Below you'll find the details on how to provide us with the best possible image for your custom order. If you would like our Art team to evaluate your artwork, or if you just have a few questions, email us a firstname.lastname@example.org or sumbit your logo on our Quote page.
Accepted File Types for Screen Printing or Embroidery: (bolded types are preferred) AI, EPS, PDF, SVG, CDR, PNG, JPG, TIF
Vector Images (preferred)
Vector File Types: .ai, .svg, .eps, .pdf .cdr
Vector images are made up of lots of tiny dots that can be expanded or contracted when an image is resized. This makes vector images very easy to make smaller or larger than they originally were without making your image look blurry or pixelated.
Here are some vector artwork tips you or your designer can use:
Make sure your document is cropped as close as possible to the artwork
Convert all paths and text to 'outlines' or 'curves'
PDFs should be 1-page documents
Raster files are acceptable for embroidery since we have to recreate your logo into a digitizied file.
Raster File Types: .png, .tif, .jpg
Raster images consist of static dots, or pixels, that make up all the colors, shadows and highlights in an image. Most often these images are created by scanning artwork or digital photographs, or by "painting" with a photo editing or paint program (Adobe Photoshop or GIMP). Most images you'll find in a Google Image Search are going to be raster.
Raster images cannot be printed larger than they are saved without a loss of quality. For best results, create raster files measuring at least as large as the area on which you will be printing (if not larger), at a high-resolution (300DPI). Images taken from web sites may not be high resolution and may not reproduce well. Transparent formats (.png, .tif) work best.
