Will my design be scaled up or down based on the garment size?
Our Mockup Generator shows the L apparel size and allows you to place the design on that size only.
While we scale down the design automatically for smaller apparel sizes, as shown in the image below, it will not be scaled up for sizes larger than L.
However, there are some exceptions to this rule. The following print providers won’t scale down the design for smaller garment sizes:
Monster Digital (some products)
SwiftPOD (some products)
T shirt and Sons (some products)
In these cases, the design will be printed in the same size as it was uploaded, regardless of the garment size.

How to check the print area size of a certain product variant
Follow these steps to check whether the print area is scaled down for a certain size of a particular product.
- Open the product in the Mockup Generator by clicking Start designing (if it’s an existing product, click on the brush icon next to the product in the “My Products” section).
- Next, click “Prices & Variants” in the upper-right corner. Deselect all sizes apart from one and click Update. Make sure that you have only selected one color variant.
- If the design is indeed scaled down for that particular size, then you will see a change in recommended print file size dimensions in the side panel. If these dimensions are unchanged, it means that the design won’t be scaled down for that size variant.
Please note: The print area visible in the mockup template (dashed line on the product) and the mockup preview won’t change as you select a particular size variant, as it always displays the print area of the L size apparel.
