Vector art files are based on mathematical coordinates and use equations to save artwork. Closer to blueprints than photographs, vector images can be resized mathematically allowing for easy scalability without loss of quality. For instance, a logo created in a vector format may be used equally well for a 50' banner as it would a 2" letterhead.
As opposed to vector file formats, raster images are saved as individual pixels of color laid out on a grid. As they are based on precise placement of individual bits of color, raster images may not be resized easily without sacrificing image quality.

Used primarily for the web, it can be nearly impossible to use a JPEG or GIF file in screen printing. While they may be suitable for a computer monitor, they will appear blurry, jagged-edged, or washed out when applied to apparel.
Instead, if a JPEG or GIF file is all that is available, our artists will use it as a reference only, redrawing and recreating the artwork in a format that may be used in the screen printing process.
Spot color is the standard process used throughout the printing industry and involves an assigned numbering system for pre-assigned color shades. Process color, on the other hand, uses a blending process of 4 primary ink colors (cyan, magenta, yellow, and black – known as CMYK) in order to create any color needed.
In both process an underlay base may be used when we print on a dark colored garment (such as black or navy). This gives us a bright base to print on, allowing your printed colors to appear brighter and more vibrant.
