Here’s everything you need to know about our newest tool, and how you can use it to create your very own custom masterpiece.
Pick the perfect apparel
Anyone can make a custom T-shirt, but what about custom sweatshirts, hoodies, tanks and more? We have a full selection of high-quality apparel pieces you can use as your base in tons of vibrant colors.
Bundle up for the winter in a cozy custom sweatshirt, or feel the summer breeze in a cool custom tank. No matter what the weather or climate is like, you can choose a base that’s perfect for any season. Don’t forget the kids, either. We have a selection of baby, toddler and youth apparel so that the whole family can get it on the customized fun!
Drag and drop your dream design
Don’t worry if you’ve never designed custom clothing before. Our custom design editor is super intuitive and easy to use! All you have to do is drag and drop design elements into the printable area. Think that star would look nicer a little to the left? Just pick it up and drag it there. Want it twice as big? Grab the scale tool and double the size. The editor will auto-center elements for you, so you don’t have to worry about your print being off-kilter.
Pick a template or design from scratch
Need help getting your creative juices flowing? We have a ton of pre-made design templates to get you started. There’s a customizable template for just about any occasion. Just replace the text with your own dates, names, or custom message for a unique print and we’ll ship it right away.
Would you rather craft something from scratch? You can do that too with our text, image, and shape tools. You can even start with a premade template and add or subtract design elements until you’re happy with the results. It’s your custom design, so feel free to make it as simple or complex as you want!
Get your message out with gorgeous fonts
Are you a font fanatic? You’ll be in paradise here. We have so much more than just a few basic options. We have a full library of 800 professional fonts to choose from, ranging from bold slab serifs to elegant handwriting fonts. Change the size of your text, bend it, stretch it, wrap it, add custom colors and so much more. Whatever you want to say, you can say it with style.
Upload your own images
With our image uploader, you can add custom images and logos to your designs! Wear a family photo of a memorable vacation, or upload your company logo to rep your brand loud and proud. Our production team will select ink colors to match your image, so you’ll get maximum color accuracy in your print. You can also specify any custom colors in your design notes, so that your finished T-shirt will be picture-perfect.
Customizable clip art and versatile shapes
Want a little imagery without having to bring in a custom logo? No problem. We have a massive clip art library filled with animals, people, objects, places and even more high-quality artwork. Just like everything else, you can even customize the colors! Celebrate Halloween with a spooky orange pumpkin, or create a mascot for your sports team with your custom palette.
We also have a selection of unique shapes perfect for making your designs stand out. From basic shapes like squares, circles, and triangles to complex elements like arrows, speech bubbles, clouds, paw prints and so much more. Add custom outlines through the advanced SVG editor, or leave them basic for a simple design that’s worth 1,000 words.
Layers and layers of fun
When you drag and drop a design element onto your shirt, it creates a layer that’s separate from everything else. Stack design elements on top of each other for a layered look, or toggle each layer’s visibility to try out different design choices. Layers keep everything neat and organized, giving you total control over your custom design.
Save and share your favorite designs
Once you’re happy with your custom creation, you can save your design and share it with friends. Send your group a link for feedback, then make any final adjustments before placing your order. If you want to sleep on it, just save it to your design collection and you can order prints whenever you feel like it!
All-inclusive customer service
When we say your satisfaction is guaranteed, we mean it. We want your prints to come out as amazing as they possibly can. That’s why we review your designs before shipping them out. We’ll let you know if there will be any problems or difficulties printing your design, so that your custom creations turn out exactly as you envision them. It’s even included in the price of your order along with shipping. No hidden fees here!
Coming soon to iPhone and Android
As if all this wasn’t awesome enough, we’re also developing a mobile app coming soon to Apple and Android app stores. Soon you’ll be able to create and order custom apparel no matter where in the world you are! Stay tuned for more updates on this awesome development.
