How To Design a T shirt Graphic In 5 Minutes In Adobe Photoshop

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. Is the class useful if I’ve never used Illustrator before? I have used it but have zero idea on what I’m doing. I’m more of a Lightroom guy for my photography.

  1. Wow your video was so instructive! Thank you. But you don’t have to do it in 5’ just make it in 10’ so we don’t have run so fast. Keep your excellent job.

  2. After creating our mock up in photoshop, in what format do we save it as in order to upload it to our online platform. In my case, Shopify.

  3. Where do you or anybody else on here find pictures or logos to use for free, and without having to worry about copyright issues and all of that stuff?

  4. While it can technically be called t-shirt design, this video doesn’t have any of that real personal touch that artists usually include on their merchandise and everything else. This video feels more like a false advertisement, if anything, especially since none of the VEXEL designs are free to use, like you stated.

  5. Hello. I created my own design. How would I be able to save this in order to upload to my Etsy shop? I’m having a hard time doing so. Once I upload my image to Etsy, it seems blurry and low pixels. Thank you

  6. I do not have the lasso tool or polygonal tool on the side bar in AI 2020. I can’t believe I am having such a hard time figuring out how to trace an object to cut. So easy in Gimp. But not in AI! I joined Vexels and can’t seem to use the designs. Maybe an updated vid would be good.. for 2020 users. Looks like a great tutorial.. I just don’t have those tools:(

    1. Oh! I found it. Turns out if you signed up as a “beginner” they hide those tools. So I found out you just hit “restore tools” and then it shows them all. Weird.

  7. My apologies for the silly question but Is vexels free for commercial use? can I make a design using a vexel image and then put it on teespring or redbubble to sell?

  8. Yeah, but who the heck is going to buy that LOL Plus I don’t think Vexel art is F2U for commercial stuff bro

    1. @Charley Pangus Maybe you didn’t say it was okay to sell, but it did come across like you were implying that it was… And also, what’s the point of this tutorial then? If this isn’t showing how to make a “good” design nor one that can actually be used for anything (legally); then what’s the point of making it? Sorry I’m just confused by this…

    2. Dude this is just a tutorial not for someone to buy it and 2nd I never said this was ok to print for resale unless you own rights to the graphic.

  9. Sorry I have to do this to you but that is not designing a t-shirt, that’s rehashing old material. You take someone else’s design and you throw it on a t-shirt lol come on.

    1. Charley Pangus not trying to gang up on you homie, but the fact of the matter is that you did a lazy design…. I’m hoping that you’ve added your own art work and touch to the clients you’ve done work for

    2. Clint S. Still designing a t-shirt. I’ve been doing this for 12 years and worked with big brands, companies and musicians so I would know.

    3. Clint S. Agreed. But on the other hand it doesn’t look as bad as the absolute shite that can be found over at;

      r/streetwearstartup

      I looked through and half the work is so scruffy, tacky and tasteless. I mean I’m not sure where half the stuff would actually cut the mustard.
      They’re all pretentious on there using some seriously weird kind of pseudo speak
      “Oh man that is hard, it’s so fire I would totally fuck wit dat, if you drop rn I will totally cop”

      It’s painful.

      However that all said, I’m in agreement with you over taking a design and just rehashing it as in this video.

      Timeless, clean and simple designs that follow the theme of a brand I’ll always work and won’t lose their appeal.

  10. Cans someone answer my question please
    When I put in an image on to tee spring from the internet it says image quality poor and it will only work if it is super super small until I can complete the order

  11. Charley, you’re super talented, but just admit it — this is strictly a money post. I hope Vexels paid you a lot for it because it kinda hurts your credibility. It wouldn’t be so bad if you presented the video as a Vexels thing, but you went for the clickbait instead. Bad.

  12. Images on Vexels are not free of copyright. You have to look for public domain or CC0 licence images to have the legal right to print tshirts.

  13. I don’t think those designs are free to use on t-shirt that you want to sell on Amazon or eBay.
    Can you confirm that if I’m right, please

  14. Thank you very much this is very helpful as is the case in your other videos that I watched. I have a line I’m working on and one of the marketing tools I want to utilize would be working with influencers such as yourself if you would be interested

    1. @Charley Pangus I only just found you but did see one of your illustrator vids as well. Do you have a video that goes into that then? Because vector stuff like this design is what illustrator is for. So I’m just a little surprised to see you did that in photoshop. Not saying you can’t because clearly you can.

    2. tmotten you haven’t watched my new videos obviously lol. I use illustrator for all of my merch designs now.

