PLACEMENT GUIDELINES

PLACEMENT GUIDELINES

The placement of a design on a garment is subject to many variables such as customer preference, the size and style of the garment, the size and style of the design and the degree of difficulty in working with the garment. We have assembled some guidelines for placing designs on the most popular garments. Please note that these measurements are approximate and refer to the center point of the entire design. If in doubt, mark one garment, then physically put the garment on a person to check location.
