With the gift giving season coming up, what a fun idea to give each person on your gift a creative T-shirt. The team at TakeHold Printing is available to turn your design into a custom screen printed tee. With so many design ideas, you are sure to come with something all your friends and family will love!

Be Imaginative

One of the first things you need to do is come up with your gift giving list. Have an idea of each person you will be giving a gift to. Know their interests and what kind of designs they like. You can choose something with a phrase or draw out a design with pictures.

As you are looking for designs, come up with a few options to choose from. Then you can do a pre-design layout to get an idea of which ones you like best. Choose designs that speak to each of your gift receivers. This will make your gift the most custom of all. 

Choosing Colors

When you are choosing to gift a T-shirt, you want to come up with a color that everyone will love. Black, white, and gray are always popular color choices for any occasion. You can also add in some colors that your gift receivers love. Show me a person who doesn’t love to receive something that is their favorite color. 

You also need to think about design colors. You wouldn’t want to put a design that has lost of bright colors on top of a brightly colored shirt. Mix it up, and do something subtle on a brighter shirt or visa versa. You can really be the king (or queen) of gift giving if you speak to your recipients’ tastes. 

Photo T-Shirts

Just about every grandma and grandpa in the world love receiving photos of their grandbabies for any occasion. Take it a step further and add those pictures to a T-shirt. You can just about guarantee they will wear that shirt every chance they can. They will be proud to show those babies off. 

You wouldn’t want to go overboard and add say 15 photos on a shirt. Keep it tasteful if that is the case. You can always add an image with the kids’ names for grandma and grandpa. They will love that, too. After all, personalized gifts are the best to receive. 

T-Shirt Styles

There are so many shirt styles on the market from unisex to ladies styles. There are crew neck and V neck as well. You can choose long sleeve or short sleeve and even hoodies styles. What you want to do is really think about the recipient and their taste. 

Another popular style is the baseball tee, also called raglan. You can choose from many colors of sleeves and the body of the shirt is a different color. This is a very popular style in recent years. 

How Does Screen Printing Work?

Once you have chosen a design, it will go to print. For screen printing, a mesh screen is used to transfer the design. High-quality fabric ink is used and the ink is woven into the fibers of the fabric. This gives a vibrant, long-lasting effect for your design. Your gift will last a long time and everytime the recipient wears it, they will remember it coming from you.
