Three Things To Consider When Creating Your Custom Tee

Choosing your t-shirt color can be a fun but overwhelming process. The good news is that our experts can help you navigate the color wheel and create a unique design that will make your t-shirt stand out among the rest. Here's three things to consider when creating your custom tee. 


Your audience

One of the most important things to consider is who will be wearing these t-shirts, why & where. Seasons are great to consider when determining whether you choose short sleeves, long sleeves or even fleece. 

For outdoor events in the heat, a light, breezy color like Vintage White or Light Blue can keep you cool and guarded from those bold rays. If your event is in the summer months, we suggest going with a brighter pop of color for fun and to keep the wearer nice and cool. Mint and Bubblegum are not only popular but are perfect for the sunny season. 

For a company event, we suggest sticking to a neutral color or a color on brand with your company. The makeup of the group can also help determine if you want to purchase unisex or ladies fit t-shirts. Considering your wearers ensures your team will not only look good but they’ll feel good.  



There are so many t-shirt and ink color combinations to choose from. It’s important to consider how many colors are in your design and if they will be dark or light colors. This also helps determine whether you want the design to be bold and pop, or to be more faded and tonal.

If you want a tonal design, we suggest choosing a color that is from the same color family. Getting playful with tones can create a whole new aesthetic. 

If you want the design to pop, consider choosing a color that is either much darker or lighter than your design. Choosing a color at the opposite end of the spectrum can create a bold, complimentary look.

Don’t hesitate to explore color and range. We can work with you to make sure you get exactly what you want. 


Price and Purpose

Just one more thing - consider your price point. If you are looking to order many shirts at the lowest price point possible, a US cotton t-shirt with a one-color design will meet your goals in abundance. If you’re looking for a strong fabric that can withstand the elements as well as the challenges of everyday wear, our triblend or fleece options stay soft wash after wash. No matter what option you choose, we will print your t-shirt at the highest standard, and it will be the best t-shirt for you and those who made it.

Sometimes it can be hard to visualize what your design will look like on the shirt, that is why here at GOEX we provide a digital example before printing. This will help you visualize and determine how your art actually looks on the shirt. Let’s get designing!
