					How To Do Your Own T-Shirt Printing?

The best clothing that you can be proud to own is not one that you bought from the most expensive
designer store but one that you printed on your own. Although there are many places where you can
get different designs from and use them on the t-shirt, coming up with your own creative design is the
better option. It may sound quite hard to handle but, the end results of any printed t-shirts will be worth
it all.



T-shirt printing has to start by you preparing the t-shirts to print. Washing before printing will enable
them to expand if they were meant to. If one goes ahead with printing on a new t-shirt, it may end up
expanding; hence interfere with the original design.



Next, make sure that you have a fresh toner. This will enable you make several designs without the need
of replacing the ink or getting the wrong color shade. Other than the toner, the computer settings
should be carefully set. One can experiment before hand with a piece of paper or cloth. It also has to of
the highest quality to make it possible to have produce designs that will last for long.



Make sure that you use the recommended transfer paper. In regards to the materials of the t-shirt, the
paper should be able to give the best results. T-shirt printing has also to involve that one gets to work
with various design softwares like Photoshop and CorelDraw. Many a times you will be required to scale
down the photos to a particular size. Ensure that even after design/image adjustments have been done,
the quality of the image remains the same.



Once you are sure that you have the right settings, toner, quality image and transfer paper, you can then
proceed to have print. The printed t-shirts should be dried appropriately to avoid running of colors to
the wrong areas. The best way of getting them dry is by the use of heat pressers. The pressers come
with instruction manuals. Follow them so that you get the exact print on your t-shirt that you are looking
for. This method is quite expensive especially if you only need to work with a single shirt. To save on
cost, invest in mass production rather than a single item at a time.
