Like nearly everything else in the world, the price of clothing has been steadily increasing over the years. This is especially true for popular name-brand apparel such as Abercrombie & Fitch and Juicy Couture. You just know things are getting bad when a basic tee costs $30 or more! Wouldn't it be great if you could make your own t shirts instead of having to buy someone else's stuff? Well, these days you can -- and it's a lot easier than you think.
There are several ways to make your own t shirt, so all you have to do is choose the option that fits your specific needs. If you only need one or two tees, then you should check out a website that specializes in custom apparel products. These sites often have a wide range of plain ringers, jerseys, baby doll, and standard tees that you can have emblazoned with a slogan, photo, artwork, or virtually anything else you want on there. All you have to do to make your own t shirt is select the style you want and then submit your design via email. The store will then apply your design and send you the finished product.
Another way to make your own t shirt is to do everything yourself. This entails quite a bit more work, but can also be more fun and fulfilling. The tools and materials you need in order to make your own t shirt at home are pretty basic, so you'll be able to find them at any crafts store. You can also find a lot of good tutorials on the Internet that will guide you through the process step by step. In addition, when you make your own t shirt at home, you can reuse the stencil and other materials again and again. So once you get the process down pat, you can replenish your wardrobe any time you want.
Not only will you save money when you make your own t shirts, but you might also have a chance to earn some extra cash too. Think about it: once your friends, classmates, or even just random people on the street see you wearing cool clothes that they can't find in any mall, they might start asking you to hook them up. You could definitely get a nice little side business going. Or, you can keep your designs to yourself and let everyone else look upon you with envy!
Either way, you can't go wrong by resolving not to pay outrageous retail prices for clothes that you can produce on your own. I recommend that you try to make your own t shirt at least once. Chances are you'll never want to purchase someone else's design again.
