What format does artwork need to be in for screen printing?

The Requirements

When screen printing, for the best and most accurate print results we advise providing artwork in vector format. The accepted vector file format includes, .ai & .eps files, we also accept vector PDF files. In some circumstances we are able to print from .PSD files, of 300dpi or more.

Why is this necessary?

This is partly a result of the screen printing process, as we need high quality artwork in order to create the screens we use for your prints. This also ensures the highest quality, as there is no situation in which we would like to be producing poor quality prints.

How do I get my files in this format?

When designing for print, especially with simple designs we always recommend designing within Adobe Illustrator. In using Illustrator you can produce vector graphics that we can easily print using a variety of print methods, screen printing included.

If you are not the designer yourself, simply ask your designer or design agency for the vector artwork files. They will be more than happy to send these over to you.
