Creative tips on making a trendy print

  • A fine line between trendy and kitschy

    With VistaCreate’s print samples, it’s so easy to make a unique t-shirt design online. But it’s also easy to go overboard if you don’t know exactly what you want. Before you proceed with your own art, take your time to research fashion and design trends. While editing, use matching colors from one palette. Don’t put a picture on a cluttered canvas. Try to avoid faded colors if you’re not aiming for this effect on purpose. Wondering how to make a bold statement without actually using a lot of design elements? When in doubt, the best option is to keep your print minimalistic—a short phrase may be enough, while a simple illustration can make an impression without any words.

  • Typography matters, especially on a t-shirt

    If you want people to read the slogan on your t-shirt, make it striking. Express your thoughts with the help of creative fonts. Style your most important message or phrase differently from the rest of your text. For example, choose a script font and tilt a text block so that it looks like real handwriting. You can also choose a decorative font with bold strokes if you want to express confidence.

  • Don’t go over the top with images

    When you’re free to design anything in a shirt creator app like VistaCreate, you can get overwhelmed with illustrations or patterns. Remember about balance—if you already have a key visual in the center of your t-shirt, there’s no need to add five more on the sides just because you can. Remember that a successful design composition usually has one key focus point that turns heads. The rest of the composition has to be clean, less cluttered.

  • Avoid the “expectations vs reality” situation

    You can get the t-shirt of your dreams, but first, it’s crucial to understand that printing on fabrics is very different from printing on paper. Before you start designing, consult with the specialist who does the actual printing, especially if you plan to print on a large scale. Find out if there are any recommendations regarding the size, color, contrast, and format of your future print. If you want to use your own images for a t-shirt design, make sure there’s no copyright on them, because otherwise, you won’t be able to wear them.
