Transparency: How to Keep Your Designs Looking GREAT!


Today we’re going to discuss a very important yet infrequently discussed topic in designing for apparel: TRANSPARENCY. 

To have your designs looking their best on any product we carry, please be sure to set the opacity of any layer to 40% transparency or greater.

Any less than 40% and your awesome designs run the risk of not appearing on the product, or worse, appearing blurry.

Luckily, that bummer is easily avoidable!

Here’s how:

1. Select the layer you’d like to manipulate and select the Opacity drop-down menu.


2. A slider will be triggered; make sure it’s set to 40% or greater.
