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. I have screen printing business but I having trouble create my artwork, software and printer. I have someone creating artwork but charges too much.

  1. I’ve got only one word for this video bro: AWESOME !!!
    btw is that Garyvee’s signature on your tshirt ?? peace 🙂

  2. To use these images we should have an extended license (paid)…we cannot use as free on t shirt ??
    even you modify the original image we cannot sell them. am I right

  3. The only problem every youtuber designer makes is missing starts(artboard type) and ends (exporting design ).

  4. How do I drag photo into my work space. When ever I do try it doesn’t show up or shows up as a line with the blue squares around it

  5. Very helpful 🤘🏼 But dang, you talk too fast and moving too fast. I mean its not you. Its me because I’m hard of hearing and slow disability. So I’m learning how to this and want my own logo for selling t-shirt online.

  6. So i actually have a graphic, but idk how to edit it / upload it properly from my computer. any knoweledge on this?

  7. Great video! but just a little feedback, for a beginner like me you’re speaking too fast and didn’t provide clear instructions/guide on how did you arrange your AI workspace/layout, where to find buttons/tabs/menus that you use in this video, etc because mine is 90% different from you. Also, are you using MAC/Windows? stuff like that.

  8. everytime I search about PS or illustrator, I end up on your i guess I’ll just subscribe. It’s destiny.

    1. my space bar broken🤣🤣just kidding, but if the video too fast, just slow down the video or press more space bar to stop the video

  9. Hey Leute, ein bisschen Werbung in eigener Sache. Wir versuchen momentan Fuß zu fassen in der Textilindustrie und verkaufen hochwertige Blanks aus Portugal an aufstrebende Designer. Wenn ihr Interesse habt, checkt doch einfach mal unser Instagram. @mjgn_lux

  10. Yo, what’s up y’all! Check my Clothing Brand on facebook. Hierarchy Co. The one with the triangle Logo! I’ve been really passionate about it and decided to try it. I was just starting. Any help will be much appreciated, designs are coming out soon! LET’S ALL RISE TOGETHER 🔥

  11. You are amazing BUT, the fake act at the beginning pissed me off so bad xD, if I wasn’t a returning viewer I would’ve walked away xD

  12. I already made a design, now i just need to figure out how to buy bulk shirts can you do a tutorial on that?
    also I phrased that wrong i meant how do i buy multiple copies of my shirts so i can sell them?

  13. Thanks Charley, absolutely fantastic tuts. I love how it is fast and to the point. Congrats on a job well done

  14. I like how you structured the video around the fundamentals but do you know anything about trapping for making T designs for the film color separations? If so, I’d love to hear about that in this series. I’m needing some help in that arena.

  15. Good video, learn something new today, the only thing mate, instead of telling beginners to press shift + command + c and all of these keys , you should actually press the keys remember beginners, including my self lol, but overall good video thanks for sharing your ideas

  16. Sir you did lovely work but you work and speak fast whic is difficult to understand for those who have english as secondry language.

  17. bro bro bro!
    How can a person so perfect. You are awesome with your words. I just loved your work. Love from Pakistan.
    Hope I gonna learn a lot from you. Thanks for this basic tutorial🤞

  18. You need to have a membership on Freepik to use their artwork for commercial purposes without having to give attribute to the artist or the site.

  19. U R Killin’ It! Def agreed on the highly caffeinated thing! U have a great attitude also man, I appreciate what you share.

  20. What a good video!!! I blame you, because of you I’m going tommorow for books about Adobe and i just love Illustrator now. I cannot stop watching your videos, you are so carismatic person and coofe aiddictive to.

  21. Loved your Video, u made designing super easy and understandable, unlike other designers. Looking forward to your more Lessons !! Love from India !!! Awesome tutorial

  22. You must have been watching over my shoulder as I was wrestling with my illustrator program yesterday to have this video come up first on my suggest list this morning. This is a great video. Thank you.

  23. awesome tutorial… helped a lot… 1 ques as a newbie …why can’t I separate 1 lion from the picture ?… please help….. 🙂

  24. Yo man salute to you, This is a sick video your explanation is great and showing us the buttons helps aswell. Would love more videos on how you use adobe illustator! Trying to learn off youtube but so hard dieing to learn how to do emblems/designs & vector etc.

  25. Not too fast. At all. You could go faster if you’d like. As fast as you want this was so dope. Bro this was awesome. Subscribed. Thumbs up. But most importantly… Well done. 👍🏼

  26. Not sure if this is the place to ask, but say I had a picture of somebody in a submission hold and I wanted to replace the two in the pic with like Iron Man and Captain America. How would I do that?

  27. Could you do a video on how you got the file on illustrator and how you took the white background off please? I love your videos you’re a lifesaver for these videos!!

