  • Transparent Backgrounds

    Raster files are made with dots. As you scale an image bigger, those dots get fuzzy. Best practice is to use images that are to scale or bigger than you need and have a transparent background.


    Be sure your image is at 300 dpi (dots per inch) at the size you want to print.

    Pay attention to element and font sizes, as well as translucent, distressed, and shadow elements. These may not transfer as expected or at all.


    Our new art tool shows image resolution, allows you to crop image, and makes ganging easy. You save more with gang sheets.

Design Specs Clarified

Your design quality and preparation is key.
As mentioned above, there are 3 key elements to successful printing.

When scaling a raster file, be careful scaling it up in size. You will loose resolution, meaning it will get fuzzy. Pay attention to the DPI gauge in the art tool. If your image is below 300 inch (dpi), at the size you want to print, your transfer is not going to be great.

Our process will print your design as uploaded. If you have a background box, it will print.
You can delete a background with our art tool but if you have a low resolution file, it may not do a great job. Be sure to change your view to see how well it removed the background.

The process that makes direct to film transfers uses an adhesive powder that we gel into
the back of your design. See our video, Making a DTF Transfer. This adhesive powder coats
a white layer of ink that is smaller than your actual design. So, if you have super small
elements in your design (.02” or smaller), there is no room to print white and apply adhesive
powder. These design elements will not transfer. This also applies to soft feather edges,
disappearing edges, shadows, some distressed and splatter designs. Some fonts have super thin lines. Try adding an outline until it distorts the font to have success. This can apply to all small elements.

There is much we can do, however, knowing these limitations will help you tweak
your art to be vibrant, full color designs that you can press on all colors of most fabrics.
