Supported file formats (in order of preference):

  • Corel Draw – .CDR files 
    (versions 3 through 11)

*Must be saved ad a legacy .AI file.

  • Adobe Illustrator – .AI or .EPS 
      (versions 3 through CS5)
    “Create outlines” on all fonts.

All eps files need to be saved as “vector” or “editable” .eps formats from vector drawing programs; not to be confused with a “raster”.

Two types of artwork exist in the computer world, vector, and bitmap images. The vector form of digital artwork ensures the cleanest and most trouble-free transfer of your design to be screen printed. Computer applications such as Adobe Illustrator and Corel Draw are meant for the vector format. However, simply putting a photo into one of these programs does not mean it is a vector. 


We accept the vector drawing program file formats and their vector .eps created files. Vector EPS files are the standard, however, we can accept photo programs Black & White Bitmap raster image type files:

  • .EPS
  • .TIFF
  • .BMP
  • .JPEG


  • Color bitmaps. These are raster images – (RGB or CYMK are not accepted).
  • Website .jpg graphicsthese are only 72 dpi., these are low resolution pixelated bitmaps
  • Graphics with fonts that are not created / saves as curves / paths / outlines.
