Glad you were able to edit the design! Really neat concept. Good luck!

Re: pi


I'm sorry to say but I don't think those lines are printable. Each number is 9 lines tall. So if you're at the .0625" minimum line size, then each number is 0.5625" tall (possibly a smidge larger since if was really ~ 9.25 lines, but I'm giving the benefit of the doubt). Doing a simple copy and paste I found that your design is approximately 60 numbers tall.

The math would therefore dictate that your design is 60*.5625"=33.75" tall, which is beyond the maximum print size. So the only possibilities are that the lines are indeed 0.0625" which would make the design outside the printable area, or the design is indeed 20" tall, which would make the lines ~ 0.037" and thus too small.

It's possible I'm wrong, but these lines really do look like they're just too small.

or they can just check the native file and see that the lines, as per the selection, are wider than 4.5pts.

Re: pi


Did you actually have to change your design? If not and they wrongly decided that your lines were too small, that sucks! They should un-reject it.

Don't go swimming.
My mind is a strange place.

Re: pi


I'm not trying to be mean but no way this is gonna print as shown and should be rejected for that fact alone since you are not properly showing the image at approximate size on the sample shirt. The blow up of the numbers you have show the size the lines are supposed to be, yet the numbers you show equate to less then a 6th of what the total image width would have to be with all the numbers on the top of the symbol. How big is the art when lines are at 4.5pt, because it looks like it's going to be over 20 inches wide at least which is FAR larger then the sample shirt your showing and potentially well outside Woot's printable area.
