Export and File Formats

print on demand guide

1.The export settings for PNG (for designs with transparent backgrounds) should have no interlacing, and the compression isn’t important.

2. Export settings for JPEG (for designs without transparency) images should be in 60-80% quality.

We accept JPEG files with either RGB or CMYK color space, but our system will convert the artwork to RGB and remove the profile for all internal operations. The PNG format limitation is that it can only be in RGB, so don’t worry about that format.

Vector Images

Vector artwork created using Adobe Illustrator or CorelDRAW, is a popular choice for our merchants. With the vector approach, you can easily scale the created shapes with their original clarity and quality.

Ensure your products have better quality and less friction in the creation process with SVG formats.

SVG images mean:

SVG Format Limitations:

While some software like Figma allows raster elements to be exported as SVG, we advise you not to. If most of your content is raster – upload it to Printify as JPEG/PNG.

If your design contains text layers, the text needs to be converted to paths before uploading to Printify using popular design software like Adobe Illustrator, Affinity Designer, or Inkscape.

If you use EPS images or other vector formats – those images will have to be converted to SVG format using your preferred design software before uploading to Printify.
