T Shirt Printing with Your Own Artwork

high resolution
low resolution

If you are uploading your own art to our Online T-Shirt Designer, please keep in mind these useful suggestions:

1. Currently, our Online T-Shirt Designer only accepts .jpg, .png, .gif file formats for positioning only. You will be asked to upload a high resolution image later in the check-out process. For the best results, your image resolution should be 300 PPI (pixels per inch) at the size you want to print.

2. If you wish to upload a photograph (or raster or bitmap image), then be sure have a high resolution photo. High-resolution images contain about 300 pixels per inch at a given size. If you want a 10-inch-high print, the digital image should be 3,000 pixels high (10 x 300 = 3000). With a 3.2 megapixel camera, you can print out an 8x10 or smaller.

3. Vector file (eps, or ai) are the best and can be scaled as needed because they are independent of resolution. Raster images should not be embedded in the file and text should be converted to outline form.

4. If you need help with your images such as background removal or other manipulation, or if you have any questions about Digital Printing Resolution, please contact us.
