Before sending us your artwork, please refer to the Artwork Requirement page for more details regarding acceptable image file formats. Our Print Size is up to 15 X 19 Inches ( please note: print size will affect prices ).
Some important tips:
Good image contrast and color quality are important. In the case of non-vector-format files (such as JPG, PNG) low compression, high resolution large image sizes are required in order to maintain print quality.
If possible, please provide your images in layered format so that we can adjust individual colors if necessary.
NOTE: If printing on dark shirts, please provide your image file with a transparent background. NOTE: if printing is to be done on black shirts, any black in the image must be converted to transparent for best results.
In many cases we can help improve your artwork if the image resolution or contrast is too low. Additional charges will apply, depending upon the amount of rework required and the quantity of the specific print ordered.
We supply many popular brands/styles of garments. For available garment colors, styles and sizes, please refer to the category pages for more information. Please note, garment color might be different depending on the quality of your computer display.
You can supply your own garments - what is required?
A few cautions are required in such cases:
Different fabrics will react in different ways depending on how well they can absorb water-based inks. We currently print on cotton, some cotton/synthetic blends garment. Please note that fabrics must be pre-shrunk.
Please be aware that part of the printing process involves placing the garment in a heat press to cure and bind the inks. Any garments we print on must be able to withstand normal ironing temperatures (about 330F/170C) without damage. For this reason we do not print on delicate fabrics without first doing a test print and washability tests (at extra cost)
If you send a garment which has already been worn, we require that it be laundered and well rinsed. Please do NOT use fabric softeners of any kind, because the inks will not be absorbed correctly due to the oily composition of the softener.
Please be aware that Sunro Printworks Ltd. accepts no responsibility for any damage caused to customer-supplied garments, simply because we have no control over the quality or composition of the fabrics involved.
NOTE! For customers supplying quantities of blank garments- Please be aware that the standard allowance for print errors due to unforeseen changes in the manufacturer's processing, dye lot chemistry, or other fabric changes is normally 5% of total quantity for each shirt style/size/color. Sunro Printworks will compensate for any errors beyond 5% which are due to faulty printing on our part, but the first 5% is the customer's responsibility in all cases.
