Redbubble has been quite helpful in offering Photoshop templates for several of its products. But not every product has been lucky enough to get a template. Blankets and wall tapestries, for example, do not have an official template. So I decided to make my own, and share it with the community.
Making Of The Template
One image, and therefore one template, is used for both blankets and wall tapestries in Redbubble.
This template is based on the guideline overlay you see when you upload a new artwork to Redbubble.
I imported a screenshot of this image into Photoshop and scaled it up to Redbubble’s recommended dimensions of 7632 by 6480 pixels. I then made the zones different colours and clearly labelled them.
Here is the document I created.
The .PNG is semi-transparent so you can just import it as a layer above your existing art. If it’s in the yellow area, it will definitely be safe, but red areas may get trimmed, so don’t put anything important there.
The PSD file has the guidelines on a separate layer, in a separate folder, that you can enable and disable as needed.
As you can see, the small blanket shows only the yellow area, the safe print area. The medium and large sizes both show some of the red bleed area. The blankets are not all the same ratio, so the amount of the red area used differs.
All three sizes of tapestry have the same size ratio. Most of the image will be visible, except a tiny bit off the top and bottom edges, and slightly more on the left and right edges.
I successfully used this template to make this ‘Let’s Talk To Spirits‘ ouiji board blanket.
I hope that this template will help you make bigger and better blankets and tapestries for Redbubble. If you liked this content, consider buying me a Ko-Fi to support this blog.
