I wanted to have an AI generated design printed on a t-shirt, so I needed to look into how to do this. The AI model which I used is called stable diffusion and was recently released as an open-source model, so anyone can use it, so that part is easy to achieve.
However, the images the AI creates are only 512x512px in size which is too small for a proper print on a shirt.
Here is an example for the text prompt “A rabbit bee hybrid animal half bee half rabbit”:
To get around the size limitation, I used another AI model (ESRGAN) which can make images larger while they still look very good. I tried it out and got very good results. Then the idea was born to put all this together to also enable everyone else to wear their favorite AI generated designs on shirts.
So on this website, you can enter your own idea as a text prompt and the stable diffusion AI will generate an image out of it. If you like it, you can select your shirt color and size and directly order it. We upscale it using the ESRGAN AI model, print it for you and send it to your door step, so you don’t have to take care of all of that.
And here is how it works:
