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 spot colours.
Long Sleeve T-shirts are printed one-sided using up to four Spot or PMS colours. Please choose how many colours you would like to use:
1/0 Pantone® (spot colour), 2/0 Pantones® (spot colours), 3/0 Pantones® (spot colours) and 4/0 Pantones® (spot colours).
These Pantone® colours should be 100% colours as 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. However if you are printing in white ink, please represent the colour of your t-shirt in your artwork file, for example please 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.
