Can someone tell me a good program to create clothing designs, I have just been sketching out any idea I have had. Been wanting to take it to the next step and get very small amount of clothes made (probably like 5 shirts,or hoodies maybe crewnecks) for right now i'm just looking for me and my friends to wear it(). and when we get more money we will go on a bigger scale and actually make more money, I just turned 17, me and my group of friends have been researching business and all that stuff, my friend has a cousin that owns a printing business, from what i've heard he makes stickers and shirts. I don 't know much about printing shirts but I know that it matters what type of machine to use. any advice? also we don't have the funds to buy wholesale stuff, I was thinking of going down to the local store to buy a couple alstyle blanks they have there so we can make shirts. I don't know what type of alstyle they are but I know they are the ones most commonly sold everywhere. almost always sold next to shakas in stores


Illustrator. Dont use photoshop, make everything in vectors.

illustrator is pretty easy to learn you just need to know the basics to design tshirts and you can always watch youtube videos

Illustrator. Dont use photoshop, make everything in vectors.


As said by everyone here, Adobe Illustrator is the way to go,

Really? I'm pretty sure it took me almost a year to get the full grasp of the pen tool.

Ya Ai has a decent learning curve to it. That pen tool is a bitchh at times. Same with the whole pathfinder thing. i still dont completely understand it but youtube tutorials have been a huge help.

Anyone that wants to learn seriously start watching youtube videos itll help a lot.
