Some people choose to show their individuality through a hair cut, or having it dyed a funky colour, through a tattoo or a piercing, but have you ever considered something a little less drastic, less permanent…have you ever consider a customised t-shirt?! Of course, there have been lots of fashion conscious people doing this for years and forging brands out of it, but with the developments in digital technology and the online revolution, customising a t-shirt with a professional finish, is now relatively in expensive and so easy to do.
If you are considering designing your own t-shirt, or even if you have never thought about it before, then review the points below and use this to make an informed decision.
Due to the enormous range of products available you can choose a t-shirt with long or short sleeves, in different style and cuts as well as with or without a collar. You can opt for printing on either left breast only, usually for corporate customers just wanting to brand their staff up with work wear. You can also choose full body front, full body back or both sides! T-shirt printing companies can print onto almost any garment and any colour of garment, so you can be very flexible with your design and choose a colour, or range of colours that is personal to you. You can elect to improve the range of colours in your wardrobe and go for something bright and attention grabbing, a complimentary colour that matches with your existing clothing items.
Customised t-shirt printing is great for expressing your own personal style, making a statement and starting new trends. A lot of printing companies have standard designs that they have done themselves, and if you like their graphics you can choose to use those and simply customise with the wording your choose to put on the t-shirt. Alternatively you can do a 100% unique design from scratch and simply upload your artwork to the printer and you can proudly walk around knowing that you are literally the only person in the world sporting that t-shirt! Remember when designing your artwork that colours and font types can make a huge difference to your design, so take time to scour for free fonts to use to make your design even more unique than standard fonts.
If you have a flair for design and have a desire to earn a few extra pounds, then you could aim to sell some of your own t-shirts. A lot of people may want to wear something bespoke but don’t have the skill to execute a professional looking design. That’s where you come in, you can canvas around your friends and family and work colleagues to start with and offer to create them a t-shirt of their choice. By undertaking this for friends and family you can get your designs out there and potentially drum up more business. If you find you are getting lots of positive feedback then you know you could take this to the next level and create some and sell them online yourself.
If you desire to wear something bespoke and individual to you, remember you could actually develop your own brand style and earn some money from it. Alternatively you can keep it simple and just design something for you and have it printed professionally, creating a great look for a small price!
