What is the Trimming Zone? The Trimming Zone, or the trim line, is where the product will be trimmed to its final size. The trim line indicates the final size of the product. Please keep in mind that variations may occur during the trimming process, and we cannot guarantee that your product will be trimmed perfectly along the trim line.
Work and Tumble:A printing method where different pages are assembled so that they are on one plate. One side is printed and the sheet is turned from front to rear so that you are using the opposite edge as the gripper edge and then the second side is printed. The product is then cut apart to make two finished items.

-Do I need to set up my artwork differently for various colors?
No. For all T-Shirts; the background color of your artwork must be transparent if you want the color of the garment to show. Saving a transparent PDF or TIF file is the best way to do this. You can also send in EPS files with no background. For example, if you want a logo printed on a garment and your artwork contains the logo with a white background, or any background color, it will print as you see it on the file. The logo must be on a transparent background if you only want the logo to print.

• Do not paste small or low resolution images into your design file (such as a logo that is only 0.75”x1” in size, for example).
• Low resolution images will not print clearly (72 DPI or less). This includes images copied off of the internet.
• The best way to check the print quality of an image is to view that image at Print Size, if possible. Whatever appears pixilated or blurry will print that way.
• The next‐best way to check the print quality of an image is to view that image at its Actual Size (100%). Whatever appears pixilated or blurry will print that way.
• The units of measure used by eSigns.com are feet and inches. 1’ = 12”
• To find how many inches a given side of a sign with a size listed in feet equals, multiply the given value by 12. (So a horizontal banner of 3’x6’ is equal to 36”x72”.)
• Products are listed by Height (top‐to‐bottom) first, and Width (left‐to‐right) second. (So 3’x6’ is a horizontal (landscape) sign, and 6’x3’ is a vertical (portrait) sign.)
• For best results, your design file should have a resolution of 150 DPI and the canvas/page size should be set to the actual size of the sign (in inches).
• Design files larger than the actual size of the sign can be submitted. (Decreasing the size of an image normally does not cause problems.)
• Design files smaller than the actual size of the sign will usually need to be adjusted before being printed.
• If working at half of the sign’s actual size would be easier - and depending on the computer and software you’re using, it may be - then please make sure your file’s resolution is at least 300 DPI.
• If you have a complete design file, make sure you’ve selected the Upload Print-Ready Design option instead of-the Design Online option before uploading your file.
•Uploading your design for proofing takes place before placing an order, so there is no obligation to buy if the proof shows the design to be unsuitable for printing.
• While you may choose to skip the proof for your file, it is not recommended - skipping the proof means that any problems your design may have will not be discovered until after the order has been placed, rather than before.
• If problems are found with a skipped proof or an online design, we will send notice by email.
Final Tips & Tricks:
• ZIPX: This compression format will give the best results but is only supported by a limited number of programs at this time. If using this format, it will help to create a Self-Extracting Archive file. That will allow someone who does not have a program that works with ZIPX files to extract the design. Please make sure to let our personnel know that you will be uploading such a file, otherwise the file (which will be an EXE) may be rejected. A stand‐alone ZIPX file may also be rejected without advanced notice.
• If you have a full version of Adobe Acrobat®, you have another tool available to you that can help make your design something easy to transfer and process. The “Create PDF from File” option can be used to import and convert a design file that is over the 100 MB file size limit directly to PDF. (One example of this process is a recent TIFF of just under 400 MB. Putting it into a ZIP file reduced the file size by 63% (139 MB). Putting it into a ZIPX file brought it down by 80% (79 MB). And converting it to PDF in Acrobat® brought it down to 11 MB (about 2.8% of the file’s original size, without a loss of image quality).
• PSB Files: If you work with PSD and PSB files in older versions of Photoshop or applications that don’t support layers, you can add a flattened version of the image to the saved file. Note: If you save an image in an earlier version of Photoshop, features that version doesn’t support are discarded. It can help to make sure you produce a PSB file with the compatibility settings turned on.
1. Choose Edit > Preferences > File Handling (Windows) or Photoshop > Preferences > File Handling (Mac OS).
2. From the Maximize PSD and PSB File Compatibility menu, choose any of the following: Always ‐ Saves a composite (flattened) image along with the layers of your document. Ask ‐ Asks whether to maximize compatibility when you save. Never ‐ Saves only a layered image.
|Our Certified Templates are a great tool to create artwork that can be printed faster, easier, and more accurately. If you are using Illustrator, you can use our specialized EPS templates. If you are using something other than Illustrator, download the JPG version.|
|Here is what each of the lines mean inside the template:|
|Here is what an 8.5x11 brochure template looks like:|
|These templates will help you identify where the cut line, bleed line, and safety line, are located along with other information so you can design your art correctly.|
|Some of our templates are labeled as OUT and IN. This means that there is some folding involved with the template. OUT means the FRONT of the job and IN means the BACK. During the upload part of your order, remember that OUT is the FRONT and IN is the BACK.|
|Here is an example of the fold-over business card template:|
|As you can see, OUT is the FRONT of the job and after folding, will be facing outward. You can also see the rotation of the job. The front must be positioned upside down so it can fold correctly.|
|Remember, do not move or change any part of the template when using them.|
|Any transparency issue can be resolved before saving your file. - What a transparency problem looks like on screen...|
