DPI (dots per inch) is the number of dots in a printed inch. The more dots the higher the quality of the print (more sharpness and detail)
Resolution is the measure of pixels in the display, usually expressed in measurements of width x height. For example, a monitor that is 1920 x 1080 is 1920 pixels across and 1080 pixels down.)
The actual size is best described with actual numbers. Let's say you have a 5"x5" shape at 100dpi, but you need to make it a 10”x10”. If you simply scale it to twice its original size you go from 5"x5" to 10”x10” Since the size has now doubled, your resolution has been cut in half- that particular part of your graphic, is now 50dpi.
When you're submitting your print files, we ask that they're at least 150dpi and at actual size. The resolution of any file is only as good as the dimensions.
Our standard process is the Direct to Garment (DTG) method of printing. That means we can create photo quality prints, the amount of colors used doesn't affect pricing, and there aren't any order minimums.
Our experience shows us that DTG printed shirts are just as durable as screen printed shirts when it comes to washability.
We will not print anything that we deem to be someones else intellectual property
We only accept files in PNG or JPEG
PNG files- for those with transparent background
JPEG files- for other types of background but not transparent
300dpi is standard, sometimes 150 is acceptable but never lower. Artworks with less than 150dpi will have bad quality. Make sure you won’t go below it.
Largest possible print size on DTG is 4500 × 5700 pixels or the equivalent of 15” × 19” at 300 DPI. If the artwork is larger, the mockup generator will automatically crop the image.
Use sRGB color profile to ensure your design looks the same when printed as it does on screen. Otherwise, your red on your computer screen might look orange on the garment, for example. Use sRGB and you'll get great, accurate colors everywhere all the time.
When submitting artwork using our templates, remove the guide layers so they will not show up on the print.
Bleed is a term that refers to printing of the design that goes beyond the final trim edge of any piece of printed artwork to ensure the main elements of an artwork is not cut off. When designing your artwork, make sure you won’t put very important design elements near the edges.
100% cotton is best for DTG. It doesn’t matter what colour your t-shirt is, cotton will retain the ink much better giving you an exact copy of your design.
Take note that the same design will look different depending on the material you print it on. A t-shirt may absorb the ink well and look sharp, whereas another product such as a hoodie might look faded out because it absorbs the ink differently.
Three colors or less is ideal. Color is always a big consideration when you make a design, and at times, due to enthusiasm, people tend to use too many colors. This should be avoided for too many colors give a chance for more colors to clash with each other, ruining your design and shirt.
Light ink elements on bright-colored garments might look tinted. This is most evident in red.
Black ink will appear gray on black garments because of the white underbase. Make sure you don’t design the artwork with black color if you will print it on a black tee. Leave these areas fully transparent and submit as a .png file.
Opacity. Unfortunately, DTG doesn’t produce good designs with lowered opacity. Use solid colors only or create an illusion of semi-transparency by halftoning.
