Last week I got an email from a lady who wanted to print over the shoulder of a shirt and off the edge of another. Unfortunately we can't screen print designs like that. We get a lot of requests like this, so I am going to write a post about it hopefully to save some heartache in the future.
First off, we can only print in a 12"x17" rectangle:
That restricts how big your design can be, but if you really think about it, it will cover most of the front of a shirt.
Here is an example of what one of our customers was wanting:
The below design would not fit with our screen size either. Also notice how it goes right to the neck line. We have to stay 2" away from the edge of any clothing item:
Another question we get a lot is, "Can I print over a zipper." Surprisingly we can print over a zipper as long as there is a lip covering the zipper. Here is an example we printed today:
We can also print a design wrapped around the side of a shirt. I don't have a picture of any right now, but when one comes through, I will be sure to post it.
