Art Specification

For good printing/embroidery results we need good art to start with!

All screen print artwork will be converted to Pantone Solid spot colours. In all cases, the closest CMYK colour match possible will be used, but we prefer our clients to give us the Pantone colour if possible. The maximum size for your screen print is 29cm in width and 40cm in height and the maximum colours for every design is 7

We use generic size settings for various print positions, a list of these sizes are outlined below, the following considerations should be noted when printing/embroidering various goods. If printing/embroidering goods and sizes range from small to extra large  using a standard chest size print ,the print/embroidery may appear very large on a small garment and on an extra large slightly small. If printing/embroidering on the back of hooded sweatshirts, the hood on the garment may obscure a back print.
