Art Specifications for T-Shirt Printing
We can work with most file types when submitting artwork. Oftentimes we receive a very jagged JPG file from our customers, and although we prefer something with higher resolution, we can turn it into a nice, smooth graphic if enough detail can be seen. We work hard to make your art file as clear and detailed as possible.
If you want to create your own file for us, here are a few things to keep in mind. Currently we work in Adobe Illustrator CC and Adobe Photoshop CC. If you send your art in one of these formats, be sure to change your fonts into lines since we may not have the same font available. It’s also a good idea to send a PDF along, particularly if you are sending an EPS file.
If you are designing your artwork using a program that creates JPG files, try to create the image in the actual size and resolution that we use. We prefer 300 DPI. For full front images, they should be about 10 to 11″ wide. Full back designs should be 12″ wide and the left chest image should be 4″ wide. We may need to re-size your graphic based on its shape or height.
If you designed the artwork for your t-shirt using an online design tool, let us know the site you used, and even better, please tell us what fonts you chose. Some sites use proprietary fonts so some substitution may be necessary.
Feel free to contact us if you have any questions. We’ll try to help walk you through the process.
