Artwork Guidelines for Printing & Embroidery
Preparing your artwork for print or embroidery? This guide will assist you in designing and formatting your logo to get it print-ready before sending it our way.
We don't want your order to be delayed so by following our simple guidelines, you'll ensure that your design is correctly prepared for garment application. This will help speed up the process and your order will get to you as soon as possible.
Please read carefully as incorrect artwork can cause delays and a redraw charge
Artwork Guidelines for Print
To ensure the best quality results for your order, we ask that the design and artwork you send to us have been vectored and outlined, and must be in an appropriate file format (eg. EPS, SVG, PDF.)
You should be able to tell the difference between a vectored image and a non-vectored equivalent by zooming in. Up close, a vector will be clear and sharp, while the non-vectored image will appear distorted and blurred.
If you're unable to send us a vector, there will be an additional charge so that we can redraw the logo as a vector for you.
Artwork Guidelines for Embroidery
The guidelines for submitted a design to be embroidered onto garments aren't as strict as those for printing, as the design will be digitised and changed into stitches. You don't need your design to be vectored in this case, any image file format is acceptable.
However, we do ask that regardless of the file format, you send over the highest quality version of your design as possible to get the best results.
Once you have sent over your artwork, we will review it to ensure it meets the required standard for printing or embroidery.
We'll then send you a mock-up of your design on your selected products. This enables you to see your artwork in-situ, and confirm you're happy with the selected position, size and colours.
After you've reviewed the artwork and signed off on it, we're ready to start the design process for your order.
