Designing Your Own T-Shirt with POD

This design depicts a Kendama Lighthouse, with a red ball, a red and white stick, and a black and white gradient crosspiece.

Printed T-shirts were in limited use by 1942 when an Air Corps Gunnery School T-shirt appeared on the cover of Life magazine. In the 1960s, printed T-shirts gained popularity for self-expression as well for advertisements, protests, and souvenirs.

Nowadays, with the help of your computer, some simple graphics, and a print-on-demand service, you have the option of designing your own t-shirt. Customized t-shirts are a perfect way to express yourself, promote a cause, give a unique gift, promote your business, or celebrate an occasion or holiday.

You can create t-shirts with funny or clever graphics, quotes or slogans. The possibilities are only constrained by your creativity.

After you have settled on a design, find a print-on-demand website that sells customized t-shirts. There are several websites from which to choose. Here a a few of the best POD websites: Cafe Press, Society6, Redbubble, and Zazzle.

When designing your t-shirt avoid large square photos. If you want to print your design on a dark t-shirt, you have the ability to specify which parts of your image should be transparent, and which parts should actually be printed as “white”.

Shipping, Deadlines, and Discounts

When ordering t-shirts online, make sure you know how long it will take for the actual item to be produced and shipped to you. Take advantage of any volume discounts and promo codes. Be aware of a particular website’s holiday shipping deadlines.
