If you want to make awesome, cheap custom tee shirts, you’re going to need three ingredients. Here they are.
The Actual Shirt.
If you’re going to make awesome custom tees, you’re going to need some awesome tee shirts. That much should be obvious. Although you may think the cheaper shirt materials are more preferable, you ultimately get what you spend. Cheaper custom tees feel cheap, wear out quickly, and don’t look quite as nice. Better quality shirts are more comfortable, last far longer, and look great.
Checking the ink of a shirt printing service may seem pedantic, but it’s absolutely necessary. If you want to make awesome custom tees, you’re going to need to work with a screen printer who only uses top quality inks. Cheap inks fade in the sunlight, and eventually peel or wash out in washing machines. Using high quality ink on your custom tees ensures that they’ll look great forever.
Last but not least, you also need to consider the artwork of your custom tees. Great quality shirts will ensure that people continue wearing them, but great quality artwork will ensure that they’ll want to wear them in the first place. If you have a simple design in mind, then find a shirt printer that offers an online design lab. If it’s a bit more complicated and requires custom artwork, hire a freelance graphic designer. The art they give you will be well worth the money.
If you add these three ingredients together, you’ll make some pretty impressive, cheap custom tees. Basically, if you want people to wear the shirts you’ve so lovingly designed, you need to lovingly design shirts that people will want to wear.
