Paper submissions: Bold, clear line drawings with solid color fills translate the best to t-shirt printing. If your image should be printed with a transparent background, indicate this on your attached submission form. See example below, with artwork on a blue shirt. If you choose a white t-shirt and your design is drawn on white paper, you will still need to indicate whether transparency should be applied. Otherwise, a faint outline may be visible.
You may also submit a scanned image with a minimum 300 DPI.
Digital file submissions: Please submit as .png file with a minimum 300 DPI. Transparency should be enabled. Bold, clear line drawings with solid color fills translate the best to t-shirt printing.
Blah Blah Blah:
- High-contrast and high-resolution images provide the best results.
- Very fine lines and small type do not print well.
- The t-shirt color will affect the overall appearance.
- Artwork will be scaled to best fit the t-shirt. Submissions will be centered on the front.
- The earlier your entry is, the more time you will have to fix it if it isn’t suitable for printing.
- If you’d like suggestions or help with your artwork, send a digital file to stuffatBTC@gmail.com. Please clearly indicate that you are sending a DRAFT.
- Your t-shirt must be picked up at the Buddhist Temple of Chicago.
- Artwork may be submitted digitally, but entry fee (if applicable) must arrive at the Temple on or before August 1, 2019.
- Please include the completed BTC 75th Anniversary T-shirt Competition Entry Form with your artwork.
- The Buddhist Temple of Chicago reserves the right to only accept submissions that are in keeping with the Temple’s mission and beliefs.
