Make your photoshop design 16" x 20" and make sure it is 300dpi. This is the maximum print size for the tshirts here, so you do not have to make your art fill the entire space of the document.

Yes, thanks for the correction.

I have a shirt catalog, y'all!

This is my first time designing tshirts for the derby, and just designing at all. I use pixlr, although I'm not sure it's good for designing. Are there any other online free resources that work well for tshirts? Or should I bite the bullet and download software?

I admit - this is my first time entering a derby. And I'm ashamed to say it, but I used pixlr (I mean, how can I afford good software. It's crazy expensive.) Is there a free online program, or will I have to bite the bullet and download software (preferably free)

There's a UK based company that produces Drawplus - vector - and Photoplus - raster.

I just got illustrator. I have no clue how to use this. Are there any good online tutorials? Any tips on using it?

I think adobe has some tutorials on their website that will walk you through at least the basics. Learn what all the tools do- especially the pen tool.
Illustrator and photoshop have been two of the most powerful and marketable skills I have ever learned in my life, so it is well worth the time.

If you want your own Dropbox, pretty handy for file storage online, and easily available for others to access the files, try this link:

Any chance you could re-upload those Corel Draw shirt templates? Every time I click on it I get a 404 error. :/
