What are the important things I should check on my files before uploading them?

Here are the things we need to check before we can print your design:

  • Size: 2980×4160 – this is exactly 400% of a Scryfall .png 
  • Format: .PNG is currently the only accepted File format you may upload in.
  • Opacity in layers.  all pixels need to either be 0% or 100% transparent.  You cannot have gradient layers of transparency (Instead of using transparency for blending consider using ‘Dithering‘)
  • IMPORTANT: White cannot be 000 RGB or 0000 CMYK, because that is transparent to the printer.  Please make sure you use atleast 4 shades off white at all times if you want it printed white!
