. I was looking to print my logo on the back of my shirts, positioned center-top area 2" by 2 ". I have seen so many shirts with their logo printed there, and they come across as tacky, but sometimes they really add to the shirt. I have been told this makes your brand look more official, but sometimes it’s an over kill.

    I do it with my line. I think it adds to the brand and when your printing it on all your shirts it gets your brand out there a bit more. People won't know what shirt your wearing if they are behind you... with a back print they do.

    is this a question? its just an opinion...

    Question...sorry for being confusing

    Do you need to be smart about it? So if he just added "Oppinions?" at the end it would have been a question, and you fully know that as well.
  • AngrySpade

    I think they look pretty good as long as its a good logo, I dont do it with AS shirts but lots of brands do.
  • Colemadethis

    regardless of it being a question its a matter of taste. i mean what are you doing running a brand if you can't decide if you like back prints on your shirts?
  • Anthony Smith

    I hate back prints. Big time. Been put off many shirts with awesome front prints because of it.
    Just to throw a spanner in this thread.

    But like Cole said, tis your brand. You'll never please everyone.
  • quakerninja

    As long as it doesn't make the design look like shit I don't care where the logo is.
    The inside printed tag is a nice look. We are all designers so we lean towards no logo at all.
    Some people want to be walking billboards and rep the brand. Look at me in my name brand shirt you no name losers kind of thing, others don't. So it's a matter of preference. I can't answer without knowing more about you, your brand and the people you are trying to impress.

    i did it a little different with a shirt i put out recently, did a small shoulder area print, i thought it was a cute added extra, i like small extra prints.

    I love little back prints. Not so much logos or brand names, but like craig did with his vampire teeth. Just a little extra something to compliment the concept or artwork. I definitely think its a thoughtful touch.

    I have a back print on my logo tee, came out fine. Most people I've sold too really enjoy it there.

    Yeah this one that Craig did was awesome, usually I think they're dumb but the subtle ones are ok if done right
  • William Henry

    Not a fan of back prints. I like it when the brand removes the tag and does a custom tag print with the logo.
  • Jd

    I agree Andrew "subtle" back prints might be the way to go!
  • Husky

    I think they look alright, Acute(from these forums) has it on one of his shirts with his logo I think?

    And to me it looks sweet! So it depends how you pull it off though.

    I used to like a lot of arkaik's stuff, but I never bought a shirt exactly because of their back print. That is significant. However, it's also important to note that I think Arkaik's logo is easily one of the worst logo's I have seen out of all of the semi-successful emptees brands.

    so, I guess, unless you have a really strong logo, don't do it.

    Mostly a big loss of money, especially if you're starting your business.

    How do you figure? a 2x2 print on hundreds of shirts would cost almost noting.
  • kyleidoscope

    If a back print is a logo, especially if it's a new brand that doesn't have any "warm and fuzzy" hook on me, it would turn me off buying it.

    If It's something clever that extends the design on the front, i'm down!

    The vast majority of starting brands will never reach "hundreds" of sales. You better spend these dollars on better designs/website/better blanks, in my opinion.
  • Pabacker66

    Everyone seems to think that it would help to know more about your brand and the look you are talking about. Why don't you show us an example of what you are thinking of having done?

    It does add the the illusion of brand "legitimacy", however a professional internet presence does more so. So spend you money on that.
  • evolve or die

    JINX do it really well. it's their logo based on whatever the front design is. And it can be top centre, bottom right, wherever.
  • Patrick

    Instantly puts me off buying a shirt if it has a back print, but i am very picky with what i buy.
  • SirEuan

    I'm not a big fan of back prints, makes me feel like I'm paying you to be a walking billboard for your brand.
  • HighFive

    I've done backprints since day one, and i have never heard any bad feedback what so ever!
