How to choose suitable size for your artwork

When having orders, artwork will be scaled up/down to fit the printarea size learn more. Because printarea size will be final size sent to fulfillment. Therefore, we suggest you to set Artwork size the same as Printarea size.

For example, if you sell mugs from Printful, the required printarea size is 2700px (width) x 1050px (height), then you should set the Artwork size exactly 2700 x 1050 px.
(Learn more about Set up artwork and printarea for mug.)

Also, your overall design's size should match your artwork size.
If a layer in the design is smaller than artwork size, it can keep its original size.
If a layer is bigger than artwork size, it will be scaled down to fit the artwork size.

Size limit
Our app currently supports artwork size to upload maximum artwork in 12000x12000 pixel (recommended maximum size 8000x8000 pixel for stability).
For Artwork Layer: each artwork layer cannot exceed 128 megabytes (Mb) and 128 megapixels. (You can calculate megapixel by multiplying the height with the width of image. For example: an image is 3000x5000 px --> 15 megapixels)

Uploading an image which file size is bigger than 20MB will take a while for the preview of image to be fully loaded. For this case, please wait 2-5 minutes, then click on the Reload Button on the right corner to check if preview is loaded.

Please note that the total Artwork Size are different from the Artwork Layer. Although you can set the total Artwork Size to be 12000 x 12000 pixel, you cannot upload an Artwork Layer with the size of 12000 x 12000 pixel (144 megapixels), as it will exceed the size limitation (128 megapixels). In this case, the Artwork Layer should be 10000 x 10000 pixel, then you can drag-and-drop it to fit with the total Artwork Size.
