Your Own Design – Doc Cotton

Using your own print

Create Something Truly Unique


Our community of talented designers have created prints exclusively for Doc Cotton. For all the creatives out there, we strongly encourage you to use your own designs and create the style that you want. We can guarantee perfect results every time.

When using your own designs, please ensure that certain steps are followed to avoid any problems with the print and get the best results from us every time!


  1. Please ensure that the design naturally tiles, if the file uploaded is placed next to itself, it would seamlessly flow into itself, creating a continuing pattern
  2. If you are uploading a stand alone image then the software will naturally tile the pattern, creating a flowing design.
  3. For both of the above, we would recommend uploading a high resolution JPEG or PNG file with a minimum DPI of 300.
  4. At a 300 DPI resolution, we recommend uploading an image sized at 2000×2000 pixels in order for the software to tile the design optimally
  5. If your initial image is larger then 5MB or is larger then 2000×2000, please use a free online resizing tool such as to reduce the file size before uploading


With so much talent out there, there are plenty of designs outside of our selection o use. If so, please ensure that you have permission to use these design or that you have purchased ownership. If you are purchasing it, then read through the fine print and double check that you have the level of ownership that allows you to print onto our garments.

As with designs that you have created yourself,  please double check the design tiles and ensure it is a high resolution with a minimum DPI of 300.
