To submit your art properly, the first thing is to take advantage of our templates available here. Listed are the types of files we would like to ensure that your project turns out great, and on time (without back and forth on getting art that’s usable).

Illustrator files: Please make sure your art is to the size you want it to be printed on the garment. All text should be saved as outlines. Make sure each color is grouped, or on it’s own layer. We currently use CS2 so no reason to save down in versions.

Photoshop files (multiple color): Please make sure that the art is to the size you want it to be printed on the garment. Art files can be no less than 300 dpi. We can not stress that enough. Images off of your website or myspace will not print on a T-shirt. Each color has to be on it’s own separate layer. All Photoshop files should be saved as .psd files unflattened.

Photoshop files (one color): One color designs can be black and white flattened .tiff or .jpg files if they are 300 dpi. Keep in mind that when sending art files for one color prints, where you want ink should be black, where you don’t want ink should be white. Feel free to send a little mock of how you want the colors to look if you like.

Button files: Please don’t resize the template as it is set up for print as it stands. Please note that everything inside the dotted circle is what is going to be visible on the face of the pin, but it’s important to have the bleed of your image go past that circle to the outer most circle. If you are using the jpeg template, but would like your message on the outer side of the pin, please just specify in your order instructions, and we will be happy to add that for you. Illustrator and Photoshop details apply to button files.

Corel Draw files: Please follow the Illustrator instructions, and please export the file as an .eps or .pdf file.

Microsoft Word files: We actually get a lot of files submitted in Word. Please just send the .ttf font file that you used on the design, and we should be able to work with it. Of all files, word files are the trickiest, but we have always managed to make them work.
