Artwork Requirements
The quality of your imprint depends upon the quality of artwork supplied to us! All orders requiring artwork must be sent in as Black and White CAMERA READY vector art. Artwork can be submitted via E-Mail, on CD or DropBox. Laser copies of 1200 DPI resolution are also acceptable.  Whether you are Mac or PC based, we are able to accept your graphic files if you meet the requirements listed. To ensure this and avoid delays or art charges please adhere to our specifications.

 

NOTE: OUR DELIVERY SCHEDULE MAY DEPEND ON THE QUALITY OF THE ARTWORK SUBMITTED AND UPON ANY CHANGES MADE TO THE ARTWORK ONCE THE ORDER HAS BEEN WORKED ON.

 

 

 

Artwork can be accepted from the following programs:

 

  1. CorelDraw X7, Adobe Illustrator - CC or lower
  2. Photoshop - All EPS, TIFF, JPEG files (layered if possible)
    They must be 600 dpi or higher at 100% of final size or larger.

 

Please Note: Vector Art is preferred. It provides the best quality and allows images to be resized without loss of sharpness and detail.

 

If scanned images are used with artwork, they MUST be sent as a separate file scanned at 600 dpi or higher. (If not actual size, scan at a higher resolution. This will prevent loss of quality.)

 

EMBROIDERY:  Tajima DST files preferred.

 

ALL FONTS MUST BE CONVERTED TO OUTLINES, CURVES OR PATHS (VECTOR). IF SUPPLYING IMAGE FILES, FONTS NEED TO BE RASTERIZED.
