Follow these 6 simple steps to design and prepare your Long Sleeve T-Shirt for global print with Cloudprinter.com:

  1. Decide whether you want to print on the front or the backside of the Long Sleeve T-Shirt.
    You can choose whatever fits you best — place your picture on the front or the backside of your Long Sleeve T-Shirt. 
  2. Keep in mind that the print area on the Long Sleeve T-Shirt is fixed — 16х14 in (406.4х355.6 mm). 

    The print area doesn't change depending on the size of your Long Sleeve T-Shirt. You can only include your picture within the limits of the print area — 16х14 in (406.4х355.6 mm). 

    You can either print a picture in the maximum possible size (16x14 in) or place a picture of a smaller size wherever you want within the limits of the print zone. 

    It concerns printing both on the front and back sides of your Long Sleeve T-Shirt. 

  3. Choose from available Long Sleeve T-Shirt sizes.

    There are several available Long Sleeve T-Shirt sizes at Cloudprinter.com — from S to 6XL. 

    Choose the one that fits you best and keep in mind that the print zone remains the same independently of the Long Sleeve T-Shirt size.  

    For now, only regular fit Long Sleeve T-Shirts with a round neck are available, but more types are coming soon. 

  4. Opt for Long Sleeve T-Shirt material and colour.

    Currently, there are 8 available Long Sleeve T-Shirt colours at Cloudprinter.com — grey, ash, white, black, blue, yellow, green, and red. 

    You can also check the accessible Long Sleeve T-Shirt materials and choose the one you like. 

  5. Select the picture for your Long Sleeve T-Shirt.

    Make sure your picture quality and size are appropriate for the Long Sleeve T-Shirt print area. 

    That's important to make sure the picture isn't blurred and meets your expectations when printed. 

    You can go for a multi-colour or 1-2 colours picture — whatever is better for you.

  6. Prepare file for printing.
  • Set 300 DPI resolution
  • Choose RGB print;
  • Save the file in PDF/X-4

   

Well done! Now you can print your Long Sleeve T-Shirt all over the world as close to the delivery destination as possible.
