Whether you’re a novice or a professional when it comes to artwork, we’re here to give you the guidance needed to make sure your end result is print perfect.
To avoid unnecessary charges and delays and to ensure you receive the highest quality printing please review our artwork guidelines below..
Artwork Quality / Resolution
As a general rule, you should aim to upload the best quality, highest resolution version of your logo/design that you have. If we feel that what you’ve supplied is going to produce a poor quality result, we can convert (re-draw) your file to a suitable file type for a small fee, you will be notified and ask for confirmation prior to this work taking place with this service you will also receive all file types to avoid any future problems.
File Types We Can Accept
We can accept the following file types up to a maximum of 50Mb.
jpeg, jpg, png, gif, tif, tiff, svg, pdf, ai, eps, ps, psd
(please note as above to avoid an redraw charge files provided will need to be in a vectored format usually in these file types pdf, ai, eps, psd).
Vector AI files and EPS files
Vector Illustrator and EPS files are the preferred files types. It’s easy to differentiate between vectors and other formats. If you zoom into a vector, you will see no jagged edges or distortion. If you zoom into a bitmap, the image and edges will become blocky.
Don’t create a bitmap file and then save it as a AI or EPS file – it’s still a bitmap and would be unusable unless we re-draw it for a fee.
Embedding fonts and converting fonts to paths (or curves)
If your logo has any fonts / typefaces, then these MUST be converted to paths (or converted to curves – depending on your software package). This simply means that the font is converted to a graphic object and cannot be changed. If this is not done, then when we receive the file and don’t have the equivalent font, we won’t be able to match your artwork.
Adobe PDF files
PDFs must be created from vector files and maintain edit capabilities. Don’t create a bitmap file and then save it as a PDF file – it’s still a bitmap and would be unusable and would be liable for a re-draw fee.
It is important to remember that we will not print any garments / signage before they have been proofed by email and then approved by you. We have an experienced team who will check your order and flag any potential issues – if we have any questions we’ll be in touch. If everything looks fine, we’ll still send you an artwork proof via email for you to sign off before we proceed with production (please note once artwork is signed of we cannot accept liability for any mistakes or spellings).
Maximum Dimensions for Print on clothing
The maximum width for print is 35cm although this is dependent on the position of the customisation and the size of the garment. The height of your logo will be scaled according to the width you select.
Please Supply All Colours As CMYK, If you wish for a particular pantone colour to be used for your printed design, it is important that you specify these when placing your order.
