In order to have a digital image printed successfully, your design must
The exact description of the printable area can be found in the product details. Be aware that the design size should fit the print area, but not exceed 15 x 15 inches. Minimizing the design is always a possibility without losing picture quality, however, enlargements are not since the design will appear "pixelated".
The print is sprayed directly onto the apparel. For colored apparel, a white underlay is put in place first before the design is printed on top. It’s important to keep this mind if the edges of your design fade to a transparent edge. The color will fade to the white underlay, and not blend in with the color of the T-shirt. To achieve the latter, make sure all tones are solid, and then use the dithering effect instead of gradient shading. Dithering simulates continuous tones, so that you can use color gradients and still achieve quality print results.
The mentioned requirements also apply for printing on buttons. The minimum graphic resolution should be no less than 400 dpi.
If you want to use graphics that have a physical background around the actual design, this background will show on the print. This is also true for e.g. a white background on a white T-shirt. Unwanted effects may occur. Here you can find out how to make the background transparent.
*Special note for shop owners: Digital designs are printed on the products in the CMYK color model. However, the design on your computer screen appears in the RGB color model. This may lead to differences in the appearance of the colors. We recommend checking the appearance of your pixel graphic in both CMYK and RGB color models. We also recommend uploading transparent .png or .gif files.
