Art Requirements

Artwork files

We accept several types of artwork and try not to add extra cost to your setup charges. Unfortunately, sometimes the art supplied is not usable. When we need to redraw art, we charge $45.00 per hour at 15 minute increments. The list below can help with the types of software and files we require.

SOFTWARE

FILE TYPE

PROPER FORMAT


Adobe Acrobat:

.pdf

Fonts must be embedded in the file

Adobe Illustrator:

.ai or .eps

Fonts must be converted to "outlines", select all and group.

Corel Draw:

.cdr

Fonts must be converted to "curves", select all and group.

Bitmaps:

.jpg, .tif, .gif, .png, .bmp

If using these type of art we prefer 300dpi if available.

Artwork Ownership

Please note that all artwork and digitized files that Accent Apparel LLC creates is the  property of Accent Apparel LLC. We will never use artwork you paid us to setup without your permission. We also will not release those files without compensation, the industry standard is 300% of the total order the artwork was created for. I hate to break it to you, but under US Copyright law, the designer automatically owns all rights to the work they do.

Embroidery Digitizing

Embroidery charges are based on how many stitches are in the design. The setup of any custom design is based on $10.00 per thousand stitches with a minimum cost of $40.00.

We also have many sock designs and fonts available. Those prices start at $15.00.

Please note that digitizing is a service, we are using our top of the line software to replicate your design. When the design is finished, you do not own the stitch pattern, we do. The $10.00 per thousand mentioned above is a discount considering we are doing your embroidery as well. If you want a copy of the design, we will supply you with it. However, at that point we require full payment for the design based on $20.00 per thousand.

Sorry, but we come from an era when these services were $30.00 per thousand. We still produce that kind of work.

Screen Printing Setup

Screen Printing is based on the number of colors in your design. We charge $20.00 per screen, this charge is just to burn the screen, it does not include any art time. If you supply us with a true vector art file (.ai .eps .cdr) that we don't have to edit, your cost would be $20.00. If you give us a .jpg file, an art charge will be added as described above.

We require an order of 12 pieces per ink color in your design. So, if you have a one color design, your minimum order is 12 pieces. If your design has 3 colors in it, the minimum is 36 pieces.

We do offer several other types of garment decoration for full color designs on small quantities. Direct to Garment, sublimation and iron on images are all available. Please see those pages under screen printing.
