Do Not, I repeat DO NOT use “Quick Export as PNG”. This exports at 72 dpi at default and causes issues.

The best way to save your design as a PNG is using “Save As…”

Once in the Save As Menu, select PNG from the drop down.

if you do not see PNG as an option, make sure you are in RGB color mode.


Illustrator

Make sure your Art Board is set to 15 inches by 18 inches.

Make sure any tee color layer have been turned off and only the design layers are turned on.

Choose Export, Export As… from the File Drop down.

Select PNG from “Save as type:” drop down.
Check the box for “Use Artboards” and Range: 1

Click Export.

PNG Options Menu
Select “Resolution:” as High (300 ppi)
and we recommend “Anti-Aliasing:” set to None

I hope this helps.

What program are you using or what program would like to see best options to use?

Is it easier or more difficult to design/submit a design?
I tried years ago but didn’t have any fancy-schmancy store-bought drawing thing on my laptop… It kept failing every time I tried…

It is easier to submit designs now compared to a few years ago. Designing on the other hand I am no expert. I leave that to others.
