Art Requirements

Have artwork questions? This is what we need from you!

To ensure quality printing and the quickest possible turnaround time, we need you to have all your artwork in the proper formats. If you have any questions about these requirements, please feel free to contact us and we’ll be happy to help!

Artwork Preparation

Vector files are the best you can send, as each object in a vector file can be selected and individually manipulated independently from the rest of the image. Easily done in Adobe Illustrator, Corel Draw or other Vector-based software, we ask that you size your image to the size you want your print. If you are unable to provide vector artwork, we need the raster file of at least 300 dpi. The quality of the print is reflected in the quality of the artwork that you provide us! Artwork with halftones images are best if controlled through our software programs, as this ensures top quality prints and helps expedite the separation process, ultimately saving you money.

Left chest print: 4″ proportional at largest
Sleeve prints: 3″ wide (or smaller) x 10″ long
Toddler: no greater than 8” wide x proportional length
Infant: no greater than 6” wide x proportional length
All Over print: This can be used on any item. It is a style of printing where the image prints to and off the edge of the garment. The size of this is unique based on the garment and the design idea.
