Design guidelines

To ensure that all submissions can be easily printed using a sublimation process and remain consistent with our brand, please adhere to the following guidelines:

General guidelines
  1. The polo shirt is a standard short sleeve shirt however the it may end up with long sleeves.

  2. Design Format: Submit your design in an electronic format. Download an entry form here.

  3. Color Guidelines: Stick to the CMYK color model, as sublimation printing does not support RGB.

  4. Design Area: Keep in mind that the shirt will be produced using the sublimation printing method. All areas of the shirt can be used but take into account that the design may be distorted around a body.

  5. Sublimation printing is a digital printing technique that utilizes heat-sensitive inks to transfer a design onto a suitable material. In this process, the ink is transformed from a solid state to a gaseous state, bypassing the liquid phase, to bond directly with the fabric. This results in a design that is not only vibrant and detailed but also long-lasting, as the ink becomes a part of the material itself. Sublimation printing is ideal for complex and multi-colored designs, and it allows for all-over printing.
