Ok I have a friend who has a garment printing company they do the printint before the apparel is stiched up so really you are very flexible on what you design. I would like a funky t shirt designed that I will get printed this is a free for all so go with whatever you think will make a cool design. Or you can just play with this template to mess around for yourself.... I forgot to mention in the video I think it is to use the Cmyk colour scheme in the printing process. If you come up with a design then please re upload the psd renamed to your forum name along with a jpeg image of the main design as a preview.
here is the template from the video. Ok the psd is to big so I am using media share so just upload a jpeg file and of on the t shirt and a jpeg with the art group merged together so I can just merge that into the clipping mask create hoogle a tshirt.psd

You didn't say how big you'll need it? A4 is my guess?

P.S. I'm not good at design and don't think i'll make one but that's important information to others.

that is set for a medium size apparantly the printing size is multiplied so does not actually print the same size as what you see on the screen. I dont understand it exactly but I trust him he has done some cool pics and I only based the template on the dimensions he suggested the rest will be tweaked they dont print from that psd only the graphics layer that goes into another actual template

This sounds like fun Hoogle! I got a t-shirt template with "Digital Artist" magazine, is it the same one? I just unpacked it yesterday and haven´t really taken a close look at it yet. With "Funky" you mean what? :)

Thank you I got the front part in my email I can actually use my back on your front if that makes sense. I prefer your template it has a bit more realistic look about it than my attempt lol.

Yeah, it wouldn´t let me send the back part, it said that it was too big, I didn´t know that a psd could be too big, I thought that they were compressed in some way. This is interesting because i was going to send a psd to ibclare with something else and I might have problems now I see. How big are they allowed to be, do you know?

Save it as TIF with LZW compresion. It will have all layer etc but will be much smaller. I work only with tifs for that reason.

P.S. PSD had no compresion at all.

Ok, Seniors S! I will try to figure out how to do that! On the other hand, I just found out that it could be my stupid e-mail server provider or whatever it´s called in English, I think they may have put some kind of limit on how large files I can send, I will open a new account with something else then also that will allow larger files.

and another. After this, slightly more original designs when I have the time. Both of these are taken from your FB pages. I think the lifebouy should be slightly more off-center.
