For screen printing, artwork should be created in Vector format.  We can use .cdr, .ai, .eps and .pdf if the file is created in Adobe Illustrator or CorelDraw.  Changing a .jpg to an .eps or .pdf does not make it a Vector format file.  We can screen print raster images, (.jpg, .psd, .bmp, etc.) however, the quality of the print is only as good as the original artwork, and additional graphic design charges will apply to convert your artwork to the correct format for screen printing.

Yes, if this is a requirement from our customer. We have an extensive inventory of ink available for screen printing.

In the event a specific PMS color code is required by the customer, additional charges for mixing of the PMS color of ink will be required.
