Step by Step - How to prepare a gang sheet (Photoshop)

If you are new to heat transfers, one of the most common terms used for printing multiple images on one sheet of paper is called a “Gang Sheet”

Gang sheets are perfect when you have multiple images using the same colors and when you need multiple sizes of the same design.

Gang Sheet options are available in most all of our ink formulas and priced by the sheet. All gang sheet options offer a great price with no extra set up charges. The more you fit on the sheet, the lower your price is per image. This can be very useful when you need several sizes of the same logo. For example you may have a team uniform order which requires a full back print, left chest print or a full front imprint.


Step by Step - How to prepare a gang sheet (Photoshop)

Step #1

Create your document size by selecting one of the available sizes.  You must do this in your own drawing program such as Adobe Illustrator, Corel Draw or Adobe Photoshop. You can either create a new document with the required size or change the canvas size in your current window

Step #2

Go to the Document Color mode and select CMYK

Step #3

Begin placing your images on the sheet (sized to desired measurements). Place your vector image to the top left corner of the page.

Be sure to adjust any sizes if necessary to allow enough room for all of the images to fit.  

Step #4

Create a 1/2″ x sheet width″ box to create your cutting spacing

Ex. 1/2″ x 11"  for an 11x17 inch sheet

Step #5

Duplicate your original image by pressing Command + Shift+D and repeat until you reach the end of the sheet

Step #6

Create a Sheet length″ x 1/2″ box to create your vertical cutting space 

Ex. 17″ x 1/2″ for an 11x17 inch sheet

Step #7

Select the top row of graphics and then duplicate all by pressing Command+Shift+D and repeat until the end of the sheet

Step #8.

Save your image files (PNG) and be sure to embed all images before saving

Once you complete these  steps, you can then upload your gang sheet.
