Pictures Of Puma ShoesGuest Blog Post!!Hello Everyone! I am Jill. I am a sales representative and have worked at Broken Arrow for over 5 years. I am also the design online t-shirt expert. I work with our IT team and the customers to give our users the best experience designing their very own custom garments! I thought it might be fun to write a blog about some of our most commonly asked questions/answers. Hopefully this can help in your endeavors to design your very own custom screen printed garment.FILE SIZE/TYPE:The best upload image is a PNG file with a transparent background and about 300×300 pixels per inch at actual size. The benefit of a PNG file is that you are able to design your own shirt while having the background change to be whichever shirt color you select. If you use a JPEG with a white background but you want it on a black t-shirt, that white background will show up (see image below). The PNG file makes the design look nicer and gives you a better picture of what it will actually look like. Second upload file best to use is a JPG file that is 300×300 pixes per inch also. This is an easily resized/maneuverable file for the online t-shirt design tool. Although these are the best files to use on the online design tool, we do like to have other file types for “production”. When you get done being your own artist, the design tool will ask you if you have any other files you want to send. At that time, send any files you have and we will pick the best one for your particular project. If you need custom artwork, contact one of our sales reps and we can help get that taken care of for you! Remember, standard artwork is free with any order over 12 pieces, so don’t hesitate to ask us to be the artist for you if being creative isn’t your thing.GARMENT SELECTION – CHOOSING THE RIGHT FABRICSDepending on the quantity that you are ordering, we do have to use specific garments for specific methods of printing. For example, single piece digital printing requires that the garment be 100% cotton. As much as we would love to be able to print on blends. the equipment just doesn’t allow for us to! Do learn more about DTG digital printing, check out this really informative YouTube Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uj1INmWR_Jg. If we were to try to do digital printing on a non-cotton garment, the result would be something our industry calls sublimation. Have you ever seen a white number on the back of the maroon shirt that looks pink? That is because of sublimation. Simply put, the dye of the fibers interacts with the dyes of the ink and Voila!- you get a color you didn’t meant to get. So, if you need less then 6 pieces, look for a garment that is at minimum 80% cotton.If you are going to be ordering 6 pieces or more, then select whichever garment is your favorite! We don’t have the same limitations with custom digital printing as we do with custom screen-printing on garments. Did you know that we have over 10,000 different garments available for your custom t-shirt printing and embroidery needs? If you don’t see what you want online, contact one of our knowledgeable sales reps and we can help you find something that fits your needs. We have burnouts, fashion oriented garments, jackets, and much more!Also, if you are interested in embroidery, contact us and we can help you through that too!ADDING MORE THAN ONE GARMENT TYPE WITH THE SAME DESIGNAnother question we get asked frequently is How do I add additional garments to the same design? With our system, you are not able to do this, but it is for good reason! Different garments have different limitations, so you cant always easily do that. The best example is youth garments vs. adult garments. The standard design size on a adult garment is 12.5 inches wide where as a youth garment is 9” wide. We do this to protect you from being able to order something that cant actually go together. There are certainly instances in which combining garments makes a lot of sense and can actually save you money such as adding 12 long sleeves to your order of 12 short sleeves. If you are interesting in adding garments to other garments on the same order, contact us and we will make sure you get the cheapest scree printed shirts possible (cheapest price of course, not cheapest quality :)).For the sake of your time, I am going to end this particular post and write a new blog post soon in regards to some other issues that you might face on the online design tool! Please remember that our sales reps are here to assist you and really love talking to our customers so give us a call if you need any help!Thanks for reading, I hope to talk to you all again soon!Jill

How to Dress Up a T-Shirt: Street Style for 2019!
Broken Arrow T-Shirt Fit Guide Part 1Are you choosing the right size T-shirt? To look your best in a Broken Arrow Custom decorated T-shirt, the fit should not be too baggy or too tight. If your T-shirt is too baggy, the extra fabric can make you look boxy and bigger than you actually are. If your T-shirt is too tight, you may draw attention to those parts of your figure that are not your favorites. Whether you a sporting a six-pack or a twelve back, your T-shirt should flow with your shape but not show every lump and bump.How long should your T-shirt be?The bottom hem of your T-shirt should not be any higher than your hips. If your T-shirt is too short, you risk showing your belly when you reach up high or showing your behind when you bend over. A good rule of thumb is to make sure the T-shirt extends at least to the top of the pocket on your favorite jeans.Where should your T-Shirt’s shoulder seams fall?Shoulder seams are the seams where the body of the T-shirt attaches to the sleeve. Ideally, these vertical seams should align with where your shoulders end rather than lower or your arms or closer to your neck.How long should our T-shirt’s sleeves be?Short-sleeve T-shirt sleeves should end half way between your shoulder and elbow give or take an inch or two.Author: Amber Barz

Have you ordered this awesome new shirt for your club or team yet? Pom pom jerseys, aka Game Day jerseys are the hottest trend this spring! Pom pom jerseys pair great with a pair of leggings or jeans, and have a comfortable, relaxed look.You may know pom pom jerseys best by the big print on the upper back. At Broken Arrow, we call this a Billboard print, which gives you that big upper back print that is larger than what would fit on a standard t-shirt. In fact, our billboard print option only fits on pom pom jerseys. The billboard screen print can be about 22″ wide by about 5″ tall or so on the upper back of the shirts. Specialty inks are popular options as well. Puff ink works great on pom pom jerseys, and gives the design a raised up look and feel. Metallic specialty inks like ultra gold shimmer or silver glitter also work well to give your design some extra wow factor! You can of course add a print to the front as well if you would like. A common option is a left chest print along with the billboard print on the back, but you can mix it up however you would like! The minimum order requirement for pom pom jerseys is just 6 per design. And, the best part about custom silk screen t-shirts is you can mix different shirt colors in the order as long as the design remains the same, so you can order pom pom jerseys in a variety of colors for your group or club!

You’ve created the perfect custom T-shirt or hoody! Now howdo you keep it looking great for years to come? It’s a question that ourcustomers ask on a regular basis. The answer is as easy as 1,2,3.1. If the item has a zipper, zip it up. Then turn your custom screen-printed apparel inside out before you wash it. (Actually, all of your clothes will benefit from washing them inside-out as it helps reduce fading and fabric pilling). 2. Wash like colors and textures together in COLD water.Cold water gets your custom printed clothes clean and is gentler on fabric.Don’t use bleach or other strong detergent products. Avoid putting a super softcustom T-shirt in the machine with a stiff pair of blue jeans as this can causeextra friction that may eventually cause the softer fabric to pill (pilling isthe annoying bumps that appear when softer fabrics rub and twist together regularly).And dark jeans can fade onto a white or light-color t-shirt. 3. Hang your garments to dry or use the low heat setting onthe dryer. To reduce wrinkles, remove items from the dryer before the items arecompletely dry and hang them up or lay them out to finish drying. (High heat isprobably the worst enemy of most clothing, especially custom printed apparel,as high heat can cause fabric to shrink and cause a design to wrinkle, crack orstick.)Author: Amber Barz
