Follow these 6 simple steps to design and prepare your Sweat-Shirt for print:

  1. Choose from available Sweat-Shirt sizes.

    There is a variety of available Sweat-Shirt sizes at Cloudprinter.com — starting from S up to 5XL. 

    Choose the one that fits you best and keep in mind that the print zone remains the same independently of the Sweat-Shirt size.  

    For now, only regular fit Sweat-Shirts with a round neck are available, but more types are coming soon.

  2. Opt for Sweat-Shirt material and colour.

    Currently, there are 8 available Sweat-Shirt colours at Cloudprinter.com — grey, black, yellow, red, green, white, blue.  

    You can also check the accessible Sweat-Shirt materials and choose the one you like.

  3. Decide whether you want to print on the front of the backside of the Sweat-Shirt. 
    You can choose whatever fits you best — place your picture on the front side of your Sweat-Shirt or on the backside.
  4. Keep in mind that the print area on the Sweat-Shirt is fixed — 16х14 in (406.4х355.6 mm).

    The print area doesn't change depending on the size of your Sweat-Shirt. You can only include your picture within the limits of the print area — 16х14 inches (406.4х355.6 mm).

    You can either print a picture in the maximum possible size (16x14 in) or place a picture of a smaller size wherever you want within the limits of the print zone. 

    It concerns printing both on the front and back sides of your Sweat-Shirt.

  5. Select the picture for your Sweat-Shirt

    Make sure your picture quality and size are appropriate for the Sweat-Shirt print area. 

    That's important to make sure the picture isn't blurred and meets your expectations when printed. 

    You can go for a multi-colour or 1-2 colours picture — whatever is better for you.

  6. Prepare file for printing.
  • Set 300 DPI resolution;
  • Choose RGB print;

Well done! Now you can print your Sweater-Shirt all over the world as close to the delivery destination as possible.
