We understand that ordering online can sometimes be a little daunting. Especially when you can’t see a finished product before you purchase.
Our aim is to take all the risk off you and onto ourselves so we can make it an easy decision for you to use us for your t-shirt printing.
This is our rock solid guarantee…
“If we supply you work that is anything other than the proof you approve then we will replace it at our own expense”
So let us take all the risk to show you how easy it is to do business with us.
What does “convert fonts to outlines” or “embed fonts” mean?
Fonts aren’t automatically transferred with a vector file when it is created in a program like Adobe Illustrator. When using fonts in the program, the text is linked to a font file located on your computer. If that text is not converted to shapes or outlines or “embedded”, in the program, when you send that file to us if we don’t have the font installed on our computer the font you have used will be substituted for a different font that is installed on our system.
To get around this you need to convert fonts to outlines or embed the fonts. To do this in Adobe Illustrator you can right click on the text and choose “Create Outlines” alternatively if you go to Type>Create Outlines or finally you can use the hotkeys Shift+Ctrl+O. This will convert all you type to shapes and it will transport within your file.
Why do you require vector images?
Vector images are made out of lines and shapes. This helps us when we need to separate colours. Each shape that has the same colour is separated from the image. This can’t effectively be done with a bitmap image when printing with spot colours.
One time when it is ok to use bitmap images is when you want a full colour print using process CMYK colours. Sometimes bitmap images are ok for single colour prints as long as they are at least 300dpi and already at print size.
