Copperhead Screen Printing
This is pretty simple........well sort of
To Achieve the best result we need good artwork.
We have a saying here
"you can rub and rub and rub but you can't shine a turd ! (c/o the book "Christine" by Stephen King)
So what do we need ?
Generally we require VECTOR art. These files generally are quite small and easy to email.
examples of vector art we accept are
illustrator Files .ai
illustrator EPS ( as oppsoed to photoshop eps ) .eps
Corel Draw .cdr
What is VECTOR art ? here is a link..... Vector
if all this sounds foriegn..... then......
If you have had business cards done you may have a PDF proof sent by the printer..... this could be what we need .
This enables us to seperate the colours and create bleeds and chokes
All art must have the fonts converted to paths
As a rule No Raster Images i.e BMP, TIFF, GIF,
and Word files are not really welcome
But, we undersand that this is not always possible and will try to work with what you supply, best bet is to email us what you have and we will have a look and advise you
This is the exception to the rule
Photoshop files are perfect
image to the printing size
prefereably 300 pixels per inch, but 200 is still acceptable
Genarally on a white background, but if it is to go onto black or coloured shirts
a copy of the file with a black background as well
