We want to make ordering your custom apparel project as easy as possible. We can use your artwork or we can create one for you. 

Because we want your project to look its best, we will NOT proceed with the order if your artwork is low resolution or poor quality. Please check these specs below to make sure we can use your artwork.

We will accept artwork in any form, but the quality of the supplied artwork can affect the cost and time required to complete your project. While we can scan images, it's best if we have a native or digital format.

GRAPHIC SIZING

To expedite the process, we ask that Adobe Illustrator files be sized to fit the smallest shirt in your order. We use the same size graphic for all t-shirts, unless you request otherwise. In which case there would be an additional cost. For Adobe Photoshop files, make sure the graphic(s) are at least 300 dpi.
