First three steps to making great shirts

  1. Great artwork - you need to have something compelling on the shirt. Whether it's your logo or artwork, make sure it's something people want to wear on their chest.
  2. Choose a high quality garment - cheap shirts feel cheap. They shrink over time, the cut looks funny, and the fabric feels itchy. Get something that feels good.
  3. Artwork placement is important - consider where you're putting your artwork! Especially on women's shirts.

Check back on Saturday for the next steps: printing (ink) type, how to order samples, how to get feedback, how to do production runs.
