5 Simple Layouts for T-Shirt Design 🔥Create Shirts that Sell! Tips to go from Beginner to Pro Fast!

You can start your cool T-shirt design for free using either Canva or Placeit or even Envato Elelements. Alternatively, if you prefer using a stand alone software you can download to your computer without eating up your wallet, then, my favorite is Art Text Design for Mac, though you may still use softwares like WordArt or simply check out Envato Marketplace for some cool and affordable products that may be used for the same purpose. You may also use free print-on-demand websites like Teepublic to sell items with your artwork designs printed on them and make some cool money from that.

  1. Your designs look simple and nice. If I do only evergreen, Can it sell? But please do more trend on Redbubble. I am not good for research. So…

  2. I appreciate you man. Good video. I screenshotted the screen so I can have this little graphic by my side when I design. Thanks again. Subbed!!!

  3. Juna, this is awesome! This is what I needed to give my line some darn variety! Thank you so, so much! 💖👍

  4. Got to see your account few days ago and as I go deeper in your video I catch a lot of very useful information that I didn’t get from those who got paid to teach me.
    So just wanted to say thank you very much, I really appreciate that!!

    1. Glad it was helpful! Let me know if there are any specific questions you have. I’ll try my best to answer them

    1. @Detour Shirts I am new this t-shirt design sector. Can you give me any suggestions to develop my design quality?

  5. I’ll be starting this year and have already started building a collection. Some of these ideas I never heard of, thank you for sharing. Subscribed

  6. Thank you Juna! Your advice is invaluable and SO appreciated! I’m a new subscriber from your recent colabs with Ryan Hogue. I’m so happy to have found your channel!

    1. Hmmm…. I’ve bought graphic packs online… from places like Creative Market. I also got graphics from Merch Informer and Placeit.

  7. I usually rely on intuition with layouts but this gave me inspiration! I didn’t realize these were a thing. Thanks for sharing!

  8. DUDE that is sooo gerat. I am from germany and i think this will work on the german market as well. Just started designing two weeks ago, that vid got me the most usefull informations ever! Ceep going man.

  9. Thanks for the video Juna. Do you have any advice on how to lay out text only designs? Mixing curves and arcs and straight lines, sizes, fonts, justification etc for text only? Thanks.

  10. finding this channel is the best thing that happened this month as i got the idea of starting a merch ♡

  11. you were using Affinity? Is that a free software – I’m looking for an alternative to the monthly photoshop fee. Grt video.

  12. Thanks a lot Juna. These were explained well. Thumbs up for sharing your knowledge. You are a very humble man. Keep it going 🙂👍

  13. I learned from this video what I am exactly looking for, now my design process brings me so easy with those layouts, Glad it was helpful!

    1. @Detour Shirts, I am worried about a thing, The thing is, can you clarify to me that could I upload the same design to some other marketplace(like on merch by amazon) if the designs already on redbubble?

      does redbubble and merch by amazon allow it or is it Forbidden??

  14. Bro, thank you so much for sharing what you know without hiding it and for providing great opportunities for rookies like me.

  15. Hello Juna, I’m a beginner, and not a designer, so may I ask you advices to find nice logos to put in shirts. I know freepik for exemple, adobe stock and so but it’s very expensive.
    Thanks and have a good day. Corinne

    1. I actually don’t know much about that… I draw my own but I’ve heard other people use Canva, Placeit or Vexels

  16. I like your videos. Good ideas for my merch framework set.
    Why do you use affinity instead of adobe tools? I thought adobe is better for Designing (yes its expensive..)

    1. Yes… Adobe is slightly better but I was tired of paying the monthly fee… After paying $50 for Affinity I was done…. That was over 2 years ago… I haven’t looked back.. It really is a money decision.

    1. @Detour Shirts sir in case if any doubt i need to clarify how could i reach out to u sir, any contact ????

  17. Thank you for the video. When setting up the products in my shop, I can’t see the kid’s shirts and onesies. How can I see those products so I can correctly place the design and change the color?

    1. Good question! It is hidden under the Standard Print Clothing (The first option). You will need to click edit and then the check in the box under the edit. You will then see all the different styles. Kid’s clothes will be in the list. Part of kids clothes in the onsies… Hope that helps

    1. I do… you don’t have to but just be careful of bright RGB colors they may not show up that way on the print

  18. Juna I was checking out all your stores, looks like you’re not paying much attention to all of them, What the reason of having them then, are you thinking about making some graphic design courses AI, PS, Indesign? And finally thank you for your simple and Effective way of explaining things Juna you’re a humble man

    1. I opened all the stores as a test…. I put a 100 designs or more on them to see if they work for me… So far my top 3 are Merch by Amazon, TeePublic and RedBubble in that order… those get most of my attention….I used to use Adobe products like AI,PS and InDesign but I switch about 2-3 years ago to Affinity to save some money… not sure when I will go back… Thank you for you questions and you are very welcome

  19. Hey Juna, so this happens every Merch payout cycle, but say for my previous month in Nov earning it says I made around 23 bucks but I recently got a message that said I will only be getting 18 something dollars? This happens where ill get either a little more or a little less of what it says I earned the previous month on my Pretty Merch? I was thinking this could be returns? but I thought that money was counted that in? Thanks

    1. Merch can only give you an estimate at the end of the month…. Over the next few couple weeks, this total changes because of returns, cancellations, payments didn’t clear, etc. Usually it’s less than what you monthly estimate is… but sometimes it’s more….I love it when it’s more.

