Artwork and digitised samples
In order for your logo or design to be embroidered it will have to be digitised. This essentially involves converting your image into a digital version so that it can be read by an embroidery machine.
Once you have submitted your design we'll produce a digitised version of your artwork and send it via email for your approval before stitching actually begins. This provides you with an opportunity to review the layout of your design and the size it will be embroidered. Please note that these samples are used for illustration purposes and only provide a representation of the finished garment.
For us to achieve the best possible results we require your artwork to be prepared in a suitable high resolution format. We accept artwork via email or on disc in the following formats: Adobe Illustrator file, EPS, PDF, TIFF, PSD or JPEG at 300dpi with all fonts outlined. These are the preferred formats so if artwork is provided correctly no artwork charges apply.
If you have business cards or letterheads produced for your company the chances are your printers will have the logo in this format. Artwork saved as a Microsoft Word document or as a PowerPoint presentation or even supplied on paper will have to be re-drawn so artwork charges may apply.
Thread colours & Pantone matching
If you have a specific colours in mind or need to match the colours in your corporate identity please provide Pantone reference numbers so we can match the Madeira thread colour as close as possible. We use the Pantone Solid Coated Guide for colour matching.
