If you are planning on giving your employees matching shirts to wear or if you are trying to get some free advertising by giving the public shirts that have your logo on it, there is a good chance that you want those shirts to look as attractive as possible. However, this can be difficult due to the fact that you might not know where the best place to put a logo is. If you put the logo in the wrong place, it could make the shirts look ugly and out of date. Here are some tips for placing a logo on apparel.

1. Place Small Logos on the Left of Your Chest

The first thing that you should consider is a smaller logo. If you are interested in using a smaller logo, then you want to be sure that you put it on the left chest. This is due to the fact that when you or anyone else who might be wearing the shirt shakes someone's hand, your right chest area gets covered. If a log were placed there, it would be covered too. When placing a logo on the left of your chest, fold the garment in half or look for buttons or a zipper that indicate the middle of the garment. Trace the seam where the sleeve is sewn onto the shirt, but do it approximately halfway down. This will be your horizontal line. Line up the logo underneath the vertical line and you've got yourself a placement area.

2. Place Cobranding Logos on Either Sleeve

Another increasingly popular option is for you to have one logo on one sleeve and a second logo on the other sleeve. This allows for you to have shirts that easily advertise two brands that got together to sponsor something. When placing a logo on the sleeve, put it in the very center, about a half inch away from the seam where the cuff and the sleeve meet. The logo should be relatively small.

3. Place Your Design Above a Pocket

If a shirt has its pocket sewn on straight, then all you need to do is measure a half inch to an inch above the top of the pocket and place the bottom of your logo there. This will allow you to make your logo look good with a minimal amount of placement effort.
