Get Your Artwork Ready for Printing
Our talented, dedicated graphic design team can turn your design dreams into reality. If you have an idea or a sketch you'd like to bring to life, we can help you with that. If you have an existing image that you need tweaked, we can help you with that. No matter what your goal, we can help get you there. When it comes time to print your design, it will need to be submitted as a high-resolution or vector (Adobe Illustrator) file. Let us explain:
Artwork must be formatted properly before printing. Vector files give us the best print results. Those file types include .EPS, .AI or .PDF file types. Now, if you do not have the vector file, we can work with an image that is 300dpi or larger, as long as it's in .PSD, .TIF or .JPG format.
Now, .JPG'S and .GIF'S are the two most commonly found file types on the web. These formats are NOT suitable for screen printing. Though these images may appear crisp and clean on a computer monitor, once they are enlarged for screen printing, the result will show a bumpy, dotted and pixelated image. In other words, they don't exactly meet our high standards for quality printing! Don't worry: our in-house artists have seen it all, and they're happy to help you with the preparation needed to get your design up-to-par. They can use the JPG/GIF images you provide as reference for recreating the art, making it suitable for print. BUT... additional art charges may apply for time spent reworking and preparing these images based on the complexity of the final design. Of course, as usual, we will let you know ahead of time if we believe this will be an issue. No "surprise" charges here!
