6 Great Tips On How To Prepare Artwork for T-Shirt Printing at Just Creative Design

One of the most frustrating experiences as a designer is spending hours of hard work perfecting your design only to be told that it isn’t actually printable. There are a lot of differences between graphic design in its own right and graphic design as it relates to t-shirt printing. Remember that the screen printers are your allies in the process and that there are a few things you can do to make your design easier to print.

It’s important to bear in mind right from the start what purpose you have for your design. It ultimately has to be something that will look good once it’s printed on an actual shirt. Help the screen printers get it right by taking as much guesswork as possible out of the process when it comes to print colors and other aspects of your artwork.

Here is our article “6 Great Tips On How To Prepare Artwork for T-Shirt Printing” at Just Creative Design showing you how to do just that.


Questions To Ask For 4-Color T-Shirt Printing at MyInkBlog

4-Color process t-shirt printing is a beast to get right. Especially when customer expectations are for the t-shirt print to come out exactly like the photo print on paper or on the computer. It is nearly impossible and should be expected at 80-85% quality at best. However, if that is the only way you can go with the design you created, we put together a few questions you should ask the t-shirt printer before the printing is done.

One of the main components when asking these questions is measuring the amount of confidence in the answers from the printer. If it is something they do all the time and know from experience how well they are fit for the job, then jump on it. If they seem shaky and unsure, then look in another direction. 4-Color process printing on t-shirts is not something to be taken lightly and certainly isn’t something you should try and convince a screen printer to try if they aren’t comfortable with it.
