Okay, you may think we've gone raving mad but I can assure you we are completely straight about this!
We've realised that our users are some of the most tallented designers out there so we think it's about time we tapped this amazing resource!
We also know that some of our users would love to have access to a wide range of predesigned garments so we've come up with a plan that means you
can make money from your designs.
Fancy a fiver without strings attached?
As soon as that great idea pops in to your head, get it down on the old PC or Mac and email it to us. Our design team will take a
look and if we can use it (and we should be able to as we know you guys are great designers) we'll add it to our site and pay you £5.00 to your PayPal
account - it's really that simple. You could really make a mint from a few hours spent desiging. We don't limit the number of entries so fill your
boots and send over as many as you like.
Some things to remember.
Not all designs can be printed succesfully so please keep in mind that complicated designs are not always the most popular. Use a couple of colours
and stay away from tints, gradients and shades. Solid colours always work better for t-shirt designs so no need to go overboard. That's not to say
we don't want complex design ideas, just keep in mind printing it on your own printer is quite a bit easier than making a cool garment that will last
in the washing machine.
Artwork should ideally be in a vector format such as Adobe Illustrator, Vectored EPS or Corel Draw.
Alternatively we can work from high resolution JPG files, or Photoshop PSD files.
Please ensure all fonts and strokes are outlined or turned in to images.
We cannot print over seams.
That's pretty much it, so what's stopping you? When you've got an idea to show us email a low resolution JPG (you know that we can't print from these so you'll know
we're not trying to steal your work) over to firstname.lastname@example.org
for us to review. We'll always get back to you regardless of if we can use it. For more information feel free to call us on our free-phone 08000 278660.
Designs that would really float our boat!
Although we would encourage you to send in design ideas for whatever you come up with, we would love to see designs associated with parties, special occasions,
weddings, hen & stag nights, teams and sports. But anything goes as far as we are concerned.
Don't be a plank!
Please don't send us materials that you don't own the copyright to or things stollen from other websites. We definately don't want anything inappropriate or designs that
individuals or groups would find highly offensive - you know the sort of thing we mean, and if you don't, well, we probably don't want your designs anyway.
We want you to provide your original designs as rehashed copyrighted material really doesn't sell very well, and gets us in trouble!
