I love it!

It's too bad this was entered so late, but I'm interested to see how many votes it gets in 24 hours. ;)

Thanks for your vote and for the compliment as well. :-)



I really like what you did here. Design and placement feel just right. Good work!

Yes, I think you're right. I am saddened by this fact. My bank account, however, cheers (this would have been the third shirt in a month).

tjflashman77 wrote:This shirt is called "I am Taller Than Most Things", two of those things in particular being the print screens that woot uses to make these shirts. The two sizes woot uses are 12"x15" and 16"x20". The 12x15 is used for the Women's Small to Men's Small, and the 16x20 is used for the Men's Medium to Men's 3X. From what I understand from woot shirt designers in the know is that the shirt template is supposed to be representative of a Men's Medium and the print on it can be shown covering, at most, 16x20 square inches, the maximum screen print size. When I put together the photoshopped comp-image I was concerned only with showing the size, and not the placement. The shirt composition image is submitted so that the designer can indicate the placement and size the way they envision it. I made a visual confirmation to support the idea that the print was shown too large. As far as actual placement on the shirt and how to visualize it... who knows? That would ultimately be up to woot were this shirt to be printed, and they would have to choose whether to place it lower, higher, or more vertically centered. I do think that more shirts have been rejected for less concerning the placement of the design within the given template, but woot has never shown itself to be very consistent in terms of rejections. (It's an all together touchy subject, ask around... on second thought, maybe it's best not to.)



I find it curious how seriously you think this particular piece is violating one of the most subjective rules when your piece violated one of the least subjective rules.

Out of print area is pretty consistently rejected, IMO. A seemingly exaggerated size on a shirt is almost never (if ever) rejected. This is due to the fact that the artist is typically guessing how it will show on a given size shirt, and noone is completely clear how much of the shirt it should cover.

The "Out of Print Boundaries" rejections come from when a shirt is obviously designed to wrap around collar, is shown blatantly over a seam, or covers the entire shirt. In fact, there are times that even these violations haven't been rejected, when woot deems that the overall effect of the shirt will not be changed by the misrepresentation. For example, while this shirt was rejected for a comp violation, it was not even mentioned that it shouldn't be over the seam. This shirt, as well, stretched almost from top to bottom, wrapped around the collar, but was judged to not be rejectable. This was because the decision makers did not feel it would greatly hurt the overall impression of the printed shirt.

So, I respectfully disagree with your assertion that "more shirts have been rejected for less concerning the placement of the design within the given template" or that woot has been particularly inconsistent in this area.

Nice work. I wish the squares could be smaller to allow for a smaller image with the same amount of detail, but it looks great!

All I did for mine was get a picture of someone in a blank tee and made a clipping path around the shirt in photoshop. nothing special really.



hey thanks a lot for your help!

Keep in mind that the file is 604x643 and thus should be resized to 600x600 - otherwise your uploaded image will have artifacts and such.

Wahh, this one is submitted so late, but I like it a lot. =( I agree that this would be much better if it was smaller on the shirt, but alas the low pixel resolution ruins that a bit.

Bueno job anyways. =)

It looks pretty good to me. The heart is really very close to centered in the chest:
