It is important that your files will be saved as “Vector” files, such as EPS (Adobe Illustrator, EPS, Vectors). Text need to be converted to “vectors”. 

What are “vectors”?

Within the industry of digital graphics, there are two general types of files: vector and raster files. Raster graphics, which are built on a grid of pixels, often become lose quality when resized. The vector format offers better scalability and is therefore generally preferred. JPEG and GIF are examples of raster files, while EPS is a type of vector.

We also want to note that the smallest printing size is 6-8 pt. For embroidered orders, the fonts may not be serif and need to be at least 1/4 high.

In case you do not indicate any font, colour and/or size, we will make a graphical optimal choice out of the standard fonts and colours.
