Our graphics service offers you an opportunity to create a printable template of design t-shirts of your choice. We can render pixel graphics files of yours into vector graphics to prepare them for plotting. We can also optimize vector graphics files so that they comply with our plotting criteria. You can be sure that we will try our best to meet your wishes and requests, in some cases it's even possible to vectorize hand-drawn designs!
To avail yourself of our service, you first need to create a user account. This is completely free of charge.
Having done this, you will find the Graphics Service form if you go to Designs -> Graphics Service. Here you can upload your template and then send it to us. A host of different file formats are possible, e.g. jpg, png, gif, bmp, eps, ai, cdr, svg, psd, pdf.
You will also find a field where you can specify the size your design should have for print. If you leave the field empty, we will try to keep the size down as much as possible. In case you would like to add any requests for customization, you can leave a comment in a special field.
Within 2-5 business days, we will have completed your t-shirt design and it will be available in your user area. You will get a confirmation email including an invoice in the attachment. Then you can print your design on vintage t-shirts , custom sweatshirts , hoodies and jackets.
The Graphics Service is available for $19.99. You can use all methods of payment available at Spreadshirt, and you can also redeem coupons. As soon as the design is available in your user area, we will debit the amount (unless you choose to pay upfront or with PayPal).
We always try our best to realize your requests. But sometimes there are obvious reasons that restrain us from working on a design. These could be due to:
In these cases we will need to cancel the order, and you will get a notification by email. Depending on your method of payment, the money will be transferred back to your account or it will not be debited in the first place. The same is true for designs that have been reworked twice but failed to meet your expectations.
In our example below, you can see how a photo was rendered into a monochromatic vector graphics file. Note: Spreadshirt offers up to 3 colors for plotting. It is important to consider which elements the final graphics should contain. As a consequence, landscape photos featuring many different colors are usually up against impossible odds and will have to be denied.
These designs often require intense research to detect the original typeface. If possible, please supply the name of the font that you used. In case this should not be possible, we will try to find a similar typeface or a font which is more suitable for plotting.
You can also send us a hand-drawn design. We will try our best to vectorize it as good as we can.
