3 Things To Consider Before Ordering Custom Screen Printed Shirts

Ordering custom screen printed shirts is a great way to stand out at your next corporate event, birthday party, merch table, or other event. Their unique, stunning designs and colors stand out against the backdrop of the mundane everyday t-shirt. Of course, ordering custom shirts can be a bit of a pain if you don’t know where to start. Thankfully, the Liberated Images team has put together the three most important questions you should ask yourself before placing a custom screen printed shirts order.

What Are Your Shirts For?

It may seem ridiculous, but this is likely one of the most important questions you’ll have to ask yourself before placing your custom tshirt order. Your shirt serves a distinct purpose. Whether it be highlighting your brand as the uniform for your employees, drawing your team together in unity while wearing the shirt together at a team building event, or even showcasing your bands tour dates, each one does something different. Both the intended wearer and their prospective audience will influence your shirt’s messaging, design, color, fabric, etc.

Once you’ve established a clear idea of what your custom screen printed shirts are for, you can move forward with your order!

How Many Do You Need And What Sizes?

Unless you know exactly how many people will be attending an event/will be purchasing your shirt, it can be incredibly frustrating ordering not enough or too many custom screen printed shirts. Keep in mind that screen printing benefits from larger batch orders. Unless you have a very specific amount of people attending, it’s a good idea to order in large batches as you’ll benefit from lowered pricing per shirt.

Likewise, not having enough of one size and too much of another can be equally frustrating. If ordering for a specific amount of people, simply get everyone’s exact shirt size. If ordering for a giveaway, merch table, or other event where you aren’t sure the exact amount, try to secure a sound estimate for the amount of people attending, or have them include their shirt size when RSVPing online.

Is Your Design Ready?

Naturally, the largest piece of the puzzle for your custom shirt order is the design itself. The design you choose should be based entirely on your audience’s tastes and mutual interests. This ensures their enjoyment with your shirt and continued wear over the years. A design that doesn’t match the energy of your audience can fall flat. Things to consider include:

  • Your audience’s taste in humor
  • The setting where your shirts will be handed out
  • Logos and preexisting designs
  • Your audience’s age

With these in mind, you can nail the design for your custom screen printed shirts!
