We accept vector artwork saved in the following file formats: Adobe Illustrator (.ai) & Editable EPS (.eps)
If at all possible, use vector artwork. Vector art is composed of paths, lines, curves, and shapes. These elements are controlled through points with definite locations on the x – and y – axes of the work plane. This process allows you to increase or decrease the size of the graphic without distortion. Vector artwork that is saved correctly is easily transformed into an acceptable screen printed graphic. If you do not use vector art, the screen printer’s graphic designers will have to completely recreate your design.
Convert all fonts to outlines or paths. If you are including a font in your design, it is crucial to convert them to paths or outlines. If you do not do so and your designer does not have the font you selected, they will not be able to use that font. When you convert fonts to outlines or paths, you are assured that your font shape will be preserved.
Use fewer colors. In order to transform your design into a screen-printed garment, each color requires its own film positive and its own screen. Those cost time and money. To reduce overall cost, use fewer colors to limit the total number of screens.

Uploads are limited to 15 seconds, although GIPHY recommends no more than 6 seconds. We recommend 8MB or less. Source video resolution should be 720p max, but we recommend you keep it at 480p.Keep in mind media will appear mostly on small screens or smaller messaging windows. GIPHY's mobile applications do optimize the content for size, which sometimes results in subtle changes to the GIF's size and speed, which is why following GIPHY's best practices is recommended! Minimizing the total number of frames will help GIPHY to preserve your content when downsizing and reformatting. Fewer than 200 frames works well. Fewer than 100 works even better!
