We love custom photo T-shirts. They are a great way to make your own personalized T-shirts, and they’re fun! But sometimes, the process can be daunting if you have never done it before. 

Designing your own t-shirts is exciting and creative, but it can also be daunting if you’re unsure where to start. We will have a look at our top tips for successful photo T-shirt design, from what to consider with the design itself to the practicalities of printing your designs onto t-shirts. Whether you are an illustrator, graphic designer or typographer, putting your designs onto t-shirts can be fun and a great way to sell your designs online!

Match Your Colours With the Photo

When designing custom photo t-shirts, it is important to consider the photo you are using. If your photo has a lot of blue in it (for example), an orange or pink shirt will not show up very well against this background colour – even though they look good on their own!

If there’s any part of the photo that you want to make visible on the final design, perhaps try putting some kind of border around these parts and then place them behind something else to avoid overlapping with other colours in the photo. You can also include text over the top, which will help ensure words aren’t hard to read if another colour covers part of it up.

Your Photo On A T-shirt

As a professional in custom t-shirt printing Canada, we would like to share some tips on colour selection for your prints. For photo prints, it’s also important to consider the colour of your photo and how this will work with coloured t-shirts. For example, a photo in black & white or sepia is going to print very well on almost any coloured T-shirt you choose – but for more colourful photos, perhaps try shades that contrast against each other (e.g red + blue) rather than colours that blend into one another (for example orange + yellow).
