Create your Winning Design

Although you will be submitting your art at a lower resolution - 72 dpi (dots per inch) for web - you will want to create your art at 300 dpi. If you win, we will request the high resolution version. Be creative, have fun, and if possible, avoid the low hanging fruit. It isn’t as tasty.

It's also important to avoid using copyrighted images, tastelessly offensive concepts, or graphics that cannot be printed on a t-shirt. You may want to wear a photorealistic image of a stormtrooper using the restroom, but that doesn't mean we can (or will) print it.

From time to time, we will host themed contests for specific licensed partners, including World of Warcraft, Aion, StarCraft, EVE Online, Diablo, Minecraft, or Portal2. You can submit designs or these games at any time, but these contests will typically offer special prizes beyond the standard T-Shirt Design Challenge. Submissions to these special themed contests are encouraged to use characters and imagery from the game, but all artwork must be created by you, the artist.


Submit and Be Merry

Submission requires two images: a small GIF thumbnail (150 x 150 pixels), and the main display image, which should be exactly 900 pixels wide and 533 pixels tall. The main image may be in JPG, GIF, and PNG format. Once you have created and sized your images, use the submission form to submit your design. The design will be screened to make sure it fits our website and meets the J!NX standards of quality. If it passes, it will enter the Design Arcade for voting by the J!NX Community.
