Tip #3: Keep It Minimal

 

Say No to TMI (Too Much Information):

Your t-shirt design shouldn't be reading material.

 

The best strategy is to showcase the reasons that make you better or different (stated as simply as possible) so it's easy for anyone to get what you are trying to convey in a nano-second.
