Having multiple art setups is optional but it is important to understand how this affects the sizing of your artwork from a production standpoint. If you include both youth and adult shirts on a single saved design, the artwork will be sized based on the smallest size of t-shirt. This same size of artwork will be printed across all shirts which may look disproportionate on the larger adult sizes. If you have sizes smaller than youth medium, this is when we recommend two art setups. A smaller art setup for the youth t-shirts and a larger art setup for the adult t-shirts. Here is how to do just that.
You will save two designs in our Design Studio. One for the youth t-shirts and a second for the adult t-shirts (Ex: Design name 1 - Family Reunion Adult / Design name 2 - Family Reunion Youth). Once both designs are saved, you'll be able to add them to the cart. Our system will recognize the two separate designs when added to the cart and you will get charged appropriately for a separate art setup per style of t-shirt.
If you decide to have two art setups, this becomes two orders from a production standpoint. This is because the handling and production process is exclusive per art setup. If you have a single order of 100 shirts, the piece price is based on 100 t-shirts. If you decide to separate this into a 50pc youth t-shirt order, and 50pc adult t-shirt order, the price point is based on 50 vs. 100. Ultimately, including multiple art setups does increase the cost per t-shirt. Determining what's a priority for your order (budget, artwork sizing, etc) will help you decide on how to move forward. Below gives you a rough idea of what the price difference may look like.
The estimated price difference for a basic cotton tee with a 1 color, 1 placement design:
100 shirts - one art setup for all sizes: $7.00 ea.
100 shirts - two art setups (50 youth shirts, 50 adult shirts): $8.00 ea.
The estimated price difference for a basic cotton tee with a 1 color, 2 placement design:
100 shirts - one art setup for all sizes: $8.00 ea.
100 shirts - two art setups (50 youth shirts, 50 adult shirts): $10.00-$11.00 ea.
