Default Spread shirt use full print area on shirt

First off, Hi guys after a while monitoring this forum I decided to join in

I am having some trouble with the spreadshop shirt designer in using the complete printable area of the shirt for DTG designs.

I tried everything within their printing conditions / terms. like the 4000 px, 300 dpi and printable shirt dimensions. It seems that every time the design is scaled to cover approximately 75% of the vertical area. Even though the designer software shows that it's for example 60% scaled, i cannot enlarge the design to cover the full dimensions. I even tried to upload a simple rectangular shape to cover the complete size.

Now i am wondering if it is even possible to use the full printable design area in the spreadshop or do I really have to upload two designs and pay double if i want to use the full size. Or and i hope that i'm overlooking something?

Does anyone experienced similar or has a solution to this issue.

Kindly share

Thanks in advance.

unfortunately thats how spreadshirt works. I've gotten around it by using 2 images however, depending on the design, you could run into alignment issues.

If any other company can print one image on the entire front, Spreadshirt should be able to as well.

Thanks for your reply blinger,

And by using 2 images I assume your using two designs and paying double the costs right.

Well then it's going to be very simple for me, or use two designs or adjust the current design.

I do find it somewhat a sadly that they offer this big printable area but then can only be covered by two designs.

I wonder if it is the result of system restrictions... and that they plan on working for a better workaround.

This is probably about the biggest space I've been able to achieve. It serves my purposes but I've always been curious about how they determine scaling and dimensions.

Attached image:
2311 px X 3540 px
19.3 inches X 29.5 inches PNG
Scalable (min. 2%)

Is this about how much print area everyone else is getting?

They obviously will incur more costs if the design is bigger due to extra materials being used etc so i can see why they only let you scale so big. But instead of making you upload 2 images why doesnt the software just up the price as the size scales up, for eg per sq cm over a certain size, this also would give the advantage of small chest logos being slightly cheaper I have this here NOT FOR TEXT but for images on a test product I am using, if you upload a small file then scale it you will see what I mean.Are you sure you dont have a setting in the software for this (sorry I dont know spreadshirt too well.

I ran into the same print issues with Spreadshirt. With the smaller child size t-shirts, spreadshirt agreed that they could easily print on the full area of those t-shirts but with larger sizes (L, XL, XXL) they would be unable to cover the desired area, but were working on trying to resolve the problem. In other words, 'We'll print it whatever size you like as long as its not large!"

I am not in our graphics department, but judging by your given dpi and pixels, you need to resize within our guidelines, then the designer will allow you to size up further. As far as the printable area, the pallets on our DTG printers are only so large. Which is where there is no alternative to have a print go from 1" under collar down to the seam at the bottom, unless as mentioned using 2 images. This also means the product must run thru the dryers twice, once for each print. Sadly your limited to the printable pallet size. Here is a link that may help further, as mentioned this is not my department of expertise within our company.

And up until recently, we really didn't read up on this forum. I just took a joint position of my original with addition of production support and I intend on trying to get more in touch with this and our own hosted forum. So hopefully I can offer much needed help to our customers now!

Default Re: Spread shirt use full print area on shirt

I have been having this issue and tried many times to get a resolution, I think there are built in limits.

according to information i have so far.

15x15" is the UPLOAD limit. Now this is different form printable area per shirt.

But when you have a 15 by 15 uploaded you can scale it.
So a 12" by say 14 can become approx a 13.2 x 16

I was told the machine will DTG over 15" infact would print the entire shirt print area, IF the uploaded 15x15 was scaled to say 18" length.

sadly the scaling isn't going to help sharpness of print.
and with a 10mb limit you are often forced to scale image even smaller in order to upload.

Its all very confusing and the online software doesn't help when you drop a file into it. it scale it according to DPI, or that is what I was told.

been a graphic artist for 30 years and I'm confused! lol
