When laying out your art on our templates, go through this checklist to achieve the best results:

  Sized to fit the art area of the template

  300 dpi minimum

  Important/highly detailed art placed within safety zone/text limits

(Text, logos, and intricate patterns may blur outside this area.)

  Text no smaller than 12pt for Sublimation and XD, and 8pt for Direct Screen

(If a narrow or serif font, make bold to prevent closing in when sublimated.)

  One of these formats: PSD, AI, EPS, INDD, PDF, TIF, or high quality JPG

  If using Illustrator, text must be converted to outlines

  Saved in a way that preserves a high resolution

(Not optimized for web.)

Once your art meets our specifications for optimal production, you may send us your file(s) or a link to your ftp site or cloud service.

This is the side of the product that would face a right-handed drinker. For one-sided imprints, default position is RHD side unless otherwise directed.

Left Hand Drinker

This is the side of the product that would face a left-handed drinker.

Wrap Imprint

Direct Screen: Place art that will wrap around the product here. There will be a minimum .25" gap. This gap may be larger for larger products.

XD: Art will wrap a full 360 degrees around the product.

Want to include text in your XD imprint that is smaller than 12pt?
