When you are preparing an order for us we may ask you for a copy of your logo or artwork ready for application on your garment or merchandise. Below is a guideline to the types of artwork files we may need you to supply. If you cannot source a high resolution artwork file, Nelson Teamwear has an artwork redrawing service. Contact us to find out more.
Below are the types of artwork files we accept, what they are suitable for and the minimum resolution requirements.
Best for: Our preferred file type for all applications! This file type is required for all screen printing and sublimation.
Resolution: Unrestricted – Spots and Ai files provide us with scalable graphics that can be as small as an embroidered logo or as large as a whole garment without losing any quality.
Vector Spots or Ai is the best file type to supply as it has no resolution restrictions and can be used for any application from sumblimation and screen printing to embroidery and thermo. When supplying the Spots it must be in vector format as JPEGs or PNGs that have been converted to Spots or Ai will still be flat files with restricted resolution.
Our Spots specialists can assist you in getting any image or graphic printed onto your chosen garment, with no colour limitations. Direct to Garment is a method used to disperse coloured ink onto a chosen garment to produce any chosen image. The method works by first pretreating the garment, printing the graphic onto the garment and then applying pressure and heat to secure the design. Essentially, you can think of the Spots as a big digital printer! Spots is a low-cost option ideal for event or business t-shirts and hoodies. Contact us to find out more.
