Artwork for Dummies

Some tips for sending quality artwork...

Accepted File Formats

We prefer Vector Artwork in; .ai, .eps, or .pdf files. Please make sure to “Convert text to outlines” so we don’t need to worry about us having the font.  
If you are working in Photoshop or other Raster Image based program, please be sure to start your file at 300dpi.  We can work with hi-resolution .PSD, .PNG, .TIFF or .JPG files.
 

What does “print ready” artwork mean?

This term refers to artwork ready for production. If you have vector artwork (.ai, .eps, .pdf) most likely you are all set.  If all you have is a choppy .JPG file from a website header or an idea from Pinterest you may need some design support.   

Don’t worry we include basic design support with every order and can help you determine whether your artwork will give you the quality final result you want. When you look good, we look good!

RESOLUTION: High vs Low

We refuse to print subpar artwork!
We don’t settle for ANYTHING less than the BEST looking print.

We can help with artwork! 

Every order comes with one free hour of design assistance to get your artwork ready for production. Artwork needing any extra TLC may require some billable time from our art department.

If you have an idea but need a designer to help create an original creative design, we have an in-house design team that can help with that. Our in-house design services start at $35 per hour.

Can I see a proof before the order goes to production?

Absolutely! We create digital mockups for every order. This allows you to see the approximate size, colors and placement of your artwork. We use the actual product shots to give you the best snapshot of what your products will look like. 

Please keep in mind that the digital mockups are our best approximate representations. Colors, graphic sizing proportions & graphic placements may fluctuate slightly depending on garment sizes or other factors encountered during production.

When you look good, we look good.
