Using the TEE-MAKER is Easy!
Pick your shirt style and color
Currently, we offer the Gildan 2000, which comes in a large variety of colors and styles for men, wome, and youth. Please note, when choosing the shirt color, some are not available in ladies and youth styles. When you select a color, the styles and sizes available will automatically appear below.
When you have selected the shirt color, click >NEXT at the bottom
STEP 2: Add Text
Here you can type in the text you want on the shirt in the first field. Then you can pick the font, the size of the letters, and choose the ink color. You can also choose from several cool effects to put on the text, and a rotation tool to position it any way you want on the shirt. Once you have selected the features, you click the ADD TEXT button and it will place it on the garment. You can then click on the text and drag it to any part of the shirt. If it doesn't come out how you wanted, you simply click and drag the text into the trash. It may take a few attempts as you get used to how things are sized and how the text effects work.
If you have no text to put on the shirt, simply by-pass this screen by clicking >NEXT at the bottom.
When you are satisfied with how the text looks, click >NEXT at the bottom
STEP 3: Add Clipart
Here is where the fun begins! We have put a library of images together for you to use.
(If you have your own art to add, you can by-pass this screen by clicking >NEXT at the bottom. The next step will cover adding your own art)
There are several clipart categories in the first box - if you click on the arrow to the left of the category, it will bring up a bunch of sub-categories under each one. When you click on any one of these, it will show you thumbnails of each clipart in that folder in the screen below. This screen has a scroll-bar to the right, so be sure to scroll down to see all of the clipart in each category.
When you find an image you want to use, just click on it so it is highlighted. Then you need to pick an ink color for it, as well as a size. If you want to rotate or flip the image, be sure to select those features before you add the art. When you are satisfied with the features, click on 'Add Art' and it will place the art on the t-shirt. You may have to try this out a few times if the image is too small or large. Simply click and drag the image into the trash if you do not like how it came out.
We will continue to add clipart to this program, but if you do not find what you are looking for, please e-mail our sales department or call us at 888-983-3625 for assistance.

STEP 4: Upload Art
In this section, you can add your own art or images. Simply follow the steps to upload art by clicking on 'upload file'. This will open up a browser window in which you locate the file on your computer and click 'open'. Once the file is uploaded, you have a few tools to render the appearance of your art on the t-shirt. You can make the image a 1-color, you can flip the image, you can use the sliders to change the transparency/background of the image, and manipulate size and rotation of the art. Please note that there are certain types of image files that can be used - this is covered in our FAQ's page, or you can e-mail our sales department or call us at 888-983-3625 for assistance.
