Hi! If you're sending artwork our way, we've got a few guidelines that will help make the process a breeze!

 

Most importantly, it's always best to send us the original files of your artwork. If you can swing that, its likely that we'll be good to go.

 

 

Acceptable Vector Art formats include:
.eps
.pdf
.ai
.cdr
All fonts must be converted to curves and colors must be in Pantone.

 

 

We can accept Pixel Based Art formats, however, they'll need a little tweaking before being screen-printed. We are glad to recreate the artwork for you if needed. Also, in some situations we may need to use a specialized technique called Simulated Process Separation(**See below for more details.) Pixel based files should be created "at size" and preferably no less than 300dpi.

 

 

Pixel Based Art formats include:
.psd
.jpg
.tiff
.png
flattened image

 

 

For Embroidery, we just need a DST file. If your artwork isn't already digitized, we can take care of that for you as well! Just send the art in one of the acceptable formats mentioned above.

 

 

**Creator Designs INC. offers Simulated Process Separation. Our artists are highly trained in this specialized technique where halftones of select colors are used to create a realistic or photograph looking design. With Simulated Process, we can guarantee a successful print on most any design! 
*Additional cost for Simulated Process Separation - check with your sales rep for details.

 

That should do it! And if you have ANY questions along the way, don't hesitate to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . They'll be glad to point you in the right direction.
