An AI vector file type created by Adobe that can only be created or edited with Adobe Illustrator. A vector's main advantage over raster is its infinite scalability, there is no quality lost as well as being easily editable specifically colors. Raster images use many colored pixels or individual building blocks to form a complete image.Because raster images are constructed using a fixed number of colored pixels, they can’t be dramatically resized without compromising their resolution. When stretched to fit a space they weren’t designed to fill, their pixels become visibly grainy and the image distorts. This will result in a pixelated print. Recommended image size 4500x4500 at 300dpi
RGB vs. CMYK
CMYK (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Key/Black) is the color space for printed materials. Simply put, CMYK is the color mode intended for printing with ink, such as business card designs. RGB is the color mode intended for screen displays. When designing, the biggest mistake you could make is forgetting to convert to the appropriate color mode for your project. If you forget to do this, colors could appear washed out or too vibrant.
Production takes 22-44 business days due to all the products and services we offer. Since all orders are custom made, depending on the items purchased and the quantity of products purchased, production time frames can vary. Delays can occur due to high volume orders, as well as due to holiday surplus shopping or if certain products/sizes are out of stock. All delays that heavily impact production times will be communicated.
We order blanks for all non-sublimated products every Monday as we do not hold inventory. So all orders placed later in the week will enter production the following Tuesday-Wednesday.
For all domestic shipping, shipping times can take 3-5 business days; And for international orders, it could take 7-10 business days through the USPS shipping method. If any customers select DHL it could take 3-5 business days for international shipping. We are based in the United States and when we ship internationally, your customers will be responsible for paying any duties and taxes to have it cleared through international customs so they can receive their package. *Note: If they refuse to pay the taxes/fees from their country, the shipping company will return it back to us.
When your customers are selecting their sizes on our website please make sure to inform them that they need to look at our size charts due to the fact that our size charts for our sublimated products are all custom. Whereas for general apparel there are set size charts for selected brands we print on such as (Next Level, Gildan, Champion, & etc).
