Default Which pair of colours are best to design a T-shirt?

Yellow & Off-White. Yellow and white don't typically make the best pairing. Both colors are very bright, and if there's text on the t-shirt, it ends up being really hard to read, so a lot of people rule out this color combo before ever trying it.

Default Re: Which pair of colours are best to design a T-shirt?

Your best bet, when designing for shirts are to use colors that contrast with the shirt, for more visibility, pop and easier to read.

There are exceptions, like when you are trying to make a design that is more subdued. An example if that case would be to use Darker Blue inks on a Navy shirt, or Dark Grey inks on a Black shirt.

In the past year I've made Black designs that printed on Black shirts (for biker clubs). Makes for an interesting look. They call in a "Murder Black" look. It's something they wanted (their idea), not something I would try to sell to a customer, for sure.

Yeah, chose mostly contrasting colors would be the most often choice for designs I would think.
