What is Screen Printing?

Screen printing a design to a T-shirt is done by using a mesh screen along with fabric ink to transfer an image onto the material. Most often, a stencil is made and the ink is pushed around with a squeegee to get into the fabric. By using a stencil, the image can be duplicated for multiple shirts or fabrics. 

Traditionally, a silk screen was used which is how the term “screen printing” came into play. The process is dated back to 960 AD in Asia. It wasn’t until the 1960s that the process was brought to the United States. 

What T-Shirt designs Are Trending?

If you are trying to make a statement, what better way than a custom-designed T-shirt?! We can help you with the design and the screen printing. Here are some things to think about when looking into trendy designs:

  • Minimalist Artwork – Thin-lined designs inspired by blackwork tattoos and natural themes. You can keep thin and create compositions that might resemble a tattoo. Pair with sans serif fonts with natural elements. 
  • Boxed Typography – This design formula is an approachable concept that can help anyone create a cool T-shirt. Pair with an impactful word that encompasses your cause with a fun geometric shape. You can also space out the words inside a geometric shape to make it your own. 
  • Resistance Designs – This allows for creative expression for your own personal views. 
  • Minimalist Phrases – Another technique that keeps is minimal and creating a design that is solely typographical. Create mockups for yourself in various colors and designs to help you decide on the final design. 
  • Detailed Illustrations – This is a popular technique for making yourself a walking billboard for your community or cause. You can make the statement and get the word out for the organization you are trying to help. 
  • Hand-drawn Illustrations – Use your own artwork and handwriting to make your statement. 

These are just some of the trending ideas for the year so far. With the holidays coming up, there are always new designs coming out that make the most popular lists for parties and events. 

Color Trends

When deciding color you want your T-shirt to be, it’s always good to think about the statement you are trying to make. This is also true when choosing the color or colors of the design you are putting on your shirt. There is always the classics, black, white, and gray. You can also choose brighter colors depending on the statement you are trying to make. 

Other colors such as pink, red, yellow, and teal may not be for everyone, but they do appeal to the eye. This is especially true if you are trying to get your shirt noticed. In the fashion world, blue goes with everything, so it is safe to say you can’t go wrong with it. However, to truly make an impact, your design will be what tells your story.
