Artwork Requirements For Tea Towel Printing

Your artwork is the most important part of printing a tea towel. If the design is low in quality chances are the finished print will be also.

If you are unsure about any of our artwork requirements please send us the file to review.

Screen Printing Artwork

  • Artwork must be supplied in vector format, CMYK colour mode
  • Vector format files are commonly .eps, .ai, and true vector .pdf
  • If you are wanting us to screen print a specific colour, please advise the PMS colour code (from the PMS C – Coated – book). The water based inks used will be matched as closely as possible, but, could still differ slightly.
  • Ensure all fonts are converted to outlines for all text used. Otherwise send us a copy of the type font (TTF).
  • Ensure all artwork is in spot (solid) colour(s), as gradients create too much of a print variation
  • Tea towels are 50x70cm, with max print area 40x60cm

The most common vector programs include (Adobe Illustrator), (CorelDRAW), (Macromedia Freehand) or (Inkscape).

Vector is used in the printing industry as best practice. Vector graphics can be scaled indefinitely without losing quality. They have much smaller file sizes than pixel-based graphics.

We can redraw most designs into vector format, if required, for an additional cost.

DTG Digital printing

The best file for printing will be:

  • 300 DPI resolution – at print size – that has a transparent background
  • This is best in the file format .png, however, a .jpg will work also
  • You can supply a vector file, which we can create the png from
  • Tea towels are 50x70cm, with max print area 40x60cm
  • Please note: DTG price is for standard ink coverage of less than 50%. You can send us the file for review
  • DTG Digital Sampling is a great first step for a screen print run: exact colour matching is not possible due to the RGB colour mode environment for DTG Digital vs. MYCK colour mode for Screenprinting
