If you have one of those people who are impossible to buy gifts for, you can stop pulling your hair out the next time their birthday rolls around. Custom t shirts are affordable and can be the perfect gift for all ages. T shirts are a basic wardrobe item for most people, but when you customize them, they make an outstanding gift. Here are some ideas on how to create a personalized custom t shirt for a gift.

Adding Personal Pictures

Many custom t shirt companies give you the option of uploading any picture you please to go on the t shirt. This means you can upload that goofy picture of grandpa from last year's family reunion or you could add the picture of your son holding his baseball trophy. Your options are virtually unlimited.

However, remember that the resolution quality makes a big difference in how the image turns out on the shirt. The best DPI resolution is 300, which will provide clear, crisp images.

Custom Designed Images And Print

If you would rather create your own images, logo or slogan for the t-shirt, you can typically find images online from your search bar. For example, if the person really likes motorcycles, you can use a search engine to find images for the specific type of motorcycle they like. Save the image on your computer and you can upload this image for the shirt as long as the resolution quality is high.

If you want to create a personal slogan or logo, you can use any computer document program, such as Word, Works, or Notepad, and simply type in the words and then use the design options to create exactly the font you want. This can also be uploaded.

Letting The Pros Do The Job

For those who are not as computer savvy and want a custom t shirt but don't know how to upload or create the images and logos on their own, you have two options. You can go to a t shirt company in person, where they can create the shirt on site. You can also visit an online t shirt company and call their customer service reps who can walk you through the entire process.

If you want a gift that will be used and enjoyed for years, a t shirt is a great way to go. Although custom prices do vary, they are still a very affordable way to get a one-of-a-kind gift for someone special.
