At Embroidery Central, our expert production team work with customers every day to ensure their artwork looks as good as possible when printed or embroidered on a garment. Below are a few key points regarding artwork to help you when placing your order.
Maximum sizes we can print and embroider
The maximum width for print is 30cm. For embroidery the maximum width we can produce is 25cm. The height of your logo or image will automatically be scaled based on the width you select.
Positions we can print and embroider
We can print and embroider designs in a wide range of positions; the positions available depends on the garments you select. Typical positions include left or right chest, full width across the front chest, left or right sleeve, full width across the top of the back and so on. If the positions available aren’t quite right for your needs, we can still help you. Just contact our expert team before placing your order for help.
File types we accept
You can upload your image or logo file online with our easy to use ordering process. We accept the following image types: jpg, jpeg, gif, bmp, ai, eps, ps,png, psd, svg, tiff, tif. The maximum size file you can upload per logo is 50mb.
Customers often get concerned about logo transparency, but there is really no need to be! Our expert production team is well used to removing the background from artwork files before production and by default this is what they 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. Many file formats support transparency such as png, eps and svg.
In general, you should try and upload the best quality version of your logo or image you have to ensure the best end results. 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, our team will contact you to discuss how best to proceed. Many other sites would simply produce your garments with a logo that looks terrible, but at Embroidery Central we check every order to ensure it will look as good as possible.
Printing and embroidery limitations
There may be certain limitations depending on the customisation type you select. In particular, certain designs cannot be embroidered, such as those with colour gradients or very intricate designs. However, unlike other sites which simply would refuse your order, our expert team will work with you once your order is placed to adjust your design so it can be produced as a good quality embroidery.
