Requirements if sending us your own artwork: Screen printing requires razor sharp, camera-ready graphics in vector format. Vector art provides the best quality prints as well as the ability to separate individual colors. This step is crucial for designs with more than one color since each color must be printed individually and requires a separate screen.
Bitmap art files like .BMP, .JPEG, .JPG, .GIF, .TIFF and .PNG will not work properly and must be redrawn into a vector image using graphic design software like Corel Draw or Adobe.
Photoshop files must be saved at 300 dpi with layers not flattened. Include any fonts used.
Assistance with raster and low quality images is available from our Art Department at a rate of $40/hour.
