What are some other tips for preparing my file?

Here are some 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.

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.

Don’t use white ink on white items. We don’t print white ink on white products. Any designs for white items containing white color will have areas with no print on them.

Consider the color of the garment when designing. White ink elements on bright-colored garments might look tinted. This is most evident on red, maroon, and other similarly colored garments.

Please note that there may be slight discrepancies in print placement.
