If You’re Not A Designer, Please Don’t Design Your Own T-shirts!


The t-shirt design is the most important part of the t-shirt business. Albeit the actual t-shirt blank is very important. Theoretically, every t-shirt brand can use the same blanks. However, what differentiates each t-shirt brand are the actual designs. With that being stated, t-shirt design is as much an art as it is a science. We all want the best t-shirt designs. Unfortunately, not all of us are artistically inclined. Sometimes, people see the simplicity of design and think to themselves. “I can do that”.

Not so fast, player. It’s not that easy. Sometimes people with no design experience or artistic talent design T-shirts. When they do, The results are usually disastrous.

One of the problems is when a novice designs a t-shirt. In many instances, they see it as better than what it truly is. It makes sense when you’ve created something yourself, because you tend to become attached to it. However, the world sees it for what it REALLY is…an amateurish graphic who put together a terribly designed t-shirt! So, the best advice I can give you is to find yourself a graphic designer.

I know that may sound like a daunting task. It sounds like it’s expensive but it’s not.

Don’t get me wrong. There are expensive designers, but there are so many places to find high-quality artists that are inexpensive. Please don’t take it personally, but leave the designing to the professionals. The first most inexpensive place to find a T-shirt designer is fiverr.com.

Here at Fiverr, you can get a t-shirt design for as little as 5 dollars.

Please note sometimes you get what you pay for, so carefully vet the designers you hire. Some of these guys will give you crap. It can be hit or miss. The next option is upwork.com. It’s a great place to find all kinds of freelancers. All you have to do is create an account. Post a job offer. Sit back and let the applicants start rolling in. Get yourself a designer ASAP. It’s just that simple.

Thanks & Good Luck
