Vector art should have assigned coated Pantone values and be designed within a CMYK colour space (U.S. Web Coated SWAP V2), this will assist with the predictability of the results.
For optimal printing results we recommend creating art at 100ppi, 100% of actual size.
- Linked and embedded files must be included with your composite file.
- Convert all text to paths in Vector art.
- Use coated Pantone values, this will ensure more accurate colour reproduction.
- Pantone colours should not be blended with process colour.
- For Appliqué use vector art only.
- Special effects such as drop shadows, overprinting or transparencies should not be used, as they could have an unexpected outcome.
