    watch YouTube tutorials, such as how to design a
    shirt in photoshop, read countless articles, and
    look out for reviews.
  • Luckily, there is a sea of T-shirts designing
    applications and T-shirt transfer software out
    there. Even more surprisingly a lot of them are
    unmatched at what they do. We sat down to do some
    extensive research and find out what is the best
    software that leading T-shirt printing businesses
    use all over the world. Keep reading if you want

    basic layout and style for your shirt. From there
    you can proceed with its existing graphic
    elements, or you can upload your designs from

    interface that takes only a few minutes to get
    adapted to and is powerful for making simple
    designs. You can tweak colours, design, font, and
    other graphic elements and once you are satisfied
    with your creation you can print your T-shirt
    however you like.

SonicShack Design Studio
  • SonicShack is a web-based application that lets
    its users make T-shirt designs online and then
    sell those custom printed T-shirts via the
    SonicShack store. Its ability to offer the users
    an interactive interface to design and sell
    T-shirts makes it a great choice for
    all-inclusive T-shirt designing and printing.
  • However, it does have a drawback. This
    application is made for the ease of user above
    anything else which is also the reason why you
    will not get to use the same features that other
    programs, such as Adobe Illustrator offer.
  • On the other hand, SonicShack is completely free.
    And you can download this free T shirt design
    software online, but you will not get any
    warranty on the application.

  • Inkscape is another tool that is perfect for
    those who like a good professional T shirt design
    but also want a free tool to make their vision
    come to life. This is basically an open-source
    vector-based tool for rendering beautiful designs
    and offers the same features as the famous Adobe
    Illustrator but without the cost. Another cool
    thing about this software is that it lets you
    leverage other peoples files and designs that
    are free-for-use to its community.
  • Once you get the hang of it, then using this
    application to design T shirts by applying your
    expertise becomes like second nature. It is
    compatible with Linux, macOS, and Windows OS.
    Besides, it lets you transform an existing bitmap
    image into a vector image via tracing function.
    You can also scale up and down any picture in
    size as you need for your design and, then export
    it for screen-printing. Finally, Inkscape
    delivers raster image formats like .png and .jpg.
