Designer T-Shirts - Your Own Personal Attire

May 1, 2008
There are T-Shirts and T-Shirts; funny t-shirts, cool t-shirts, those t-shirts and these t-shirts covering just about any subject on earth. But there is one t-shirt that is unique - and that is the "Designer" T-Shirt. Now, don't for a moment think that these distinctive kind of t-shirts are a recent phenomenon. Thomas E. Dewey toyed with the "Dew-IT with Dewey" T-Shirt during his 1948 Presidential campaign and Dwight D. Eisenhower had the "I Like Ike" custom t-shirt with which he won the Presidency in 1952. These are designer t-shirts. T-shirts designed for a specific purpose at a specific time. They may have passed out of the memory of most people, but they served their purpose.

Freedom of expression is guaranteed under the Constitution and people like to express their opinions. They just love to show off their creativity. One of the best ways to do so would be to create a unique designer t-shirt. It is unique in the sense that, depending on the expression - either verbal or graphic - that it flaunts, it will make the wearer stand out in a crowd, sometimes like a sore thumb. Nevertheless, it will make a statement.

In 1952, Dwight D. Eisenhower won the Presidency with the message "I Like Ike" blazoned across t-shirts. This was a t-shirt designed for a specific purpose. But it need not always be so. Dog lovers can have a picture of their dog splashed across their bosoms or on their backs. This is just an example. Political or social statements are another. The possibilities are endless. All that is necessary is to have an idea, an inspiration and the internet is there to get the rest of the things necessary to create just that unique t-shirt for the world to view.

For an individual creating a designer t-shirt throws up a lots of ifs and buts. Menacing questions that tends to confuse and discourage. And in these days when practically every other thing requires a good workable knowledge of the use of a computer, even more questions:

Do I have an aptitude for drawing? Should I first learn how to draw? What are the principles of design? Where can I learn the basics of computer usage? What computer program should I use? Who is going to teach me to use these programs?

The use of computers is not difficult to learn. Most of the programs come with built in help facilities for you to fall back on when stumped. Both online and offline tutorials are also available for just about all computer programs. If you do not have an aptitude for computer use, the Internet abounds with web sites that offer consultation services. Consultants will convert your idea into original, personalized designer t-shirts for a fee.

If you are going to design the t-shirt yourself, a sufficient knowledge of the basic principles of design should be enough to get you started. Help is just around the corner on the Internet. And once you have put your hands to it, it might just turn out that you discover that you have a flair for come creative thought and you might be on your way to become a top flight designer of designer t-shirts.

The acquisition of a designer t-shirt now throws up another pertinent question. How is to be used? Well, you can selfishly keep it to your self or get a number of them for gifting to either your relatives or your friends. Specifically designed t-shirts can be used to endorse a particular product or even a specific cause. It may be given away as a corporate gift. It is only limited by your imagination.
