After putting down your graphic, here are some printing styles you can use for best results

Screen printing involves producing a screen for each color you use that appears in the graphics and pressing ink with the colors through the screen (one screen after another) onto the tshirt. It gives long-lasting and bright colors on your tshirt results which is felt like a layer of ink. Color gradients and small details may not be reproduced well, therefore if your graphic is such, divide them into layers (separate layer to have a different color) to get best results.
2. Digital Printing
Graphics with intricate details and complex color schemes can be reproduced best by this style. Besides, it has affordable cost, except that this printing technique isn’t good at handling bright colors, especially on dark tshirts. Use heat transfer screen printing for bright colors.
3. Heat Transfer
Heat transfer is similar to digital printing except that there can be more chances of generating blurred images if they are badly placed on the heat transfer paper onto your tshirt. Be careful on placing images if you opt heat transfer style.
after designing your graphic based on the printing you need, you can send it to a printer to have it made for you. Moreover, you can submit it to a tshirt website and earn some bucks for your great efforts.
