Save Both Time and Money by Making Your Own Breast Cancer Shirts
Showing our love and support for breast cancer victims, survivors and fighters is a great way to raise awareness towards this disease. We may not all be able to come up with a cure for cancer or to participate in the latest research, but if we can do our part to help spread awareness by wearing and promoting breast cancer shirts, that sounds like a feasible contribution.
Making your own breast cancer shirt is a great way to show your respect for a relative or close friend who is undergoing a battle with this nasty disease; it’s also a powerful way to raise awareness and help collect funds for treatments and other medical expenses. To make your own breast cancer awareness shirts you don’t need to hire a designer or buy any kind of fancy software, in this post I will show you how to make a breast cancer awareness t-shirt for free and in a matter of minutes.
Step #1 – Choose a T-Shirt Template
Placeit’s brand new t-shirt templates let you turn into an artist or graphic designer in seconds! All you need to do is choose a t-shirt design template and customize it. Though there are lots of tshirt templates you can personalize for your use case, I recommend you go for the Breast Cancer Awareness Template.
Step #2 – Add Some Text to Your Shirt Design
If you are you supporting a relative or friend’s battle against breast cancer and are planning an event to raise funds, then making customized t-shirts for the occasion is the way to go, but don’t just make a generic tee. Make your breast cancer shirts personal by adding text to honor the person you are making the fundraiser for. Great news is, with design templates you can do that super easily.
How? On the left side of the template you will see the text fields, type your text, choose a font, a color and voilá!
Your text will automatically adjust when you add it to maintain its shape and center, you don’t have to worry about a thing, have a look:
Step #3 Choose a Graphic or Icon to Go with Your Text
Now you’ve got your text ready, it’s time for us to add an image that will go with it. Graphics can be powerful assets as these help the message go throw in a quicker and more effective manner. This breast cancer awareness tshirt template comes with lots of preset graphics that go along perfectly with the theme, which means all you need to do is select the one you like the most and click on it to add it to your design.
It really is that simple. For example, our design reads “Fighting for Vanessa”, it has the preset ribbon graphic and it already looks great! But we can go ahead and test other options, check them out:
Step #4 Add a Background, Pattern or Photo to Support Your Design

These backgrounds really help you give your design some personality if you are thinking of other ways to use it aside from shirts – I will go over this on the next step.
If you are just planning on making tshirts, I recommend you avoid adding a background, photo or pattern and simply download the image with a transparent background, this way your design will look its best printed on tshirts of several colors. To do this, just select the checkered icon, which will give your design a transparent background.
Step #5 Explore Different Use Cases
Your breast cancer shirt design is ready, but that’s not the end! You can still make use of your design in case you want to explore other possibilities aside from printing tshirts. Let’s say after making your shirts you want to use the breast cancer awareness design you made for printing a poster or to share on social media – it would make a great visual for your Facebook event!
