  • Best program for T-shirt design?

    I want create a design for a T-shirt, what is the best program to do so? I used photoshop, but i heard it is not the best program for it. Also is it possible to print it off photoshop anyway? Should it be 300 dpi? 8 x 11 inches? Any help would be great thanks!

    all the T shirt designers i have come across use Illustrator or Freehand (but mostly Illy)

      once you get into CMYK images and line screens you start to get real expensive.
      You need to find a T-shirt printer first and get the specifications for artwork from them. Work with them and they will work with you.

      PrintDriver is a large format digital print dude. His advice/opinions may not apply to the 4color/offset/web world of printing

        if you want to use photoshop and not pay for full color, you can print an image using spot colors. also consider a colored t-shirt as part of the design. i saw a dark blue tshirt with a sunset on water scene printed in gold that looked great.

        check with the screen printer as to what line screen they use. a 60 dpi 10x13 is a lot faster to save than a 300 dpi image. if you use more than one ink color, i'd shy away from duotones. you can specify separate elements in your image with different colors.

          Weeellllll, the thought did occur to me but I didn't really feel like having to defend the content as well as the design.

          But why are you doing that print screen thing and pasting into photoshop? If it's anything like a screen capture, it is low resolution and not in any kind of format that you want to be printing.
