5 Tips for Success in Creating a Quality Custom Screen Print Design

Having trouble achieving the custom screen print design you hoped for?

We hear from customers all the time who are overwhelmed about where to start with the custom screen print design process. Often times more than one person is involved in the project and creating consensus can be difficult as well. That's why we, at TC Span America, try to make the design process as easy and quick as possible. Here are 5 tips to help make the design process smooth for you.

1. Think About the Purpose of the Custom Screen Print Design.

Is this design to celebrate an event, or is it for a club, team or business? Does a school or company logo need to be used in the design? Should a date be included in the design if it's for an event? Decide what information needs to be included in the design.

2. Look at Other Designs for Inspiration on Layout.

Maybe you already have a business, school or team logo that will drive the design layout. If not, our online Designs Gallery of custom school, club and team screen print designs is a convenient way to look at many designs to help create your own.

3. Create Your Own Artwork and Submit to Us.

We prefer Adobe Illustrator vector or PDF files. Simply attach the artwork when you email us at Not comfortable with the electronic process? Simply email us your art work in whatever format you have available to you and our art department will work on it and email a screen print ready art proof for your review.

4. Request Us to Create the Artwork for You.

Utilize the experience and expertise of the designers in our art department. Email us the art information by using our online. Request an Art Comp service. We'll create a design and email it back to you as a starting point. Best of all, it's free of charge!

5. Think About the Colors in the Design When Choosing Garment Colors.

Once you narrow down your garment color choices ask us for an emailed art proof showing your design on the different garment colors. Some ink colors may not show well on certain garment colors. This is a handy way of visualizing the final product before going into screen print production.
