Design requirements, background removal & copyright

I have a coloured background that I don't want printed!

Email us your artwork to info@blueprintsapparel.com.au and we will remove it for you free of charge!

How can I ensure my artwork is centered and will print ok?

We have been printing for years and know that online it can be hard sometimes to centre the artwork 100%. So we take care of centering all artwork for you and if your design is off centre or a pocket print we make sure we get it looking right. If we are unsure we always ring and check to make sure before we print.

We also call if we think your artwork needs any touch ups.

How can I upload scanned images, photo's or sketches?

The best way to do this is to scan your photo, sketch or anything you want printed that is in a 'hard copy'. Set your scanner settings on 'high detail' or '600dpi'. Then you will have to convert the file type to a jpg or png file. This is easy; either email us your image at info@blueprintsapparel.com.au and we can do it for you or simply open the image up and click 'save as' and select jpg or png. If you have a scanned image and want to remove the background then emails you artwork to us and we will discuss the best option for you.

What files can I upload?

Try use large artwork that is crisp when you zoom in and enlarge it on your computer screen. (in technical terms an image with 200dpi or more is ideal) If you can supply artwork with a transparent background that is also ideal but if you can't don't worry email us at info@blueprintsapparel.com.au and we will erase it for you for free!

Printing

What do the prints look & feel like?

We use the industry leading Brother GT 782 & GT 381 printers which use premium soft feeling eco friendly inks direct from Japan. They aren't thick or have a plastic feel to them like many other printers. We don't use tacky heat transfers because they look unprofessional and crack, fade and peel after a couple of washes.

What types of printing do you offer?

We offer digital direct to garment printing (NOT transfers), and traditional silkscreen printing all in house. These processes offer professional print washabilty.

How long do the prints last?

Blueprints Apparel at the forefront of technology

We are one of the biggest DTG printers in Australia. We've earnt that status because of our commitment to a great product and lasting prints. Come in and check out the quality of our prints in person. There are only a select few printers in Australia who use the Brother 782 & 381 printers with Oeko Tech Class 1 certified inks and therefore our prints last much longer than many other printers.

How long do they last?

Our direct to garment prints will last over 50 washes with care, our bulk order printing (screenprinting on over 25 units) will last for years.

How do I look after my garment?

  • Cold water gentle wash inside out
  • Iron inside out (only if you must)
  • Do not tumble dry
  • Don't dry in direct sunlight
