*While preparing your file for print, you’ll have to exclude the bleeds layer.

Follow these simple steps to design and prepare your Pillow for print:


First of all, you'll have to choose from available Pillow sizes and read specifications in your dashboard. Currently, there are two available sizes with more options coming soon — 45x45 cm FC (17.717x17.717 in) and 40x40 cm FC (15.748x15.748 in). 

If you choose 45x45 cm FC (17.717x17.717 in) Pillow size:

  1. Set bleeds
    Don't forget to add 20 mm (0.39 in) bleeds at each side of your Pillow to make sure you don't lose any part of your design.
  2. Select a picture 

    You can choose to print the whole Pillow area or select a smaller picture within the limits of the Pillow size. 

    Keep in mind that only single-sided print is currently available.

  3. Prepare the file for printing
  • Set 300 DPI resolution
  • Choose RGB print
  • Save the file in PDF/X-4

If you choose 40x40 cm FC (15.748x15.748 in) Pillow size: 

  1. Select a picture 

    The print zone is 315x315 mm (12.402x12.402 in) — you can either print the whole zone or choose a smaller picture and place it within the limits of the print zone. 

    Keep in mind that only single-sided print is currently available.

  2. Prepare the file for printing
  • Set 300 DPI resolution
  • Choose RGB print 
  • Save the file in PDF/X-4

Well done! Now you can print your Pillow all over the world as close to the delivery destination as possible.
