 Embroidered T-Shirt Is an Ideal Vehicle to Convey Your Messages

We all need a t-shirt to wear. If you’ve ever felt like the messages on your shirt could be so much more than “the world is your oyster” or “I love my mom,” then this blog post is for you. Rather than settling for the pre-made options at a cotton shop, you can design an embroidered t-shirt from scratch!

Using these pictures as inspiration, we'll walk you through how to make an embroidered tee your own with just a few clicks of the mouse. Your next t-shirt will be custom made and perfect for any occasion: winning band competitions, singing karaoke, or going out with friends. Click around these pictures and learn a few new tricks.

Pre-production of your design and sample fabrics:

1) The first thing you need is a photograph of the image you want on your shirt. All of our shirts are flexible due to their use in various situations like school, work, or play. However, we will show you how to take a picture of the image you want on your shirt. If this is your first time, here’s a few tips:

a) Keep in mind that a photo of the garment should be 2.5 inches wide by 3.5 inches tall at its tallest (that means for example that your logo should not be less than three inches tall).

b) You can go with a black and white or color background, but if possible then make sure it's high quality and professional. This photo will become the foundation of what's going to be repeated over and over again (the same thing for all future items/shirts). It makes sense to have it printed on 8.5 x 11 or 11 x 17 paper.

c) If you have a hard time getting the white color you want, try using a black background instead.

2) Once you have your picture, go to [Black White T-Shirt] and choose one of the templates. You will see it in the background. It can be in black or white so we recommend these colors for you to get the best results. There are also separate template colors for shirts that have logos on them (see point b), but we will take care of those as well. For this example, we will use the following template for this design: [Classic Shirt-No Design]

3) Now you will need to pay attention to the sample fabric. You can choose any color you want, but as a reference we recommend one of these fabrics: [Embroidered T-Shirt Fabric Black] or [Embroidered T-Shirt Fabric White]. They are called 'Super 150s'. They are suitable for custom embroidery and have very little shrinkage. We used these fabrics because our sample pictures are made of it too. You can go with any cotton or polyester blend as long as it is comfortable and doesn't stretch or shrink after washing.

Tip: You can draw the design you want with a pen and then take a picture of it with your phone, tablet or digital camera. If you want, use a white sheet for the background so that the image is more visible.

If your design includes colors (e.g., green, blue, yellow) that are not present in the sample fabric we are providing for you to work with, then choose another cotton shirt with colors similar to those in your design (you could use [Vintage T-Shirt Fabric Black] or [Vintage T-Shirt Fabric White]). Then you will need to Buttons personalize them using our buttons feature.


Insert all of the items that you have purchased into your shopping cart. You will be able to finalize the order when you're finished.

4) In order to make sure your design fits on a traditional t-shirt, you will also need to choose one of the [Classic T-Shirt Templates]. These are shirts that have a white background and usually white sleeves. There are five to choose from: [Classic Shirt], [Classic Mens Tee], [Classic Plus Size Mens Tee], [Classic Sport White Sleeve T-Shirt] and [Classic Colorful Sleeve T-Shirt]. They come in sizes ranging from XS - 3XL so they should work for most people.
