I am firmly putting on my Sales/Service Representative hat to work through a series of questions I get asked about using your own artwork in a design. What files work best? How do I upload my files? How do I make sure it prints the way I want it to?
A few weeks ago, I wrote about cool things that you can do with a photo, but before we get to that point, we need to start with selecting and uploading your images. I’m going to piece together the process for you, with some quick tips and insights along the way. I’ll start today’s post with a reminder than you can call our sales reps at any time and they can help you through any step, or do it for you.
Many of you like to create photo t-shirts using your personal photographs. Adding your photo to our Design Lab is easy… the tricky part is knowing whether the quality is good enough to print. Sometimes small photos can look OK in the Design Lab, but they won’t print well. Why? The Lab is scaled down for easy viewing on everyone’s monitor. So, you need to check the size you have made your image on the shirt in the Lab. Then see if your image is good enough to size up to those dimensions.
Still confused? Well, watch my short video and it will all become clear. And if you want to dive a little deeper into image quality and resolution, check out this video. Both videos will help make your ordering process smoother, plus it will get your shirts to the printer faster!
Kat has created lots of great holiday-themed design ideas, like those for Christmas, Chanukah and Kwanzaa. But I felt that something was missing…
So I recruited some of our talented artists to create a few awesome designs perfect for celebrating a holiday for the rest of us. That’s right – Festivus! (In case you don’t watch as much TV as I do and thus don’t know what the heck I’m talking about… this holiday was introduced in a 1997 episode of Seinfeld by George’s dad, Frank Costanza). Check out these custom Festivus t-shirt ideas… Read more –>
Have you had the desire to sail the open seas and wear a peg leg, or maybe don a beret and ride your bike down the Champs-Élysées? No? You mean the stripes haven’t gotten to you yet? They are everywhere!! Not just up and down or sideways. There are diagonals, chevrons, skinny, fat, faded, and neon ones. You can’t escape them… so join them! Read more –>
