Gradients on prints



Designing for digital printing on products is a great way to add personalization and uniqueness to your products. However, it's important to keep in mind some best practices to ensure that your design turns out as expected on the final product.



One thing to avoid when designing for digital printing is using gradients on the borders of the image. Gradients are a transition between two or more colours, and they can be a great way to add depth and interest to a design. However, when it comes to printing on products, gradients on the borders or from any colour to transparent area can lead to problems.


The issue with using gradients on the borders is that they can cause colour bleeding, which is when the colors of the gradient spread beyond the intended area and create a blurry or distorted effect. This can be especially noticeable on products with curved edges, such as mugs or phone cases, as the gradient will have to stretch and distort to fit the shape of the product.


To avoid color bleeding and ensure that your design looks great on the final product, it's best to avoid using gradients on the borders of the image, or any trasitions from image colour to transparant background. Instead, opt for solid colors or use gradients in the interior of the design, away from the edges or any part of the image that has a transparnt background edge that will show the background colour of the product.


In conclusion, when designing for digital printing on products, it's important to avoid using gradients on the borders of the image to prevent colour bleeding and ensure that your design looks great on the final product. Keep these tips in mind and you'll be well on your way to creating fantastic, professional-looking designs for your products.
