If you are looking for a fun, simple, and practical project to do at home, you may be surprised at how easily you can make your own graphic t-shirt. Graphic tees are fun and unique for people of all ages. As you choose a t-shirt design and gather supplies, you will likely find that many of the supplies you need to make your graphic tee are all things you already have in your home.
Print at Home
For those who have little to no knowledge about graphic tee printing, the general misconception is that special printing equipment is needed for making t-shirts. Using a standard inkjet printer you can print your design onto transparency film from the comfort and ease of your home office. If you have access to an inkjet printer, homemade t-shirts can be made much more easily than most people assume.
Create a Simple Dark Room
If you don’t have a dark room readily available to you, turning a dark bathroom space into your work area can be fairly simple. Make sure no natural light is coming in through windows or doors, and turn off all vanity lights or overhead lighting. Use a simple yellow bug light so you can see what you are doing as you work with light sensitive materials like emulsion and film.
