Artwork Guidelines

Image transparency

Don’t get concerned about logo transparency, Our expert team is used to removing the background from artwork files before production and by default this is what we will do. If certain areas of your design should be transparent, the easiest way to avoid any confusion is to upload your image with transparent sections and detail any requirements in the additional information boxes when you order. Many file formats support transparency such as png, eps and svg.

Artwork quality

Its always best to provide the best quality image of your logo as this will return the best results and not delay the order process. We generally ask for files to be 300 DPI or higher. If you upload a file that is too low quality to print or embroider, we will contact you to discuss how best to proceed.

Printing and embroidery limitations

There may be certain limitations in all manufacturing processes, and this is dependent on the customisation type you select. Certain designs cannot be embroidered, such as those with colour gradients or very intricate designs. We will contact you to discuss options and support you in getting the best results.
