    What notable things do other users say about this tool? (either good or bad!) REVIEWER 01: “Decent printing, but printing Area limitations are a big downside.” 9/15/17 Pete. D I recently ordered two T-shirts with my company logo on them. One of the T-shirts printed on a ladies tank top came out wonderful. However a men's large V-neck T-shirt with the same design logo was printed very small along the chest printing area. Either the pictures are misleading on how big a logo can be (in pictures and the web designer), or Teespring printing people just messed up and didn't expand my logo enough. On the web designer tool online I made sure to put my logo to the limits of the printing area and I still have a logo with around 6 inches of blank space on both sides. So I'm not too thrilled about my T-shirt but the other one like I said was perfect. REVIEWER 02: “Outstanding Customer Service!” 9/15/17 Lynnete M. I ordered a couple shirts and after almost 2 months of not receiving it, I contacted customer service and Lilibeth and the team responded immediately. They did research on their end and was able to provide me an update on delivery of my order. Although I didn't receive it when we set a deadline, they were quick to give me a full refund. After receiving the refund, I finally got my order in the mail and informed Lilibeth to process payment again. Instead, they said it wasn't necessary due to the inconvenience. They truly valued me as a customer! I will order from them again. I did offer advice on shipping to Guam for future orders so it can be received in a more timely manner.

    What would/could a designer use this tool for?

    For personal branding, family pictures, etc. There is not a lot of freedom, since the medium is solid, and the only thing you can add is imagery/color/text.

    Depending on what kind of free this tool is, how “free” is this tool really?

    There is no advertising, the only thing you need to do in order to use this website is register (and pay if you buy something.) So in that sense it's not "free", but you can use the website freely.

    Great tool for family or birthday presents.
