Complete Custom Hawaiian Shirt Options, Part One: Creating Your Design

Creating Custom Hawaiian Shirts

Are you ready to make your custom Hawaiian shirts to show pride in your company or organization? Our shirts can be customized to suit your style needs.  You choose the design, style, material, and finishing touches–the sky’s the limit!


First, dream up your design

When you contact us about creating Hawaiian shirts, we’ll ask for any logos, artwork, specific colors, or design suggestions to get your custom shirt artwork started. High-resolution files and Pantone colors are preferred, but our artists can work with ideas like “orange flowers on a blue background”.  If you are also ordering matching products like shorts or bandanas, we can make sure that your items coordinate in matching patterns or colors.

Here are some Hawaiian shirt designs we have previously created. Our shirts are digitally printed, which can incorporate a wide range of colors and gradients.  This method is faster and more environmentally-friendly than screen printing and provides crisp and clear images on fabric, making your artwork shine!

Full Shirt Designs

Additionally, if you are looking for a design option that extends across the entire shirt instead of a repeating pattern, we can create full shirt designs as well! Don’t feel limited by traditional flower and leaf designs–we love creating Hawaiian shirts that think outside the box.

Additional Design Options: Position Printing and Pockets

Logos are an important way to communicate the identity of your brand or organization. We have a few position print options to feature logos prominently in your design. Position printing allows a part of your design to print on a specific area of the shirt, such as the sleeve, the back of the shirt, or on the pocket! Speaking of pockets, whether or not they are on your shirts is up to you. The pocket can align with your background design if you’re seeking a seamless look!

Next steps!

Now that you’ve got a better idea of your design, it’s time to move to the next steps of choosing between cotton, rayon, polyester, and silk fabric as well as the look of your buttons and woven label. Stay tuned for a comparison of these fabrics, buttons, and label types.

In the meantime, if you have any questions or want to receive your free samples, feel free to contact us any time!  We look forward to hearing from you.
