Artwork Instructions & FAQ
If you have any questions about the information above or below, send us an email or give us a call. We'll be happy to explain in further detail or give you a helping hand. Also feel free to stop by our shop in Plainville Connecticut to discuss!
2) Make Sure Your Artwork is 300 DPI
Dots per inch, or DPI, is the number of holes per inch an area, such as a screen, contains. It works in a similar way to a TV or computer monitor, the higher the number of holes, the greater and more high quality the image can be displayed. While with screen printing one can get by with less dots per inch since most silk screens are less than 300 DPI, we suggest that when you set up your designs in Photoshop, use 300 DPI resolution.
3) Keep Your Design To 6 Colors or Less.
When designing artwork for screen printing, we recommend looking at some old band t-shirt, stickers, or other similar screen printed items. Notice that the design only uses a few colors, often between 1 and 6. Notice how some designs actually use the color of the shirt as an additional color.
4) Color Separate Your Artwork
Now that your artwork is 300 DPI and limited to 6 colors you need to make sure each color you wish to print is on it's own Photoshop layer. The process of doing this is called color separation. When color separating, be sure to make sure that the background color (i.e. the color of the shirt) is on it's own, separate layer as well. While this seems simple, be careful to make sure that any strokes or other Photoshop effects you are using are broken out from the inside color. For example, if you used a black stroke around green lettering, you need to make sure the black stroke is on a separate layer from the green. Remember, our designers are always ready to help with any color separation issues you may encounter so just let us know if you have any problems.
5) Sizing Your Artwork
All artwork should be sized exactly to the dimensions you want to print. For example: If you were designing a text chest print, you would want your artwork to generally be 10 inches long by 3 inches wide at 300 DPI resolution.
6) Saving and Submitting Your Artwork
We prefer all artwork to be in Adobe Illustrator or Adobe Photoshop formats. We also accept PDFs and EPSs as well. If it is a large file (10Megs or more) you can zip it using Winzip or Winrar and submit it that format as well. When you are ready to submit your artwork you can send it over using our contact form.
