Art file preparation for the best screen printing results.

Our color separation service is complimentary when you supply artwork that meets our high-resolution criteria of 300 dpi (dots per inch). Internet-sourced images typically have a lower resolution of 72 dpi and will often require redesigning unless a low-resolution bitmap look is your goal. Artwork below 300 dpi may lead to blurriness or pixelation.

Should your artwork need redesigning, we will inform you beforehand and provide an estimate for the required design services. Our standard rate is $45 per hour, but we are willing to work within your budget constraints.

For optimal printing results, we ask that you submit your artwork in preferred vector file formats such as .pdf, .eps, .svg, or .ai. High-resolution raster images (.psd, .tiff, .jpg, or .png) are also acceptable if they meet the 300 dpi requirement and are sized to your final print dimensions. Please ensure all text within the files is outlined.

The quality of your custom print is directly related to the quality of your art files. SMPLFD Printing will not assume liability for customization issues that stem from substandard artwork, including any misspellings or errors contained within the artwork you provide.
