    How the Design Process Works

    How the Design Process Works

     

    No matter what you’re designing a shirt for, it all begins with one thing = finding inspo! Whether it’s from Pinterest, something another chapter wore, or from some random TikTok video, we can help bring that inspo to life. We’ll take your screenshots and make a design 100% unique for your chapter. You’ll get most proofs back within 1-2 business days, depending on how complex the art is.


    If you don’t know what you’re wanting, browse the Emerson Coast website! We have thousands of designs to look through - all which can be customized. If you find something you like, it’s time to head on over to thedesign now quiz!


    This super quick quiz will take down your basic info so a sales rep can text you about bringing your design idea to life. She’ll be there to answer any questions, give design ideas if you want, and get your free proof started!


    Yes, that’s right, I said FREE PROOF!

     

    We’ll never make you pay for anything until you’re 100% in love with the design and ready to order shirts. Until then, you’re free to make any edits to the proof until you absolutely love it.

     

    Once you’re obsessed with it, we get to work on getting them screen printed! Our average turnaround time is 2 weeks, but can speed it up a bit if you’re in a time crunch. We know how important shirts are for your sorority event, and are committed to getting them to you on time!


    When it comes to actually ordering the shirts, you can do one of two things - a traditional bulk order or an online order. With bulk ordering, you give us all the sizes and pay one invoice for everything. This is an easy option for required shirts like Recruitment or other chapter-wide events.


    If shirts are optional or you don’t want to mess with all those sizes, we’ll make a link for an online order! You can send the link in the GroupMes, letting your chapter members pay for their own shirt and choose a size. This is great for merch over the Summer, like Work Week merch or general PR.


    Once the shirts are done, we’ll ship them right to you! Bulk shipping is free, but we can individually ship for an extra charge. When you get the shirts, rip them open and make sure everything is perfect! If there’s anything wrong, let us know within 24 hours and we’ll make it right!

    HENLEY

     

    If you’re looking for something other than a basic tee, the henley is your next best option! This is still a super classic style, but with a little twist. The three button neckline makes it super easy to accessorize with necklaces, dressing up any sorority tshirt.

    SIMPLE

     

    Hey, I never said we didn’t like simple designs! Sometimes, you want a design that’ll last through the years. Usually just text, simple shirts are great basics that every sorority girl should have. These designs are great for staying in your budget, usually only requiring 1 ink color. That leaves you more room in your budget for a nicer shirt style, like a colorblock ringer! If you go basic with the design, your shirt can be as bright and bold as you want!

     

    These simple designs are great for Recruitment, letting your chapter speak for itself. You can mix it up with different colors or a bold font to make this simple design stand out from the rest!
