But the easiest route might be hiring an experienced graphic designer. That person can be a local college student, a freelance designer, or better yet you can contact us for help!

Like any great endeavor, t-shirt design requires different facets and design resources. Having quality artwork to display on your t-shirt plays a huge role in creating a great shirt. Quality artwork plays a major part in producing a quality product. Once you have a finished and optimized a piece of artwork, printing out a design on a direct-to-garment printer is easy. Clipart can be used in combination with your own art or text to make great t-shirt designs. I personally like to use clipart as a component with text. I then modify the colors or design with a graphics editing program.

Also if you don’t have the money to buy expensive graphics program don’t worry, here you can download two free software program here: Gimp or Inkscape

Gimp is still a favorite of mine to this day. I use it along with other software to achieve the desired result.
