How to Make T-Shirt Designs : Beginner Tips for Designing T-Shirts


GRACE FRAGA: So, Chantelle, what are some
of the tips that you can give to people that want to make their own T-shirts? CHANTELLE
TIBBS: Don’t give yourself a time limit. Don’t give yourself any kind of limits. Really seriously
sketch something out. You might have the dumbest idea in your mind. Execute it on a piece of
paper and it turns out to be the best thing ever. How many times have you seen a T-shirt
on a hanger and you’re like…? And you see it on somebody else that looks great. So,
remember, there are no boundaries when it comes to stuff like this. It if doesn’t work,
it doesn’t work, so don’t be too hard on yourself. When I first started designing and I started
making T-shirts, I cried, I cried so hard. GRACE FRAGA: Why? CHANTELLE TIBBS: Because
the stuff was bleeding through the stencils. I was–it looked so unprofessional. And then
I realized that–I started doing retail with a bigger company and I was on my hands and
knees holding, you know, a 30-dollar T-shirt that they were bleeding their stencils on
purpose. They were getting it screen printed and making it look like it was handmade. GRACE
FRAGA: Wow. CHANTELLE TIBBS: So, use what you’ve got. Don’t worry about it. Don’t think
too much. Don’t be so critical, because if you’re really passionate about something,
somebody’s going to relate to it. So you keep designing, you keep doing it till it works.
