Ordering custom t-shirts can be an important task for both providing products for your customers to buy as well as ensuring that your employees have suitable uniforms. In order for you to reduce your chances of encountering problems and complications with your order, there are a few basic custom t-shirt ordering tips that you will want to consider as you prepare to make this purchase.
Avoid Using Low-Resolution Images
For the printer to make your t-shirts, you will need to provide an image. When you are choosing an image for this task, you will want to make sure that you use the highest quality picture that you have available. Low-quality images can result in blurry prints, and some printers may refuse to start your order until you provide a suitable picture. If you will be needing a simple pattern or abstract design printed, you should consider using a vector image, as this type of file will not degrade in the same manner that other image file types will.
Be Mindful Of The Location Of Pockets, Seams, And Buttons
As you are creating or choosing an image for your shirt, you will need to be very aware of where the seams, pockets and buttons will be. Otherwise, you may inadvertently choose a print that will be distorted by these features. If you are unsure of exactly where the seams or pockets will be located, you should order a test shirt. This will allow you to make any needed adjustments to your design before you commit to a large order.
Have A Suitable Storage Area For Your T-Shirts
Failing to properly store your t-shirts can result in them suffering serious damages or other degradations that can make them unusable. In particular, it is common for people to store these garments in areas that experience relatively high humidity. Condensation from the humidity will result in the print starting to peel and crack as well as mold forming on the fabric.
In addition to the humidity levels, you will want to keep the shirts in an area where they will not be exposed to prolonged periods of direct sunlight. Over several weeks, this exposure can lead to bleaching of the fabric and ink. Unfortunately, there are many pests and vermin that may be attracted to these dark areas, and these pests can chew holes in your fabric and leave droppings on your shirts. Therefore, you will want to ensure that you have the storage area regularly treated by a professional exterminator.
After burning through several pairs of cheap earrings, I decided one day that it might be in my best interest to look into buying some better pieces. Instead of visiting little accessory shops, I started saving my money and frequenting high-end jewelry stores. I quickly realized that by investing more money into jewelry, the items would last significantly longer and look a lot better when I wore them. It was amazing to see how much better I looked with the better items. This blog is all about investing in better accessories so that you can take better pictures or enjoy a renewed sense of self.
