Mockups are printed on black and white job tickets and cannot be used to determine color during the printing process. It is important to remember that we use the print file you submit with your orders to print your item, NOT the mockup.
Please make sure you submit BOTH a print file and a mockup file. Make sure the size, color, and design match. If the print file does not match the mockup your order may be placed on hold or printed incorrectly. If you find yourself resizing your print file in the mockup tool, it is a key indicator that you must also make the same changes to your print file , or save the print file that is generated by the mockup tool once you have made changes using the tool.
However, please note that making a graphic larger will result in a loss of resolution and we cannot guarantee the quality of your print if you do so. We only print the color white on non-white garments. We actually print a white under base and then print the color on top. On white garments we DO NOT print white, it is stripped and the white comes from the white shirt showing. All non-white garments print a white underbase before the color artwork layer by default.
Attempting to print on colored shirts without an underbase only works to achieve a vintage or faded look on lighter colored shirts, such as light blues, yellows, tans, light greys, pinks, etc. If you lay down your favorite t-shirt and then take a regular 8. You can even rotate it to get an idea of how big 8. Make sure your design has enough contrast between colors. A better solution would be a lighter purple to make sure the color would pop. We expect our clients to provide print ready images formatted to be printed.
We currently do not offer graphics services for sizing, cleaning, or altering our clients art. We are not responsible for low quality or incorrectly sized submitted art. Underbase can cause problems for designs with standard transparency.
The underbase is only printed underneath your design, and it is not transparent. Using transparent artwork often leads to very unexpected results, depending on the amount and degree of transparency used in the design. How do you avoid this issue? There are a couple of options to avoid the transparency problem:.
Example This is how a white transparent glow shows up when printed on a garment. In this photo on the left, the milky white haze in the design was transparent, and surrounded the entire design.
The second photo shows how the artwork looks when it is prepared for the printers, everything that appears solid yellow will actually print a solid white. The yellow you see is the underbase layer applied to the design.
As the picture shows, this is not at all what the designer imagined he was creating! Lay your shirt on a flat surface and get a tape measure. The width is the chest measurement. The length, meanwhile, is measured from the top of the shoulder to the bottom. Due to the difference of sizes according to manufacturers, you need to understand that t-shirt sizes are merely approximations.
There may be at an inch or two difference that you need to be mindful about. As mentioned, t-shirt sizes vary. For standard adult size, Small is about 20 inches x I want to keep my customers and not send them WalMart for do-it-yourself pintable transfers Last edited by br1ght; June 28th, at June 28th, Jun 28, 1: We shoot for an 11" wide print on most designs, letting the length be dictated by aspect ratio.
Of course the design itself may dictate other widths if it is long and thin for example. Our maximums are Since most of our orders have a wide range of sizes, we find the 11" fits most shirts well.
It does get small on 3xl and 4xl shirts, but we don't typically have a large quantity of those in the orders. We also have orders where the customer specifically asks for a minimal design, say inches wide. I've printed up to 12" wide on a Youth XS before, many times. We almost never make multiple size screens for a single job. Customers won't usually pay for it either on small jobs. It really becomes a separate job, so we would require a minimum of 12 garments for that screen.
And we never do multiple sizes for multi-colored jobs. Someone asked about hoodies. We keep the length to a max of 9" and find we can print down to a Youth Large with that. With the smaller print field, the pocket balances the smaller print even on the larger shirts.
If they have sizes smaller than YL, we cut the length even more and let them know it will be the same size on all the shirts they print. Alternatively, we've also printed larger designs on the backs of the smaller sizes that go on the front of the larger shirts when it's a front-only design. Customers tend to work within your physical press limitations. February 2nd, Feb 2, 9: Type Your Message Below: It is against our Forum Guidelines.

Feb 02, · Re: Size/Dimensions of T-Shirt Graphics/Designs For adult shirts I keep to 10 1/2x10 1/2" as my standard goto size larger than that and I charge more for oversize if done in vinyl I find it easiest to take the two smallest sizes and size to the 2nd smallest being sure that it still fits the smallest. Cover your body with amazing Dimensions t-shirts from Zazzle. Search for your new favorite shirt from thousands of great designs! The Hanes Beefy T-shirt is another excellent heavyweight shirt option. Like the Gildan Ultra Cotton T, it is ounces and % cotton, however it is made of a softer “ring-spun” cotton, making it a bit more of a premium-quality shirt.
