* Use solid colors only.
* Make sure you don’t design the artwork with black color if you will print it on a black tee.
For people who use photographs for designs on your shirts, this is a must. Have the background removed or have a border for it. Otherwise, your shirt will look like an iron-on instead.
There are some designs that are not symmetrical and at times we tend to find the center of the design. However, you should not look for the center based on the width. Place your design on the center that is based on what is visually the center.
Make sure it’s readable! And remember, less is more. The advised number of fonts to be used in a single design is 3 fonts max.
Contrast is the level of visual difference between the lighter and darker parts of an image. The highest contrast is not the goal of most, and if you are more on the subtle side of this then try to achieve a low-contrast instead of having no contrast at all.
Inversion is very crucial in designs that are in white ink, and are printed on black shirts. Unless you want your designs to look like x-rays, you should pay attention to this.
