What Makes a Good T-Shirt Design? Tips from Our Experts:

We've rounded up the highlights for you, but you can get a full run-down of do's and don'ts for making a professional design on our post on how to make a good t-shirt design. (Click this link for some great tips and mistakes to avoid when designing a successful t-shirt)

1. Make sure your image files are high quality

This is one of the most common problems we see with t-shirt designs, and the image quality of your art can make or break the final product. We recommend images that are 200 dpi or higher at full size. Vector files (PDF, EPS, AI or SVG file types) are also design-friendly.

2. Focus on your fonts

On t-shirts, how your message looks is just as important as the words you use. No pressure, right? So carefully consider the font you want to use and how it might add or detract from what you're trying to say on your shirt.
