To have your logo screen printed on apparel or accessories, a 'screen' (or 'stencil') of your logo or art has to be made. But don't worry, we will take care of that part. Our art department will take the necessary steps to prepare your art for this process. All we need from you is your art!
Screen printing is an artistic process where a digital version of your art is generated to capture each individual part or color of your logo or design. An acetate film is produced, representing a positive of the design. Screens are 'photochemically' burned from the acetate film positives, then rinsed under high pressure to knock out a stencil. The stencil allows the ink to transfer through the design onto the imprinted material.
Every design has to have a screen containing a 'stencil' of the art in order to transfer it onto a garment. For every color in your design, a separate screen is needed. College Hype requires that new screens are produced for all NEW artwork submitted. Screens can be re-used if a customer wishes to re-order.
College Hype has a full staff of Artists that are ready to create for you.WE OFFER THE FOLLOWING SERVICES:
If a file is not truly vector-based, submit the original file format. Gradients/older versions of software may cause problems in translation. Please submit a matching pixel image (such as jpg) so that the art can be verified upon opening.
For embroidery, jpg and bmp are preferred formats. Photographs MUST BE ACTUAL SIZE or larger or loss of detail is probable.
Pixel images CAN be extracted from Office files with extra processing time. If a logo was created with a Microsoft Office Application, a camera ready printout as large as possible is more effective than submitting the actual computer file.
