Frequently Asked Questions


Can I upload my own design?

Absolutely, please see our faqs and designing guide, these will help you uploading the best quality image for your custom apparel.
Please note you are responsible for any copyright or rights usage to the images you upload. 

See our legal page for details.

Can I use your stock art?

Yes, you can use any of the stock art, fonts and design elements in our product designer. These cannot be downloaded and are only for use when creating your design on our website.

What's the best file format to upload?

We recommend creating your design in Photoshop and saving your file as a transparent png. A good rule of thumb is make it big, setup at print quality (300dpi) around the size of the print area. This varies from product to product but 12" wide x 15" tall will work best.

Why transparent? using transparency will give you a much better idea of how it will print on the shirt color you choose. If you use a jpeg then it will still have colored pixels in the background. The uploader does give you the option to remove colors but to be sure make it transparent to begin with.

Don't worry you can proof your design before ordering and our designers will always review your file and if we see any obvious issues they will alert you before going to print. Ultimately you are responsible for your file quality but we want you to be happy with your custom shirt so we'll help you as much as possible.

The higher quality file in = the best quality apparel out.

Most orders will be printed in 2-3 business days, this can vary depending on workload and shirt availability. Not all sizes and colors are in stock although we try to carry depth for the most popular product lines.
