Just Before You Get Started
Even though it would be tempting to start right into the process of creating your clothes, there are three stages that should be completed before you even begin. Before designing your Christian t shirts, give some of these choices some thought. Doing so will assist your design process, and setting up your campaign will go more smoothly and with less stress.
Set Your Goals
It is crucial to have a clear concept of what you want to achieve with your t-shirt campaign before you begin work on the design of your t-shirt, as this will help guide your efforts. What is the most important objective of your campaign to sell Christian apparel? Are you attempting to raise a specific quantity of money for a certain cause or requirement? Oder wollen Sie so viele Shirts wie möglich verkaufen, um Aufmerksamkeit für eine Sache zu erregen oder um Ihre Marke zu propagieren? All you want to do maybe design a shirt that everyone in your neighborhood will think looks amazing.
Having a main goal in mind can be beneficial when choosing your t-design shirts and the pricing at which they will be sold. First, you should choose your objectives, and only then should you start thinking about what you want to write on your t-shirt.
Brainstorm Creative Elements
Spend some time considering whether phrases, images, or other elements, such as logos or colors, should be used in the design of your clothing. Having a list of criteria around your design is necessary to have a starting point when you begin the creative process. If you do not have a list of guidelines, it is important to create one. Additionally, it will help you ensure that everything is on the shirt that you need it to be, which is very important if you are sewing apparel for a certain event or cause and need to ensure that everything is on the shirt.
Gather Design Inspiration
Now comes the exciting step: start collecting ideas for your design. Gather examples of t-shirt designs that appeal to you and use them to guide your decision on the aesthetic direction you want to go with your creation.
When you have a selection of three to five designs that excite you, make some notes on what it is about each one that draws your attention. Is there a particular kind of artwork or typeface that you have in mind that you would want to use? Is there a particular combination of ink colors that keeps drawing your attention?
Decide Who’s Designing Your Christian Tee
Once you have a clearer picture of how you want your personalized shirt to appear, the next step is to choose the person responsible for bringing your t-shirt design to reality. There are three different approaches to getting Bonfire to create your shirt for you:
Designing an awesome T-Shirt Yourself
Let us use our imaginations! Take some time to think about the different components that will make up your design before you hop onto your computer to start developing your design. This will help you avoid making mistakes when designing your design.
Decide Your Design Placement
When determining where to print on your shirt, you have a few distinct alternatives to choose from, all of which are worth considering. Your design may be printed large and in the middle, or it can be printed smaller and placed on the shirt’s top right side as a “pocket print.” You can print a more compact design on the front of your shirt while opting to print a more detailed design on the reverse. If you want your design to have a more dynamic appearance, you could even have some fun by printing it out to the left or right of the center of your shirt.
A printable area box is made available to sellers which immediately translates to the screens utilized throughout the printing process. You may fill up this rectangular printed space to get the maximum feasible print size, or you can reduce the size of your design to achieve a lesser print size.
The largest piece of artwork that can print is 11.5 inches by 14 inches. These measurements correspond to the size and proportions shown in our design tool for the “printable area.” The design that you choose for your campaign will be printed using the same screen regardless of the size or type of product you want to use for it. This helps to keep expenses to a minimum.
Choose Your Christian T-Shirt Colors
The color of the t-shirt you decide to print on will significantly impact many of the decisions you make when designing the Christian t-shirt that you want to print on. Knowing the colors of the goods you want to print on before you begin the design process can save you some time in the long run. It will also help you choose which ink colors to use so that your design & text stand out on your shirt when it is printed if you know them before you start the design process.
Black, dark heather grey, & midnight navy were the three hues of t-shirts sold on Bonfire that were bought the most often during the last year. Therefore, while considering what colors of clothing you want to utilize, you may want to have the consideration above in mind.
Add Visuals & Graphics
Regarding existing creative assets like company logos and marketing graphics, custom clothing is an excellent area to reuse and repurpose. A good many of these materials already have artwork, typography, and color palettes that are likely to connect with your audience. If you are designing custom shirts for your company or group, maintaining consistency requires using the same logo and color scheme across all your designs.
The national organizers of the March for Science created the first March for Science shirt, which can be seen on the left. The shirt contained the organization’s emblem. When sister marches started designing their cool Jesus shirts they used the logo’s colors and emblem as a point of departure. Still, they customized the designs to be appropriate for their particular geographical location and audience. Local organizers were given the creative flexibility to produce designs relevant to local audiences and rich in contextual information while maintaining a coherent appearance by retaining the atom logo and the original color scheme. This was made possible by the atom.
Before you begin creating a shirt for a new company, grassroots movement, or personal fundraising with no preexisting assets, do some research on the common themes, passions, or hobbies that bind your network together.

If you are having trouble conceiving a method to visually portray your brand, cause, or company on a t-shirt, typography can be a good place to begin your search for a solution. The increased interest in your shirt that will result from using both attractive and relevant words in the design will lead to an increase in the number of sales you make. Without the need for pricey design software, anybody can easily make a cool design for a faith based t-shirt using typographic layouts, which are becoming more popular.
If you are having difficulties coming up with anything, consider what your audience has in common. You may already have a phrase or a word in mind that will resonate with your audience. Create a design that incorporates pertinent sayings or slogans that will help to foster a feeling of community around the subject matter of the shirt. Create a work of art out of simply these words by using different fonts on your shirt, or combine your phrase with additional design elements and photos to make a more comprehensive artwork.
Over 170 free t-shirt typefaces are included in our t-shirt design tool, which may be used to help you create something that is really one of a kind. There is an infinite number of unique fonts that can be downloaded for free from the internet, and our design tool may not have what you are looking for if you can not find the right one for your shirt. You may even build your own fonts and text to use in your design if you are in the creative mood to do so by hand drawing them.
Select Ink Colors
When producing your own t-shirt, choosing the colors to use in the design is vital. When printing on dark shirts, always use lighter ink colors; when printing on light shirts, always use darker ink colors. This is the greatest rule of thumb. This produces a contrast between the print and the shirt itself, which will cause your design to “pop” more than it would otherwise. Although it is possible that putting black ink on a black shirt is becoming more popular with certain demographics, the vast majority of customers would be dissatisfied if they could not see the design printed on the t-shirt it was produced on.
White ink is simple to use and displays well on various shirt colors. If, on the other hand, you wish to experiment with additional colors in your design, you should investigate complimentary colors, which, when combined, provide an appealing visual effect. If you want to optimize your earnings and produce a clear and clean design, we suggest utilizing three colors or fewer.
