Artwork Guidelines

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

Artwork will print as it is provided. We will not edit artwork in any way unless it is requested or if the design requires artist attention. When artist help is requested or required, a digital art proof will be provided for $26. Production turnaround will begin upon proof approval.

For raster images, a minimum resolution of 150 dpi is required at the size you would like printed. For best results, we recommend a dpi of 300 or better.

Send us the best artwork that you have.


1. Size: Maximum size is 22″ x 22″.

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

3. Colors: Full color, digitally printed in CMYK. Specify if white areas in your image print white or are show-thru (garment color). CMYK does not reproduce fluorescent or metallic colors.

4. Line Thickness: minimum of .018″ for printed areas.

5. Show-Thru Thickness: no limit for non-printing areas

6. Special effects: Digital transfers are printed in full color and may contain special effects, fades, shadows, shading, and photographic images within the artwork. However, soft edges that fade to no ink are not able to be printed.

Tips / Application

Pre-Production

Please check transfers carefully before heat-applying.

Set Temperature

Set the press to 290°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 on the garment so that the ink side is facing down. Close the heat press and apply for 12-15 seconds.

Peel Hot

Open the press and 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.
