Artwork and Design Specs

WHAT IS ARTWORK? – Artwork is a term used to define ANY type of design that you want us to print. Whether the design is just text, a company logo, a sketch on a piece of paper, etc. It’s all called “Artwork”.

Before we create the films and screens for your screen printed order, or the digitized files for your embroidery order, we need to put your design into our computers.

You can send us the artwork file that you have on your computer via email. Below is a list of file formats that we accept as well as some guidelines to make sure you’re sending the highest quality file possible to produce the best quality print or embroidery.
