3 Tips for Choosing Custom T-Shirt Colors, Honolulu, Hawaii

Custom T-shirts are one of the best ways to engage with customers and get your brand noticed. However, since there are endless design approaches to take, selecting colors may seem overwhelming at first. Here are a few design rules to guide you.

How to Select Colors for Custom T-Shirts

1. Don’t Go Wild

It can be tempting to choose a wide range of colors; however, multicolored schemes can quickly become unbalanced. Clashing colors will detract from your message and create confusion. Instead, start with your base color, such as red. Then choose a complementary shade like purple for your secondary color and a third like gray as an accent to keep the design uniform.

2. Use a Complementary Color to Grab Attention

Using only two colors is also easy to balance. When designing custom T-shirts, pick your brand’s most distinct colors and work from there.

3. Use Monochromatic Colors to Keep It Simple

Variations of the same color will make the shirt design basic and clean. Using various colors on the purple spectrum, for example, will allow you to create depth without making the design overwhelming. The simplicity of monochromatic custom T-shirts is better suited for general wear like sports jerseys rather than promotional wear.
