Updated: Apr 24, 2020


Company convention is coming in two weeks time, but the final design of the T-shirt has just been approved by the management. As an event coordinator, you are wondering if it is possible for you to get things done in this short time. Panic and worried. We know exactly how it feels.

The truth is it is just as difficult to get things done perfectly when you only have limited time left.


There is good news:

You will be able to speed up your T-shirt printing order by following the 3 tips below!

1. Get the design file ready (AI/PS) - or at least a high-resolution version

2. Provide confirmed size and quantity

3. Settle the deposit (sounds frank, but it’s true)


1. Get the design file ready (AI/PS) - or at least a high-resolution version

Everyone wants a beautiful design.

The quality of details is the foundation of the finest design.

To make sure to have a perfect printed T-shirt on time, it is highly recommended that you already have the design file ready on hand.

The formats of the design file can be either in Adobe Illustrator (AI) or Photoshop (PS). If you have none of them, it will still be great to at least prepare a high-resolution version.

Following this step will reduce the ordering process time span by 20%-30%.


Imagine if it is a raw JPEG file that needs redrawing? It will take up to hours or days for the team to refine the design again in AI/PS.

Imagine if it is an AI/PS format? No need to worry about the speed anymore.

So, looking to speed up the shirt printing order? You know what to do :)

2. Provide confirmed size and quantity

We understand that it is challenging to confirm size and quantity in a short span of time.

However, it is a key factor to get things done as fast as possible.

Getting the size and quantity ready will allow us to prepare the needed materials to process your shirt printing order. This is especially important if you’re opting for custom made clothing.


Processing custom made clothing means that our team needs to tailor it accordingly to the requirement rather than taking the ready-made stock. The extra time taken here will cause a longer process.

Having the confirmed size and quantity will allow the team to prepare the needed material the earliest possible.

That’s the reason why the sooner of getting confirmed size and quantity, the better.

Standard processing time:

Ready-made clothing: around 7 workdays*

Custom made clothing: around 14 workdays*

*T&C applied: depends on the quantity and the design.


3. Settle the payment (deposit)

Have you ever completed work for a client and struggled to get paid? It’s a common problem for many service-based businesses.

We do believe that every client is sincere and kind-hearted, but a deposit is definitely a clear indication that we mutually agreed to devote to this project.

Hence, in order to speed up the shirt printing order, a deposit is the final step to make things happen immediately.


Following these 3 tips will definitely make rushing work much manageable.
