If you are looking for a free website that allows you to mockup a shirt without having to use Photoshop or know Photoshop layers, the Shirtmockup site featured above might be the right choice for you.
This site allows you to create a simple mockup t-shirt with a jpeg image on a photo realistic tshirt for free without requiring advanced Photoshop skills. You create the mockup online and you can download the image when you are finished. It will however, have the company’s watermark on the lower left-hand corner.
If you want to purchase the photoshop layers templates that are featured in the lower half of the website (and also free of the company’s watermark), get ready to get out your bank card in order to purchase the template packages that are made available. The Gomedia mock-up templates are high quality photoshop layers that come in a variety of men’s tshirts, women’s tshirts, hoodies and other apparel.
The following t-shirt mockup was made with one of these templates and is a logo design image previously created for a client for his music studio and featured in a couple of my Youtube videos.
Just like any other small business marketing efforts, you need to determine who your targeted audience is or will be when you decide to design or create a promotional t-shirt.
The following tips are a few points you might want to consider before you get started.
1) Determine Your Target Audience and T-shirt Purpose. When deciding who your target audience is you will also want to determine where the t-shirt is going to be distributed, what the message is going to be and whether you are going to directly promote your logo or business in your t-shirt design. Also when it comes to calculating your costs you might want to determine how many t-shirts you want printed in your initial run. Most printers reduce the cost of the t-shirt based on how many t-shirts you want printed but you will need to evaluate or compare overall pricing between printers.
In the intensive competition for food product sales, many business owners do not realize the importance that the package design of their product plays in their product’s marketing.

All these elements are combined so that the customer can make his preferred selection from all the competing products or brands available.
But what exactly are these elements? The following is a brief summary of some the graphic elements involved. You should review the following points and write down a few ideas so that the graphic designer you hire can incorporate the items that best reflect your product and business. Having pre -planned what you want included in your product packaging will assure that a professional graphic designer will develop the design that you desire.
