Cutting for Business readers know that I am a stickler for quality products. Just because you made it yourself in your home, doesn’t mean that you should not be worried about product quality.

When I make and sell t-shirts, I use alignment tools to line up heat transfer vinyl (HTV), rhinestones, and transfers.

Today, let’s look at various t-shirt alignment tools currently on the market.

3 Best T-Shirt Alignment Tools

Tee Square It

Tee Square Its are one of the original products designed to help crafters and shirt makers create products.

Pros: There is a learning curve. I have a step-by-step tutorial to use a Tee Square It.

Cons: Expensive. Approximately $50.

Laser Alignment Systems

Laser alignment systems use lasers to project a guide onto your blank product. While some heat press manufacturers offer heat press alignments, many crafters have had good luck using off brand ones. These typically attach to your heat press or work table using a clamp.

Pros: Easy to use, easy to set up.

Cons: Some can costs hundreds of dollars if you buy a specialty one for your heat press.

T-shirt Guides

T-shirt guides are plastic guides that crafters can use to line up t-shirt designs. You can pick them up for under $10.

Pros: Cheap, easy to use.

Cons: You need different ones for different sized shirts.

The little wiggle was really the biggest challenge for me with this tool, otherwise I really love how easy it is to keep things placed where I need them.

Thanks so much for sharing the features of this new model!
