Print Guide

We print exactly as designed by you and do not make any edits. Before getting started, please view the information noted below for best print quality.

Step 1: Make sure your design meets our artwork guidelines.

Step 2: View each printing method below before designing.

Print Method: Sublimation

We print designs onto specialty paper and use heat to press the dye onto the garment.
  • Safe Print Area
    Keep your design elements within this area. Pattern elements are actual representation of your finished product. Text or graphics outside of this may not appear on the final product once sewn. Model mockups are used as a product visual and not actual.
  • Use Full-Bleed Images
    For all-over print, use full-bleed images that span across each end of the pattern. If your all-over print design does not span across, space left will show the actual fabric.
  • Removing Backgrounds
    We do not modify or remove backgrounds. Please use transparent PNG files. For any blank space, your product will be the material color.
  • Print Color Variations
    Due to different materials and print methods, we cannot guarantee color match each product. You may place a sample order to ensure products are printed to your liking.
  • Cut & Sewing Disclaimer
    Because each item is handmade on-demand, it’s not possible to exactly align your design elements due to seam placement.  Materials out of stock will use a substitute fabric as close to the original as possible.
  • Product Branding
    For your own branding, you may set-up custom branding in 'Settings' or Kin Custom logos will be used.

Print Method: UV

UV printing is a form of digital printing using ultra-violet light to dry the ink instantly. When designing shoes with UV print method, it's recommended to use a light color design to avoid peeling. Natural movement of foot may cause print to peel in creases of shoe.
