Art Details

This is a quick and dirty rundown on what you need to do in order to set up your art.

Resolution

  • Minimum: 150 DPI
  • Best: 300 DPI

Canvas Size (in pixels)

  • Torso (front and back): 3360 x 4194 @ 150 DPI
  • Short Sleeves (L & R): 2890 x 1683 @ 150 DPI
  • Long Sleeves (L & R): 2890 x 3810 @ 150 DPI
  • Collar: 3360 x 834 @ 150 DPI

Formats

  • Vector Format – any file that doesn’t have any shadows or special effects into its design. Best would be an Adobe Illustrator file (.ai) or a High Resolution .pdf file.
  • Raster Format – any file that DOES have shadows, shades, or special effects into its design, the raster format will keep those in place. Best would be an open Adobe Photoshop file with the layers opened (.psd) at 300 DPI
