What Colours Are Available?
When you select the garment you'd like to personalise, you'll find a range of colour swatches on the lef-hand side of the product page. However, if the colour you need isn't available (for example, your brand's exact pantone shade), please get in touch. We'll try our best to source the perfect garment for you.
What Colours Go Together?
Certain shades can make your eye colour pop, and it's all thanks to colour theory. The most flattering shades will sit opposite your eye colour on a colour wheel, and they're known as complementary colours.
For blue eyes, try orange or anything with a golden-hue. Green eyes look fantastic against any shade of purple, while brown or hazel eyes look best against deep, cobalt blue.
Whatever your skin tone, we believe any coloured garment goes. But when referring to colour theory, certain shades are said to look better than others - and it's mainly down to the undertone of your skin.
You'll either have warm, cool or neutral undertones. Warm skin has hints of yellow, and looks best in olive green, cream, coral and golden hues. Cool skin, meanwhile, often has hints of blue or red. Try dressing in a blue garment instead, and don't shy away from rose pink shades or even grey.
Neutral skin tones enjoy a mix of both warm and cool undertones. You're likely to look good in the majority of colours, but white, red and dusty pink are said to look the best.
Combining With Other Colours
There are no limits when it comes to fashion, but if you need a helping hand pairing your new garment with other coloured clothing you're in the right place.
The easiest garment to wear fall under the neutral category - think white, black and grey. They look fantastic with almost any colour, be it yellow, red or a pair of classic blue jeans. Wearing neutral colours on your bottom half enables you to be braver with your t shirt too - black jeans really do look great with any coloured top!
As for pairing coloured garments with other coloured clothing, you can make an impact by contrasting your garment with a complementary colour. Use the colour wheel, find your garment's colour then choose another item of clothing in the shade that sits directly opposite. Green, for example, really pops against purple.
For a more muted look, keep things monotone. This doesn't mean black and white though. If you're wearing a bright pink t shirt, find the segment on the colour wheel and add items to your outfit that are either lighter or darker than bright pink e.g. light pink or a deep magenta.

How To Make Your Design Work On Different Colours
Whether you use our screen printing services or choose a more traditional method like embroidery, it's easy to transfer your design to your garment thanks to our hassle-free online tool. However, it's important to make sure you consider how your design will look on different garment colours - you don't want any details to be lost due to a bad design choice.
Let's say you're adding a logo to a t shirt using embroidery. If the key part of your logo is blue, and you'd like to add it to a blue t shirt, make sure the hues are different enough to create a stark contrast. If not, you may wish to add a background to the logo before uploading to our site (a white circle perhaps), or change your t shirt colour choice if you're unable to alter the colours of your logo.
For super-detailed designs, select a t shirt colour that doesn't feature in the design. This will prevent your design blending in, and contrasting colours will really make things pop.
As a rule of thumb, neutral shades tend to flatter designs and are the easiest way to avoid a colour clash - white, black, cream and grey t shirts tend to work well.
