T-Shirt Printing : 3 things to shirt printing keep foremost in mind. These three inexpensive tips are easy to follow, user friendly and will give you lots of satisfaction when you wear your personalized tops soon.
Lets focus on the end in mind. Instead of sporting off in a hurry and ordering tops online to be printed I suggest you start with the end in mind.
Why do you want to print a shirt? Is it for work or is it for a birthday celebration? Maybe it’s for a fun run soon or just as a gift for someone? Would it be as a memory of a trip recently taken?
Each of these events above may result in deciding on a different garment for the person to make note of. Maybe the climate around you may influence what you wear. It is important to keep this in mind while deciding to print designs on tops. A hoodie as a gift in summer may not be as acceptable as a crew neck T-shirt. So lets begin!
Tip 1: Why Do you want to Print Your own Shirt?
This is an important question because it will lead us to the stage that the shirt, the fabric it is made off and whether it’s a Jersey or Hoodie for winter wear or a Sleeveless T-shirt or Scoop Neck shirt for a hot summer event.
Let me give you three examples here to help you know the way this planning stage is vital before you run off buying tops randomly online.
Example One! Lets imagine you’ve planned a bucks night out one Weekend soon with the boys. It’s all about the lick as its his wedding day out with the guys. The bunch of friends decide that the theme will be around the groom’s football team.
Choosing one is that everyone will wear a T-shirt custom printed with characters of the footy idols with a twist. Each footy player will be done up as a cartoon character instead of using the players’ images. This could be a great party with sustained tops. Get a visual designer to create some paintings of characters for the whole party.
Example Two! You have a patio event happening around fitness. Your fitness club needs tops with logos printed on the front and back as well as the fleshlight sleeves. The club wants a polyester shirt and needs the tops to be cost-effective. Now because the tops are not cotton I suggest thinking about screen printing the logos and designs onto the T-shirts instead of digitally printing the images on. To get the best prices most printers declare that a minimum of 20 tops must be printed at a time. So once you got your tops sorted out all you need then is to go onto tip #2 to get quality tops printed.
Example Three! Imagine you’ve planned a birthday celebration for a 6-year-old girl. There are going to be 30 kids coming along and you want tops to match the party theme. You can either go for a T-shirt or a sweatshirt to suit the youngsters. Ordering in bulk will be cost-effective for you as most printing companies offer discounts for large bulk orders. Once you know what the point is for its time to move on to tip #2 below.
Once the type of shirt is known now its time to decide what you like printed on tip. We have a choice of images, designs or TEXT. Here we should focus on the image or photo we will print on the clothing. This leads us to Tip #2.
Tip 2: What Images Sizes Are Best For Printing?
I find that most people who approach me to get their T-shirts printed do not have the proper photo size to begin with. What most people do is they grab free images off Google or Facebook. Though these graphics may look OK on a small screen they don’t often are the right size to print on a much large surface such as a shirt or jumper.
The images on the web are reduced in size and are around ninety-six dpi resolution or around 5 cm by 5 cm in space. These images will not be big enough to even look good on the breast pocket of your polo business tops.
If you were to try stretching out the image across the back or front of the Tee you will get a pixelated image printed due to the poor quality of the image you used.
The solution is going for big file size images. The recommended resolution for good images is a minimum of 300 dpi or about 30 cm by 30 cm in space. Three times what is mentioned above. These are large files and if stretched will easily produce great quality printed tops when you print the graphics onto the dresses.
