Creative Project: Make a T-Shirt

Bodega Bijou

Let us help you create a bespoke T-Shirt featuring one of your illustrations!



We will help you manufacture ONE vegan, unisex T-Shirt sample, featuring an original illustration you have supplied. You can choose to create either a white or black T-Shirt sample.

  • 100% organic ringspun combed cotton
  • single jersey
  • available in white or black fabric
  • set-in sleeve
  • 1x1 rib at neck collar
  • inside back neck tape in self fabric, 180 gsm.


First of all, please download our Photoshop PSD Template HERE. This will help you create a design that is print ready - simply follow the instructions within the template, and save your file as a PNG with a transparent background. Your final image file MUST be at least 300dpi resolution - if the resolution is any lower than this, we simply cannot print it. Please make sure you use our template to ensure your artwork meets the correct image requirements. 

You can draw your illustration using either digital drawing software or working traditionally on paper. Images printed on fabric can sometimes appear faded in comparison to a Fine Art Print, and are lower contrast, so take this into account when you design: try and make your illustration as bold and striking as possible for the best results.

If you work traditionally on paper, and then scan it, then you need to scale your work to a reasonable size - your image should be about A4 size, at least. Scan your work at a minimum of 600dpi, cut out your image if you want it to have a custom shape, and save it with a transparent background as a PNG.

When your image is saved as a PNG, return here and upload your illustration (look for “Upload your Image here” on this page, attach your image, and wait for it to upload). Then add this product to the cart, and check out. We will immediately start processing your order, so please double check that you have uploaded the correct file before ordering as we cannot make amendments to uploaded files. You will not be able to check out unless you have first uploaded a PNG.

If you hate technology and this all sounds a bit overwhelming and complicated, don’t worry - alternatively, we can scan your work for you, cut out your image and save it as a PNG so you don’t have to: simply select the SCANNER symbol above the Add to Cart button before you check out. Using this service means you can focus on the design, and when it is complete you can bring it to the gallery, during our normal opening hours, ready to scan. Once you have delivered your artwork to us we will do all the nerdy techie stuff for you while-u-wait and get your sample into production the same day.



After receiving your order and checking that your image files have been created correctly, we will start production on your sample. Production can take between 5-7 working days. When production is complete we will mail you your sample with Royal Mail First Class delivery. Please allow an additional 3 days for delivery.
