Left chest logo is a popular placement in custom apparel lately as things have moved away from a large centred placement. When people think of a left chest logo they usually think of a small 4″x4″ print placed directly on the left chest but there are a few placement and size options to make your apparel more unique.
Left chest designs are great for:
- Tank Tops
Whichever garment you are printing on you will need proper placement for it to sit right, if placed too low or high it will not sit right when the garment is worn. Here is some placements for proper alignment:
For placement, your vertical line will be just off the side of the collar and your horizontal line will start at the arm pit seam. Depending on the size and shape of your design here is some advice:
Regular Shaped Logos
For regular shaped logos about 4″ to 6″ square they should be lined up as mentioned to the right side of the collar and the bottom of the armpit.
Small & Horizontal Logos
Sometimes left chest can be a smaller logo, even embroidered. These look best using the right neck as a guideline but slightly higher than the bottom of the armpit so it does not sit too low when worn.
These can depend on how big the design is and can be more tricky. It can be a smaller vertical logo or a larger one that takes up a large area of the right side of the garment. Use the right neck alignment and experiment with different starting heights.
placement might not look right while your shirt is laying flat, but can be different when on a 3 dimensional person as some of the garment will be wrapping around their sides. If you place it too close to the sleeve while the garment is laying flat it becomes an armpit logo, not a left chest, shirts that are XXL and larger are common for this mistake.
Now that you know how left chest logos work you can combine them with other placements like a full back design or on the back collar to create a stylish garment your clients and customers will wear with pride.
