Creating Cool T-Shirts On A Budget!


Keen to design t-shirt for your squad, but you're working with a tight budget? This blog post will help you to get started on your t-shirt project you've been procrastinating!

Design Matters

It all starts with your design. We recommend sticking with 1-3 color prints. Not only will this be more cost effective, but the best looking t-shirts mostly consist of 2-3 color prints. Check out some examples below.



You know what they say, less is definitely more! So don't be afraid to “stinge” and keep to only one or two colors in your design. It might even make your artwork stand out if you use the right color combinations!


The next point where you can save money is strategically determining the placement of your design. It may sound obvious, but the more positions you print on, the more it will cost. But as the examples above, it is not necessary to print on the front, on the back, and on both sleeves your t-shirt. Try squeezing your extra prints and logos in one area of the t-shirt; usually the front and/or back.
