Guys and Girlies, the new Submission Kit has finally arrived!
Our old and tired submission kit has finally gotten a makeover. We think that you'll find these new templates are easier to use, and a lot prettier too! Not only are there brand new templates, but there's lots of information for artists in a series of handy PDFs.
Here's what you'll find in the new kit:
Flat illustrated templates of: tees, hoodies, boat necks, tanks, v necks and onesies.
These are similar to the old basic templates, but much nicer.
Photo templates of...you guessed it: tees, hoodies, boat necks, tanks, v necks and onesies.
These are pictures of garments laid flat, and will make your submission look super realistic. (Special thanks to Priscilla Wilson for letting us use her awesome tee template!)
New photos of our oh-so-photogenic staff members wearing an assortment of blank tees.
For those who want to show how their design would look on a human!
All of the templates feature an updated color list with some colors you might not have seen before. As usual, the photo and illustrated templates are designed for Photoshop and Illustrator.
We've also written a series of documents designed to help out seasoned artists and newbies alike. These PDFs include:
- A guide to using our templates and submitting.
- An updated glossary of specialty inks and printing techniques.
- A guide outlining the various reasons for declining a submission.
- A guide to Threadiquette, including our stance on stolen designs, critiques, promotion and spam. (There's a list of Do's and Don'ts here!)
- A checklist of things to consider when creating a good design.
One thing to bear in mind here is that this kit is a continual work in progress. Eventually, you can expect to see more model photos featuring tanks, hoodies, boat necks, etc. Also, as our stock of tees and colors change, so will the templates. If there's anything else that you'd like to see in the kit that's not currently there, don't hesitate to let us know! Email Rachel or Mimi at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is one of the first big projects of a new Community Team comprised of Rachel, Mimi, and Charlie. Our mission is to unlock amazing opportunities and bring you more resources. We hope to engage and inspire you to create even more mind-blowing designs, collaborate, network and, of course, have fun! Keep your eyes out for a post soon more about the great projects we will be working on!
