Artwork

What artwork formats do you accept?
Before we start printing or embroidery, we always need your artwork in a print ready format.

Depending on which customization method we use we need the artwork in one of the following formats:

Vector Format for screen printing, embroidery or transfer printing:
- Adobe Illustrator, EPS or PDF files
- All fonts and strokes should be created to outlines

High res PNG files for DTG printing:
- PNG files saved with a transparent background
- Must be saved to at least 150 dpi and at least 100% of intended print size

If you're not sure or unable to supply any of these artwork files, please just upload whatever you have and we can recommend any changes if necessary.
Do you offer an artwork service?
If you need your artwork converting into a print ready format we can help with this. Just upload the files you have so we can check.

Most of the time converting artwork formats is free of charge however If it's a complex design, there is an artwork charge which is usually £14.95.

General

Do you have a minimum order?
We have a minimum order of 20 items per design. The 20 items can consist of a variety of garment types, sizes and colour, however they must be personalized with the same design.
Can I have a mixture of garment colours and sizes?
Yes, you can mix the garment sizes and colours at no extra cost, although it's usually cheaper to print onto white t-shirts or clothing.
Do you offer poly bagging?
Yes, we can individually polybag each item. It costs £0.25 + VAT per item
Do you offer tag-less t-shirts without labels?
Most items come with the garment brand stitched in but we can remove this and replace with your own label for £0.60 + VAT per item. Bear in mind that if the tag is taken out the size label may not show.
Can you print or embroider over zips?
No, it’s not possible to print over zips
Are you able to attached badges to garments?
We can embroider your logo onto garments but we can't attach badges that you provide
Can you print onto sleeves?
Yes, we can use screen printing, transfer printing or digital printing onto sleeves. The maximum print width is 80mm.
How much do your screens cost?
Our screens are £25.00 each but the price we quote you is inclusive of all set up and screen costs.
What’s the smallest transfer printing text you can print?
Any text less than 6-7mm that needs transfer printing will be difficult to weed out.
How close to the edge of the t-shirts can you print?
We can usually print up to 0.5cm of the edges of the t-shirts and up to 0.5cm from the bottom seam.
Can you print over seams?
No, we’re unable to print over seams
Can you print up to the shoulders on the front?
No, the highest we can print of the front is up to the bottom of the collar on t-shirts.
Can you screen print using water-based inks, not plastisol?
We can use waterbased ink for white & very light garments or discharge ink for darker garments. Discharge has a surcharge of £15 per colour. Please contact us to confirm costs.
What's your maximum print area?
- Screen Printing: W355 x H455mm
- DTG Printing: W355 x H455mm
- Transfer Printing: As above
If screen printing, can I change the colour of the print on some t-shirts?
Yes, as long as the design remains the same we can change the print colour. There is an additional colour change fee of £15.00 + VAT.
What type of garments would generally not be suitable for DTG printing?
Generally items with a wide weave pattern or non-flat surface are not so good (i.e. pique polo shirts and fleeces). Also, garments with low cotton content do not generally print well – polyester garments often cause issues.
Can you match PANTONE refs with all printing methods?
We can match PANTONE reference numbers when screen printing but we're not able to match exact colours when DTG printing.
When screen printing can you use the same screens for tote bags and t-shirts?
No, we cant use the same screen's for printing onto tote bags and t-shirts as the print would be upside down (the opening is on the top of a bag and bottom of a t-shirt).
How much does your embroidery digitisation cost?
Our digitisation fee is £25.00 but the price provided is inclusive of all set up and screen costs.
What is the smallest possible embroidery size?
The smallest text that can be embroidered is approx 5mm high, the small text would need to be above this size.
Can you change the colour of the embroidery thread on different garments if the design remains the same?
Yes, at no extra cost.
Can you embroider individual people’s names onto left chest?
Yes @ £4.50 each + vat. We use only certain fonts like Arial Black as detailed fonts tend to be harder for the embroidery machinery to handle. Contact us for a bespoke quote.
Can you digitally print onto coloured garments?
Yes, our direct-to-garment printer can print onto both white and coloured garments. Onto colours the printer lays down a white layer if ink to provide a base before the colours are printed.

Please note: If your artwork has dark colours and we're digitally printing onto dark coloured garments this may produce a slightly ‘grainy’ effect.

You might also see a feint white line around the print - this again is the white base layer. We’ll take a look at your artwork and if necessary will print a sample for you to approve.

Direct to Garment Printing is applied manually so allow for some slight variation in exact positional location (5-10mm).
Can you match PANTONE reference numbers?
We can match PANTONE reference numbers when screen printing.

We're unable to match PANTONE colours when direct-to-garment printing as it works much like your desktop printer. Therefore on occassions there can be a slight difference from the colours in the original artwork and on screen to the final print.
