Design Mockups & Proofs


Designing a custom t-shirt can be frustrating and difficult at times, but there’s nothing more annoying that not knowing exactly what your design will look like on a shirt.

What is a Mockup or Proof?

A mockup, or proof, is a way for you to see exactly how your design will look when printed on a certain piece of apparel.

We provide digital mockups with certain order types so that you can see how the design will look on your t-shirts before you complete your order.

Our designers will take the design that you provided and lay it out on a digital image of a t-shirt, or other garment, and position it properly so that you can approve the layout of the design.

At One Hour Tees we offer a couple different options in terms of Mockups and Proofs for your custom t-shirts and apparel to ensure that everything looks as you imagined before the printing process is started.

Free Digital Mockups

For orders of 10 or more pieces, you can request a mockup to see placement of your design on the apparel. If you are ordering less than 10 pieces and have paid for a $15.00 design setup fee, a digital mockup will be included with that design at no extra charge.

Digital mockups will be sent for approval once you have placed and made payment on your order.

Digital Mockups – Under 10 Pieces

If you have ordered less than 10 pieces and want a digital mockup, one can be provided for a $10 fee.

If you provided your artwork, your artwork will be printed on the shirt at the dimensions listed on your invoice. If you are worried about the color of the prints, you can visit our Ink Color Charts page, or come into our store to check out our T-shirt color print chart.

Once you have approved the invoice there will be no refunds on design dimensions or placement.

Please keep in mind that all front center logos are printed approximately 3 inches down from the seam of the collar. All back shoulder logos are printed approximately 4 inches down from the collar. This is standard positioning. If you wish to have it done differently you must let us know so we can make note in your order.

Physical Proof Samples

At this time we do not offer physical proof samples of garments for approval. If you wish to see what some of our past clients have printed on t-shirts, you view our past artwork examples.
