Getting your own custom t-shirts made is a big deal. Here are 3 ways that you can get the most from your custom t shirt printing project.
TL;DR Quick Summary
- Don’t take images from the web. To get the most crisp prints have native files (vectors).
- Trust your t shirt printing supplier when they recommend garments.
- Give your custom t shirt printing vendor time to do great work.
People bring us their t shirt printing projects all the time. We make sure to create the best prints that we can for our customers. This includes spending time making sure our direct to garment printers are up to date on maintenance, a temperature controlled environment exists to produce the most beautiful custom t-shirts, etc. Here are 3 things that you as the customer can do to make you get the most from your custom t shirt printing project.
Please Stop Taking Images From Google
There is a huge difference between web and print images. The way an image is exported, makes a HUGE difference in the final image that is produced onto the garment. The design that you found via a google search, you can use that design as inspiration for your custom t shirt printing project. For example, by using a service like Fiverr or UpWork, you can get an original design created. Some people that you hire will the take the image you provide and “vectorize” it. Don’t do that! Have a brand new art file created and ask your designer to not flatten the layers and to provide the native file (Photoshop File, Illustrator File, etc.) The native file is the file you want to give your t shirt printing shop.
Trust Your T Shirt Printing Shop’s Garment Recommendations
T Shirt Printing shops know the best garments to produce custom t-shirts, hoodies and apparel on. Because they produce custom apparel in high volumes, there is experience there. That’s the knowledge that we are passing on to you. If you have a favorite shirt and your t shirt printing shop says there is an equivalent that they recommend, here’s why you should consider that recommendation. The recommended shirt most likely has a higher front facing thread count. The higher thread count provides more area space for the ink to take hold. This produces a more crisp print and long term durability for machine washing. Please keep this in mind for your next custom t shirt printing project.
You Can Only Have 2 of 3: Speed, Quality or Price
Seriously. It’s extremely hard to do all three. When giving your custom t-shirt printing shop your project, keep the principle of 2 out 3 in mind. Good products take time, high quality involves not cutting corners. Keeping prices low means efficiency, but sometimes efficiency takes the back burner to technique. The more time that you give your t shirt printing shop, the more time they have to produce the best custom t shirt product for you.
