Other considerations..

  • All fonts must be converted to outlines.
  • For screen-printing on canvas totes, text should be no smaller than 10 point and for half tones 35 line screen must be used. Consistency of halftones is not guaranteed.

  • BITMAP or placed images are not recommended.
  • The colors must be separated for multi-color artwork.
