What is Camera Ready Art?

Don’t worry. Not everyone knows.

Camera-ready artwork is artwork that's ready for the camera that captures the dots and density of your artwork and then translates it into a silk screen.

No matter what color you'd like your imprint to be, the type, artwork and graphic materials should be a very high black-and-white (B&W) contrast ready to be printed on velum paper. Specific instructions should accompany the artwork. Photos & images are submitted separately.

How to Supply Your Design.

We prefer digital files sent via email or file transfer.

We always prefer a digital file in .EPS or .AI format. Of coarse, we accept other formats, but translating them might take time (and cost you money). Ask us about this when placing an order.

If you are supplying your artwork on paper, you'll want to follow these guidelines to ensure your imprint looks as clear and crisp as possible:

Be sure the images are in black on a clean white background. If you are combining type and graphics, and they've been printed out separately, be sure that every image is placed where you like it within the confines of the shirt’s imprint area and note each element’s position on a separate instruction sheet.

If you are supplying computer-generated art, all type or artwork should be output to a laser printer with at least 1,000 DPI (dots per inch). Although most typical office laser printers produce 300 dots per inch, which is fine for most other applications, it is not high enough resolution for camera-ready artwork. Be sure you've marked it for color either on a photocopy of the original or on the original itself in non-reproducible pen/pencil. If artwork contains complicated separations of colors, you'll need to supply a separate piece of art for each color. Many computer software graphics packages today offer this ability.
