Create T-shirt Design Templates with T-shirt Design Software - NBDesigner

You might already have an amazing online t-shirt store but one thing is missing: equally awesome product shots, or you might have trouble with product photography, or maybe you’re using a print-on-demand service to run your store and don’t actually have any of your shirts on hand?

The first step to get a perfect t-shirt design template, you have to find a t-shirt mockup you like and add your design.Β 

A t-shirt mock-up is a blank slate for designing a t-shirt with your own graphics, pictures, images, words, or branding. When you mock up a t-shirt, you create a design and put it on a virtual t-shirt so you and your customers can get an idea of what it will look like in real life. T-shirt mock-ups might be flat-lay or on a ghost mannequin or real model.

Now, when you found yourself a perfect t-shirt mock-up, you could create a product with different variations of color or size.Β 

Let’s look at an example [DEMO LINK]!

When you choose the color from the product page, on the editor page it will show the product image background you set for that color.Β 

t-shirt design page

All of your t-shirt design templates are shown on the templates tab. From the t-shirt templates library, a customer can choose one t-shirt design template that he/she likes, then customize it in the way he/she wants: add clipart, add text,...

You can also upload your own image or logo if you want, and you can remove any of the elements you don’t need. So from this one template, you can achieve a huge variety of final designs.

As you can see, you can customize pretty much everything with the design tools on the left sidebar. So, your customers can play around with the design as much as they want before downloading the final version, so they can feel confident knowing they have got it just right.

Product Image Background Bulk Change Feature

Imagine that you created a t-shirt with tons of beautiful design templates. One day the product image background (t-shirt mockup) becomes old-fashion and you decide to change it to a new, trendy one.Β 

It might take you β€œforever” to change the product image background on each t-shirt design template. A few customers faced this problem and contacted our consultant for advice. Later, our developer team came up with a new idea. They launched an extra feature that could help store admin to bulk change product image backgrounds.Β 

That means if the store admin changes the product image background from the product setting page. The background image will be applied to all existing t-shirt design templates which could help he/she save a lot of time.Β 

I will explain how it works.Β 

set up product image back ground

Normally, when you create a product, you need to set an image as a product background which I explained above as a t-shirt mock-up.

On the front-end, all of your actions such as editing text, add clipart…will be applied on this t-shirt mockup and you could know how exactly your design will be on a real t-shirt or we could call it the result when the output printing t-shirt come out.Β

All the templates you create after publishing this product will also reflect on this t-shirt mockup. Once a store admin changes the product image background, he/she has to make a change on each t-shirt design template also.Β 

However, when we employ the product image background bulk change feature on-site, when the store admin changes the image of the t-shirt mockup, this mockup can also be applied to all existing t-shirt design templates.Β 

For example, at first, we used the black t-shirt mockup for the product.Β

Later, when we change the t-shirt mockup to a red color image.Β

All the t-shirt design templates will also change to the red color as you could see in the product previews.Β

All happened with only a few clicks. Very quickly and neatly!

This feature is appropriated for online stores or products that change the t-shirt used for printing occasionally. Or if you want to apply the existing t-shirt templates from one product model to other models as well, you also should consider this feature.Β 

Store admin could create one product at the beginning with all the t-shirt design templates ready. And then duplicate the product, change product information and price, change product mockup. then he/she gots a totally new product with the same design templates.Β 

I hope you all find this helpful in learning how to better use our t-shirt design software and especially in creating your own t-shirt design templates.Β
