COLOURS - Our sublimation printer is CMYK, we will do our best to get colours as true as possible, this may vary depending on the surface printed.

DTG Artwork Guidelines:

● There may be colour variations between garments made within the same order or a previous order, as it depends on the moment the printing is done, the fabric and composition of the garment, images vary between different fabrics, for best results we recommend using 80 - 100% cotton.

● Printing size is limited by garment size and may have to be adjusted with no further notification.

● If you are creating your artwork file in photoshop, we recommend that you start off with a clean file setup to the size of our print, it is crucial to have a transparent background.

● Please ensure that your artwork does not have pixelated edges, this will result in a white line printing around the outside of your final prints.

● We are unable to print any copyrighted material or designs that may incite hatred.

● We are unable to print metallic colours such as silver or gold. Our machines will try to match these colours as best they can, but shiny prints are not achievable with water based paint.

● DTG is a digital printing method and unfortunately we are unable to print ‘transparencies’ onto dark garments.

● When printing onto coloured garments, the machine will print a layer of white ink underneath the entire print area, this means we must avoid using fades and semi-transparent areas within your design or the print will appear predominantly white.
