We're going to walk you through some of the fundamentals that will help you navigate the design and printing process. We'll cover the things you need to know to design T-shirts from smaller runs all the way up to as many as 5,000.

Everything matters, from the color space you're going to work in, to the software you'll be using, to the inks.
Even the colors and the fabric of the shirt itself. If you start off strong, production will be effortless, or close to it. Now get ready, 'cause it's T-shirt time.
