How to Supply Artwork

When supplying artwork for vinyl print and embroidery, it is important to follow our specific guidelines to ensure the best results. Here's a comprehensive guide on how to prepare and supply artwork for these two types of printing:

File Formats:

  • For vinyl print, vector files are required for sharp and clean lines. Popular formats include AI or EPS.
  • For embroidery, we require a PDF or JPEG file.


  • Make sure your artwork is in high resolution (at least 300 DPI) to ensure clarity and quality.
  • For embroidery, the resolution is less crucial as embroidery machines work based on stitch counts rather than resolution.


  • Use the CMYK colour mode for vinyl print to ensure accurate colour matching.
  • Embroidery uses thread colours, which may not precisely match digital colours. Provide Pantone (PMS) colour codes for best colour accuracy.


  • Simplify your design for vinyl printing to ensure clarity and legibility, especially for small prints.
  • Embroidery requires simplified designs with clear outlines, as intricate details may not translate well into stitches.


  • Provide your artwork in the actual size you want it to be printed or embroidered.
  • Consider the placement and size constraints for both vinyl print and embroidery when determining the artwork size.

Check your proof:

  • Always ensure you check your print ready proof as once you sign off that you are happy to proceed, any mistakes with spellings/colours are unchangeable.

Guidelines and Restrictions:

  • Be open to feedback and suggestions from our professional artwork team. They are here to help you optimize your design for the best results.

By following these guidelines and considerations, you can supply artwork for vinyl print and embroidery in a way that ensures high-quality outcomes that meet your expectations and requirements.
