No matter which garment decorating procedure you choose, screen-printing, or heat transfer, they both need artwork.
Artwork can be provided in one of the following formats:
1. Computer files, ideally Adobe Illustrator file (.AI, .EPS or .PDF). Alternatively
- .jpg, .gif or .psd at 300dpi, at actual print size, accompanied by
details of the exact print size(s) required, image placement instructions
and samples or descriptions of the print colours required.
2. Acetate (colour-separated if necessary).
For colour prints, please specify Pantone numbers where possible. If no Pantone number is given, please provide a colour proof; if no precise colour information is given, we will work from your written or verbal instructions but can accept no responsibility if the resulting colour(s) is not what you expected.
Please remember that printing onto garments is not the same as printing onto paper, and exact colour-matching is not a straightforward process: we mix inks specifically for each job and will do our very best to get as close as possible to your specified requirements, but it’s always possible that there may be very slight differences between a colour mixed to a Pantone reference and the same colour printed on a shirt.
Where there is more than one obvious method of printing a particular design, we will discuss this with you; please be aware that reducing the number of screens for a colour or half-tone image will reduce costs, but may also have an effect on the appearance of the image.
It is the customer’s responsibility to ensure all aspects of the following are correct before production commences: 1. Any artwork is to your satisfaction and design 2. Any names that are to be printed must be put in writing by the customer and that they are correctly spelt. 3. It is taken as implicit in the acceptance of all printing, embroidery and any form of personalisation that the customer is either the copyright holder or an authorised user licensed by the copyright holder and that the customer will indemnify MAD Print Ltd in full against any claims for infringement that may arise.
