Garment Imprint Locations

Location, location, location! This concept is just as important in the promotional products industry as it is in real estate. It's important to choose the correct location in order to best emphasize that beautiful logo of yours!

Fortunately, when you order a shirt or similar garment from Quality Logo Products, whether you need a lot of space or only a little, we have plenty of options for logo placement!

Still feeling uneasy about the company t-shirt order? Browse our list of placement options below!

Standard silk screen locations

A traditional silk screen imprint will fall roughly 3-4 fingers from the collar of the shirt. There are plenty of location possibilities depending on how big and bold you want your logo to be. 

A Full Front logo will get your brand noticed!

Mutliple locations can be done, but are a little more expensive.

A Full Back logo is also a great choice!

Embroidery Locations

Recommended zones for embroidery embellishments are bit smaller for a few reasons. Not only is embroidery a more detailed and complex process, but an embroidered shirt must allow room for collars and buttons. Fortunately, imprint placement options still offer high visibility. 

Again, multiple locations are possible, but more costly.

Back of Collar is a common embroidery placement choice.

A Left Chest imprint is a traditional choice.

Measurments for all types

Some imprint specifications will apply whether you're rocking a crisp new tee or sporting a snazzy polo. Check out our detailed breakdown below:

Left or Right Chest

Unisex Adult

  • Around 2.5-4" wide (depending on preference)
  • Top of logo 2.5" down from collar
  • 3" in from sleeve seams

Youth

  • Around 1.5-3" wide
  • Top of logo 1.5" down from collar

Women

  • Around 1.5-3" wide
  • Top of logo 1.5" down from collar

HOLD IT! IMPORTANT NOTE!

Due to the nature of silk screening, exact logo placement from garment to garment cannot be guaranteed. Each shirt is placed on the press manually and the accuracy of the imprint location is often determined by line of sight. Shifts in imprint placement are especially common on tote bags or other items that are relatively "loose" fitting because there is no center point to reference making it difficult to place the item on press consistently. An industry standard 1 1/2" variance in all directions is considered acceptable and any claims within this range will be denied.

With so many great ways to customize the look of your garment, it's hard to go wrong! If you have any further questions about imprint placement on a shirt, don't be shy! Ask your friendly sales representative for their thoughts. Check out our handy list of artwork setup tips to make sure your logo really pops!
