COLOR ACCURACY:  We have loaded the apparel manufacturers’ Pantone PMS color codes as they have provided, along with their color name definitions. Unfortunately (especially with Heather colors), these computer generated colors that are useful for design mockups are not as accurate as photographs of fabric swatches or of the actual garment.

Please refer to manufacturers’ color swatches for the most accurate color representations on this website, or to product photographs.

In any case, due to individual variations in your device’s monitor and display properties, we can not be responsible for color variances between graphic representations and physical products.

Please contact us if you require exact Pantone PMS color matching (e.g. for logo design printing). Extra fees may apply.

Pantone PMS Colors


The base price for your selected product may vary by color and size within the SKU.  You can mouseover the color swatches and sizes at the bottom of the “PRODUCTS” tab to see the upcharge from the initial base price at top of the “PRODUCT” tab.

Custom printing fees are added separately.

To view the current pricing calculation for your item in Zwik Designer, click the link labeled “Price calculation formula” on the bottom of the “PRODUCT” information pane. (Click on the “PRODUCT” tab to view the product information pane.) You may have to scroll down to the very bottom to see the link “Price calculation formula”.

Using Zwik Designer


The Zwik Designer customization tool allows you to upload, create and/or edit your custom design and view it on a product mockup (not an actual photo of the base product, but a template).

Zwik Designer allows you to add text, images, clipart and other artistic elements to the apparel base product you choose.  Zwik Designer includes libraries of full color images, editable templates, extensive clipart, shapes, flexible fonts, and a freehand drawing feature.

These features can be found through the “Resource Tabs”.

There is a “Layers” tab to help you sort out and edit various elements of your design, if needed.

You will also be able to view product info and attributes for your apparel item, such as colors, sizes, and prices and view information on printing as well. (“Product” tab)

Then you can place the finished item in your shopping cart with the comfort of knowing that you’ll get the design you want!

While you can change the active base product from within Zwik Designer, it is best to select a customizable product from the website first. The website catalog listing of the product will give you the most product information and accurate photos.  The product images in Zwik Designer for mockups are templates similar to the product, but not phots of the exact product.

These are the main parts of Zwik Designer:
