We will keep the process of creating your design as fun and simple as possible. There are a number of details that need to be determined initially. After that, the fun really starts.
Concept and Artwork
If you already have the design you want, that’s great! If not, we can help you create a design. Look through our sample images for inspiration. However, if you have a specific design in mind, we suggest hiring a freelance graphic designer. Sites like Upwork and Design Outpost provide access to some very talented designers for a great price. Once your design is finalized, we will need that design emailed to us in a file in any of the following formats: .JPG, .PDF, .AI or .EPS. In addition, if you have specific colors (Pantone numbers preferred) please include those.
Decorating Method and Placement
We offer two decorating methods: embroidery and screen printing. There are many options within each of these methods, which we will discuss with you to achieve the look you want. The same options apply for the placement of your design. Some designs are obvious because of size, while others are not. We are here to help and make suggestions when needed.
Selecting Apparel and Accessories
This is the really fun part. The options of what you can do with your design are nearly endless. We have over 18 years of experience working with customers from across many different segments of life. In addition, we have a list of high quality, long established vendors for you to browse their online catalogs for fresh ideas. Let us provide our expertise based on our experience when making your selections.
Based on all of the information and decisions gathered from above, we will illustrate your design in a digital mockup. You can then review and edit before we finish your product.
At this point we will be able to give you a ballpark estimate of the cost of your project. Many factors will influence final pricing, including the decorating method used, quantities needed, apparel or accessories selected, and so on. We will include all of the firm and projected costs so there will be no surprises in your invoice.
Always feel free to call us directly
Texting and email are great. However as we all know, there is no substitute for talking on the phone to convey our thoughts.
As I said initially, we’ve done our best to keep process this as simple and as fun as we can. We love making our customers happy because we love creating the projects our customers are passionate about. We are here when you are ready to get going. I promise, it will be fun!
