Here's the custom design center. You can scroll down below it to see easy step-by-step instructions for using the design center to create custom eye-catching custom designs.
I highly recommend getting multiple shirts so you'll always have one clean and available. I also like to keep several shirts in my vehicle. That way no matter where I go, I always have shirts to pick from. I always have the right shirt for the situation.
Now you can design your own custom t-shirts, polo shirts, sweatshirts, hats, buttons, and other cool stuff with your promotional message!
Watch this video to see how easy it is to create your own custom branded, one of a kind clothing!
You will see three tabs along the right side of the custom design center tool.
The apparel tab is where you need to start. This is where you select the item you would like to place designs on. Just below the word APPAREL on the apparel tab, you will see a drop down menu. From this menu you can select Men, Women, Kids & Babies, Accessories, Exclusive Line or New Apparel. After you make your selection, you will also see a second drop down menu. This menu allows you to jump to exactly what you are looking for.
Here's a few examples...
Women/Long Sleeve Shirts
You can also use the scroll bar along the right side of the designer to look at all items.
* To see a description of any item, hover your mouse over the image.
Simply click on the item you would like to add designs to. Once you click it, it will appear on the left side of the design tool.
The design tab is where you will find all of the available designs that can be placed on the chosen items such as t-shirts, polo shirts,buttons etc. Simply click on any image. It will automatically be placed on the item you selected. You will see the item on the left of the designer, along with the image you placed on it.
You can also upload your own custom design(s) to use. It can be a company logo or something else you would like to have printed on the item(s) you purchase. To upload your own image(s) just click the Upload Design link which appears just below the designs window in the designer.
You can easily move the designs around and place them where you would like them to appear on the item. To move them, simply make sure the design is selected on the item by clicking it. Next (while holding your mouse button down) move the item where you would like it to go. When you are happy with the placement of the item, let go of your mouse button.
You can also use the Edit Design box to resize, rotate,center the image etc.
The text tab is where you can add your own custom text to your chosen item. To add text (such as a message, web site address etc.) enter your text in the Input Text area.
Just below the text input area you will see a drop down menu. This menu has several font choices. You can play with different fonts until you find one that you like and of course is really easy to read.
You can also justify your text either left, center or right by clicking on the Justify button.
Above the chosen item you will see a linked name of the item such as Men's Heavyweight T-Shirt for example. Clicking on this link will pop up a window which will give you more detailed information about the item such as sizes, measurement, product description etc.
Just below the linked item description, you will see a front, back, left sleeve and right sleeve thumbnail. This is if you selected a shirt of course. Clicking on each of these thumbnails will change the large view of the item. This is how you place designs on to the front, back and sleeves of the items.
Just to the right of the shirt view thumbnails is a color selector. Simply click the small color icon to change the color of the item. Just make sure the designs are easily readable on the chosen color shirt etc.
Add to Cart
After you have finished your custom design and have carefully checked to make sure it is exactly the way you want it to look, next click the Add to Cart button. From here you can either purchase the item you just created, or you can create another product. Once you have finished designing all the items you want, you simply review the items and make your purchase.
That's it! See, I told you it was simple.
Here's how simple it is...
Here's some design tips...
When you are using the designer, you should first take the time to get to know what the options allow you to do. This will prevent you from creating a design, ordering it, and then realizing it didn't turn out quite the way you wanted.
Look at the design that appears on the breast of this shirt.
Now of course this image isn't actual size so you expect the design to be smaller in comparison. However, what I'm showing you here is the default size of the breast image relative to the shirt placement when you use the position on chest button in the designer.
Personally I prefer to have the images I place on the chest of a polo shirt to be as large as they possibly can be. Your only restriction on size is the buttons. Your image can not extend past the buttons. The reason for this is obvious. The design can not be printed on top of the buttons.
Take a look at this next image. Notice how much bigger and more noticeable the design is? It's larger relative to the rest of the shirt.
Imagine a square which runs from the side of the buttons to the right edge of the shirt and then from the point of the right collar tip to the bottom of the design.
In the designer there is a sliding bar you can use to increase or decrease the size of the designs. In this example I simply used it to make the design smaller than it originally displayed but still larger than the default size if I had used the position on chest button.
I like the look of the larger image on the chest better. That's just my personal preference. You may prefer it the other way. It's always up to you. I think it's more visible when it's a bit larger. You may opt for a more subtle effect.
