Here are some useful artwork design tips for you to use. This will enable us to produce the best quality print we can, ensuring great end results for your merchandise.
We can accept artwork in almost any format, but please ensure that it is a minimum of 300 dpi. We are happy to work with files smaller than this; however the print quality may be significantly reduced. If you are in any doubt, please contact us and we will be happy to assist you. Please note the quality of the image sent will have an effect on the quality of the final print. We print using CYMK printers artwork submitted using a RGB profile may have a colour variation on conversion to CYMK. You can download our available design templates here
Please include an extra 8mm bleed on the edge of your artwork. This will allow your design to continue around the edge of the badge. This is particularly important if the background is an image or a pattern, however if it is a plain block colour, we can add this for you.
We have vast selection of fonts available, but we don't have them all. If submitting AI, PDF or PSD files, please ensure all text is outlined or converted to an image. This will enable us to use the required font as set out in your design. JPEG, GIF or BITMAP files the text is already flattened to the image so no outline is required.
