You’ll believe ghosts exist after seeing our photorealistic templates in action. How do we do it? Well, that’s a trade secret, but we can tell you that the process is tedious, time consuming and therefore absolutely worth it to make sure our blank t-shirt templates are the best in the biz.
If you’re time poor but still need to inject some handmade typography into your design work, then having an assortment of well engineered fonts at your disposal is a must. We believe there is nothing better than creating a full graphic design by hand, but if you must use preset fonts, here is a list of 21 must have handmade fonts for your design toolkit which we think are the best in class. Let us know which font is your favourite in the comments section below.

Last summer our design department set a massive goal; To set the benchmark for the next generation of apparel and head wear templates.
If we may say so…we smashed the apparel templates out of the park! Not only did we offer the usual front, back and side templates, but we developed the first ever, 45 degree angled template profile!
The angled profile, (that is trending on high-end ecommerce stores like nike.com), allows you to easily insert your own artwork as a flat 2D layer. The template then seamlessly warps and moulds the artwork to the fabric on the correct viewing plane. After achieving success in the apparel department, we directed our attention to the headwear.
After having our new templates released for a short time, we began receiving really positive feedback from our PrePress Toolkit design community about our work. We appreciate the good and the bad, but feedback that lets us know what our clients like and are looking for, motivates us to produce even better, newer, fresher products than anyone else out there.
Quote: “I used to use (company name removed as PrePress isn’t into defacing). But I used to think they are top-notch until I found you guys. You guys are too awesome so I decided to buy the entire bundle”
Feedback like the example above, showed us that people were expecting big things from the PrePress Team and we wanted to deliver, so…
This men’s ghosted t-shirt template pack comes with front, back and side profiles as well as
the all new angled front and angled back profiles.
PrePress Toolkit is proud to be the first to offer a fully editable angled mockup
Through the use of Smart Objects layers, all you need to do is add your
artwork and the template will do the hard work of setting your artwork onto the t-shirt.
All files are compatible with Photoshop CS3 and newer versions including Photoshop CC.

In this tutorial we show you how to add a marle fabric swatch (or any fabric for that matter) to a t-shirt template file in 6 super fast steps. Adding a fabric swatch to your template opens the door to even more possibilites with what can be done with an apparel template file. For example, imagine an e-commerce store that sells t-shirts in many different colors (including grey marle). Now, imagine a guest coming to your website and being able to view all the different color options. To set this up would take hours of photographing every different colorway and touching up those photos. Forget the photography, use a template. Nike do it and so can you! Here’s how it’s done.
