MARKETPLACE: How a perfect artwork looks like

02. 11. 2021

We insist on printing high-quality products to make our customers happy. That is why we prepared this guide for you so you can be sure to upload the best possible artworks. Not following our rules may result in your artworks not being approved by our team of curators or returned by a customer which nobody wants.

So what you need to do to prevent your uploads from getting rejected?


Follow our rules for upload:

  • Upload only high-quality images in JPG format.
  • Maximum size of an uploaded file is 20 MB.
  • The file size should be at least 2000 pixels on the smaller side with at least 150 DPI.
  • Recommended ratios are 2:3, 3:4 or 1:1. In case of different ratios we might not be able to offer all our printing options.

Please do not:

  • Upload more than 10 files at once so our system has enough time to process your files – especially if they are in a high resolution.
  • Place text or content too close to the edge of the artwork.
  • Add frames in the composition.
  • Manually increase the pixel dimensions of images.
  • Add filters to try and increase the quality of images.

Before you upload, make sure:

  • You are the owner of the artwork.
  • Your artworks do not infringe upon the moral, publicity, privacy or any other rights (copyrights) or another person or third party.


The most common mistakes when uploading your artworks


1. You upload bad-quality images.

You have to be sure about the highest quality of your uploads. All grainy textures and blurred backgrounds will be detected as low-quality factors that do not meet our print requirements. Keep that in mind as we might reject an image that might look bad on a large size print.

Please stick with our rules stated above and upload only those images that have at least 2000 px on the smaller size, the more the better, but please do not exceed 20 MB in total size.

2. You manually increase pixel dimensions or you use filters to increase the quality of the image.

Once you create an artwork in one size, you should not manually stretch it just to meet our requirements. We meet this case daily and we can surely recognize it.  

Filters can be used and we know it can make your art look interesting, but use it wisely. Filters make sense as long as they are not used to make something bad look good. Remember that printing might instensify the filter effect, so if you’re not sure about the sharpness of your design, do not put a filter on it just to cover flaws of your artwork.

3. Text or an important content is way too close to the edge.

When creating your designs, keep in mind to leave some space around important features that makes your artwork special. You risk that it might be cut off while printing on a canvas.

4. You use a colour frame around your motif.

Using a frame within your artwork is not advisable to use because you can choose this option of a white or black border while printing your artworks in our e-shop. 

5. You upload multiple images with just a slightly changed colour palette or a tiny detail.

We believe you can fill you art shop collection in different way than just use the same designs all over again and just change its colour. Originality will score you same plus points.

Now you know everything you need to know about uploading your artworks. So let’s start right now!
