Youth T-shirt

Shirts for toddlers and children ranging from sizes small to XL are considered youth shirts. Whether you are using a round-neck or v-neck T-shirt collar, you can easily decorate it. You can create an estimate of how far the design starts from the edge of the T-shirt.

If you are in the business of shirt printing, it would be more efficient if you have a decal size chart to refer to. You can start by referencing from other sources and build your chart from that.

How do you come up with shirt sayings?

In coming up with a sayings design for shirts, the first step is to know your target market; who are you making the shirt for - children, teens, adults, or seniors? The sayings need to be at the level that your target market understands. If they don’t get the message, why would they buy it, right? The next step is to conceptualize the overall design and turn it into reality by creating it and transferring it to a shirt.

Can I legally use a quote on T-shirts?

When using a quotation on T-shirts, it is best to seek legal advice. It is best that you understand the specifics of copyright law. Generally speaking, quotations can be allowed for use on shirts if the sayings are used for parody or critique.
