How To Prepare Your Shirts
Please be sure to read and follow our instructions to properly make your quilt. Not doing so could result in additional fees if extra time or materials are needed.
Step 1: Gather the Shirts
It is important to select and send the correct number of shirts for the product you have ordered. Remember that each shirt can count as 2 panels if you want to use both front and back!
If we receive extra shirts, we cannot guarantee their return. Any paperwork you send in with your t-shirts will not be returned to you.
All quantities below represent front or back panels of shirts.

We recommend measuring your t-shirts prior to sending them to make sure the graphics will fit inside the panels.
Step 2: Cut your T-Shirts
Only send the side of the shirt you want used in your project. Simply cut your shirts along the seams to help our team use the desired side and help you save on shipping costs.
Don’t want to cut your shirts? We can do that for you! Just select the “cut my shirts for me” option that pops up when you go to check out.
Watch the video below for step-by-step instructions!
Please do not pre-cut your panels. Materials sent in should be at least 2 inches more than your desired panel size. For example, 12" × 12" panels require at least 14" × 14" of material.
Step 3: Fill out the Order Checklist
To ensure we can fulfill your order without any hiccups, please review and fill out the order checklist and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have a preferred layout for your quilt, include a photo of your shirt layout with your checklist.Download Checklist
Step 4: Send us your Shirts
Send your shirts in a box that has enough room. Don’t forget to include your order number on the shipping label on the outside of the box.
If you’re submitting two or more quilts in the same box, please email us images of your layout for each individual project or separate projects in marked bags. Otherwise, ship shirts for different projects separately.
