When you want to create new designs for your t-shirt brand but either don’t have the design skills or can’t hire a designer full-time, you have two options to choose from.
You can either use a freelance graphic design marketplace like Fiverr or make the designs yourself with something like Placeit’s t-shirt design maker. Both have their pros and cons so let’s take a look at how to use Fiverr to make t-shirt graphics and then how to make t-shirt graphics using Placeit’s design templates.
Take a look at the number of rating and stars each designer has, these are a good way to start to eliminate designers. While not perfect, this will make sure those designers have some experience working with customers and delivering decent work.
TIP – Stick only to designers that have at least 4.5 and higher stars and at least 100 reviews. This will quickly eliminate a large amount of scammers and bad designers.
TIP – Broken english and glaring grammatical errors are a red flag that the designer doesn’t have a good command of english and you would do well to avoid them unless you want to deal with wasted time on both ends from miscommunications. Remember, the designer needs to be able to understand exactly what you want from them to make the process go smoothly.
Take gimmicky promises with a huge grain of salt. A common tactic is to advertise unlimited revisions as a positive thing. If the designer is competent then they won’t need to offer unlimited revisions since it’ll only take a few revisions to provide you with what you’re asking for. Another important thing to watch out for is when the designer charges extra for commercial use.
