Graphics & Design Advice

  • How many images can I add?

    This will mostly depend on your images: the more pictures you add the smaller they will be.
    Also bear in mind that a close-up picture will show more details than group pictures or pictures with people in the distance.
    When adding images into your product or using the montage option, be on the lookout for the green/blue flags. When you see them you should take pictures off, also beware the duplication warning.

  • Colors variations across fabrics

    Color variations from the same graphic across multiple fabrics is to be expected to some degree.

    The fabric base color, opacity, thickness, weight, weave and light reflectivity can all have an effect on the print color and the appearance of the print color.

    Different lighting conditions will also make printed fabrics color appear to vary.

    Whilst we endeavor to ensure all of our printers are calibrated for each fabric, the above must be taken into consideration when ordering the same graphic or colors across multiple types of fabrics and inksets. Choosing similar weights and weaves can help to ensure your colors look as great as you would like them to.

    Please note as well that every once in a while, our printing team tweaks printer calibrations to refine colors. They are constantly on the lookout for new and improved ways to print, strengthening print processes and improving color precision wherever possible. We might also upgrade our machinery to optimize printing outputs. These can result in some color variations between two identical orders on the same fabric. These will be minimal however still slightly visible. In case some color variations may impact your work and you wish to re-order after a certain time, we do advise to order new fabric samples shortly before your larger print run. This will ensure you receive prints with a the closest color accuracy possible.
