Print file guidelines

Print sizes

In order to print high quality prints, we need high quality print files. So here are Printful's print file design guidelines.

Graphics that do not meet our guidelines might not be printed correctly. 

  • It's possible for towel to wrinkle during the sublimation process, which may result in white streaks. Please read our disclaimer page for more info on sublimation printing.
  • Designs are printed on one side of the towel; the other side remains white. 

Sublimated Towel

Print file size - 62 × 32"
Actual towel size - 60 × 30"
Graphics that will expand beyond this boundary will be cut off
Safe print area - 57 × 28"
Keep important text or graphics within this area

Must follow print file guides

  1. File formats
    Please submit your files in JPG, PNG or PSD format/at least 150 dpi.

  2. File dimensions & uploading
    Please maintain dimensions when saving and uploading to Printful.
    We require full-bleed images to avoid white areas around the edges of the beach blanket.
    Remove guidelines when saving image-based file (.JPG or .PNG).

  3. Outline your fonts
    All fonts in the print files should be converted to outlines so you don't have to send over the font files. See this tutorial on how fonts affect your print files and how to format them.
  4. Custom logo
    Beach blankets don’t have a custom tag option. If you would like your logo printed, simply include it in your design.
