Getting your artwork ready, if your artwork is a physical piece of art you will need to create a digital copy of the artwork, one of the best ways to do this is with CamScanner an app which you can install on your phone, save the image as a JPEG. If you use the free version please be aware that it will add a watermark along the bottom. We recommend leaving extra space at the bottom when creating the JPEG so you can crop out the water mark later.
Once you have saved your artwork and it is ready for printing you can either choose the T Shirt you want from online and add your image and order, we print it up and you can either get it sent to you or collect from in store, or you can come in store with your file and we can print it up for you. The choice is yours.
