to order it in any color, but in order for this to look good, you need to make sure that the image you want on it matches the color that you have as the background. Think about color schemes and make sure that you don’t just slap any picture in any color.
