Everyone likes a t-shirt that stands above the rest. Not just in color, not just the fit, not just the design, not so much of who’s wearing them, but it’s a combination of all. The attitude of the one who wears it is just icing on the cake but the really important part is the t-shirt itself.
There are lots and lots of good t-shirt designs out there, one in particular are the designs by Electrolychee as spotted by Aaron Roselo. Those tees are really a head turner and almost everyone would do almost anything to get their hands on those tees especially with the nearing start of the next school season.
Unfortunately the problem stems from there, since everyone wants that same t-shirt chances are, you’d be not the only one who’d wear them in campus or just out in the streets. It’s also a big bummer once you run into another person who wears the exact same shirt you are wearing. In this times of individuality and shameless self promotion, this incident is a definite No-no.
So how do you remedy this? Design and print your own t-shirts!
Here’s a cool video from the Make: Weekend Projects – How to screenprint your t-shirts
The things you need:
Silkscreen with a 1/10 mesh – it’s the most essential part of this project
A good design – A wolf face was used in the video, but in your own project, you could use any design you like or you can think of.
Emulsion – you can get this from your hardware store.
Dark room – okay not the one that’s used in developing photos, but if you have one, cool! If not, the bathroom or the basement with the lights out will do just fine.
Squeegee – you’ll need this tool to evenly apply your paint on the t-shirt
T-shirt – Didn’t I say it was a print-your-own-shirt project? Of course you can print on other stuff like a jacket, bag, door, etc.
Assistance – if you’re not 100% sure of what you’re doing it’s best you ask for help with your brother, sister, family, friend anyone who’d be there to help out in the project.
The steps are easy so go out there and create your own t-shirts! 😀
