3. On A 2 Button Placket Shirt

Always position the design horizontally even with the bottom stitch line of the placket. Vertically, straight down from the end of the neckline.


4. On A 3 Button Placket Shirt

Always position the design horizontally even with the 3rd button. Vertically, straight down from the end of the neckline.

When in doubt, always err on the side of too high rather than too low on shirt. Likewise, always err on the side of being too close to the center rather than too close to the armpit.
