Your artwork is the most important part of screen printing process. The GIGO principle (Garbage In/Garbage Out) is number one. If you provide small, low-resolution, fuzzy or blurry artwork that is what the final product will look like. We can work with a large variety of files, but we can produce the best results with vector art and hi-resolution graphics.
