Tshirtgang has received a lot of positive feedback about how easy our site is to use and we love hearing it! So continue to submit your feedback using the feedback button at the top of the website!

We still continue to improve our service for our members and today we're announcing and releasing a brand new feature.

Have you ever uploaded a great image and realize you forgot to remove the background? To help save you time from going back to your image editing program, Tshirtgang has added a great new feature that can do that for you. Beginning today on our front page, you will see a new tool to help remove the background of your image. Since this is a new feature, let us take the time to show you how it works.



Once you upload your image, you will notice a new image, what we are calling 'Tshirt Tools' just below your image. Click on the background dropper and then select the color on your image you want to remove.

Here's an example.
Say we uploaded this picture of the earth. It's a great picture, but it doesn't work well on other color t-shirts (oh no!).



Now we select the tool and select the black background of our shirt. Poof! It's gone!

We click on the save icon and our shirt is ready to be saved! Continue as you normally would and you're ready to share to multiple marketplaces!



Let us know what you think of our new feature in the comment section below!

Hi, after I make the shirt and click on the image to view the design it opens a new page of the tshirtgang not the design I just made.

It appears your design wasn't saved correctly. Please delete this and try again.

Its works perfectly on the white tees, but when I try it on the colored tees my images have a white edge around them.

Hi Marian,

It depends on the image you are using. Images with a solid colour will work very well, while colours with a deep gradient, something like a sunrise or rainbow will require multiple clicks to remove multiple colours.

If you have an example image you could always attach it or send us a link through the contact form and we'll look into why it's not working for you.

I found Custom Ink to be much more user friendly when it comes to designing t-shirts. What are the odds of you incorporating their design lab? http://www.customink.com/lab

I gave it a shot, for 1 of my designs it worked great, but for others it seems the color range it removes is too broad. I found it best if you want to remove Black background on a black shirt, but like TeeHood said, if your designing your shirts in Photoshop, or GIMP anyway, might as well do it all there, that way you can veiw your ART at 100% and see what it REALLY looks like. It is really easy to add a alpha channel and remove backgrounds in most photo editing software.

Please DON'T become like custom ink. 'nuff said

also you guys there are a couple other things that would help us all gain customers. First of all we need to be able to place our logos on the shirts in addition to the primary design after that we should try to have an option of placing our own custom tags inside ive seen them just printed which looks great. And one last thing it would be nice if we could have a paper tag or flyer type attachment to the shirts. ive found other sites that offer that option but i foubd my home and i want to grow with u guys... please get back with me and let us know about these idea's

Thanks for the feedback, I'll mention it during our next design meeting.

We ARE working in new front page features. There are a number of new things in current development, but we don't have any announcements as of just yet.

We can't promise well add everything but were working on our most requested features. We hope to have an announcement sometime within the next two weeks of new features.

What happened to enabling us to design the back of the shirts? And also when are we going to be able to display the female fitted styles? I also need to know how to make the designs bigger. Ive ordered a couple different shirts to see what the final product looks like and the designs are coming back toooo small... Please get back with me on these matters. Thanks!

Adding a design on the back is currently in testing. However, we're awaiting some new machine arrivals at our production facility before launching the new feature. I apologize for the delay but we'll be reviewing this soon and update everyone when it's ready to launch.

If you're having issues with orders, please submit us a Support Ticket with images and and order numbers and we'll be able to investigate.
