Important Information About Using The Design Studio

Standard Print Sizes & Positioning

Do not worry if your design is placed a little too low, or not perfectly centred; we will ensure your design alignment is centred and that the placement from the seams and necklines falls within our standard print size and alignment guidelines. The design studio mock ups are not perfectly to scale. Artwork maybe printed smaller or larger then it appears on your design studio mock up. Please refer to our standard print size guide, if you need a specific print size measurement please include that size in the note section of your order.

We will also try to fix up pixelated artwork or contact you about any issues if we need.

The design studio apparel mock up colours may appear different on your device (computer, tablet, phone) then in real life. While our mock up ups are meant to be a close representation of what you will receive, colours on your screen may vary from what is received in real life.

Printing Black or Dark Colours on Dark Coloured Garments (or printing tone on tone)

When using the design studio we highly recommend against printing black or dark coloured inks on dark garments or printing tone on tone. While they may appear on your computer screen to contrast well, in real life, the result is often different. Some examples of this would be: printing black ink on a black shirts, printing black ink on a dark heather or charcoal shirt, printing white ink on a white shirt, and printing dark colours on navy shirts.