  28. So helpful. Love your energy and passion! Got my graphic design degree 20 yrs ago. this is such a great refresher!

  29. Published on my birthday, and yeah this is what I’m looking for! Thanks a lot, I will start a new religion in your honor!

  30. Thanks bro for the tutorials. I’m currently shifting to freelancing and I planned to watch almost all your videos to be a great graphic designer. Godbless. Wishing more blessings for you.

  31. I can’t resize kerning of text from both side that you do 6.31 min……….i use illustrator 2018. Can you plz help me.

  32. Thanks Fam, can’t even sum up how this 10mins change my whole life. Thanks, keep up the excellence.

  33. Dude. I studied digi art in college some 9 years ago. The lectures were basically like what you do (follow along with the teacher) I got pretty smart quick and was able to do my own stuff pretty quick…then after the year was over I went into industrial work and barely touched a PC for years. Thanks to your videos I’ve been able to re-jog my memory and save my band a tonne of money because I’m able to do the artwork. I’ve lurked your channel for a few years but think it’s time to say you are appreciated dude. Take care

  34. Thank you ! Been wanting to make some tees but kept failing. Thanks again. Subbed. Also shooting a canon 80d and just picked up a sigma 18-35 art

  35. That baseline shift trick for adjusting the type on a path is gonna save me so much time. I’ve been resizing the circles and type this whole time :/

  36. Like your style dude! Anyway, it’s okay if you make it a lil’ bit too fast, but don’t forget to mention the shortcut you used. Keep sharing. Peace.

  37. Hi Charley, the picture licence is “Free for commercial use with attribution required.” How to do the attribution?
    I’m beginner, please answer.

  38. Great I learned a lot from you, I have a question, do you have courses you can sell online? You seem to enjoy what you do, and know how to teach it. Thank you

  39. Absolutely fantastic tutorial dude, very easy to follow along, I have just one question, what if you want your font to be inside of the circle instead of on the baseline ? this would really help.

  40. how do you guys resize with your mouse? I can’t do that, it always moves the image or whatever it is that I am trying to resize

  41. I couldn’t take my eyes of that tshirt your wearing…that design is simple but so beautiful…love it ❤🇿🇦💖

  42. Hey nice Videos! I was trying to create some Logos too! But i only use Gimp. I dont want to buy adobe with these monthly costs. Any other good Programms out there?

  43. I’ll be 100% honest I’ve never commented before on a video, until now. Your video has taught me hidden gems that I never knew before even with 5 years plus of design experience. Love the relaxed way you make your tutorials. Keep up the good work.

  44. This was brilliant, looking forward to the rest of the series. How often are you going to release them Charley?

  45. Really helpful, Charley. Thanks for posting this. I have a feeling your vids are going to have a positive impact on my business!

  46. Awesome video! Simple but catching design. You were going a little too fast but i got the idea. Looking forward to more videos 👍🏾👍🏾

  47. LOVE_LOVE_LoVE the way you are creating, your designe thinking and how you are explaine and show us cool tulse! THANKS! LIKE x 10000! Continue! (:

  48. I love your videos – I have been watching your content for a year or so, but I recently started trying print on demand (not much luck yet). I am really hoping to improve my t-shirt design skills. I have been using illustrator for a few years, but still learn something new every time I watch your videos. Thanks for the knowledge.

  49. Can we use images from freepik for T-Shirt designs? (Free for commercial use with attribution required) Attribution on a tshirt is not so good 🙂

  50. This is great as always.
    Thank you for these..

    Any chance of doing some T-Shirt tutorials using Affinity Designer for Ipad in the future?

  51. Wow! I learned more here than weeks on classes!!!!!! 🤔I should watch more of your YouTube videos!!! You are you awesome!!

  52. Love the little tweaks in your video like the shortcuts on screen!! Really really helpful. Thank you so much 🙏🙏

  54. Love this video, it’s the first video of the series and I’ve already learned a few new tricks! Can’t wait for more 🙂

    1. Draven Taitano you can use any program you feel comfortable with. I prefer procreate, photoshop and illustrator

  55. Awesome Sauce. Thanks for this series CP. I think this goes well with your course. Looking forward to more vids like this… And Epidemic Sounds is exactly what I need. I am grateful for the super valuable content you provide.🔥💣💥👊

    1. Not an expert with YT, but I don’t think it records live streams. I believe you have to capture it yourself if you want a playback vid.

  56. Another excellent video! Always great content, loving the episodes idea! Already looking forward to the next one! Newbie to illustrator after using Paint Shop Pro for so many years, I have to admit, illustrator is so much easier to use! Although I’ve learned alot of how to use illustrator just by watching your videos! So a massive thanks to you Charley! Keep up the exceptional content

    1. Charley Pangus I literally was having trouble coming up with ways to make my centerpiece more approachable. Definitely using this

  57. Another awesome tutorial! Love that you’re doing another series :)) And Gus is hanging out on the pictures 👍
