Artwork Guidelines

Screenprinted designs work best when they're made from areas of flat color. If your design has gradients, shadows, or glows, it's much harder (or even impossible) to print. Avoid those if possible. Vector files are best. If vector isn't possible, 600dpi raster images (at actual size or bigger) also works. Make sure all your colors are easily separable... on separate layers, or in separate groups.

We typically allow printing in two locations: choose from front, back, and sleeve prints. Keep your main print location (front) to four (4) colors or fewer. Keep your secondary print location (back or sleeve) to two colors or fewer. Yes, black and white count as colors. What's actual size? Glad you asked. You have a printable area of 11" wide by 14" tall to work with for the t-shirt front or back. If you want to print on the sleeve, keep it 3" by 3" or smaller.

If you have something non-standard in mind—metallic ink or foil prints, glow-in-the-dark, split fountain gradients, etc.—let us know. We’ll see what we can do.

Got it? Good. Let's make something together.
