Possibilities are endless when it comes to designing tees for someone and it's best if you think about the print several weeks in advance. Here are some ideas to get you started. First of all, you can go for the simple option and choose a plain text print. Choose a nice font and ask the company to print a message that really represents you friend. It can be anything from an inspirational quote, a line from their favorite movie or a nickname. Don't be afraid to add images, but make sure you work with a professional screen printing company, so that the image will stay on the t-shirt after it's washed in the washing machine. For instance, you can download an image from their favorite movie or TV show and have it printed. The benefit of doing this is that it costs much less than original merchandise. By custom printing a t-shirt, you won't pay more than a couple of dollars, but if you want to buy the same design right from the official store, you can pay dozens of dollars even if the quality is the same.
If your friend supports a particular soccer team, you can create a design with his name and number on it. Also, you can look for a representative photo of both of you and have it printed. Of course, this is rarely the kind of item that they would wear in public, but it's still a nice gesture and is better received than a generic birthday card or a decorative item. Those who have friends who are interested in comics and cartoons are the luckiest ones, because there are plenty of cool designs out there. For example, you can look for independent artists who create original fan art and ask them if you can use their work for personal purposes. The Internet is an endless source of inspiration and, as long as you find a professional printing company that uses state of the art technologies, creating the perfect meaningful gift becomes a piece of cake!
