Using the artwork created by a third party is an option many customers like to use. Adobe Illustrator and Corel Draw are our preferred design software. We will accept vector images saved as .ai, .eps, .cdr, or .pdf files (Illustrator files should be saved as CS5 or older) with all fonts converted to shapes or outlines and with any links embedded into artwork. Before having a third party artist design artwork for you, be sure they read and understand our art specs or contact us for clarification. Our in-house designers are able to create artwork from other file types, but designs sent without previously stated requirements may incur art charges.
Adobe Photoshop and other raster based image editing software can be used to make images for screen printing, however, when creating the images, please be sure to create them at the actual size you would like them to appear (we cannot enlarge or edit them without the possibility of distorting the image), send all original layers, not flattened, and at 300 dpi. Be aware that any raster artwork may incur art charges.
