If you have taken an interest into fashion, especially one that is unique to you, read this article and figure out how you can make you own shirts and what you will need to really show your style.
The first decision you will have to make is, what kind t-shirt you want to design. Keep in mind when making this decision that the quality of the shirt will affect how the design comes out in the end. After you have chosen the shirt, you will need to gather the following supplies: a computer, an inkjet printer, quality transfer paper, an iron and of course the shirt you shoes to design.
Like stated above, the quality of the shirt effects the outcome, same goes for the printer and paper. Transfer paper comes in many different types so you should pick the quality that is right for you.
If you have never done this before or maybe are not the most computer savvy, you should consider using a design software to help you create the design. There are many to choose from, choose the one that is best for you.
Once the software is ready, you can begin designing your logo. If you have not already decided on a logo, that’s okay, there are many programs online that allow you to create a logo for free. Once you have done so, simply save it to your computer and then place it in the program.
The next step is printing. However, and this is a very important step, before you press print, be sure to mirror your image. If you forget to do this the image will print out backwards. Next, make sure the paper is loaded correctly and make any changes to the settings that you may have to. Now you may print.
Once your logo is printed you are ready to apply it to the shirt. Plug in the iron and let it get hot. Make sure no water or steam is applied to the paper as it will ruin the design. Before placing the iron on the paper, read the directions because each paper requires you to heat it for a select amount of time.
You’ve done it, you have just created you very own logo tee!
If this didn’t work for you or you simply do not have the time to put into it, there are places everywhere that offer t-shirt printing. If you decide to go this route make sure you consider your options so you can assure the best results.
Most companies allow you to submit your own ideas. These businesses also have experienced artists on staff so they are able to make a more elaborate design than you may have been able to on the software on your own. If you are not creative, ask for help, let them know what you have in mind and they will draw it up.
Whether you decide to make the shirt your own or use an outside company, you will end up with your very own unique logo tee. How cool would it be to tell others that the shirt they all love was something you made all on your own? Give it a shot you never know!
