Guidelines on How to Send Us Your Artwork
Please provide your artwork files on a CD, USB storage device or through email using the following guidelines:
All files should be prepared for use on the PC platform
Art department uses the following software applications: CorelDraw X3, Corel Photo-Paint X8 and Adobe Illustrator CC
Vector files made in CorelDraw (version X3 or lower) or Adobe Illustrator (version CC or lower) are preferred
When using tints as part of the artwork, we recommend staying within the 10 percent to 80 percent range to avoid lost or closed halftones
Please be sure to save all typeset characters as outlines (Illustrator) or convert to curves (CorelDraw). You can also include fonts with your project when sending
Adobe Photoshop, CorelDraw or Corel Photo-Paint files (PSD, JPEG, TIFF, etc.) must have a resolution of 300 dpi or higher at actual print size
Line art (such as 1 color logos, pens and ink drawings, etc.) should be scanned in at 600 dpi at finished size
Images taken from the internet are typically not of high enough resolution for printing
Specify ink colors in PMS/Pantone numbers only
Art charges of $25 per hour will be added for any computer time needed to change/reformat/recreate artwork not to specification
Please remember that the quality of your end product is limited by your original artwork
Color shading is achieved by using tiny dots of varying sizes which are known as halftones. An image that appears very smooth on a computer screen can look a bit grainy when printed on a
T-shirt. You need an effective way to simulate varying shades of color using only one color of ink.
In garment printing, we usually use a resolution of around 40 lines per inch. This resolution is higher than those used in other printed media such as new print, which uses 65 lines per inch. To learn more about color shading and screen printing, please feel free to contact
