Custom team t shirts

If you need to create custom apparel for your team, you can honestly just have the team’s name written in puffy paint on the front or back, but honestly, if you’re going to design some custom team apparel, you should put some thought into it.

That being said, you probably don’t know the first thing about making personalized apparel, which is okay. You just need to know a few design basics.

Choosing a shirt color. – First things first, you need to pick your shirts. What color, style, and brand do you think you should get to make your custom team apparel with? When it comes to choosing a color, it’s best to go with something classic. After all, these are custom team shirts. They serve a function, and you don’t want to detract from that. Black, red, blue, navy, and green are all great choices. You should also consider the possibility of getting baseball shirts, or perhaps another style to help your custom team apparel stand out.

Choosing an ink color. – Now that you’ve picked a color for your custom team shirts, you need to pick an ink color. It should also be noted that you should have your shirts professional screen-printed. It doesn’t cost a lot and it’s well worth what it does. If your shirts are black, white ink works well, as does any other color, really. Just make sure it’s not too dark. If it’s not black, then consider choosing either the complementary color, or another warm color (if the shirt is a warm color) or a cool color (if the shirt is a cool color). These pairing are surefire ways to get it right.

Choosing a design. – Most screen-printers have entire libraries of pre-made designs that you can mix and match to come up with great looking custom team apparel. Although you can get elaborate, it’s a good idea to keep it simple. Put a quality graphic on the front chest along with the team’s name in the same color, or put a small version on the breast and a larger version on the back.

Design custom apparel isn’t hard if you know a little bit about what you’re doing. If you have any questions, feel free to share in the comments.
