Artwork Guidelines

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

For bitmap images, a resolution of 300 dpi or better is recommended at the size you would like printed.

Send us the best artwork that you have.

1. Size: Maximum is 11.5″ x 18″. 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: 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 .01″ 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.

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.
Cover transfer with the provided cover sheet to eliminate static.
Press for 12-15 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.
