Artwork Requirements. If you will be providing us a custom artwork for your embroidered or printed t-shirt, please read these order guidelines carefully to learn about our requirements, company policies, payments, etc.  If you have an specific question please us an e-mail.

WE PREFER ADOBE ILLUSTRATOR FILES (.ai or .eps)

Please be sure to do the following to your file:

• Convert all fonts to outlines.

• Make sure all placed images are 300 dpi and are embedded in the file.

• Save art at the physical dimensions that you would like it to be printed

• Please indicate if there are any Pantone PMS colors that need to be matched. If no colors are indicated we will match the ink colors as closely as possible to the way your supplied artwork looks on our monitors.

• Please send all art ready to print. If it needs work, you may be charged an art fee. We will, of course, let you  know before hand, so you can authorize any additional changes.

WE ALSO ACCEPT ADOBE PHOTOSHOP FILES (.psd, .tif, .eps)

Please be sure to do the following to your file:

• Create art at physical size that you want it to be printed. Save files at 300dpi.

• Please keep all layers intact, and save art on a transparent background.

• Please indicate if there are any Pantone PMS colors that need to be matched. If no colors are indicated we will match the ink colors as closely as possible to the way your supplied artwork looks on our monitors.

(Note: If the art has been flattened or merged, additional art charges may apply)

• Please send all art ready to print. If it needs work, you may be charged an art fee. We will, of course, let you   know before hand, so you can authorize any additional changes.

However if you are unsure of how to do this leave it up to us. We size your graphic to fit the smallest t-shirt in your order. We use the same size graphic for all t-shirts unless different size graphic(s) is requested (minimums apply). (Having multiple sizes for one graphic will be an additional cost.)[/ultimate_heading]
