T-shirt Guidelines and Order Form

  1. Complete this webform or submit files and order specifications with payment method via email to reprographics@ucdavis.edu.
  2. Provide a separate jpg or pdf file for each image, referencing the location in the file name (full front, left chest, right chest, full back, right sleeve, left sleeve etc.).
  3. T-shirts will print in the color(s) prepared in the file, with the exception of white which is ignored. The printed colors on the garment will be less vibrant than what you might see on your screen or printed on paper. Light colors get lighter when printed on fabric, and may not show up depending on how dark of a shirt is being used. Minimum tint should be 25%.
  4. Words and images must be consistent with the UC Davis Principles of Community. http://occr.ucdavis.edu/poc/
  5. In submitting the file to print, you as the designer and customer are responsible for any copyright (http://manuals.ucdavis.edu/PPM/250/250-01.pdf) or trademark infringement (http://manuals.ucdavis.edu/PPM/310/310-65.pdf)  (if any occur).
  6. Files should be set up to sizes not to exceed (to approximate size in inches divide pixels at each dimension by 300):
    Location Size in inches Resolution Size in pixels
    Full front or back 14" x 16" 300 dpi 4200 x 4800 pixels
    Left or right chest

    1" x 4" recommended
    (4" x 4" maximum)

    300 dpi 300 x 1200 pixels
    Left or right sleeve 4" x 4" recommended
    (4" x 8" maximum)
    300 dpi 1200 x 1200 pixels


  7. Standard sizes: S-XL in unisex t-shirts. 2XL and larger may be available by special order at an additional charge.
  8. T-shirts in stock are white, gray and natural. Additional colors may be ordered for an additional charge. Dark colors are not well suited for this printer but we have partners we can use if needed and pricing will be subject to their rates.
  9. Most orders can be completed within 5 working days. Orders of 10 shirts or less in standard sizes and colors are often completed within 2 days.
  10. Student orders will be picked up at 176 Hoagland Hall with student ID and payment by credit card, check or student account. We will make a photocopy of the student ID when payment is by billing the student account.
  11. Test prints (proofs) will be charged as a finished shirt.
