- 22 Inches by 5 Feet
- 22 Inches by 10 Feet

Ninja Transfers does not charge for any file or art setup, however, when uploading your art, the following file types are preferred.
- PSD (Photoshop)
- AI (Adobe Illustrator)
Our preference: SVG files work best because it allows us to re-size artwork without losing any quality. However, as long as you upload a file (PNG, JPG, PDF) with 300 DPI, we'll be able to re-size the image to your liking, without losing any quality whatsoever.
For women's shirts, a 9" by 9" DTF Transfer design typically works the best.
Although there can be a large variance in sizing between a Women's XS and a Women's 2XL, we still find that the 9" by 9" sizing works well.
For information on Adult sizing and Youth sizing, check our other FAQ sections.
For youth shirts, a 8" by 8" DTF Transfer is suitable.
Although there's a fairly large variance in sizing between a Youth XS and a Youth L & Youth XL, an 8" by 8" DTF Transfer design is still suitable.
For information on Adult sizing and Women's sizing, check our other FAQ's.
For adult shirts, even with a size scale of Adult S through Adult 5XL, 11" by 11" or larger is recommended.
However, with DTF transfers you are able to modify the sizes as you like and still retain the bulk discount pricing on the whole order.
If you prefer to modify the design size based on shirt size, we recommend the following:
Adult Small through 2XL: 11" by 11" or larger
Adult 3XL through 5XL: 12" by 14" or larger
No, there are no minimum quantity requirements when ordering through Ninja Transfers.

Save Time Centering Your DTF Transfers
Our DTF Alignment Ruler Set gives you everything you need to produce consistent professional-quality results. We sell five different ruler sets to ensure your DTF transfer placement is picture perfect, no matter the size of the garmet. All of the ruler sets are made from strong, durable PVC material that won't peel or fade. The measurements are clearly visible on the ruler guides, making it easier to quickly line it up with the collar of the garment, saving you hours of repositioning and second guessing. Other tools included are pins and measuring tape, plus a placement guide.
Our DTF Alignment Ruler Set includes:
How to Machine Wash:
- Turn your pressed shirt inside-out before washing.
- Separate similar colors, weight, and textures. Make sure to not overfill the washer.
- Use mild detergent with cold water on a gentle cycle.
Warm water, harsh detergents, and aggressive wash cycles can damage both the garment and the transfer itself.
How to Dry:
We recommend hang-drying on a plastic hanger, but a drier works fine if you follow the steps below.
- Turn your pressed shirts inside-out before drying.
- Separate similar colors, weight, and textures.
- Use the lowest possible heat setting or Permanent Press.
DTF Transfers, which stands for Direct to Film Transfers, are an incredible new way of transfering any image onto any material or color without having to worry about technical printing specs you may have had to worry about in the past.
Every transfer is printed the same way with the same underbase. There are exceptions to this rule of course, but generally speaking, everything is the same on every material you transfer onto, making it much easier to have confidence that all transfers will adhere and appear as you desire on every order.
There is no limit to the color range, number of colors, or quantity that you can order in DTF transfers.
This wasn't possible with screen printing transfers because you needed to make sure that you were ordering the correct ink type for the garments you would be printing. It would also be quite cost prohibitive to order a small quantity of screen print transfers, especially when ordering a high color count. With DTF transfers, this is a thing of the past.
You no longer have to be a t-shirt genius. Your orders will be more profitable and consistent with DTF transfers.
