It is best to save your file as a .jpg. Recommended color mode is adobe sRGB. A manual that can help you prepare your files can be found here. You can upload files up to a maximum size of 150 MB. As soon as you have uploaded your file, you can see the quality of your file at the image quality.

Is your file larger? You can make it smaller in one of the following ways.

- I think color is very important, how can I be sure that the correct colors are printed?
Colors on a screen look different than colors printed on a fabric, that’s why we always recommend testing the colors in advance by doing a test print or by ordering a color chart.
