Also, is there a fee to enter the contest?
There is no fee to enter this contest

The background should be transparent exactly like the attachment in your next post.

There was a white layer over the top of the image which the designer used to help keep the file size down.

Hello,

I believe it was mentioned before, but I correct this? It's going to drive me nuts to see that on a shirt...

No, you don't have to correct the artwork Pretend it was a customer's artwork that they are giving you to print as is

You won't lose any points for having the hard edge just like it is in the graphic (and you won't get any extra for correcting it )

It is for direct to garment printing only. So DTG printers that print directly onto the garment

The versacamm is a vinyl cutter that also prints, but it doesn't print directly onto the garments, it prints onto heat transfer film which is later applied to the garments with a heat press.

Who else is in?

Hey Rodney,

Can we wash the shirt after we print to get rid of excess pre-treat or does it have to be submitted right off the heat press?

Thanks!

The t-shirt should not be washed before it is shipped.

It should be delivered just like you'd deliver it to a customer. Right off the press

Ok just checking...We do sometimes end up washing a garment before giving it to a customer. If they ask us to and won't be able to wash it themselves before wearing.

This also came up last year and the consensus was that the t-shirts generally weren't washed before delivering to the customer.

With all the allergies people have, it seemed like it would be a risk to wash it beforehand. Plus, as a customer myself, I wouldn't want to wear a washed t-shirt not knowing how/where it was washed. Seems like it would feel kind of used

I'll also be doing a wash test myself, so I wouldn't want to throw an extra wash in before I get it to throw off the results.
