“Print ready” refers to the most ideal file format that is great to use across all printing methods such as heat press printing or silkscreen printing. “Print ready” refers to the file being a “Vector” file, which means that the artwork can be scaled up or down without becoming pixelated.
With the “Vector file”, plotting machines will the a defined cutting path to produce the artwork in form that is ready to be transferred onto the t shirts or branded apparel such as adidas polo tee or Under Armour polo tees.
If you do not have a “Vector file” for your artwork, our in-house designers will be able to trace or recreate your artwork in a “Vector file” that is print ready. A design fee might be charged for it.
