About this video:

In this video you’ll find out about ten easy tips to perfect your design print file that you can start using right now. If you stay until the very end of this video, you’ll see a very important tutorial about a unique feature that will help you improve your designs.

With that said, let’s start with the first tip.

1. Avoid Fade and glow effects

Try to avoid using drop shadow and fade effects or anything else that’s transparent for DTG prints, as it can have unexpected results. On colored and black t-shirts, the semi-transparent parts can look very pale, grainy and discolored.

2. Simplify your embroidery designs

The embroidery area for our products, especially hats, is very small, so when it comes to embroidery, think big. Small, detailed, or complicated designs are incompatible with our guidelines and don’t work well with embroidery.

3. Don’t increase the size of low-resolution files

If you increase the dimensions of a low resolution image, additional pixels are added to the image based on an algorithm. But the algorithm isn’t precise, so you just end up with a larger and heavier image, which is still blurry.

4. Be careful with bright neon colors

80s aesthetics are in, and we’re seeing more and more bright neons popping up in designs. Don’t be afraid to experiment, but be prepared that the print might look duller than it looks on screen.
These colors are mostly for use on displays and tend to be out of the printable range, which means they simply can’t be printed as brightly. Also, please remember that everything looks a bit brighter on screen than it does on the product, because screens are backlit.

5. Use the right file dimensions and DPI

Your print file should be at least 150 DPI and at original size.
What we mean by this, is that you can’t create a single print file of your design and then use it for a variety of different products.

You need to consider that each product type has different fabric, texture, size and a specific safe print area. This may require rearrangement of certain elements of your design to meet those conditions.
We always recommend using our templates, which already have a set DPI and size.

Make sure to watch the rest of the video to find out more about other tips and how to apply the halftone technique to your designs.
