File Guideline

Must-follow guidelines

Submit PNG or JPEG files, with a minimum of 200 DPI (300 DPI for better quality)

For designs with transparent backgrounds we recommend using PNG. For other designs we advise to prepare files in JPEG in this case the background color of the design will also be printed.

Create color profile files in sRGB

Make sure you build your print file in sRGB color profile to ensure your design looks the same when printed as it does on screen.

Avoid semi-transparent designs

Semi-transparent graphics (or lower-opacity elements) don’t translate well in DTG printing. We suggest using solid colors or using halftoning to simulate semi-transparency. 

Create designs with the appropriate DPI

Entering a new resolution value into the file simply will not result in a higher resolution print. If the resolution of your graphic is too small the only way is to rebuild it.

Use transparency to your benefit

Black ink on black garments will appear gray due to the white underbase used during printing. When designing black garments, make these areas fully transparent.

Direct to Garment (DTG) disclaimers

We don’t print white inks on white garments. Any white-colored design will have areas with no print on it.

Elements of white ink may look tinted on bright-colored garments. In Red, Maroon, and other similarly colored garments this is most evident.

There may be some minor discrepancies in print placement.

If your files are not calibrated using our color swatches, we can not guarantee 100% color accuracy.
