Teeshirtlove.com Photo Upload Information
When you upload images to Teeshirtlove.com you agree that they meet the acceptable content guidelines (below).
Photos uploaded for the purposes of customizing products on Teeshirtlove.com need to be in either the PNG or JPG formats. Each customizable item has in the details section a size description of the width and height allowable for uploaded photos. The largest areas (which you can find on our Fully Customizable shirts) would be the front and/or back panels, with a maximum size of 12 inches wide by 16 inches high. For simplicity sake, if a photo does not fit the exact dimensions, it will center itself within the available space. For best results, edit all photos before uploading. Optimal print quality can be obtained with a 150 DPI (Dots Per Inch) setting.
Tips for best results
- Avoid semi-transparent designs
Semi-transparent graphics (or elements with lowered opacity) don’t translate well in DTG printing. We advise using solid colors, or simulating semi-transparency by halftoning (if you do not know what this means, there are tutorials on youtube which can be found by searching for halftoning and the name of your graphics editor).
- Create designs with the necessary DPI
Simply typing in a new resolution value into the file won’t result in a higher resolution print. If your graphic’s resolution is too low, the best solution is to recreate it.
- Use transparency to your advantage
Black ink will appear gray on black garments because of the white underbase used during printing. Leave these areas fully transparent when designing for black garments.
- Avoid borders when designing sleeve prints
We advise against using graphics with perfect borders for sleeve printing, since the print can warp slightly when the sleeve is being pulled off the pallet.
- We don’t print white ink on white garments. Any designs containing white color will have areas with no print on them.
- White ink elements on bright-colored garments might look tinted. This is most evident on Red, Maroon, and other similarly colored garments.
- There might be slight discrepancies in print placement.
- We can’t guarantee 100% color accuracy if your files aren’t adjusted using our color swatches (download).
