Guidelines - Custom Posters & Canvas Prints
What surrounds you is what creates your day-to-day environment. Set the tone with unique wall art. Be it posters, canvas or photo prints. They'll make a statement in any room.
In order to print high quality prints, we need high quality print files. So here are Printful's print file design guidelines.
All print files must be scaled to print size. Graphics that do not meet our guidelines might not be printed correctly.

Must follow print file guides
- File format
Please submit your files in PNG or PSD format/at least 150 dpi.
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.
- Horizontal or vertical
Images can be horizontally oriented – just upload a print file in that orientation.
