  3. Choose the colour of the T Shirt you are after.
  4. Choose the size you need and how many.
  5. Click the Zoom to make the design area the full size. (Please be aware the background image is for indication only), I have found it best to click on the Zoom button this will bring the design area to maximum, and click zoom to return to product view when complete to get an idea how the finished product will look.
  6. Click on Upload image, browse your computer, tablet or phone for the image you want, you can also choose a photo or image from your Facebook or instagram (Instagram will only work on Tablets and Phones that have an active account, this option is not available on PC’s) accept copyright terms. The image will load, the time this takes will depend on the size of the image and your internet speed.
  7. Adjust your image. You will see in CM the size of your image in the image tab adjust to the required size, position, rotate, crop and remove background colours(clear colors). convert to 1 colour tool will convert to straight black but for other colours will add a colour gradient over the image, this can be a cool effect.
  8. Add more Images as required, in the Layers area you can drag elements up and down, this will move the layer forward and backward in the design area.
  9. Click on Add Text, Type into the text tab. Choose the font you want, our fonts are in catagories to make it easy for you, the font examples will load slowly on most connections but can be speed up by selecting them. Choose the Colour of the Font. Style your Text, Bold, Italics and Underline. Align your Text Right Justification, Left Justification, Center Justification. You can see your size of the text in Cm in this tab. Unlock proportions, this will allow you to make the font height and width different with out affecting the other. Text Curve, this does just what it sounds like it allows you to curve the text this is done by degrees, it is very easy to do, have a go and see how a slight curve to your text can make a big difference. Reverse will reverse the curve. Spacing will space out the text when using the curve. Patterns will add a pattern to the Text this works best with Thick and Heavy fonts.
  10. Add Stock Art, we have loaded Print ready designs into this tab that you can choose from and use. they are in categories to make it easy for you. We have also added a couple of templates that are easy for you to add text to and make a design your very own.
