Whilst each printing method is quite different, the printing files we use to print your products are actually quite similar. In each case, we require a high-quality file, but some file types will vary.

For best results, we ask for a 300ppi PNG to preserve your transparent background. We also ask for you to use RGB colour values when designing your artwork since our printing software converts these values to CMYK for print.
The maximum printing area for DTG is 32cm x 50cm.
We'd recommend sticking with elements no smaller than 10pt text. Elements at this size or smaller run the risk of not printing correctly, or degrading after printing during the first wash.
This print method is used for mugs, phone cases, and the throw cushions and tote bags manufactured in-house.
In all cases, please supply your artwork as a 300ppi PNG in the RGB colour model. Print dimensions and PSD templates can be found in our General Printing Questions guide.
Embroidery requires a digitised file, a specialised file that tells an embroidery machine where, when and how to place stitches. We'll digitise your artwork for you, and we ask customers to upload a 300ppi PNG to offer the best quality file be created. You can read all about embroidery guidelines in our Embroidery Design File Guidelines article.
