What is a vector file?

We use Vector files to set up artwork for:

- Screen Printing

- Digital Vinyl Transfers

- Sublimation Printing

Please request your graphic designer to provide your artwork in one of the following file formats:

.eps or .ai

If you can't supply a vectorised copy of your logo/artwork, not to worry, we can vectorise your artwork in-house. A vectorisation set up fee will apply and pricing may vary depending on the artwork requirements or decoration method you choose. Our friendly sales staff will advise you if there are any vectorisation fees required for your order.
