Building your artwork

The quality of the finished result is largely dependent on the quality of the original image supplied which is why we recommend you supply us either print ready vector artwork (Ai/EPS) or hi-resolution JPEG/PNG files, at least 300dpi and 100% of intend print size. Images from the web are usually no good to use so please avoid! A perfect artwork is bigger than 35(h)x45cm(w) and over 300dpi or vector file . Artwork for black or coloured garments should have a transparent background. Artwork for white garments should have a transparent or white background.

Vector based artwork is required for most types of printing. Adobe Illustrator is the preferred program, please save as a .pdf .ai or .eps files.

Ensure any placed images have a resolution of 300dpi and image size should be at least 100% of intended print size.

Save all fonts to outlines.

 

 

 

 

 

Tips and FAQ’s

The quality of the artwork supplied determines the quality of the printing.

We can print on the front, back and the arms of most garments. Other print positions can be achieved but please contact us with what you would like.

Maximum print size is about A3 size.

The quantity of garments ordered affects the price, more garments – more discount.

The amount of colours in the design affects the price.

The amount of positions we have to print affects the price.

Printing on white/light coloured garments is cheaper than printing on dark coloured garments.

Keeping designs simple generally works and looks better and is more cost effective.

We can generally print on garments supplied but it normally works out cheaper if we supply the garments and print it.

Very small text and very detailed logos are difficult to replicate exactly with embroidery.

Large sized embroideries, i.e. a design on the back of a jacket, will have a large stitch count and can work out quite expensive.

 

Embroidery consists of two processes; firstly your design needs to be digitised using special embroidery software. This converts the artwork into a format the embroidery machines can recognise and thus replicates the design into stitches on your garments. This can then be loaded into our machines for embroidery.
