Artwork Requirements

Please take some time to read and follow our artwork requirements. This will help avoid any delays in processing your orders and avoid any extra processing costs, due to missing fonts or low-resolution images.

Fonts

Fonts can cause problems if you've used a font or typeface that we don't have, the document will print incorrectly. All fonts within your artwork need to be converted to outlines, or paths. This effectively means that the text is no longer text - it has become a graphic, and the text cannot be altered.

Fine Details

To ensure fine details & small text in your image print clearly make sure that the smallest areas are at least as thick as our minimum print tolerance of 0.35mm / 1pt

Vectors

To ensure fine details and your image prints sharply and at the highest quality, make sure that your graphics are vectors where possible. Artwork containing small or fine elements will  ONLY  be accepted as vectors.

If you need artwork vectorised please use our vectorising page to request a quote.

Colours

All files should be CMYK colour mode. RGB colours or RGB files will be automatially converted to CMYK which may lead to a colour shift in your artwork.

We use FOGRA 39 colour profile.  We recommend you assign this colour profile to your file - this can be set using European Prepress colour settings in your graphics package.

Pantone Shades :  Please assign any Pantone shades you require to your artwork.

Not all Pantone shades can be reproduced exactly by the CMYK process, we cannot guarantee exact matching. 

Use the PANTONE CMYK Colour Bridge shades where possible for compatible CMYK pantone shades.

Please submit all artwork as  High Quality PDF in CMYK colour mode

Backgrounds and White Elements

Any white elements that are to be printed should be left as white in your file.

Please don't put a coloured background in your file, our system detects any white elements in the file automatically.

You can add a separate visual of the artwork on the coloured garment for reference on a second page of the PDF that you upload.

File Prep for Custom Cut Transfers

1. Create a new CMYK document or art-board in your graphic design program. make the size of the document the size of the transfer you need to order.

2. Import your vector graphic.

  • Convert all fonts to outlines / curves

  • Check fine detail is not smaller than our minimum line thickness

  • Remove any backgrounds or white elements that are not needed 

  • Do not mirror your artwork

3. Size the graphic to the exact size you need it to print

4. Export as a High Quality PDF.
