Artwork Guidelines

Screen printed transfers require vector artwork.

You can send us vector artwork and we can print it as is or with adjustments.

You can send us bitmap (raster) artwork that we will redraw/convert to vector.

Send us the best artwork that you have.

1. Size: Maximum is 11.5″ x 14″. Although not required, it is a good idea to send us your file at the size you want it printed.

2. Text: Convert all text to curves/outlines before sending.

3. Colors: We use spot colors for screen printing. You can use spot colors when creating art, but it is not required. Use consistent colors in your file.

4. Line Thickness: minimum of .025″ for printed areas.

5. Show-Thru Thickness: minimum of .04″ for non-printing areas

6. Special effects: Some special effects such as fades and shading can’t be produced with screen printing. Consider digital transfers if your art contains these.

Tips / Application

Pre-Production

Please check transfers carefully before heat-applying.

Set Temperature

Set the press to 365°F

Pre-Heat Garment

First, place the garment on platen, heat press for 3-5 seconds or until there is no more steam to remove wrinkles and moisture. Ensure there are no obstructions such as buttons, pockets, or seams. If there are, raise only the print area with a Print Perfect Pad.

Position & Press

Place the transfer face down on the garment. Close the heat press and heat for 15 seconds.

Peel Cold

Open the press and remove the shirt. Allow to cool completely to the touch. (This may take several minutes to cool completely.)
Peel the carrier in a smooth, even motion.


Note: The recommended time, temperature, and pressure settings are for Stahls' Hotronix® heat press machines. Settings on other heat presses may vary.
