When most people think of custom-designed t-shirts, they think of lettering t-shirts because these are perfect for every occasion. You can really have fun when designing these t-shirts by customizing messages, fonts, and how the text is displayed. Choose vintage-style lettering when making t-shirts for dads or grandpas on Father’s Day, or use bright lettering and multi-colored words on t-shirts for kids for added fun.

The possibilities are endless with numerous colors, fonts, and sizes to choose from. So make your own graphic tee that everyone else will want, too!

Photo Designs 

Photo t-shirt designs are popular for those that have a special photographed moment in life that they would like to showcase in their wardrobe. These t-shirts are perfect to wear on special occasions like your honeymoon or birthday. It is now easier than ever to have a high-quality picture of a recent graduate, newly married couple, or your pet transferred onto a t-shirt. Simply gather photos of what you plan to illustrate and they can easily be screen printed on apparel and many other items. 

So when a hat that says “dog mom” just doesn’t cut it, you can actually wear a picture of your pup right on your shirt!

Single-Color Designs

T-shirts with a single-color design ensure that your t-shirt will fit in with the rest of your wardrobe. Choose white or another single-color for the design and the linework will really pop. Use a pastel color when you are aiming for a colorful yet simple t-shirt design or choose a lighter garment color with a bold ink color for your design to pop.

Graphic Designs

Businesses, organizations, and individuals can really get creative with graphic designs and transfer them on to t-shirts. Not only can you place a company logo on a t-shirt to help create brand awareness and draw attention, but individuals can have their own cute graphic designs made to celebrate being a stay-at-home mom or dad. T-shirts with graphics that show off what you do and are passionate about are great conversation starters. For businesses, they are ideal for networking with others in the field and communicating brand messages in a more casual and fun way that catches attention.

Sports Designs

Sports uniforms are designed to unify teammates while they are playing a sport together, and custom t-shirts can bring teams together when they are off the field. Use your team name, logo, mascot, and more for t-shirt designs that encourage team spirit on road trips and to pick-up new fans along the way. Teams should have extra t-shirts made to give away to family and fans or to sell for team fundraisers.

Hand-Drawn Designs

T-shirts with hand-drawn and sketched designs allow businesses, organizations, and individuals to be very imaginative, stylish, and stand out in a crowd. Pencil-like drawings contain crisp, detailed linework that is timeless. Neutral, earthy tones work really well in combination with minimalist designs. By increasing the scale of hand-drawn designs, you can have fun with the text you choose since readability won’t be an issue, and really make them pop.

Traditional Tattoo Designs
