Print file Artwork
The only form of artwork we can accept as print files are VECTOR GRAPHICS images saved as either Illustrator CC, (our preferred type), or EPS with ALL TEXT CONVERTED TO OUTLINES. Vector files cannot contain embedded bitmap images. We are PC based, so Mac only files are not acceptable.
Other File Types
We can accept Tiff, JPG, BMP, GIF, and most other graphics file types, but these will not be considered direct output print files. and will require our printer masters to rework them in order to make them usable for digital sublimation printing,silkcreen,heat transfer printing.
All raster artwork (.jpg, .bmp, .gif, etc) should be sent actual size. If you wish the image to be printed at 31 by 61. , the image you send should be 31 1/2 by 61?? 1/2 as extra bleeding.
We cannot correct for low resolution or poor scanning. Resolution should not be lower than 300 dpi, and while we can take images at higher resolutions, the extra detail will not translate in a screen printed image, so we don?t recommend it.
We cannot accept artwork done using word processor programs like Word. In addition, we cannot accept any artwork made using presentation programs such as Powerpoint or publisher.
