Print File Guidelines

December 27, 2016

In order to print high quality prints, we need high quality print files. So here are Museae'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.


  1. Image size
    Make sure the file image size does not exceed 4MB.
  2. File dimensions & uploading
    Please maintain dimensions when saving and uploading to Printful.
    Remove guidelines when saving image-based file (PSD or PNG).
  3. Color
    Make sure the printfile is set in RGB color space. 
  4. 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.
  5. Fonts
    All fonts should be converted to outlines, so you don't have to send over the font files. 
  6. File format
    Please submit your files in PNG or PSD format/at least 150 dpi.


    Below you will find the required resolutions for our alternative products. To achieve these exact dimensions you may need to crop your original high-resolution file. However, do not increase the size by resampling in a photo edition program, as this will distort the quality of your work.
