How can I design my own T-shirts?

To design your own T-shirt, start by choosing the style of shirt you want to design. Some online websites let you design your own hoodies and tank tops as well as T-shirts. The type of shirt you need will depend on why you’re designing a shirt in the first place. If it’s for a business, then a T-shirt may be the most appropriate option. Once you have that figured out, it is the time to put your design ideas to work.

On an online website of your choosing, you can add your design or clip art. If you don’t know exactly what you want your design to look like, you can use the templates provided to try out the fonts and images they have available.

When you’re designing your T-shirt, you can also get an idea of pricing. The pricing of custom gear can vary depending on the complexity of the design and how many shirts you need to purchase.

To see who the best T-shirt designer is, search your favorite social media channels such as Instagram and Pinterest. Art and design are subjective, so the style you like may differ from those that others prefer.*
