If your artwork is not currently in suitable customisation format, we can convert your file for a £10.00 fee. Of course, should your file need conversion we'd ask for your agreement first?
High resolution JPG, BMP, TIF, EPS, AI
We accept all files types provided that the resolution is high quality. We charge first-time customers a one-off fee of £15 for converting logos or graphics into a digitised embroidery format. Your embroidery artwork is then held on file for any future orders. We set up embroidery text free of charge.
Vector AI files and EPS files.
Vector Illustrator and EPS files are the preferred files types. It's easy to differentiate between vectors and other formats. If you zoom into a vector, you will see no jagged edges or distortion. If you zoom into a bitmap, the image and edges become blocky.
Don't create a bitmap file and then save it as an AI or EPS file: it's still a bitmap and would be unusable unless we re-draw it for a fee.
Pantone spot colours
All colours should be converted to spot colours. Within Illustrator and other packages, individual colours can be selected and changed to their Pantone equivalents. For more details, please refer to the software documentation or browse the internet. When we screenprint, we first print one colour, then a second, etc: this is why we need colour separated files.
TIF and PSD bitmap files (suitable for single colour prints)
Artwork files must be of the actual print size or larger and must be a minimum of 300d at the print size. Colours should be separated in layers. TIF and PSD bitmap files are not a preferred method and may incur extra costs if the file requires manipulation.
Adobe PDF Files
PDFs must be created from vector files and maintain edit capabilities. Don't create a bitmap file and then save it as a PDF file: it's still a bitmap and would be unusable and would be subject to a re-draw fee.
