    Patti, i'm very new to this as well, but I've always used the 4.5" down from the shoulder & 4.5" from the center crease. X marks the spot for the center of the graphic.

    okay well, looking at the pocket t's i've here I can see why you say 4.5" over from the center but the top of a pocket is actually almost 9" down from the shoulder seam?

    Here's how I was told to do it.

    Place the center of the design about 7 1/2 inches below the point where the shoulder seam intersects with the collar. The center of the design should be about 4 inches to the right of the center line. A little lower and further from the center line for the bigger sizes.

    I can never remember where to place things so I have to have a print out for referral.

    Cool, thanks for all the replies everyone, 7.5-9" down from that shoulder seam looks good to me. I did find this gadget while surfing around the net, I am not going to order it, everyone says its saving them time but looks like an extra step or two to me...............www.teesquareit.com

    Once you figure out where you're gonna put the thing, tape a laser pointer to a non-moving object, and point it at the top center of the spot.

    Laser can be 10-15' away if you want.

    The problem with using a hard measurement from the top of the shoulder is it looks different depending on the size of the shirt. Putting it say 10" below the seam on a large shirt may put it lower on a small shirt relative to the left chest. Depending on the shirt sometimes I use the seam where the sleeve meets the shirt in the armpit.

    I always set mine halfway between the shoulder and armpit, then 1/4 of the way between the edge of the collar and the center seam. not an exact science, but haven't had any complaints yet.

    Ever notice how much time and planning, then rearranging we do in designing, just to make something look random?
