Printing t-shirts can be one way to promote your business. By applying a few simple rules, you can save on the cost of printing. Here's how.
1. T-shirts tend to be expensive in small amounts. If you're planning on printing in large quantities, buy shirts in bulk that you can use for different print runs to keep your per shirt cost down.
2. Keep design colors to a minimum. The more colors you print on t-shirts, the more money you'll spend. When designing graphics and text, keep in mind a two-color shirt can be substantially cheaper than a four-color shirt.
3. Make use of the white space. Rather than adding another color for text, consider using the white of a t-shirt (or other colored tee) as your text.
4. Use standard colors as opposed to custom colors whenever possible. Custom colors tend to be more expensive than standard colors.
