A .PNG file is needed for (DTG) Printing. A hi resolution (300dpi) .JPG that the background can be cropped out will work with a little editing if that is the best you can provide.
You can use Canva to layout and show your idea, but the finished art piece needs to be in vector or .PNG format. You can do a design in Canva with a transparent background and save it as a .PNG file and that would work for DTG Printing but vector art is needed for screen printing and Canva does not support that. Again, a hi resolution (300dpi) .JPG that the background can be cropped out will work with a little editing, but not preferred.
Most people that order shirts are in that position for the first time and are new to it so the internet is the go to for most people looking to print apparel. Your local printers though are your best option. You can work with them and have the personal interaction with them and really build a relationship with your supplier that you cannot get over the internet. This way there are no 3rd party miscommunications during the ordering and approval process.
If you are prone to wear a jacket then a front print is advised. If you ride a motorcycle or bike and or don’t like to feel like you're wearing a billboard advertising something then a back print is preferred. If you're advertising a brand or company logo then a simple left chest design and full back design works nicely.
Vector graphics breaks the art into layers and colors that are editable. Needed for screenprint. Raster art is basically a .jpg or tiff. They can be edited for DTG printing but cannot be used for screenprint.
Corel Draw Online Suite, Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator are the market preferred programs.
A .PNG file or Photoshop file saved in layers for (DTG) is best. .AI or .EPS or .CDR file for Screenprinting.
Maximum size for a front or back design for (DTG) is 15” width by 19” height. Maximum size for screenprint is 13.5” width by 14” height. Left chest designs are usually around 4” by 4”.
A full back print featuring your company logo and pertinent info such as a large phone number and website for advertising your business.
This depends on what you are trying to achieve. A design that has lots of text and is not ledgable or a design that is layed out poorly and not identifiable is bad. If you're advertising for a business or some other form of trying to pass on info to the public then to much info is not a good idea. Tends to be small print. People cannot take in all the info in passing. Ideally a clean and bold design that is easy to read and process the info printed in passing is the best option.
