How to Make an Attractive, Affordable Event T-Shirt

Spring is just around the corner, which means warm weather,
blooming flowers…and company t-shirts!

This time every year, we get a huge wave of requests to make logo t-shirts and other apparel items for events such as benefit walks. This process often includes securing sponsorships, and including those companies’ logos on your customized items. We’ve put together a list of quick tips to help you make ordering those shirts just a little easier:
  1. Select a blank shirt that you would like to decorate. Decide between long sleeves or short sleeves, and then pick a color.
  2. Get an idea of what quantity you'd like to order.
  3. Decide on your imprint:  will you have design on the front only? Back only? Both front and back?  How large do you want the imprint be?
  4. Ask your sponsors to send their logos:
    1. In high-resolution – a resolution of at least 300 DPI will allow the image to look crisp on screen printed items
    2. Using spot color – Spot colors are a specific custom ink color, and they need to be included in the original logo artwork.
    3. In an EPS or PDF file type – These types of file formats are vector, which means the image will look very crisp on the finished product.
  5. Decide on screen print or embroidery: Generally speaking, event shirts, especially those with sponsors listed on the back, are screen printed.  Embroidery works well for decorating a shirt with one or two logos, but if your message needs to be fairly large in size, screen print will be the most attractive and cost-effective way to decorate.
Get someone else’s opinion, and rely on your supplier for help! If you don’t have the time to create a design yourself, just send us the elements you want on your item and any vision you have, and we can take it from there. Our graphic design team can create a great design, and our product specialists can help you find shirts, banners, or various other promotional items to fit any event or budget.
