Are you ordering a wide range of sizes for youth and adult t-shirts? You may be wondering what your design will look like if you proceed with one vs. two art setups.
Normally, when you place an order on a single design, we fit the design to the smallest size t-shirt in the order and use that print size on the rest of the t-shirts. This could mean that if you order a youth size extra small and an adult size 4XL, your print may appear disproportionate on the plus-size adult t-shirt.
If you'd like your design to be more proportionally sized to your range of t-shirt sizes, we would recommend having two art setups. A smaller art setup for the youth t-shirts and a larger art setup for the adult t-shirts. 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. 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.
Here is another helpful article for reference: Why is it so Expensive to Print 2 Sizes of Art?
Please note, it is not required to have two art setups, and sometimes it is not necessary at all. If your design is smaller than about 9.5 inches, if your design just covers the left chest area, or if your design has personalized names and numbers, we do not recommend two sizes of art. We have a great art team that will use their judgment to size your design for the best look on all sizes.
Here is a visual of what your order MAY look like, depending on one or two sizes of art. All orders are different and we understand customers have different budgetary restrictions. If you have questions or concerns about how your artwork would be sized based on the size range of your order, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 888-487-4478.
