Your burning t-shirt design FAQs, answered.

Everything you need to move to production. Your t-shirt design will be uploaded in the correct formats to send to a printer. Typically this means a production-ready Adobe Illustrator file, Adobe Photoshop file, PDF file or EPS file.

Plus, you’ll get the full legal copyright, so the design will be all yours.
Lots of ideas! If you’re looking for inspiration, explore 99designs for fantastic examples of t-shirts created by our design community. 

Bring as many specifics as you can, too. Include t-shirt sizes, style, number of colors, printable dimensions, printing requirements and any other specifications that would affect your design.

The more you give the designers, the better they can design a t-shirt for you!
Yes. If you have any specific images (like a logo) that need to be included on your t-shirt design, please submit them to designers with your brief.

Unless you request otherwise, your designer may also use stock images (purchased from a third party) in your design. If a designer uses stock art in a design, they’ll tell you which images they are and use watermarked versions of them in their entries. Once you choose the winning design, you’ll need to purchase the stock art and provide it to the winning designer so they can complete the design.
Your custom t-shirt design contest includes one winning shirt. If you need a second t-shirt design, you have a few options. You can award multiple winners to your contest. You can run a second contest. Or you can start a 1-to-1 Project with your winning designer to create additional assets.
Absolutely (and we love it when that happens)! When your t-shirt design contest has finished, you can start a 1-to-1 project with your winning designer.
On 99designs, designers agree to upload only original artwork, so each designer owns the rights to their design submissions until you choose your contest’s winner. During the design handover stage, the designer agrees to transfer the rights, and you become the owner of the copyright of your winning t-shirt design.
We guarantee that you’ll get a great t-shirt design at any pricing level, but our higher-priced packages give you more design options and better support.

Here’s how it works: When you pay more, the prize for the winning designer is bigger, too. More experienced designers participate in your contest, so you get more high-quality designs to choose from. More options means additional time that's needed to review your designs. That’s why our Gold and Platinum packages offer dedicated managers to help streamline that process by writing creative briefs and giving your designers feedback.

When selecting your custom t-shirt contest package, think about how much time you’ll have and what experience you have writing briefs and working with designers. If you're still unsure, contact us for a design consultation.
Choose “Make your contest private” from the Contest options section before you launch your t-shirt design contest. This will prohibit designers from using their designs elsewhere, and your contest will be un-searchable on the web.

This will automatically attach a standard NDA template to your contest. If you prefer, you can also upload your own NDA.
We offer a 100% money-back guarantee within 60 days of payment on all T-shirt Design Contests, except those with a guaranteed prize and those that have entered the Final Round. You can also call us anytime to help you rewrite your brief, reopen your project to ensure you get a good result and help you pick a winning design. Remember, if we refund your contest, you aren’t legally entitled to use any of the designs submitted to your contest.
