Wrap Around Design

I have a design I want to submit. Its just a one colour line drawing that I want to wrap around from front of t-shirt to back. How can I show this and not have it be rejected? I did not see a back of t-shirt template to download. Thanks!

Look here. Specify 'belt printing', which is ok with monochrome designs.

One color is fine.

Wraparound/belt printing is good for up to 3 colors, but the less is better.

3+ colors undergo a process called dye sublimation

Really? With acceptable registration?

Wraparound or just one-side oversize?

Just a reminder that you can print all over on the front and back but a true wraparound print where the design covers the front and the back and continues seamlessly on the side is next to impossible. There will almost always be some kind of misalignment under the arms.

Well if you only print one side of a sublimated tee the other side would just be white and how dumb would that look!

It's an interesting technique, you print a huge tee shape picture on transfer paper, then apply magic so the ink embeds in the fabric:

Awesome! Morkki, you're my favorite google-fu!

Thank you Manupix I was going to ask the same question.
