Selecting and arranging clipart can feel deceptively easy, but there are some fundamental tips you can use to improve the design of your t-shirt, hoodie, or other pieces of apparel.
Keep It Simple
Simplicity is an important component of good apparel design. Most designers make the mistake of adding too many clipart, text, and color elements that result in blurring the primary purpose of the design.
We recommend using one main image or idea and removing anything that competes with it.
When placing clipart, consider how it will interact with the elements of the garment.
Some general clipart placement guidelines include:
- Front Designs: 2”- 4” from the collar
- Seams: At least 1” spacing
- Back Hoodie Designs: 6” from collar to avoid the hood

Balance Shirt and Print Color
Select shirt and print colors that have adequate contrast to ensure design visibility. This includes avoiding the use of colors in the same color family.
Manage Size & Scale
Using oversized clipart in a design is a common mistake; more modestly-sized elements will produce a better result. Although our Design Studio offers guidance with a set of guides, we still recommend staying 1” - 2” inside the bounding box for best results.
