Will my shirts look like the design I see
Yes! This is what makes our site so revolutionary. Our patent pending
technology shows an accurate preview of how your printed design will
look. It is only natural that slight variations may occur due to
differences in color calibration between computer monitors and the
variation between printing on cloth vs. paper. If you'd like to include
detailed instructions about your design, please use the ADD NOTES
feature in the design application. Ultimately, our goal is to make you
happy. If you need further assistance in creating your tee shirts and
other custom merchandise designs, please contact us.
How can I design a shirt with my own
You can upload your original artwork directly to our site. Artwork must
be uploaded in two file formats, one for designing and the other for
printing. The first format allows you to preview and design your custom
tee shirts and other custom merchandise online; the second format is
used to print your finished design. Generally, images should be high
resolution with a minimum of 200 dpi at the finished printed size.
Remember, higher quality photos mean higher quality printing. Color
files are preferred, but high contrast black and white photos may also
be used. Files must have or be converted to the following extensions for
designing and printing purposes.
