    For those wondering… I normally do knock the black out of my prints for darker garments but the point of this video was to experiment. I honestly think the print turned out great. Happy with it but remember, it can always look better haha. Thanks for watching.

    so there is a lot here, but just 1 quick note. You can 100% keep the grain in your art. A lot if what is lost depends on the Rip Software and the Printer being used. They are using Kornit Storms. One of the things about the Kornit printer is it pringing wet on wet, for want of a better term, That process tends to not do well with small detials, like dot grain or fine/small text. If your art has a lot of those details i would sugest a printer that uses Brother GTX printers or ever higher production shops that are using the Roq NOW printers.

    As an average person, if I create a design using high resolution and a decent file size… Do I have to worry about this process or is my manufacturer the one who ultimately ensures the print comes out as expected?

    $. Using a dpi of 450 (over my usual 300) has made a significant difference in the quality of my dtf and dtg prints. Great information in your videos also, there was information here I never considered.

    Guys is there any way to print a big image on a sweatshirt without making the graphic too thick?

    Would’ve been perfect to just take out the black in the print since it’s going on a black garment

    I usually remove the black unless the design is inside a box or a giant solid shape. I also switch over to cmyk mode to adjust the color. Then ibswitch back to rgb to make my png. So far so good. I'm getting good colors and my shirts when I test them have been coming out well. I have yet to try using lightning. That will be my next test.

    So while in PS, should we be designing using CMYK mode? I see most people still edit in RGB, makes no sense to me?

    Design with transparent elements print well with DTG if you apply halftones.🎉😅 That said the print came out awesome.

    Great video! Around 6:40 Ian mentiones that there is a lot of noise in an area of the file, but it's hard to see from the camera what this noise is. I'm mainly concerned what happens when we remove the blacks from the image, because often individual pixels or small clusters of pixels that were lighter than the threshold are left in the artwork surrounded by empty pixels, and it concerns me that this might not print correctly using DTG. Is this a valid concern and if yes – how can this be avoided?

    I spent an entire day last week searching YouTube for a video that would tell me this information – just went around in circles and got nowhere. So asked the universe, and today – Charlie delivered! Honestly one of the most useful videos I've ever watched in this niche. Cheers guys 😎

    Did you print black ink on the black garment or is that technically a dark grey? I have done numerous tests with my machine printing the black in the design VS removing it and pulling the black from the garment itself. Just curious to hear your thoughts on this. GREAT VIDEO!!

    Is it best to leave the black color on the design or should we removed it completely so that the black color comes naturally from the fabric? Which best?

    Did the price of the course increase? I was considering it but I feel like it was less than $350 at the time.

    for transparancy thing just make the design bitmap halftones like they do these days with dtf halftones, it works perfectly with DTG as well.

    Such a dope video! I'm curious what the results would've been with the black removed from the artwork. Or did he recommend keeping that in to help with the fine detail of the design? Regardless, it was awesome getting to see you get out there and show the full process with DTG printing!
