T-Shirt Designers

Designing for digital textile printing is different.

In the last few years, we met fantastic designers who made incredible graphics. But once their art was printed, the designs lost everything of former glory, for instance, all the colors turned dull or the print was unsharp. Frustrating!

However, these problems are easy to solve. All you need to do is understand how your image “translates” into a print on a garment and what happens to your image in the process.

We can show you how to correctly set up your designs to make the colors vibrant and the images sharp. We can help explain how certain machine settings influence the final look and which possibilities and limitations you have during the designing process.

It doesn’t matter if you are printing yourself our hustling with some print on demand platforms like Merch by Amazon, we’re excited to share what we know with you!

T-Shirt Printers (Operator)

As a machine operator, you have one of the most rewarding but at the same time most misunderstood jobs in the industry. You usually get many punches from all sides. Often the reason for this is simple “assumptions” from others about what the technology can do.

We want to help you handle these situations. We can teach you how to know and optimize your printing processes and how to keep the machines running for a long time. We can teach you how to maintain ongoing quality control to fix issues like failed wash tests.

And most importantly, we want to show you how to communicate correctly with designers, engineers, and managers so you all speak the same language.
