What You Need to Be Tips T-shirt Printing at Home

I love t-shirts. They’re comfy, easy to wear and they fit just about everyone. But with so many options on the market, how do you know which one is right for you? That’s where I come in! In this post, I’ll show you how to design your own shirt that will be printed at home using an online service like Printfull or Teespring.

Choose the right shirt.

When it comes to printing on cetak t shirt, there’s a lot of choices. You can get 100% cotton tees or ones made from a blend of materials. And if you’re going for a more casual look, consider getting some that are made from jersey material instead of plain cotton.

When choosing your shirt colour and size, keep in mind that white shirts work best with dark ink colours (like black and red) while light colours work well with lighter shades like yellow or pink. Also note that printing on smaller sizes tends to cost more than larger ones because they take longer to print than bigger ones do!

Find a pre-made design or create your own.

Whether you’re creating a design from scratch or using a pre-made template, it’s important to find the right shirt. If you’re going to be doing any kind of printing at home, then we’d recommend using a cotton t-shirt. Cotton shirts hold up better when they get wet, and they don’t stretch out as easily as other fabrics do (which can cause your design to look off).

To find pre-made designs:

  • Go online and search for “free t-shirt templates” or “free printable”. There are lots of sites that offer these kinds of downloads and they’re often free! You can also check out our blog post on where to find free printable files here: https://www.printyourmindzblog/2018/05/07/where-to-find-free-printable/. Don’t forget that if there isn’t an exact match for what you want, sometimes it’s possible that someone else has designed something similar enough that could work just fine too!

To create your own design:

  • Open up Adobe Illustrator (or whichever software program) and start drawing! You’ll probably want some sort of reference image in front of your screen while working so that everything stays proportional; we’ve found this website helpful with finding images from movies/tv shows etcetera: https://www.pixabay.com/.

Design a template, if needed.

If you’re using a template, make sure that it’s the right size for your custom t shirt. If you’re creating your own design, use a program that supports vector graphics. Vector graphics allow for crisp lines and smooth curves the type of thing that will print well on T-shirts and other fabric items. Make sure the design is high quality: no pixelation or blurry edges!

Print the design on the shirt.

For this step, you need to print the design on the shirt. You can use a heat press or screen-printing kit if you want to create more complex designs and lettering. If you’re looking for something simple and easy, try t-shirt transfer paper or iron-on transfer paper instead!

T-shirt printing at home can be quick and easy, but you’ll need to prepare.

You’ll need to prepare your design before you start printing. You can create it yourself or find one online. If you choose to design something from scratch, make sure that the image is high quality and not pixelated.

Next, prepare your shirt by washing it with warm water and detergent before starting any project. This will ensure that there is no dirt on the shirt that could affect how well it prints later.

The printer itself should be set up properly so that it can work properly when trying to print on shirts or other materials like fabric material (which requires specific settings). It’s important not only for getting good results but also for keeping costs down as well as making sure nothing goes wrong during production!


T-shirt printing at home can be a fun and easy project for anyone. With just a few supplies, you can create t-shirts for yourself or as gifts for others. Before you get started, though, make sure your printer is ready to print on fabric and that it has adequate power.
