Customer Supplied Art Requirement for Screen Printing and Embroidery.
When it comes to artwork it's garbage in, garbage out. If you submit a great design but it’s a low resolution \ pixeliated format, it will print the same quality as the artwork which will be of a very poor quality. To avoid this, we have put this little list together to help you avoid art fees and have art that prints great on your shirts.
Spot Color Art ( art that is made up of solid colors, no shades or gradients)
All spot color art should be submitted in Vector Format saved as a PDF.
The submitted file should be with your design on the product how you would like it to be printed or the desired size.
You can create your design using a graphics program such as Coreldraw or Illustrator. If you do not have a vector program download inkscape from https://inkscape.org/
(free vector program.)
All computer generated artwork must be PC based (not MAC) and in vector format, created by a vector based graphics program such as Corel Draw or Adobe Illustrator. Our file format of preference is Corel Draw (cdr) or .EPS or PDF .
When submitting electronic artwork make sure that all text has been
converted to curves or outlines and that all outlines are set to scale and when using multiple colors in your design.
We can not guarantee exact color matches due to variances in computer monitors and printers.
Digital Printing Files – 300 DPI resolution files in RGB colors works best in at least 10 x 10 inches. Even though digital prints don't have to be color separated we do suggest using the very best image possible.
Hand-Drawn Artwork– Hand drawn artwork is acceptable as long as it is black and white, using a black felt tip pen (not a ballpoint pen or pencil). Any traces of pencil marks need to be completely erased before submitting via email. Our team can add colors to the art once it had been submitted ( additional art fees will apply)
