Can I Have The Same Thing Printed On Different Types of Fabrics?

Can We Print Over Seams and Zippers?

Printing over collar seams and zippers does give the garment a unique and custom look.  This form of printing allows you to have more coverage over a full zip hoodie and utilize larger artwork going over the collar.  However, there are physical characteristics you should be aware of and understand.  Printing over anything that is not flat will result in “build up” of ink.  At times the ink will clump over the seams resulting in a not so clean look.

Can I Add More Garments To My Order After Approval ?

Sadly this is not just a yes or no answer. Depending on when the order was approved and what you are adding to your order, normally the answer is yes. If this is a rush order, please contact your sales representative ASAP. We will do our best to add the need garments and fulfill your order.

What Is A Screen Charge?

Screen charges are per location and color. Meaning if you have a 2 color imprint on the front and 1 color imprint on the back, there is a total of 3 screens. Each screen must first be coated to accept an image.  The image must be then output at size on a separate piece of film for each color and burned onto the screen with a high intensity arc light.  The coating is then washed out of the image area on the screen so ink can pressed through it with a squeegee.  After the job the screen must then be cleaned and reclaimed for reuse on another job.  

What Is Vector Artwork?

Vector Artwork has a complicated definition but in a nut shell, vector graphics are comprised of paths, which are defined by a start and end point, along with other points, curves, and angles along the way. This allows you to increase or decrease the size of the graphic without compromising the integrity of the original image. Vector Artwork is produced in Adobe Illustrator or in Freehand or CorelDRAW.

Why is Vector Artwork Best For Promotional Products And Apparel?

Vector Artwork allows you to increase or decrease the size of the graphic without compromising the integrity of the original image.vIf you try to scale or enlarge the size of a non-vector format like a JPEG, PNG, GIF, then the image will become pixelated and have jagged edges when printed. Vector Artwork gives your logo the opportunity to be displayed at its best quality. 

Why Should My Image Be High Resolution?

Images intended for print must have a resolution of 300 DPI. For instance, images used for web only are 72 DPI. Units of measurement such as dots per inch (DPI) refer to the number of pixels in one inch of the image. Resizing a low DPI image pulled from the web to fit the dimensions of your print project will not turn out as you want. The low resolution image will become pixilated when printed.  

Should I Use RGB Or CMYK?

For all print material you should always start and finish your designs in CMYK color mode.
