We must know how to look for images with high resolution because the image will affect the print DTG results on the shirt. With DTG (Direct-to-Garment) technology, we can print any image we like on the shirt.

For example, with a resolution of 100 pixels per inch, the width or length you are looking for is between 800 – 1200 pixels. (Please note that “pixel per inch” is not the same as pixel. If the image size is below the pixel size, usually the print will look a little blurry.
