This is the file format for artwork created in a vector-based program. Vectored describes the process of creating paths and points in a program such as freehand or illustrator. The program keeps track of the relationships between these points and paths so that when the image is scaled for different print areas or curved surfaces, the paths are regenerated. These are the best file types to use as they reproduce the most accurately.
You will need to supply us with your colour references. Every colour has a PANTONE Matching System (PMS) reference number. This is a system used throughout the industry to ensure any printer can match colours specified by any designers.

How do I know if my artwork is OK for printing?
You can upload your artwork through our website or email it to us. We can advise if it is not suitable for printing. If it is low resolution then we can help you redraw it or you can resubmit a higher resolution artwork.
Yes we can. We like to quote for this, rather than order directly online due to the nature of the intricacy and level of accuracy required for stitching. You can send us your artwork and we can best advise.
If you’ve ordered plain bags that have not been decorated, then you may send them back to us within 14 days of receiving them and incur carriage costs.
If you have approved artwork and a pre-production sample that has then gone into print, we are unable to offer you a refund. If we have made a mistake, then we will of course discuss with you how we can rectify it and offer you a solution.