Here's how the image appears by default without resizing. Of course you may want to place the full size image on the shirt as well. Personally I love using large designs on the front and back of all of my shirts. This ensures maximum visibility and impact coming and going!
My thinking here is that I'm wearing the branded clothing to stand out. I want as many people as possible to see the message. And I want to make sure it easily commands attention and then holds it long enough to be read. After all, this is the whole point of this strategy.
Some of the shirts allow you to change the color of the collar and arm bands. By changing the color to a more eye grabbing one can give your overall shirt more noticeable appeal.
Also look at this shirt and where the design is placed. It is centered on the shirt. I placed it as high up as I could without being too close to the collar and design to compete with each other. I wanted the red to draw the eye only. Then after the eye has been drawn, I wanted people to be able to clearly see the message on the shirt.
Also notice the empty space that appears just below the design. I could have simply centered this design on the center of the shirt both horizontally and vertically. And if I had done so the shirt would have looked great.
However, look at this next shirt. Notice how I used one of the designs from the Notes category. I also positioned the design to the right edge of the shirt.
I positioned the image all the way to the right to demonstrate how you can play with positioning to attract the eyes even more.
People are used to seeing designs on shirts that are centered. If you look at most shirts you will see this. The thing you've got to be mindful of is the fact that your objective here is to get as much attention as possible. You want as many people as you can get looking at your shirt. You want them to see your message.
So it is important for you to attract the eye and give it something out of the expected norm to look at. This will always attract more eyeballs!
Now look at this shirt. Notice how I used another design from the notes category. This time I centered the design.
Also notice how I'm using a design from one category and then also using another one which answers the question from the first. This will give you unlimited design combinations. And it is for this reason that I created many of the designs.
Sleeves are an often overlooked element of the shirt design. However they really should NOT be neglected. It only costs a few bucks extra to add designs to the sleeves. And it is so worth it in the long run.
The objected here is to wear these shirts and get your marketing message noticed. This means from every angle. Sure people can see your shirt (and your marketing message) from the front and also from the back. But what happens when people are standing beside you? Unless you have a design on each sleeve, all they see is a regular shirt sleeve.
I strongly encourage you to keep this in mind when you are using the designer. When you get your shirts and see the difference, and how much more visually appealing the shirts are with the sleeves utilized, you will be really glad you took my advice here.
This next tip is more of a conveinent strategy.
There will be times when it isn't convenient for you to wear a promotional shirt everywhere you go. For these times I suggest you grab a few jackets. The unisex track jackets pictured above are great examples of this. Having some jackets in your vehicle makes it really fast and easy for you to simply grab one, put it on, and instantly be in promotional mode!
I've also given you some further examples of how you can utilize the available designs by mixing and matching them to create clothing. This jacket style has a zipper down the middle which makes it a snap to quickly put it on over a shirt and tie, a uniform shirt, or anything else.
Also note the way I've positioned the designs on each jacket. This will give you some creative design ideas. Just because you have a limitation of a zipper doesn't mean you can't still be creative.
I can not stress enough the importance of making sure you pick a text font and color combination that can be easily read. I personally prefer white shirts. I believe the designs and text pop off them better. I also believe they are visible from a greater distance. However, this does mean that a colored shirt will not be effective. The key is to pick colors and designs that complement each other and allow your marketing message to really stand out as best it can.
You should understand that the key here is to create shirts that stand out and make your promotional message pop off the shirt. You aren't going for a matching color combination that blends as you normally would with regular clothing. Always remember, you want your message to jump out at people.
Another thing that can make text and also designs in general harder to read is distortion. Distortion occurs when a design or text is placed over an overweight body. This tends to stretch them or to otherwise distort them from their intended or original position.
You know your body. You know whether or not you have a large belly. You also know (ladies) whether or not you have a large chest. You have to be mindful of how the designs and text are going to appear on any clothing item you wear.
Ladies let's face it. You have a distinct advantage over us guys when it comes to this department. If you have a large chest, it is quite natural and most likely that you are going to get many more looks. And that's a great thing. So use it!
Yes you can take advantage of this natural occurrence. Use it to your advantage. Just be mindful of where and how you place designs and text so they are distorted in a 3D effect for example that will enhance their view instead of one that may distort them and make them much less readable. Quotes, multiple lines of text, and large designs may be better suited below your bust line to make them easier to read depending upon your size.
And guys if you have a large wide back, use it! Think of it as a billboard! It is!
Don't be shy. Don't be afraid to create shirts and jackets that really stand out and command attention - Remember, you are a billboard!
