Giving someone a custom-printed t shirt is one of the best presents you can give! It’s a thoughtful gift that will be cherished by the recipient.
The great thing about a custom tee is you don’t have to search for hours in bargain bins or anywhere else to find that wonderful design that you know the recipient of the shirt will appreciate. You can make it yourself.
So how do you do it? How do you make a custom shirt the perfect gift for your significant other, friend, colleague, or whoever happens to be the lucky guy/gal who will be getting the shirt?
Step one is to think about what the other person is really interested in. For example, a person who is a practitioner of meditation might be interested in a shirt with a minimalistic design or which displays their love for meditation (NAMASTE text or a silhouette of a person meditating).
Obviously, knowing the other person’s personality is a plus when you want to give a custom shirt as a gift. But more than just personality, the recipient of the shirt will appreciate the gift more if the design has been well thought out.
Some design ideas that you can use include: the person’s favorite quote, book, movie, location, activity, fictional characters, etc. Or add a dash of humor to your design. Just make sure the humor will be 100% appreciated.
As long as the image and text in the shirt will be easily recognizable to the person receiving the shirt, you’re on the right track.
Getting Started with Creating your Own T-Shirt
Custom t shirt websites have changed dramatically since they became popular in the early 2000s. Now the process is very efficient and allows the creator to have fun designing the t shirt.
The first step is to select the size, type, material and color of the shirt. You are going to see a dizzying array of choices. To simplify the process, simply check dimensions and material of your most comfortable tee and use it as a reference on the custom tee website.
The next step is the fun part, selecting a design! Custom t-shirt websites offer hundreds of design templates to choose from. If you can’t find the perfect template, create your own by uploading artwork or use their custom design tool features. It’s really easy to insert text or symbols and change colors. Then just place your order and wait for your shirt to arrive in the mail. Pretty simple stuff!
Giving a custom designed t-shirt as a gift will be a memorable event. We’re positive this thoughtful gift will be cherished by the recipient and will be a gift they will never forget.
