For shirt designs, as mentioned in the video, we're looking for bold, graphic, or iconic designs without hard rectangle edges. Keep in mind that these are reproduced with a set number of colors (2-4) so full-color photographs aren't ideal.
For each shirt design we want two things:
1) A mock-up of the design on a shirt (to show placement, size, and shirt color)
2) High-quality design on its own (ideally as vector art)
I've made a zipped Photoshop template at this size with a safety box and front & back previews of shirt colors. Note: you can make new shirt colors by duplicating the white shirt and adding a color overlay layer style that uses the "linear burn" blending mode.
(Also note: the previews will look better & more realistic if you set your artwork to "linear burn" or another similar blending mode. This makes it look like it's actually printed on the shirt instead of laid over it.)
