Did you know that you can screen print a t-shirt right in your own home? Did you know you could do so on your own without any professional help? If you are someone who loves to draw or doodle this could be great for you. You can take these designs and create your very own unique clothing. If you can use a computer, you can make a t-shirt.
To make your own t-shirt you will need to gather supplies. A computer, a printer (inkjet is best), transfer paper, an iron, and a shirt are needed. That is all you need to make your own t-shirt. If this is your first try, gather a couple old t-shirts first to practice on.
The first step is creating your design and can be done by hand or through a design software on the computer. If you create the design without the use of a software, scan your design to the computer and print it on a regular piece of paper first to make sure it looks the way you want without wasting the more expensive transfer paper.
Printing t-shirts leaves endless possibilities. You can print virtually anything you want. A very common reason for printing t-shirts is to raise awareness for a cause. Have a message you want to share with others? Print it on t-shirts, hand them out, and others will see. Another reason is for team related activities. Have a family kickball game coming up? Make t-shirts for both teams and make it more fun for the family to enjoy.
If you don’t have time to print shirts on your own, that’s okay. Today, you can find a t-shirt printing company anywhere. The benefit of using these companies is that you can place large orders that can be done in a short amount of time. Most likely, it will take much shorter than it would if you were to print and iron on designs onto multiple shirts yourself.
Like stated before, if you are an artist, printing t-shirts with your designs is a great way to show your ability to the public. Who would have thought the doodles you make while on the phone could go so far? Try it out. Make a shirt and see what people think, what do you have to lose?
