Acceptable File Formats (VECTOR)

Vector artwork is an image created of points and paths. This results in artwork that is editable, scalable, and able to be separated for spot color reproduction. 


Digital artwork files may be submitted for orders. Artwork that is considered print ready is artwork that was originally designed in a vector based program such as Adobe Illustrator.  We are able to accept Adobe Illustrator (.ai), EPS or PDF files, in Macintosh or Windows format.  Artwork received not in one of the above formats may incur an additional artwork converstion / set up fee. 


WHEN SENDING DIGITAL ARTWORK PLEASE MAKE SURE ALL FONTS ARE CONVERTED TO OUTLINES / CURVES.

Unacceptable File Formats (RASTER)

Raster artwork is an image created of many pixels. This results in artwork that is not editable, scalable, or able to be separated for spot color reproduction  


Powerpoint, Microsoft Word, Publisher, HTML, GIF, tiff, Photoshop, Quark and JPG files are not acceptable, but we may be able to use them to recreate from.

Embroidery Artwork

Artwork for embroidery is different than artwork that is used for all other printing.  Embroidery machines require a stitch file that is specifically created for commercial embroidery machines.  For this reason if a "stitch file" has never been created one must be set up.  No matter what artwork format from the list above that is supplied there is an initial set up.  Once the "stitch file" is created it is kept on file for further use. If no changes are made, no additional set ups are needed.  There is an initial fee starting at $25.00 for this service.   The only way to not incur this charge is to supply us with a "stitch file" that was created from another embroidery company.  It can be emailed to us but must be in a .DST format.

Design Services

We do not currently have a "Graphic Designer" on staff.  However we do have an art department with staff that can help with designing of logos / shirts / artwork.  We do appreciate any initial ideas that help us start the process.  We are great at putting your ideas on a computer.   

Charges

Unless artwork is supplied in a print ready format in one of the above acceptible formats there may be an artwork charge.  Our hourly rate is $45.00 with a $10.00 minimum charge for each time we work on your files.
