Troubleshooting

I uploaded an image and an error popped up that said my image was unacceptable.
The image you are trying to use is not the right size or resolution for printing. Here is an overview of what we need:

Maximum Width: 2800 pixels
Maximum Height: 3200 pixels
Maximum Image Size: 20 MB
Minimum DPI (resolution): 150, however we recommend using 300 DPI for best results.
File Types Accepted: PNG, JPG or SVG

How can I edit my image without expensive software?
We recommend:
GIMP, Image Manipulation Software.

I can’t select / edit an element.
Click Button D to open the manage layers menu. Click on the layer containing the element you want to edit. If the edit options box does not open immediately then try clicking the element to select it.

The clip art I chose has multiple color boxes. Why?
We use vector graphics for most of our clip art and some have the option of being printed in multiple colors.

I’ve selected clip art but cannot change the color!
Some of our clip art isn’t vectorized yet and can only be printed in the color of the original graphic. We are working on removing these items from the gallery.

What do the buttons on the edit options menu for images mean?
Change Fill Color
Transform (Resize & Rotate)
Position (Vertical & Horizontal Alignment or Flip Image)
Move Layer Up
Move Layer Down
Reset

What do the buttons on the edit options menu for text mean?
Once the text is selected the menu will offer these options:
Change Fill Color

Do I need permission to use another person’s artwork in the designer?
OMG YES! From me AND the original artist. Better yet, go to them and ask them if they sell shirts with their art on it. If they say yes, buy it from them. If they say yes but don’t sell it in your size, offer to pay them for a one time license to have the shirt printed by Valkyrie Apparel.
