Best Image Upload Practices

Design Resolution:

  • Minimum Resolution: Ensure a crisp design by maintaining a minimum resolution of 300 DPI.
  • Preferred Resolution: Optimal results are achieved with a resolution of 600 DPI or higher.
  • Vector Graphics: If possible, use vector graphics (.ai, .eps, .svg) for scalability without loss of quality.

File Format:

  1. Preferred Formats: We accept various formats but prefer vector formats for versatility.
  2. Raster Formats: If using raster images, submit high-quality files like .psd, high-res .jpg/.tiff, or PNG with a transparent background.
  3. Color Mode: Designs should be in CMYK to match colors accurately in the final embroidered patch.

Background and Transparency:

  1. Background: Use file formats that support transparency (e.g., PNG) for designs without a standard shape.
  2. Avoid Compression: Refrain from heavy compression to prevent loss of detail in the design.

Naming and Size:

  1. Naming Conventions: Use clear and descriptive file names for easy identification.
  2. Size Guidelines: Follow recommended size guidelines based on patch dimensions.
