First three steps to making great shirts
- 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.
- 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.
- Artwork placement is important - consider where you're putting your artwork! Especially on women's shirts.
