Five suggestions to boost your T-shirt designs

A popular T-shirt model is always appreciated. What makes people want to wear a style again and again?

Sometimes the best ideas are simple, but even the simplest designs must avoid the most obvious flaws. Here are five suggestions to boost your T-shirt designs.

1) Choose a manageable font size

T-shirt designs are not one of those situations when size is irrelevant. One typical error is to use default dimensions while creating a design. While the maximum is desirable, the standard is sometimes too big.

Design size should be based on shirt use, fabric properties, and pattern details. Smaller circles and squares look better. Consider the print’s surface area as well as its length and height.

2) Properly position it

Placement of prints varies on location of prints. It’s a precise calculation of where on the surface the design should be printed.

Make sure you have a valid justification for any unconventional print positioning decisions. A common full front location isn’t in the middle of the shirt, as many people who are new to T-shirt design assume. It’s closer to four inches below the neckline. The belly print is a popular faux pas, but it is never a good idea.

3) Give emphasis to typography and typefaces

Typography, unlike typeface, is the visual presentation of text. Typography is always present, regardless of text quality.

Graphic designers at Customnia use typography, or the art of typesetting, to create legible and aesthetically pleasing compositions. From choosing the right fonts and sizes to checking line and letter spacing, this includes everything.

Typography doesn’t require academic art training. A few simple rules apply.

4) Use caution while composing

You may have studied composition in high school art. The arrangement of design elements is called composition. Good design requires composition.

An attractive composition may seem subjective, but there are guidelines to strengthen a design. They think you should know the rules before breaking them. Online resources can help you improve your composition skills. 

5) Make sure the pictures look good

When clients upload their own artwork, “low resolution” is a regular complaint. This means they can’t provide the high resolution and fine detail needed for high-quality prints.

Full-size images should be 200 dpi. Resolutions of up to 300 dpi are recommended. Images downloaded from the internet are usually 72 dpi and too small to print.

Compression artifacts are another issue with low-resolution photos. It’s important to remember that the print will only look as good as the picture we use to make it.
