How do I prep/cut my shirts?

You've placed your order but you are unsure of your next steps. Be sure to follow the instructions below!

Please be sure to read and follow our instructions and understand what we need to properly make your quilt. Not doing so could result in additional fees if extra time or materials are needed. We will never send you an invoice without contacting you first; however, please try to select the correct panel size and follow proper preparing instructions to avoid these complications.

Step 1: Gather the Correct Number of Shirts

Please be sure to select and send the correct number of shirts for the product you have ordered. Remember: Each shirt can count as 2 panels if you want to use both front and back!

If we receive extra shirts, we will try to send them back with your quilt, but we cannot guarantee their return. Any paperwork you send in with your T-shirts (order confirmation, image of layout, etc.) will not be returned to you.

Step 2: Cut your T-Shirts

Simply cut your shirts in half by cutting up the side seams - only send the side of the shirt you want included. This also saves you on shipping costs. Watch the video below for step-by-step instructions! 


Don't want to cut your shirts? We can do that for you! Just select the "cut my shirts for me" option that pops up when you go to check out - now only $24.99. Feel free to give us a call or send over an email if you miss this option when ordering. Please note: if you do not cut your shirts, we need to know which side(s) you want included. Please indicate this in your layout photo or mark sides with masking tape, etc. Contact us with questions!

Step 3: Send us your Shirts

Send your shirts with a copy of your printed confirmation email. If you don't have a printer, write your order number (found at the top of your confirmation email) on a sheet of paper and place it in the box.

If you have a desired layout, snap a photo of it, and send it in with your shirts as well. No printer? Email the photo to - just be sure to include your order number. Contents of your shipment can shift in transit, so you MUST include a photo if you desire a specific layout.

Ship to:


800 Pioneers Blvd

Lincoln, NE 68502

Please note: If you're submitting two or more quilts in the same box, please include images of your layout for EACH individual quilt (or pillow), so we know which t-shirts belong to each product.

Please do not send your shirts in with pins, needles, bags, or rubber bands. If you'd like to notate specific instructions, please email us or give us a call.
