Art Specs

Art needs to be at 300 DPI for best results. Providing the highest quality artwork gets you the highest quality print. We accept .AI, .EPS, .PDF, or very high resolution .JPG files. All type should be converted to outline. If this can't be done, or if you have any questions, give us a call at (316) 788-1550, and we will help you.

Acceptable File Formats
These formats give us the best quality image to work with.

Adobe Illustrator File   .AI, .EPS: Adobe Illustrator
The AI file is the original, editable, working file in Adobe Illustrator. EPS files are also acceptable. Be sure to convert all text to outlines and make sure there are no raster images included in the file.
Portable Document Format   .PDF: Portable Document Format
PDF format is becoming a favorite of most designers as it can be universally viewed on any computer with with a PDF viewer. It’s also possible to keep all the illustrator-editing capabilities when saving in this format, which means that it can be opened and modified the same way a AI file can.

Unacceptable File Formats
These formats are not always unusable unless adjustments are made. They generally require a lot of extra art time, if they can be used at all.

Photo_icon   .JPG, .PNG, .GIF
These are basic raster (pixelated) images and photographs. Unless it's a very high resolution image, these file aren't usable.
DOC, XLS, PPT files   .DOC, .XLS, .PPT
These file types are good for providing art instructions, but can't be used to screen print directly.
Photo_icon   .CDR
While these are usually vector files, these have to be converted to an .EPS file for us to work with them.

Vector vs Raster

Vector vs raster images
Vector files can be scaled to any size without any loss of quality because they're built up from mathematically precise points. You can see how a vector shape is built up in this image above.   Raster files are made up of small squares called pixels. This means that as you increase the size of your image, it will become blocky, or appear to be blurred. This is why a design should be created in vector format for the best quality results.
