The Best Graphic Dimensions for T-shirt Printing



When ordering a custom T-shirt, you want to make sure the quality is coming out its best. Well with us we have come out with a formula to get the best results when ordering from us. 


How to Create a Graphic design for DTG Printing


Creating your graphic design is very important for printing. If you want to produce quality t-shirts you are going to need quality artwork. 


Never Use Google Images for Graphic Design


Never download and use images that you find on google. Most of these images are someone else and are more than likely copyright protected. Must I add that the quality of these images is going to look horrible. Google images are definitely not intended or made for printing.


If you are planning to upload your logo to our website, It is best to make sure you have your dimensions correct. We recommend using Photoshop for this. If you have another image editing software you should still be able to get the same results following our formula.

When Creating your own shirt in photoshop. Use these dimensions to start.



Vector Logos


If you already have your logo created as a vector file, you will want to convert it to a PNG file extension with a transparent background. You will also want to change the color profile from CMYK to RGB. This can be done in photoshop. Below is a photo of how to change profile.

We now have a chart to help you match the colors in photoshop that you want to achieve. It is not 100% but it is great at getting very close.

DTG Color Chart. This RGB Chart will help you get your images as close for printing as possible.


Note: The lighter color greys may not be visible on white shirts so we do not recommend using the greys under 40% black for white shirts.



After you have everything saved you can now continue to upload your logo.

Congratulations, You have print ready dtg artwork.


How to create your graphic design for Screen Printing


When creating your artwork for screen printing you will want to make sure that your image is a Vector image. A Vector image is important because it can be scaled up or down without quality loss. You will also want to make sure that you are creating your image using CMYK.


When saving your image you can save it as a PDF file or any vector Format.
