We can print on several standard places on a t-shirt:

  • Breast or pocket print
  • Front print
  • Back print
  • Sleeves
  • Back neck (printed transfer label)


PSD Mock up

To help with your design process we have created a free t-shirt mock-up PSD based on a standard Gilden Premium (GD008). This mock-up allows you to place your design within several positions.

Care labels

Care labels are a must for all brands, they add credibility to your products and serve the important purpose of telling the product owner how best to wash and care for the garment. A care label should also state what the garment is made of and the country of origin.
