Our Software can open the following file formats. If you are unsure of what to provide please
forward this sheet on to your graphics person.

Adobe Illustrator

Embed or include all linked images
All Fonts should be converted to outlines.
Adobe Photoshop
All versions up to CC 2017
File Formats .psd or .tif file......will consider another different Format
CMYK (Four Colour Process) - 300dpi at 100% print size.
Do not flatten the Photoshop file if you created it with layers as it is quicker & easier for adjusting the file to
print to have the all the original layers
(unless file: jpg, we can help to remove the background.)
Please rasterize all fonts contained within Photoshop images before submitting
Do not include the Background (e.g. T-shirt colour) on the same layer as the artwork to be printed.CMYK
artwork should always be supplied on a transparent background
Embroidery
File Types Vector Files formats .eps, .ai, .cdr
Bitmap Files formats .jpg, bmp, .tif, .psd, .png (All over 300dpi)
With the embroidery we have to redraw the complete logo regardless of the art provided.
If a bitmap, please make sure it is a reasonable size 300 dpi file.
PMS colours are best to match to as computer monitors are all different.
Screen Printing - Spot Colours
File Types Vector Files formats .eps, .ai, .cdr
With the screenprinting we have to separate the colours and bitmaps make this very difficult to do this.
Vector files give the best reproduction and are the easiest for us to work with.
PMS colours need to be specified and also the logo should be sized
Screen Printing - 4 Colour Process Printing
File Types Vector Files formats .eps, .ai, .cdr
Bitmap Files formats .jpg, .bmp, .tif, .psd, .png (All over 300dpi)
With Process printing we can accept bitmaps as well as vector files. For best results make your bitmap 1:1
size. If there are any areas in the image that need to be an exact PMS we can add 1 spot colour, please
indicate when sending. As there is a lot of variation in monitors and printers a hard copy printout of the file
helps as we then have something to match to.
Transfer - Digital (Sublimation)
File Types Vector Files formats .eps, .ai, .cdr
Bitmap Files formats .jpg, .bmp, .tif, .psd, .png (All over 300dpi)
Digital transfers are a CMYK process and therefore we can accept bitmaps. Please size 1:1 and make
sure that the image is at lease 300dpi.
The printer can achieve 720dpi so the bigger the better the print will be.
Transfer - Screen Printed Transfers
File Types Vector Files formats .eps, .ai, .cdr
With the screen printed transfers we have to separate the colours and bitmaps make this very difficult to
do this.
Vector files give the best reproduction and are the easiest for us to work with.
PMS colours need to be specified and also the logo should be sized.
