Either when selling personalised t-shirts online or on the streets of London (or any other city in the UK or the world for that matter), or distributing promotional t-shirts to crowds, putting them in beautiful, eye-catching and innovative T-shirt packaging is a great way to conquer your customers through the power of sight.
Forget about poly bagging, for your brand to stand out and “wow!” all of your customers, you have to go further and be unique – think more than just having all those beautiful T-shirt designs and printing sorted (although that is, of course, a must as well).
The most creative t-shirt packaging we’ve ever seen!
On top of that, start getting creative with packaging can only add more value to your product and business, it’s a win-win situation and often looks great on Instagram and Pinterest too!
And from faux food packaging to masqueraded paint pots, brands like Johnny Cupcakes and Nike have certainly been getting imaginative with their t-shirt packaging.
So, after scouring the web we have selected the best T-shirt packaging design examples from around the web for your inspiration and enjoyment, with them all culminating here in this beautiful gallery. So off you click… enjoy!
Update: See part 2 of the coolest t-shirt packaging design here.
#1 Cardboard is overrated.
Look for other types of materials for a unique visual effect.
#2 These packages make you think of ice cream.
Play with the senses to create an experience that goes beyond the visual.
#3 Be careful with those shards!
Forcing clients to break the package turns a simple “unpacking” onto an unique event.
#4 A perfect example of a classic design with a “twist”.
#5 Relating your product with a type of food or beverage can be beneficial.
In this case, t-shirts adopt the positive attributes of milk: nutritious, healthy and recommended for kids.
#6 What does your target like?
This time around the packaging is geared towards adults thanks to a theme such as poker that’s reminiscent of bets and nights out on the town.
#7 A good sense of humour can be an effective sales tactic.
#8 Another example of food and clothing coming together.
Maybe this is where Lady Gaga got her inspiration for the meat dress!
#9 Who said you need an expensive and complicated design?
Simple, attractive and inexpensive works too!
#10 Fast food + fashion = Fast Fashion.
I had to.
#11 Johnny Cupcakes is one of the most creative t-shirt brands out there…
And the packaging is one of the reasons of their success.
#12 T-shirts can also be toys when done right.
#13 This is a simple design, but has been printed with an elaborate design.
#14 Don’t be afraid to be a little controversial.
If a bit of blood won’t raise a few eyebrows, what will?
#15 A minimalist design often says more than a convoluted one.
#16 Did someone order a t-shirt?
#17 Simplicity is key.
This design may not wrap the entire product, but it doesn’t waste as many resources.
#18 If you want to go green, better than recycling is reusing!
A jar is a perfect example of a package that can be reused.
#19 T-shirt to go! And with extra foam.
#20 The t-shirt as a pizza box seems to be a popular concept.
#21 Being lucky.
We’ve seen some packages pretend to be food in this list, but this one is an actual cookie! A fortune cookie to be precise. It would surely cause an impression
#22 Again, simple design done right.
#23 This package has got a little cut out that allows you to get a glimpse of the garment inside.
#24 The design of these t-shirts was done with wall paint!
Or at least that’s what they want you to think.
#25 And oldie, but a goodie.
Sometimes all a designer needs is a little string to make amazing packaging happen.
