Did you notice that our occupation affects the way we dress?

For instance, I prefer comfortable clothes like jeans and t-shirts or tank tops. Most of my colleagues stick to the same style, but this doesn’t mean that we look similar.

The choice of cool t-shirts is really vast nowadays. Most of the specialized stores offer a “design t-shirt” service, where you can choose the print yourself, which is awesome as creative personalities like web designers have their own idea of style.

I believe that every person is one and only, so they should wear unique t-shirts. Do you agree with me? Do you also like cool t-shirt designs? Did you ever make an online t-shirt design for your friend as a present? I do things like that sometimes and my friends always go into raptures getting such a personal present. It’s so pleasant to see them wearing those cool t-shirts then.

Well, let’s get closer to the topic of this blog post. Where did you buy your last design t-shirt? Maybe you want to try out some other places? You will see 12 online stores to shop for graphic design t-shirts down below. Their products are quality, funny, nerdy, but what is more important, they are unique, just like you. Consider this list as one more way for self-expression as I am sure you have what to tell to the world.

It's impossible to imagine a wardrobe of modern people without t-shirts. Everyone has a number of t-shirts - for all occasions. This is an iconic part of rocker's style, a necessary garment for athletes and workers.

Today, it's hard to believe that some 70+ years ago people were hardly accepting t-shirts at all. Nobody can tell for sure when the first t-shirt appeared, but the fact is from bare essentials they were used as underwear. In 1913 US Navy adopted crew-necked, short-sleeved, white undershirts, they were supposed to, attention...conceal sailors' chest hair.

Before they turned into casual style clothes t-shirts were mostly worn by working men up to the late 40s. Workers preferred sleeveless t-shirts called “singlets”.

Printed t-shirts will never go out of fashion. If you are a designer who wants to "try on" the logo on a t-shirt or you producebrand clothing with an individual design, you will definitely need a t-shirt mockup for your project.

A mockup is, in fact, a product layout that is used by designers for a more visual demonstration of the created design. After all, the ability to look at the finished design directly on the product is much better than checking the same design just on the monitor. So, thanks to a t shirt template, it is nice to show the customer how great the completed design will look like in reality. Sure thing, this will lead to more sales and satisfied customers.

T shirt mockup can include a model girl or a boy wearing the
t-shift to help clients understand how their apparel will finally look like. Alternately, it can be just a blank t-shirt on a plain background.

What Influenced Spreading of T-shirts?

In the 60s, there was a craze about the coloring of t-shirts. By the end of the sixties, this trend entered the fashion industry and it was a success! In those years a common t-shirt has become the way to achieve social and political goals, mostly because of mottos and slogans people 'printed on their chests'.

Further, the classical form of t-shirts subjected to all possible transformations and changes: sleeveless, collars cut as the capital letter V, with or without collar, etc.

In 70s, the increasing popularity of T-shirts was due to the music industry. The most popular rock bands started selling t-shirts with their images and symbols. It was an impressive income in the music business.

Years have passed and t-shirts got any possible colors, pictures, prints, and mottos. But what interests us the most are the t-shirts for web designers, so we've made a selection of uptown t-shirts for you. We hope you will enjoy it.

Make Your Own T-Shirt Design

Being young and trying to put your creativity to good use is something I am very familiar with.

Have you ever found yourself trying to create something meaningful, elegant and eye-catching? Listen, it doesn’t actually matter what kind of product you tried to design and produce, your idea and ambitions - that’s what defines you as a creative person with a magical spark under your assб unless you're not wearing nylon underpants.

Since early childhood, I was a huge fan of unique and unusual t-shirt designs. I have always been that guy who surfs all over the internet on a daily basis looking for something unusual to surprise my friends and make sure he looks hip.

Time went by and I’ve got a solid understanding of how to stand out from the crowd.

I should print and produce my own t-shirts!” - I cried out these words, ran to my laptop and did the research.

So here is a small recap of that pile of information that I approached and consumed: starting your own t-shirt line is not such a bad idea. It is very easy to start a store and sell anything you want on the internet, so finding a platform to sell your t-shirts on is not a problem at all. The main thing you should focus on is a top-notch design for the products itself. In our case, you should design your own t-shirt.

Do you want to hear the good news? It’s not so hard to make your own t-shirt design nowadays! There are plenty of design freebies to work with. Just use some of your Photoshop or Illustrator skills and spice it with some unique ideas, the ideas you like and believe in.

freebiesbug.com - Freebies Vectors, Photos and PSD files

freepik.com - Free Photos, Vector and PSD files

You can use any of these design freebies and create a cool t-shirt by simply combining them and playing around with some taglines.

Once you have created the design itself, you will definitely want to see how it will look on the t-shirt. That’s where you’ll have to work with the mockups.

Basically, you may use the same website for the mockup research, but I usually simply go to the Dribbble or Behance and find there some free PSD mockups. All you need to search for is the ‘T-shirt mockup’ and download the one you like.

How to use mockups

Using the mockups is easy: you simply open it in Photoshop and click on the layer that is usually named ‘PUT YOUR DESIGN HERE’ or something like that. Here is the tutorial for those who never worked with mockups.

Once you figure out that the illustration for your t-shirt is ready, you should decide where to print it. A long time ago it was a pretty problematic question, but nowadays it’s so easy to find the company that will print any number of t-shirts for a reasonable price.

How to design a t-shirt for free and start selling it?

Let me tell you more! Nowadays you can start a small t-shirt shop without having to find a place where to print the t-shirts and without even developing your own e-commerce platform. All you need to do is to get the actual illustrations and sign up on a website in a few minutes. It’s still not so easy, cause you will still need to test out a few places and see what quality works best for you, but it’s still much easier than building a t-shirt printing studio from zero.

I will show you one of the services you may find around the internet, but that’s just an example. Nowadays there are plenty of them, so you just have to choose the one you like and the one that offers the best benefits for you.

Teespring.com is one of those cute and convenient platforms that let you not only design a t-shirt for free but also sell it and get some money. Yeah, we are not talking just about printing one exclusive t-shirt for your dad anymore, we are talking business here, my friend!
