#2) Shortlist your ideas

Once you’ve developed a list of possible names, do an analysis of your ideas. Remove any names that could be hard to remember, spell or speak aloud. Keep names that are brandable, sound great, are memorable and communicate your brand values, product or service to your target audience.

Here’s a quick checklist you can run your ideas through to help shorten your list of name:

  • Is the name simple and easy to remember?
  • Is the name easy to read and say aloud?
  • Is the name different from competitors?
  • Does the name convey a relevant meaning?
  • Does the name avoid overused words or cliches?

#3) Get some feedback

You’ll now have a list of 3-6 great T-shirt business names and you can start to ask potential customers or people working in the industry for feedback (your target audience). Avoid feedback from family and friends, are more likely to praise all your ideas and they aren’t your customer.

Be sure to ask questions like:

  • What first comes to mind when you first hear the name?
  • How would you spell it?

With you’re customer feedback you can now ask yourself is the name still relevant? and did it represent your business how you intended?

My customer feedback:

Graphix

The name is short, catchy and very brandable.

Urban ero

The name appeals to customers who prefer the urban lifestyle.

For Kids Designs

The name is very specific regarding its target customer.

Unique Tee Designs

The name conveys that the company offer unique and authentic products.

#4) Check It’s available

At this point, it’s good to have at least three great T-shirt business names on your list, in case your any of your names are already taken. You can do a quick Business Name Search online to find out if you’re name is available within your country/state, also be sure to search if the name is also available for Trademark and Domain name Registration.

Check Domain Availability

Competitor Name Analysis

To help you brainstorm potential business names, let’s take a look at three successful T-shirt businesses and break down why and how they’ve chosen to name their business and why it works for them.

RushOrderTees Logo

RushOrderTees conveys the business is very good at dealing with urgent orders. If a customer needed their T-shirt to be designed urgently, they would probably choose this business just because of the name. The name is also simple, catchy and easy to pronounce and remember.

DiscountMugs Logo

DiscountMugs appeals very much to customers who love discounts. If they see that this business gives a free mug and other goodies every time you use their services, they are more likely to choose it over and over and even recommend it to friends and family members. That is why this name works so well.

Custom Ink Logo

Custom Ink capitalizes on the need for customization among customers. When it comes to T-shirt printing, customization is key and that is why most customers are bound to choose this business since it promises customized products. The name is also simple, short, catchy and memorable.

5 Tips for naming your T-shirt business

The ideal business name should be simple, memorable and convey a meaning all at the same time. Here are my 5 tips to keep in mind when developing your business names.

1. Do a Competitor Analysis

Doing a competitor analysis as your first step will save you a lot of time in the future, knowing what names to avoid and understanding why and how your competitors business name words for them will help you in forming your own business names. When analyzing competitors think about:

  • What business or product values are they conveying in their business name? How does that work for them?
  • Is there a trend in how these businesses are naming themselves? It’s best to avoid sounding like “just another one of those businesses”.
  • Who does it best? Why does it work and how can I produce a better name?

2. Focus on Naming your Business not Describing it.

A typical pitfall most businesses run into is describing their business name too literally, using overused terms. A more effective business name should convey to customers your businesses and product values at a deeper level. Try name your business in a way that has a story behind it.

Let’s take for example a T-shirt business named “Beyond the Ink “.

On the outside, this is just another witty business name but it actually trying to convey that this T-shirt business offers more than just printing. So customers coming here expect more.

3. How to make a more memorable name

Creating a memorable business name is the first step in getting into a customers mind and is also a task that’s easier said than done. Your business name should aim to stop a customer in their tracks and give an extra thought on your product among your wave of competitors. Some tips to create a memorable name would be:

  • Use rhythmic pronunciation or alliteration (Tee Designs, Design Dungeon)
  • Try using a word that wouldn’t be relevant when out of context.
  • Keep it short and simple.

4. Try purchasing a Brandable business name

Brandable business names are names that are non-sensical but read and are pronounced well. They often use letter patterns of Vowel/Consonant/Vowel as these word structures are typically short, catchy and easy to say and remember. For example, some brandable T-shirt business names could be:

  • Nuvane Desings
  • Alomos Tee Designs
  • Nurilo Ink Pro

You can find a full list of Brandable business names at Domainify.com

5. Avoid combining words just to create a unique name.

Another mistake business owners typically make is creating bad word combinations when they find out that their business name idea is already taken. For example, John names his business Bumble Tees and finds out it’s already taken. Because he’s already decided this is what he’ll name his business he tries to opt for similar sounding names like BumbillTees, Bumblees or BummbleTees.

You can see how these ideas are a step backward as they are not catchy, easily pronounceable or memorable. In these situations, we suggest starting from scratch and trying the tips we mentioned previously.
