Mistakes to avoid when making your own t-shirt.
When making your own t-shirt, you already have a mental image of how the final product should be. If you are looking to get the perfect self-designed t-shirt, then here are a couple of mistakes you should avoid;
1.Wrong size of the design and print- you have the perfect image or comment but then it is too big to fit on the shirt or too small to be visible. To avoid such disappointments, be sure to consider the size of the design in accordance to your t-shirt by using a product size feature.
2.Using poor quality shirts- you have spent a fortune and probably a big chunk of your time but when the t-shirt arrives, you are shook. The design is there alright, but it looks like it will peel in the next two weeks and the t-shirt is the biggest scam of all time. Ensure you use quality materials for the best results.
3.Picking the wrong size t-shirt- before you roll your eyes at me, I know it seems quite obvious but it happens. Buying a small t-shirt is a waste as the design will be stretched out, making it difficult to make out the image or wordings. An overly big t-shirt is just not flattering.
4.Bad colour combination- I agree, it is your t-shirt but the thing is, not all colour combinations match. While one colour is just basic, a lot of colours are an eyesore. You need something that is cool and fashionable. For the best results, don’t mix more than three colours not unless it is an absolute necessity.
5.Choosing the wrong printing platform- more often than not, cheap is always expensive. The number 1 rookie mistake you could make, is picking a printing company based on the prices. Sure, you need something affordable but have you considered the fact that there are reputable platforms offering the same service and an affordable price?
