Free Professional Design Creation & Review

All File Types are Accepted

No matter what format your design gets to us in, we’ll be able to work with them. While our design studio is very robust and accepts many formats, such as .JPG, .GIF, .BMP, .TIFF, .PDF, the software may need to use a placeholder image for formats that cannot be translated into an image. File formats such as .AI, .EPS, .DOC, .XLS, .PPT, and .PSD are given placeholders.

Even though it is only showing a place-holder for your image, rest assured that it has been successfully uploaded! All you have to do is size it to your liking, center it the best you can, choose your preferred ink colors, and check out online. After that, it's as simple as allowing our design team to take care of the rest -- just review your design proofs once they are ready, and we'll proceed with your custom tees production!


Pixelation is every designer's worst fear. Taking the time to create what you feel is a masterpiece, only to have it look boxy, choppy, and sloppy, is a heartbreaking experience. But fear not! Our all-star design team will be happy to clean up your pixelation issues by increasing the size of your image and redrawing your outlines so that your design prints perfectly. We can even change the color of your logo or add an outline. Simply let us know what you’re looking for and we’ll take care of the rest.

Placement & Centering

After you place your order, we take care of all the logistical aspects of production. We double check that your design is placed perfectly on your apparel, and that the alignment, centering, and distance from the neckline is correct (so no need to worry if you are a little off-center or a little too low). We’ll correct any minor issues that we find and send you the final version before we move on to printing.

Removing Background Colors on Your Uploaded Images

When uploading your own design to Rush Order Tees design studio, sometimes a box will appear behind your artwork. In some cases, it is completely different than the shirt color. Not to worry -- This is an easy fix! After placing your order, our designers will remove that background and show you a finished design layout without that extra coloration.

Color Changes

Any piece of artwork can be completely modified, so changing the colors in your image is a breeze! For example, we took this multi-colored image with a white background and changed the look entirely by converting it to just four fluorescent colors. Just let us know what colors you need and our designers will be more than happy to oblige.

Changing Your Uploaded Design

If you need to make changes to your uploaded design, we can help! When you're ready to check out, simply leave us a note detailing the changes you’d like to see, and we’ll make the revisions when your order is placed. You’ll be able to review the finished layout when we send you the final design proofs for your approval.

Adjusting Print Size on Orders With Youth and Adult Apparel

If you are ordering both youth and adult apparel, don't worry! We always make sure that your print will fit on all of the apparel in your order, even if that means making two different print sizes for you! For questions regarding this process, feel free to contact a project specialist at 1-800-620-1233 for more information on sizing.

Ink Color Contrast

We recommend paying particular attention to the contrast between the shirt color and ink colors you select in order to make sure you will be satisfied with the final results. For example, if you think white ink looks great on a forest green t-shirt, go for it. Or if you think red ink looks great on a black t-shirt, no problem. Everyone has unique tastes, but if we feel that you have chosen an ink color that will not be visible on your shirts -- we'll have your back! Should this occur, we will notify you of our concerns by phone or email. If you would like our recommendations before placing your order, feel free to connect with a project specialist by calling us at 1-800-620-1233.

Converting Full Color Images to One Color (Black and White)

We receive plenty of orders from customers looking to print full color images on a budget. While it's not always the most inexpensive process, we offer plenty of alternatives to help your plan come to fruition. For instance, if you're planning a birthday party on a budget and want some commemorative t-shirts for the occasion, our designers can take your image, convert it to black and white, and then print it on whatever color apparel you'd like, thereby cutting overall costs. When it comes to art, anything is possible! Simply let us know what you’re looking for and we’ll make any changes you need.

Simplifying Your Image

Simplifying the colors in a screen printed design is the best way to reduce the cost of an order. For example, we took this Christmas tree, lights and all, and simplified it to include just 3 colors – Black, red and green. We want you to always feel confident that any color change is possible, no matter how complicated the design might be. The best part is that revisions are included with every order, free of charge!

Fades, Gradients, and Halftones

Yes, we can do it! We have mastered the art of creating designs that include gradient colors and halftones. We always recommend you check out our screen printing screen printing samples, just to see some of the work we have printed. If you have questions about your specific artwork, simply call us at 1-800-620-1233 to consult with a project specialist.

Full Color Photographs on White Apparel - CMYK Process

We print full color photographs and artwork every single day. Better known as CMYK, it is routine at Rush Order Tees. Magazines often print full color images on white paper using very small dots of color, and we reproduce full color images using the same method. We blend just four ink colors to create millions of unique color combinations to satisfy any visual palette!

Full Color Photographs on Dark Apparel - Simulated Process

This is considered the final frontier in screen printing, and we've managed to make it look easy! Because of the extra planning and materials needed to print full color images on dark colored items, Simulated Process printing is considered much more difficult than CMYK printing. However, we have mastered the art, and are capable of printing designs that could otherwise require as many as 18 colors. If you are interested in printing full color on dark t-shirts, please call us at 1-800-620-1233 to speak with a project specialist.

Other Printing Locations

We can print on almost any location on your garments, including sleeves, sweatpants legs, sweatshirt hoods and pockets, and even on the inside of your apparel!

If you would like to place an order with a non-traditional print location, simply give us a call at 1-800-620-1233 to speak with a project specialist.

Email, Fax or Explain Your Design by Phone

When it comes to artwork, everyone has their own communication preference. Many customers use email. However, you can also fax us the design or simply give us a call to let us know what kind of artwork you need. We will assist you in completing your order in any way we can, even it if means recreating a black and white fax to make it full color.
