Here you can see how small the image came out.

My first T-shirt arrived in the post on Thursday from Spreadshirt in Germany. This was a ‘Women’s Breathable T-shirt’ brandname ‘Alo’. It’s a sort of sports fabric. Really, really lovely quality. Fairly thick but it’s not cotton so it’s sort of more floppy. The detailing is good.
Some problems with my design though. It doesn’t work to size it visually in the Spreadshirt editor. You need to actually decide how many cms you want it and set that either in the editor or in the graphics software. You can resize in the editor without losing quality though, as it lets you upload vector graphics yay!
So I called them up, and they kindly agreed to give a credit note seeing as it was my first one. I think it needs to be bigger, silver and the t-shirt ‘character’ should be straightened rather than at an angle.
Anyway this particular type of t-shirt is the more expensive one, so I might print onto a cheaper one for the next try. It just looks so different on screen than it does in real life. It looks better on than off. But there’s one star that’s really big and sticks out and now I want to change it! How am I ever going to get everything done, when it takes so long tinkering with everything. Maybe I’m being too fussy?
