We recommend you create your artwork in Adobe InDesign or Adobe Illustrator and supply your file as a print-ready PDF, saved under PDF profile PDF/X-1a:2001. Please submit your files as 1 layer without transparencies.
Due to the screen printing process we use, colours should be used from the Pantone® Coated Library only. We cannot accept CMYK, RGB or unnamed spots.
Promotional T-shirts are printed single or double sided using up to four Spot or PMS colours. Please choose how many colours you would like to use. You can select up to 4 different Pantone® (spot) colours to be printed on to your t-shirt:
1/0 Pantone® (spot colour), 2/0 Pantone® (spot colours), 3/0 Pantone® (spot colours) and 4/0 Pantone® (spot colours).
You can include a maximum of 4 Pantone® (spot) colours in your design, as 100% colours. Please note, gradients and percentages of a colour cannot be reproduced using this print process.
To print in black or white, please use the colours Pantone Black C and Pantone White. For white t-shirts, please do not represent white as a solid colour on your artwork. Please also do not represent the colour of your t-shirt in your artwork file, for example do not provide a black background on your artwork for a black t shirt.
- Please ensure colours do not overlap in your design.
- Outline or embed fonts.
- Please ensure the design is fully vectorised and does not use bitmap images.
- Submit your files without cut marks or printer marks.
For optimal printing, we recommend lines should be at least 1.5pt and text should be at least size 14pt. For light and decorative lettering, we recommend a font size of at least 28pt.
