Derby #475: All-Over Prints


#1

#2

I hate to throw out another question about this derby, but, do we still need to have color separation for these print readies?


#3

Probably not. I’ll check in to make sure though.


#4

They say no BUT: if your design background will be a color other than white, that color will need to be separated into a different layer. Otherwise, the design itself will only need to be one layer.


#5

Awesome, Thanks much ADQ. I may get to participate in this one after all :smiley:


#6

Oh whoa wait… so then if the background is any color than white, that’s going to be ink everywhere? Eek… not liking the idea of an ink encrusted shirt! I wonder if others with all black/colored shirts realize this… I didn’t pick up on that when I made mine.


#7

I thought this was inferred by the lovely pit picture in the blog…


#8

It’s definitely not the texture of a screenprint if that’s your concern. Personally I think the tee feels just as good with or without the ink all over. I don’t think you should worry about the background being different than white.


#9

Yes and no. Dye sublimation infuses the color into the polyester fiber itself, so there’s none of the usual ink feel as there would’ve been with regular screen prints.


#10

damn it. i totally forgot today was thurs… i had a concept for an overall print but now i don’t know


#11

Do it Mecos! this may be our only chance for an all-over :stuck_out_tongue:


#12

Oh it’s not? Because usually shirts with lots of ink are on the stiff side and not so comfy. Good to hear it, thanks!

Ah… ok, that explains it a little more. Thanks Narf!


#13

So, considering the tendency of shirts to shrink, not necessarily always in a uniform way (ie more along the length than the width) do the all over designs end up looking squished when the shirt shrinks?


#14

you know what? i will. but probably not till friday night :stuck_out_tongue:

i went to bed at 3 in the morning last night working late, but i do want to part take.


#15

Dye sub means 100% polyester, so no shrinkage.

That said, is a manufacture/ sizing chart available yet?


#16

You da man, narf.


#17

There’s some really incredible art happening here today!


#18

I’m working on a size chart, but generally these seem to run about a half size larger than our standard Anvil Tees. And just to note, we are just doing these as a unisex tee this time around. We are not making separate women’s and kids’ sizes.


#19

For anyone wanting svg templates that work with inkscape. (inkscape doesnt support the “template layers” used in adobe-land)

I gotta say I’m kinda bummed that no one has made a guts/skeleton submission if you guys need a seriously last minute idea.
