A vector is the very best. If it was created in Adobe illustrator, or Corel Draw, it should work. These files have suffixes like .ai, .cdr, .pdf, .eps

A jpg or a png file has to be at least 3 mg in size to be big enough to go on the back of your shirt. Inside the file it should be 13″ wide and have the resolution of 200 to 300 dpi.

About color:
Dye Sublimation can accommodate any number of colors, fades anything that can be printed in a magazine. We do request that each order have one set of transfers, except for special orders, harmonized color or personalized shirts. We will make small modifications if required at no charge.

For all positions:
Soft edges in the art are better.
Any color, any coverage – solid large area dark colors don’t transfer the best.
We do not charge to set your art up for our dye sub printer with correct margins and paper positioning.

Full Back:
Includes full back, one sleeve and left chest
13″ x 18″ – best not to be a hard edge, irregular edges print and look better.
200 to 300 dpi or vector.

Half Back:  
Includes halfback, one sleeve and left chest.
13″ wide by 8″ tall
200 to 300 dpi or vector.

3″ max by 16″ max
200 to 300 dpi or vector art.
We do not charge to design your sleeve.

Left chest:
4.5″ by 2″ for horizontal logos
3″ for square or circular logos
200 to 300 dpi or vector art.

We do not print white. Where the art has no color, the shirt color shows through.
We print all colors, except white, no restrictions, even photographs, in our transparent dye sublimation inks. We are dying the fabric, there is no rubber patch on top of the fabric like silkscreen that stops all breathe-ability and gets hot. No matter how large the area that is decorated, the dye sublimated fabric remains breathe-able and moisture wicking.

While we do charge for added effects:
Harmonized Color
Personalized Shirts

We do not charge for minor improvements or changes to your artwork that you provide.

If we create digital art for you, we do not release it to you in digital form to use on other products or with other manufacturers. We will release it to you for a reasonable design fee or sponsorship consideration.

With quantities over 200 we can discount for no sleeve or no crest.

We cannot print on Black or dark colored shirts because, in our dye sublimation process, we dye the fabric with transparent inks. These transparent inks will not show up on dark colors. Dye sublimation dyes the fabric and allows the fabric to remain breathable. However because of the transparency, the dyes combine with the shirt color, and the art looks a bit darker on darker colors. See examples on different colored shirts here.

It really depends on what brand that you are used to wearing. Our ACTIVE FIT shirts in XL to 3XL fits one size smaller than the BIGGER FIT LINE. The smaller sizes in the BIGGER FIT line go smaller than the ACTIVE FIT line.

Manufacturers around the world have different standard sizes which makes for fitting divergence between brands. Nowadays is best not to blindly order your usual size, but to know the measure of the shirt itself.
Follow these 3 easy steps to get the fit you want from Custom UPF:
1. Tell your team to measure a favorite fitting T-shirt one inch below the armpits while it lays flat on a table. Use a measuring tape or a yard stick.
2. Go to the column titled “Flat Chest Measure of Shirt” or “Chest Measure”.
3. Find the closest to your shirt’s measurement, and choose that size.
Chest, waist and hip measures the same in these shirts.
These shirts have extra long sleeves to protect your wrists while you cast or sail.


There are no returns on custom orders for sizing issues, so please spend some time with the size chart page.

These UPF 50+ (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) shirts have Cool and Dry 100% polyester wicking fabric. Above all, they offer the ultimate comfort and sun safety in hot, humid climates. Excellent moisture wicking first layer in cold climates. Double stitched (very durable). Antimicrobial (odor resistant).

All Polyester wicking fabric is vulnerable to snags and should be kept away from sunscreen, which stains all fabric. If your shirt gets soiled, apply full strength liquid laundry detergent with no fabric softener and let sit before laundering. Vigorous rubbing the fabric together with the soap can dislodge stains, and will not stretch the fabric or remove the decoration.

Machine wash: cold water, separate colors. No softeners. No bleach. Do not dry clean. Hang to dry or tumble dry low.

Stains: Avoid contact with sunscreen, which stains all fabric. Stains can be addressed promptly by applying full-strength liquid laundry detergent with no fabric softener and let sit before laundering. Vigorous rubbing the fabric together with the soap can dislodge stains, and will not stretch the fabric or remove the decoration.

Iron: with a cool iron when necessary. Use the lowest (coolest) steam setting, over the whole shirt, including the image usually marked “WOOL”.  Avoid the decoration when ironing. Do not iron when turned inside out. Iron only one layer at a time.

Snags: All Polyester performance wicking fabric is vulnerable to snags. Push a needle threader through the fabric from the underside. Then put the snagged thread through the needle threader. Pull the needle threader back through while pulling the snag to the underside of the fabric to make it less visible.

Breathability: Because it is dye sublimated, your performance wear shirt is breathable everywhere, including the decoration. It is not decorated with a large rubber silkscreen stamp. Instead, the color is dyed into the fabric. It will not crack or peel and the garment will not warp, as a cotton t-shirt might do.

The image is dyed into the fabric, and will not interrupt the breathability of the fabric. Conversely, silkscreen or vinyl transfers is a rubbery stamp that prevents breathability of the fabric under it which creates a hot spot in the sun.

Using a high pressure heat press and special polyester inks are transferred to the performance fabric from a digitally created transfer.
