In order to print high quality prints, we need high quality print files. So here are Printful's print file design guidelines.
All print files must be scaled to print size. Graphics that do not meet our guidelines might not be printed correctly.
Remember to remove all backgrounds.
Prints on white garments will not contain a white base unless otherwise specified.
Please be advised that we cannot guarantee 100% color accuracy if the files have not been adjusted using our DTG (direct to garment) color swatches for color correction.
Transparencies do not translate well in DTG printing. We advise that all colors remain solid.
Simply typing in a new resolution into the file will not result in a higher resolution print.
If placement is of high importance to you, please review our guidelines and ensure you have placed and sized your graphics to the desired dimensions/ placement. We cannot guarantee placement otherwise.

Print file size Make sure graphics do not exceed the maximums as specified in table above.
File dimensions & uploading Please maintain dimensions when saving and uploading to Printful. Remove guidelines when saving image-based file (.JPG or .PNG). Include additional mockup image with guidelines for correct positioning.
Background Graphics should have a transparent background, since every color is printed - if your background is white, then it will also show up on the print.
Fonts All fonts should be converted to outlines, so you don't have to send over the font files. See video tutorial
File format Please submit your files in PNG or PSD format/at least 150 dpi.
Custom logo To add your logo to the crop top tag, create a separate print file for your logo and submit it along with your crop top print file. The logo template is found in the downloadable crop top template folder.