  20. hey, great video.
    i like your hat by the way. did you order it from printful or printify or just a local printing shop?

    1. I got it from Printful… I actually wanted a bigger design but that’s the biggest Printful could do… I might have to check printify if they have one

  21. This was so useful and so well done! It’s cool that you went the extra mile to add plenty of examples (including your own) and mention extra tips like which template suits which kind of phrases best. Quality content 👏🔥

  22. I never seen this kind of video before,easily the best on POD,unlike another “POD gurus” who just being repetitive n only talk about basic stuff without really showing how it’s done.you’re unique n always give valuable content.keep these videos coming.

  23. Another awesome video from you man!! Thank you so much! This is helping me alot as I’m a beginner in digital art.

  24. thanks Juna, this is helpful. I gave not only a thumbs up but I watched all the ads that came up and there were a lot of them!

    1. You’re so welcome! Yes… T-Shirt design is a little different than just graphic design… Glad I could help

  25. Great video. As always, really useful design advice with real examples. I appreciate the time you take with these videos!

  26. Thanks so much for these tips. I love how you used the templates to create designs for your recommended trending designs. =

  27. Juna, your videos always make me smile. The content is just so valuable! I’d love for you to do a whole course on Designing for Non-Designers. Take my money!

  28. Videos like this, where you share you experience and knowledge on design, make you stand out from other POD youtubers. Keep up the good work! 👍

    1. @Detour Shirts Totally agree Nino. Love these type of design videos they are super helpful. Keep em coming please.

  29. How merch informer works. They show that they are only 71 results and Amazon shows 133 results. Which data is the right one? Or how to understand this?

  30. Thank you, your videos are amazing and slowly but steadily helping me, earn some money. Ty

  31. Hi Juna, do you ever use anything other than affinity designer? I mainly use procreate and cant figure out how to arch the text, haha

  32. Thank you for articulating these templates in this manner. You give so much value on your channel! I’m a relatively new subscriber, and I can’t tell you how much I have learned in the couple of months I’ve followed you. Thanks again!

  33. How wise it is to use software to upload designs on multiple sites etc.. Rb MBA, Zazzle.. and how do you manage to do on so many platforms?

  34. Great video and will play around with these for practice on older designs that people seem to look at but don’t buy. Maybe there is still time to salvage some of my Q4. Thanks again for the tips.

  35. Juna. Thanks for sharing your graphic design knowledge, keen eye, font recommendations and trend ideas as always.

  36. Thank you so much, Juna! We’ve all seen these kinds of designs a billion times before but actually seeing these so simplified really helps a lot!

  37. Yeesh I can’t believe it, I honestly did the last two designs same niches after watching your last trend video (minus the est bit). Imma pull em and change em.

  38. Thanks for sharing. I do most of these but never thought of it in a systematic way. Will keep these handy for reference.

  39. Hi Juna
    How do you create that Vintage & Grunge Effect like the CALIFORNIA t-shirt and the TRUMP with the American flag t-shirt using Affinity Designer? Can you please make a tutorial

  40. I can’t Express how grateful I am for this.
    😨 I am a patterns person but I know text based designs sells. So thank you soooo very much!!🙏🙏🙏

  41. That’s awesome thanks for showing this
    It was very helpful tho I haven’t tried the
    Athletic layout yet so I’m gonna see what I
    Can do. The top 3 other position I use them
    often. Lastly – Text on the right just started
    Using this in a few designs I’ve made but it’s
    Mostly without any art on the right or left. It’s
    Mostly text.

  42. Your videos are very inspiring and informative. I am learning and hope for positive outcomes. Can you suggest pricing products for beginners?

    1. For RedBubble I would do 40%…. For Amazon I like $17.99 – $19.99 for standard shirts… Make sure you are getting at least 3.50 per sale… You should probably be closer to $5 per sale if you can.

  43. Man ! You’ve outdone yourself……AGAIN !!

    If THAT doesn’t help your users sell more…I don’t know what will !!

    Being a Graphic Designer…this is THE best concise explanation on how to present Designs.

    Well done !

    1. It’s all personal preference.. But basically you want bold fonts that are easy to read… Condensed fonts for long words.. Wider fonts for short words.

  44. Your allignment of text and the clipart added is so well portrayed…loved it❤️when i make tshirt designs i see your videos and follow every step again and again it really helps me👍

  45. Thank you. This is helpful..I have gotten tired of all the “non gurus” that are just giving bad advise….I have unsubscribed them

    1. I agree! Others just babble about their opinions and themselves seeking subscribers. Juna is so specific and incredibly generous with his graphic design knowledge, keen eye, sharing fonts and trend ideas. Amazing!

  46. And by the way… I loved how you added the icons illustrating a simplified version of the distribution and the names you used 🙂.

  47. Juna, do you sell on Etsy. They seem to be out of shirts everyday. Which is so strange since it is an on demand business. I need to try a new system.

    1. That’s why I use printify, if one provider cannot fulfill the order the order is automatically rerouted to another that can.

    2. Etsy is not POD. The items on there (that are not hand made)are usually fulfilled by another company like Printful. Printful are known for their distribution problems especially at this time of the year. Add the pandemic to the mix and need I say more!

  48. Hahahaha you saying “one thing I noticed is that a lot of you just put text on t-shirts” literally just when I was doing exactly that is so funny 😂. Thanks for the video, it was so useful for me. Honestly 😀
