ART REQUIREMENTS (APPAREL)
Accepted file formats include .AI, .EPS, .PSD, .PDF saved at final output size. Please send a color separated file with each color on it's own layer labeled with the chosen solid coated Pantone swatch and in the intended print order.
For Vector files, please convert all strokes and fonts to outlines. For raster files, please output at a minimum of 300 dpi although 600 dpi is recommended. Please keep in mind that all artwork must be completely solid art (no transparency, filters or effects please). If areas are not completely solid, either a 50% threshold or a high LPI bitmap halftone will be applied to ensure crisp edges. Trapping is not necessary for garment printing.
When using tonal artwork such as gradients or photographic elements, we find it best to output halftones or diffusion dithers on our end to best match our processes. However, if the designer or artist is comfortable setting up files for the printing process, we prefer a 55 LPI at 22.5 ellipse dot.
Lastly, we understand that setting up an art file may be challenging at times. If you have any questions on how to best set up your project for success, please don't hesitate to get in touch and we would be happy to help. Additional art fees may apply.
