Follow these steps below to submit artwork for Sublimation:
- Use a professional design program such as Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator or Corel Draw to create your designs in RGB color mode.
- Artwork must be a minimum resolution of 200 dpi, a transparent background and scaled to size (the size to be printed).
- Convert all text/fonts to smart objects or shapes.
- Submit high resolution artwork in PSD Format (we will also accept PNG, JPEG, PDF formats) or vector format (preferred).
Note: We do not accept BMP or low quality images taken from the internet. As a rule – quality artwork yields a quality print. So take the time and invest in creating your artwork in hi-resolution.

Designing your gear online, you’ll receive an instant proof for approval. Here, you can make as many changes as you wish before submitting your order.
For orders not designed via our online designer, you will receive an online proof for approval.
When viewing online proofs, please keep in mind these are computer generated versions of the overall layout and the finished product may look slightly different. The proof is to reference logo placement and to view colors selected for print. Everyone’s monitor /screen will display the colors in the proof slightly different. It is the customer’s responsibility to veiw the proof in it’s entiriey and check for any errors. Once approved, changes can not be made to the design or layout.
Also, the type of garment, blend and color all affect the final print color. This is normal and we try our best to counter act this whenever possible.
To keep your decorated garments looking their best and last wash after wash, we recommend the following care instructions:
- Wait at least 24 hours before first wash.
- Wash inside out in cold/warm water set to normal wash cycle. The use of chlorine bleach is not recommended for any type of garment, especially decorated apparel.
- Hang to dry or in automatic dryer at low setting. Placing clothing is a dryer will shorten the garment life.
For hard surfaces, clean as you normally would as your item will not fade, peel or crack.
Unfortunately, we can not accept customer supplied garments for production/decoration. We offer a wide variety of apparel options through several of our suppliers, which are available in our online product catalogs.
Due to the customization nature of apparel decoration, we can not accept returns on custom items. So, please be sure you have the correct sizes when ordering along with paying attention to your online proof for accuracy.
