What is a layout exactly?

A layout is a structured arrangement of text and/or clip art that are pieced together to create a graphic design that is perfect for t-shirts, hoodies, caps, bags, and other apparel items.

Layouts can range from a simple arrangement to a very complex arrangement. The basic components of a layout are text and clip art.

Text includes the words placed in a layout. They can be arranged in a variety of shapes and orientations as well as be many different fonts or typestyles.

Some of the different text shapes could be a “blimp” shape, arched, slanted, circular, as well as many more different shape options shown below.

In addition to changing the shape of text to make it look unique within a layout, text can also be altered by changing the typestyle. Transfer Express currently offers over 200 different fonts that can drastically change the look and personality of a design layout.

Clip art are graphic images that are designed to illustrate different categories such as people, animals, objects, etc.

Clip art can also be shapes, swirls, splatters and a variety of different artistic images. Currently there are over 10,000 clip art options to choose from. The number is constantly increasing as our artists create new layouts and clip art every week.

Easy Prints® layouts are very versatile. With other 5,000 layouts and 10,000 clip art, finding a design to fit your needs is easy.

Just remember that layouts can be customized as little as changing the words and clip art, or as much as you want by changing the typestyles, colors, size of text and clip art and many more options.

You may start with one design layout and by the time you’re done customizing, it looks like a completely different design.

Can I download and use the artwork for other, “in house”, decoration methods? (CAD Color, embroidery, chenille, etc)
