ARTWORK & DESIGN
Our highly creative and experienced art department will work closely with you to produce a terrific original T-shirt design or develop a professional corporate logo.
We use CorelDRAW and Photoshop in conjunction with beautiful hand illustration. We can work with your rough sketch or reproduce a full-color photograph or painting.
Whether you know exactly what you want your design to look like, or just have a general idea, you will always be thrilled with our art department’s finished product. We will send you a rough sketch when we start the project, to be sure we are on the right track, then a final proof will be provided for your sign off before we produce your order.
