CreateMyTee Full-Time Artists Needed

Our main value propositions are to be extremely fast, competitively priced, have a customer service level that is second to none, and provide professional art assistance.

Thus, time management and communication skills are extremely important. We have a high standard for the quality of artwork that we are delivering to our customers.

Job duties required:
- Must be able to work very closely with each customer
- Must be able to be professional and personal simultaneously
- Be able to adhere to the 24-hour first proof turnaround guarantee, as well as subsequent proofs
