Resolution and File size

How to choose your file size for fabric printing

We have been asked a number of questions regarding the size of the file to be uploaded for a good quality print on fabric. In this post, we will explain how to calculate a necessary file size to be able to print good quality images on fabric

The quality of the printing will be determined by the file size and its resolution.

If your image is already in digital format, such as jpg, tiff, png or other, make sure it is 150 – 300 dpi (dots per inch). On jpg files you can see the size and resolution of the image in its properties (right mouse click on image – properties - details).

Read More

As we see on the image below, our file size is 2084 x 1474pixels at 96 dpi (dots per inch).

Details

If your file is not in digital format, but is on paper or other material, we recommend it to scan at the resolution of 150 - 300dpi.

Step and repeat or continuous pattern for textile printing

If you use step and repeat pattern, you print many files put next to each other. It is like a mosaic. In this case the file size of 2-3 MB is normally big enough to have a good printing quality on fabrics.

Single file printed on fabric

If you would like to print just one file with a bunch of flowers on the fabric, which is 1.5m wide and 1m long, you would need quite a big file, to make sure that the printed work is looking good and not pixelated.

How to calculate, how big file would you need for printing on fabric

  1. For good quality you would need at least 150dpi (dots per inch).
  2. Let’s assume that the width of the fabric you want to print is 1000mm or 40 inches. (1 inch = 25.4mm)
  3. And Length of the fabric you want to print on fabric is 1000 mm or 40 inches.
  4. So, the width of file should be 150dpi x 40 = 6000 pixels; Length, 150dpi x 40 = 6000 pixels.
  5. The Size of your file should be 6000 x 6000 pixels.
  6. If you print in greyscale, the size of each pixel is 1 byte;
  7. If you print RGB, the size of each pixel is 3bytes;
  8. 6000 x 6000 x 3 = 36000000 Bytes or 34.3MB.

As you see, you would need a very big file size, but it will be enough for a good quality picture of a bunch of flowers printed on fabric.

Rule of thumb for file size for textile printing

There is also a very simple rule of thumb. For A4 format you would need a 12MB file size to have a good quality non-pixelated image. 

If you are not sure about the file size, please contact us, we will help you.

Wool

Most wool comes from sheep and goats, but wool is also taken from camelids (camels, llamas, etc.) and special rabbits.

Reactive ink

Reactive dyes are made of coloured organic substances, primarily used for dying textiles. After chemical reaction, reactive dyes form a bond between the dye and fabric fibre.

Pigment ink

Water insoluble. Binder chemicals are incorporated in to ink. The Ink stays on the surface of the fabric.
