Tips and Tricks to Get the Most From Your Screen Printed Designs

A booming industry is the screen printing industry. These businesses can print any design the customer wants onto a t-shirt in an easy and cost-effective way. Many customers go to t-shirt printing companies for bulk orders for family reunions, day camps, charity events, school events, and so much more. It’s usually easier and cheaper to hire a t-shirt printing company for your designs and these tips and tricks will help you get the most of your designs.

  • Consult with your t-shirt printing company- Not all companies have the technology or skills to complete all different designs or order sizes. It’s important to talk with your printing company ahead of time to see if they are truly capable of your design, color choices, and the number of t-shirts you need. Smaller companies may not have the resources to complete huge mass orders. Talk to the company ahead of time to avoid issues down the road.
  • Color limitations- While many customers need convincing to go with this tip, limiting the amount of colors can greatly benefit your orders. First off, the more colors you use, the more complicated the design and the more money your order will cost. It’s recommended to limit your designs to 1 to 3 colors in order to keep costs down.
  • Color selection- Another consideration is to choose colors carefully. Light colors may not show up on a white t-shirt. Likewise, dark colors may not be visible on a black t-shirt. Make sure you are very selective with the colors you choose because you may end up with an end-result you’re not satisfied with.
  • Simple designs- The simpler your design, the better. Especially for events, you want your message to be clear, concise, and elegant. You don’t want the design to take away from the message. In addition, complicated imagery doesn’t always print well on a design. The simpler your design, the better off you’ll be.

The above tips will help you get the most out of your screen printed designs.
