Greetings from Digital Art
Expressions, Las Vegas Nevada.
Here it is short direct to what
you are trying to create the instructions below are direct for
if you have time to read all that is there.
Creating printable pixel designs (e.g. photo graphics) Printing on
Clothing In order to have a digital image printed successfully, your
be saved as .png, .jpg, .bmp, or .gif (transparent
formats, i.e. .gif or .png, are preferred) be at least 200 dpi not be
larger than 4000 x 4000 pixels
not be larger than 10 MB
exact description of the printable area can be found in the product
details. Be aware that the design size should fit the print area, but
not exceed 15 x 15 inches. Minimizing the design is always a possibility
without losing picture quality, however, enlargements are not since the
design will appear "pixelated". Printing on Buttons, Mugs and Cases The
mentioned requirements also apply for printing on buttons. The minimum
graphic resolution should be no less than 400 dpi.
they could have just said up-load your photo if it won't fit we let you
Here is what you need to know most folks
will take a photo with a phone or photo if your phone or camera is not
set to at least 150 ppi don't bother to up-load because your image will
look like a postage stamp. Your photos and images are best @ 300ppi, and
will fit 95% off Zazzle products.
Do what I do below
here are some hints
Hint : My design images are 300ppi so they can be
reduced to pocket size if you want and the others can be removed.
The JPEG Format
JPEG format, with its support for 16.7 million colors, is primarily
intended for photographic images. The internal compression algorithm of
the JPEG format, unlike the GIF format, actually throws out information.
Depending on what settings you use, the thrown out data may or may not
be visible to the eye. Once you lower the quality of an image, and save
it, the extra data cannot be regained so be sure to save the original.
GIF files support a maximum of 256 colors,
which makes them practical for almost all graphics except photographs.
The most common method of reducing the size of GIF files is to reduce
the number of colors on the palette. It is important to note that GIF
already uses the LZW compression scheme internally to make images as
small as possible without losing any data.
The PNG format
The newest, file format that's widely supported by the Web is PNG
(pronounced Ping). PNG was developed to surpass the limitations of GIFs,
and as a means by which developers can avoid having to worry about the
patent licenses associated with other formats. PNG was designed to offer
the main features of the GIF format, including streaming and progressive
file formats. It also provides greater depth of color, catering to
images up to 24 bit in color.
What is a Vector Design?
All logo designs were created in Vector format. Vector
graphics are based on vectors (mathematical expressions, also called
paths, or strokes) which lead through locations called control points.
Each of these points has a definite position on the x and y axes of the
work plan. Each point, as well, is a variety of database, including the
location of the point in the work space and the direction of the vector
(which is what defines the direction of the track). Each track can be
assigned a color, a shape, a thickness and also a fill. This does not
affect the size of the files in a substantial way because all
information resides in the structure; it describes how the vector was
drawn. (bitmap, JPG) graphics, or called Raster images are based on
pixels and so when scaled there is a loss of clarity, while vector-based
graphics can be scaled by any amount without degrading quality.
