However, the biggest negative is that there is no white ink in this printing method. So, if you were to print the Canadian flag on a light blue T-Shirt the flag would be red and light blue instead of red and white. However, there is a T-Shirt transfer paper designed especially for printing on dark T-Shirts that solves this problem.
2) You can download lots of different images including your favourite cartoon character, actor, etc. from the wide variety available online. While doing so, make sure that some of the pre requisites are satisfied like the number of pixels and the exact size. The size of the image should be compatible with the actual size that you want to print out. If you want a piece of writing to be showcased on the printed t-shirt, you can download various fonts and write any message that you want using the Notepad or the Wordpad.
Another method is Direct To Garment (DTG) printing. This is a method of running the actual shirt through a printer which prints the image on to the shirt just as a standard in home ink jet printer would print out a document from your computer. There has been some talk in the design community of the ink drying or clumping up in these machines, but I have seen the work they do and it looks great and feels great on the shirt. This is a higher end option at this time with some printers going for around $25,000. You could get a used on for around $16,000, but it would take a lot of shirts to pay off that large of an investment.
A little bit of research:Reading a little on the internet about T shirt designs will be very helpful. You will get to know about colour schemes, different kind of inks etc..
As you can see, promotional t shirts are an interesting way to advertise your message. When designing your shirts, it’s always best to keep in mind the end result that you want to achieve. Ask yourself, «What is my goal in doing this?», and this way you’ll have a clearer understanding of how to design and print your custom apparel.
Next consider if there is any writing on the shirt. People seem to have differing opinions regarding writing on T-shirts, but one thing we have noticed is that profanity is not so in fashion this year as it has been and it can offend a number of different people. Make sure that you are comfortable with people of all ages reading the shirt that you are looking at and that you would be sure not to offend them in any way. This will keep you from being in any kind of situation that might be awkward.
Not all custom t-shirt manufacturers offer the same level of quality. One major difference in the print quality lies in the paper that is used. The more advanced t-shirt printers require commercial grade paper instead of ordinary transfer paper to be used, and the image is transferred to the shirt through a heat press process. Better quality printing can give you impressive printouts that last for a long time even with frequent wash.
