What size T-shirts do you offer?
What process do you use to print T-Shirts?
Our T-Shirts are printed by a CMYK+W digital print process and can be printed on the front and back of the T-Shirt.
Can you print only on the back of the T-Shirt?
Yes. If you would like to order printing only on the back, please choose One Side Print, and Put in the Notes Section of the order page.
What types of files do you accept for T-Shirts?
Current acceptable file types are single page .pdf, .jpg, and .eps files.
What is the total print area for the T-Shirt?
There are two available print areas, 11"x8.5" and 8.5"x11". Both are centered 2" down from the bottom of the collar for the front, and 5.5" down from the top of the collar for the back.
As you can see, the print area (GREEN) will be printed on the shirt. Anything outside that area (RED) will not be printed.
Above is an example of offset position for T-Shirts. As you can see you can achieve a left or right side chest print by positioning the logo or artwork accordingly on the 11"x8.5" document size.
Do I need to set up my artwork differently for various colors?
No. For all T-Shirts; the background color of your artwork must be transparent if you want the color of the garment to show. Saving a transparent PDF or TIF file is the best way to do this. You can also send in EPS files with no background
For example, if you want a logo printed on a garment and your artwork contains the logo with a white background, or any background color, it will print as you see it on the file. The logo must be on a transparent background if you only want the logo to print.
Do you offer templates to assist in setup for T-Shirts?
To help visualize setup and bleed rules, you can use our T-Shirt templates available here.
Do I need to setup my T-Shirt files with Bleed?
T-Shirt art files do not need bleed. Please submit your files at exactly 11"x8.5" or 8.5"x11".
Do I need to include crop marks for my T-Shirt files?
No, please do not send your artwork with crop marks or any other printer marks, including crop marks, registration marks, or color bars.
Do I need to set up my artwork differently for the women's and youth size T-Shirts?
Yes. Since the womens and youth size shirts are a bit smaller, your artwork must set up vertically only: Width = 8.5 Height = 11. Horizontal files are not accepted.
Do I need to set up my artwork differently for the Tank Top T-Shirts?
No. You may set up your artwork just like the normal mens T-Shirts.
