All files must be 300 DPI or vector format. The design should be sized to the size you would like it to print.
Text must be converted to outlines.
Printing can only be as good as the artwork. Anchorfish will not be responsible for poor quality printing due to poor artwork. Anchorfish is not responsible for any misspellings, errors, or issues in your art file. We do our best to catch these errors and point them out to you, but we may not catch them all. If it is in your art file and on your approval, that is how we will print it.
Please allow us to halftone the images for you. If we do not control the halftones, we cannot guarantee the quality of the print.
We accept the following File Types for Screen Printing:
We prefer .AI or .EPS files first because Vector images can be scaled without affecting quality. We prefer .PSD or .PDF second & .JPG or .TIFF last.
Your screen print logo or design should be sized to the size it should be printed. If you want your print to be 10″ wide, please be sure the actual design within the file is 10″ wide, not just the background of your design file.
We will provide free pantone color matching for your garments when your orders are submitted. However, there is an issue with pantone matching, and that is that not every color looks the same on every monitor. A certain red on your screen may appear to be a different red on ours. There is no universal color calibration for computers.
It is always best to try to supply your own pantone colors if possible. The best way to do this, and the most accurate way, is to purchase a Pantone Plus Series Solid Coated Formula Guide. This can be purchased as part of the set (Coated and Uncoated) through Amazon. The reason why it’s best to buy the book, once again, is the pantone guide on your version of photoshop is still using your color calibration, and will not necessarily be accurate.
All artwork is to be approved via a digital mock-up through email or quotes.
Artwork must be checked for spelling, color, sizes ordered, placement of the art and accuracy of artwork by the customer.
It is very important to look over every detail of the mockup, as this is how your garments will print. Anchorfish will not accept responsibility for corrections not implemented and/or requested after artwork approval.
Any modifications requested after customer approval will result in production delays and could require additional expenses. Any delays in the approval process longer than 24 hours after receipt of the mockup could result in production delays.
