Tips for Uploading Traditional Art In Our Design Center

We love it when our customers use their custom shirts to express themselves! That includes uploading their personal art onto tees, tanks, and more. Over the year’s people have asked us a lot of questions on the best practices for uploading their artwork. We put some of those questions, along with our handy tips, in this article to try and help designers with their designs.

How will pictures of paintings work out from a printing standpoint?

Pictures of paintings should work just fine, as long as the digital image of it looks good. You can upload your digital image of the painted picture right into our design center and you will see a preview. Files can be PNG, JPEG or GIF formats. 

How do you get something the has been hand-drawn onto a shirt?

You can simply just take a photo of it with your phone or camera. You can use the editing app on your phone to make any adjustments like cropping. Then you can upload it in to our Design Center!

How do we crop, put a border, or add text to our art?

If you want to crop the photo down, you will want to do that in the editor on your phone. It will be easier that way!

To add a border or a frame, just hit our Add Art tab and search “frames”. You’ll find lots of great options. Position your image where you want it, choose your frame, and then drag your frame on top of it.

The same is true for adding other clipart, just hit Add Art then search for whatever type of clip art you want to add.

To add text to your design, hit the Add Text tab and type in the available text boxes. You can add additional lines of text by hitting the + Add Another Line Of Text button.

How can I get the background lighter? It’s grey in the design preview?

We can remove that for you prior to printing, no problem. You can leave a note in the special instructions section at checkout to remove the grey background. 

Does the shirt have to be white, or can it be any color shirt?

Yes, we can certainly print the image on any color shirt you want! Just keep in mind that white shirts will provide the best-looking print most of the time. Also, keep in mind that you don’t want to put similar colors on top of each other as they become difficult to see. So if your art has a lot of green in it, you may not want to put it on a green shirt.

We hope you found these tips useful! As always, feel free to reach out to us if you have any questions that weren’t answered here.

Now get back to decorating some awesome custom shirts!

Your partner will adore the fact you took it upon yourself to schedule and commit to an activity he/she has always looked forward to doing.
