In order to get the best out of your product, it is important to know the dimensions and resolutions at which to design your artwork to maximize it's visual quality. Below you will find the information needed to design your products, including the measurements of each product and the resolution at which the design labs function. You may need to effect some changes to your high-resolution file to achieve these dimensions, like cropping your original artwork.
If your design is based on a photograph, many factors will come into play in the final quality of your image. The megapixels of your camera will determine the quality of your image, as will how steady of hand you have when taking the photograph! If you are working with a scanned image, the resolution at which you scan your image will vary depending on the extent of your scanners resolution and the size you intend your photograph to be.
Very Important! ArtofWhere does not check each product print file before your product is made. Please make sure your artwork is properly sized when creating your custom products or the product print result may be pixelated or low quality. It is not possible for us to reprint and remake an order due to incorrect artwork resolution.
The measurements of your artwork will vary depending on what product you are designing for. Set up your image size to reflect the measurements of each unique product. In your photo editing software, you may want to design your image taking into account the size of your design in pixels. We've also included the measurement of each product based on it's unique template.
When you are setting up your artwork in a photo editing software, the resolution of your saved artwork will make a difference in the appearance of your final product. Please take into account the resolution at which you are outputting your design when you are saving it. Each design lab is unique and works according to different specifications.

The colour system associated with each printer is different. When printing on alternative products, there are unavoidable differences in the colour outcome of all products. Even with the use of Pantone colour charts you will never get an exact match when viewing the final product. Many factors affect these variances, including when we heat set or heat press the inks into the product. Saving all artwork at the standard RGB will work great for all artwork. Our pigment printer has a colour space of CMYK, so when ordering fabric you can design and save and upload artwork using this colour space. If you are unsure about how your colours will translate on your product, you have the option of ordering swatches of your own design when it comes to fabric printing. We also have pre-printed fabric swatches that are available upon request. *fabric swatches subject to availability.
