Hi guys,
Do you have any advice how to make this type of 90s designs for tshirts?
How to get this color effect etc.?

Design in Photoshop and use Layer FX on everything (eg gradient fills, bevel&emboss, inside/outside glows, shadows, strokes…)

That’s a bit like asking how to paint a car. On one hand it can be boiled down to “apply paint to car,” but on the other hand, there are many steps that require in-depth knowledge and artistic application of the various tools and techniques required.

If you’re asking about a specific aspect of an example, please re-ask with focus on that aspect.

Lot of Adjustment Layering and Layer blend modes happening in there too.

A lot of the ‘effects’ on the photos and other halftones is down to the adjustments necessary for screenprinting. In litho print, commonly the dot gain is 5-8% depending on the paper, which means anything below a 5% dot can disappear, and anything over 93% can fill in, especially in 4 colour printing.
In screenprinting, your range is commonly 15-85%.
