Custom T-Shirt Design & Art Guidelines

The most important part of the entire print process is having the proper artwork to work with. No matter which method of printing you choose, it all starts on the computer with clean artwork. Below you’ll find the guidelines and requirements for all your custom shirt and apparel art files.

Good Artwork=Good Shirts

Screen Printing

Screen printing is a spot color process. Each color in a design is individually printed one at a time through it’s own stencil (the screen). All the custom t-shirt designs and other apparel designs for a screen printer must be separated by color ensure your graphic prints correctly. For optimal results we require Vectored artwork separated by color for your custom t-shirt design or other screen printed items.