  15. Sir I want to join your class there is two options which one is best for me as I know basic of photo shop and ai I want to create my own design please suggest me thanks Tanveer from India

  16. I dont think you can sell this design as the free vector you took makes up the majority of the design. If its less than 50% its ok but anymore than that is a big nono.

    1. @Rob Ely ive looked at their subscription plans and for 6.75 a month its actually a pretty good deal.

      They allow 200 downloads a month, thats 200 designs you can upload to print on demand sites.

      Good stuff, I might actually use it. The only worry is what if theres already people using the same vectors on your pod platform?

    2. If you look at their site you can buy it for $5 or its included in subscription to Vexels.. You can use if you buy it. Thats how they stay in business..

  17. What’s the best way to save a screenshot or a still from a movie? I want to be able put that picture (screenshot/still) on to a t-shirt. How do I get the best quality screenshot?

  18. I would like to see you explain file formats for t-shirts. That would be really helpful to squeeze that into your videos.

    1. I debated on even commenting back on your post because it’s simply not accurate. I’m showing people who are beginners how to find resources and add their own touches to them. That is creating. I have 12 years of experience in the field so I would know. Stop hating.

  19. Excellent tutorial! I learned a few new shortcut keys for text. And speaking of which, a suggestion: display the shortcut keys onscreen, plse. It really helps the viewers

    1. Done fast when you import someone else artwork that actually took the time to create it. Copy and Paste, then add text. Of course that’s fast. Not saying I’ve not done the same due to work loads, but but what’s the point of downloading a vector and then bringing it into a raster program like Photoshop just open the illustrator and do it right. 😂

    1. Jamie Russ you must have no eyes AND no ears! Did u see the same vid as i? I mean go to minute 1.15 min and open your dam ears and eyes. And if thats no helping, read the comments. Dam xD

  20. Someone has an amazon merch class on skillshare and they used this exact t-shirt design in the tutorials…aaand i’m guessing it’s not you.

  21. Hello. I just saw your video and i like this design a lot. Where can i contact you for some questions about it?

  22. I think the Vexels license only applies to work authored by LogoOpenStock, VectorOpenStock & Vexels. You might want to get clarification from Vexels before using work from third-party authors like this on commercial or items-for-sale projects. Unfortunately a lot of the great artwork on Vexels is third-party.

  23. I was wondering if we have to buy photoshop to design shirts! I’ve been thinking about buying a shirt press thing to start an Ebay store!

    1. Oh shit I thought this was Gimp since I searched how to design in GIMP. YouTube search engine did me wrong. No wonder it looks different than my version.

  24. Does your image have to be saved as vector or can it be saved as ping if you’re designing a t-shirt design?

    1. Charley Pangus thank you Charley I have been relying on your videos to help me make my designs, you’re really talented. I made 2 designs but I can not upload them on printify. I’ll keep trying thanks for the reply. Cheers

    2. +Dude Next Door it would normally be saved as a PSD, Or PNG. It really depends on what the print shop wants.

  25. This is wrong, as here is why. There is a a big chunk of text on vexels website that states ” These materials may not be copied for commercial use, reverse engineered, decompiled, or disassembled, nor may these materials be modified, reposted to other websites, framed, deep linked to, or otherwise redistributed in any form unless written approval is obtained from the right holders and/or their representatives. ” So by doing this you are showing people how to take other artists work and profit by doing a 5 minute job.

    1. @hUmPeR bUmP rUmpLe TiPs I mean you and I both know that people aren’t going to subscribe the websites like Vexels in order to do this the right way, but I understand that some people are not that great at making their own vectors.

    2. Dude this is so far from what I was doing lol. You are blowing it out of proportion. You can purchase a subscription with Vexels to gain full rights to use their vectors, most vector resource websites work the same way. I never promote stealing peoples artwork to use for personal financial gain. I simply showed people that they can use Vexels to download vectors without having to draw.

    1. jason pickens if it’s open source then yes if not then no and if you can’t find is the image open source or not it provably isn’t

    1. +doe .s you can if you wanted to. A lot more people use Photoshop which is the reason I chose to use it for this tutorial.

  26. how you get this printready? like there are many colored layers.. if u send it to a printshop they need it seperated.. is there like an hotkey or something which seperated it in layers or something?

    1. Papa Punchline to make this printready, I used Adobe Illustrator and then after the designing was done, converted into PNG after ‘expanding’ the artwork. Dats it.

    2. Hi Charlie, I’m matias from Spain. I am creating a lot of designs but I do not know where I can print them, nor do I know what kind of shirt is the best for my business to be profitable. Do you have any idea?
