Product Type's name is used for users to identify which product it belongs to when defining a design.
Original Width & Height
Your Product Type's sizes need to match your fulfillment requirements. If it does not match, the final product's design might be cropped or scaled down to fit in. Thus, we highly recommend you choose the exact dimension following your Fulfillment's instructions.
You can find Product Type's information on your providers' websites under other names, such as "Template": Where to find template guidelines of your providers
Safe Width & Height
This is the area that can be printed on a POD product. To ensure your design prints properly on each product, you need to ensure all important elements of your design are within the safe area on the Product Type. Each product can have different safe area sizes for its variants. They should match the requirement of your fulfillment provider.
The numbers of width and height need to be input in pixels.
