Suggestions:
Colors: Please keep in mind that screen printing is not standard printing. T-shirts that are over colored might not come out the way you intended on a shirt. Though, this is a full color t-shirt, it does not mean to use every color in the rainbow, or to over shade objects. In the t-shirt world, try to keep the color simple.
Be creative, we want to see what you can do!

Theme:
The theme for this year’s AnimeNEXT is racing, this can be racing in any form whether it involves cars, bikes or a vehicle that only exists within your own imagination.
