Artwork Requiremets

Our goal at Phoenix Embroidery is to create a high quality, crisp reproduction of your artwork. To meet this goal we require your artwork in a format that is suitable for the application.

Artwork is to be supplied by the customer, the best type of artwork to send us is an editable vector file (such as EPS, Corel Draw or PDF) with all text “converted to curves”. Whilst we can sometimes work with other types of files, vector artwork will give the best result.

Artwork is preferred in vector based images (drawings) as opposed to raster based (bitmaps/jpeg’s) images. While the shape and colour of a bitmap image appears smooth from a distance, when viewed up close you can see the tiny individual squares and dots (pixels) that make up the image. Vector drawings are made up of objects, consisting of smooth lines and continuous colours, and are resolution independent. When viewed up close or from a distance, vector drawings appear as smooth clean lines and edges.

For certain applications high resolution raster files are acceptable such as High Resolution JPG, PSD, TIF and GIF. Please contact our art department for more information.

Please ensure that all bitmap files are a minimum of 300dpi. Please note that other than images purchased from an online clipart supplier, images downloaded from the internet will not be accepted as they are of much lower quality.

Logos and graphics must also be legally owned or authorised by the owner.
