3 step for an Amazing Patches up Gi


Gis patches placement for an international competitor who competes under the IBJJF tournament needs to follow the Instruction below.

For Non Competitor Patches placement
If you are not a competitor than there is nothing to worry about, with TheGis there is no limitation on where you choose to place your patch, here are some suggestions of commons places to patches up your gi.

2. Patch ideas and limitation

Please choose your patches according to our guideline

RULE: Do not use artwork from other Kimonos company ( their trademark, logo, artwork, brand ) or clothing brand ( Nike, Louis Vuitton, Bitis ), we have big respect for people who make those design and do not want to use their image without permission.

Limitation: Our print machine is capable of printing any type of image, colors except for GREY. Grey color will turn brownish.

2.1 Printed patches requirement

When choosing the image to make a custom patch, please note the advice below for the best-printed quality.

  1. The best result for BIG PATCH (A3 paper size 297mm x 420mm) print: Image with more than 10mb of Pixel

  2. The average result for A3 paper size ( 297 x 420mm) print: Image with more than 5mb of Pixel

  3. For an image with actual print size under 10cm: 1mb~3mb of the pixel is acceptable

However, we will print what you send to us and follow your instruction, we will let you know if the image does not meet our print quality and can result poorly.

2.2 High-quality image library

Here are some of our preferred site to find a High quality Image,

*Note: You must purchase the stock image yourself, we will not pay for the stock image.
