When printing custom apparel, there are many different options on design placement. Below is an infographic put together with a few tried and tested standard print locations to help with where best your print and/or logo should go and appropriate standard sizing's accordingly.


Left / Right Chest

Sizing: Typically sized between 2" and 4" wide or about 3" tall.


Center Front

A moderately sized print - centered on the garment between the left and right chest.

Sizing: The size can be the same as left chest or a little larger, but smaller than full front sizing

  • When printing on Youth sizes, a good design size is about 9” x 9”.

Full Back

Often paired with a front left chest.


  • Full Back: Placed over the shoulder blades near the top
