It’s easy to get bored of your wardrobe after some time, but you can always add some magic with customized clothes. But how can you design your own clothing? With Printful t-shirts, you can open up a whole new world of possibilities and combinations, even making your own fashion statement if you want to.

Here is everything you need to know about designing your own clothes!

Design Your Own Clothes Online

Nowadays, it's easier than ever to make your own clothes, even from the comfort of your home. All you need to do is figure out your style and which printing website you want to work with, then get started. Before deciding on what website you want to go with, check out their products, client reviews, materials and printing techniques, and how long orders typically take for your region.

Some printing websites have more product variety than others. You should browse their pages and see if they have your type of clothing. Whether it’s jackets, t-shirts, and hoodies, or shoes, dresses, and more, view all the varieties available because this is what you will be working with.

Client reviews are important because they indicate product quality, how others designed their clothes, and how they turned out. When it comes to materials, each product has its own description, and you can easily check the fabrics and go with what you feel is best.

When it comes to printing techniques, the more the merrier! Some websites work only with screen-printing techniques; others use embroidery; and some use both. It’s all up to you and what types of clothes you wish to create!

Design Tools

Another key aspect of deciding which printing company you want to work with when designing your clothes is their design tools. Some of the best websites provide their clients with design-maker tools and guidelines on how to achieve the best print.

These design tools allow you to play with various templates and customize your clothes or create your own design. In some cases, you can even make your clothes with online copyright-free pictures, or if you are good with a camera, you can take some pictures outdoors, edit them, and use them in your next custom garment.

To get the best results, always follow the guidelines provided by the company you want to work with. For example, embroidery printing works best with smaller designs since it can get a bit heavy. That’s why you should always choose thicker fabrics when working with embroidery.

With screen printing, you have greater freedom to make whatever design you wish, no matter how big or small. With direct-to-garment printing, no matter where you want to put your designs, you can do so regardless of size and color variety.

All-over printing involves printing your entire garment fabric with your design. If you don’t want to design your clothes, you can always hire a professional or ask a friend to help you out. Just be sure you know what you want and can explain your design to them.
