Embroidery Artwork Requirements

Artwork guidelines are what we prefer. If you do not meet these guidelines or are unsure, please don't hesitate to call us at 906.828.2500
We will not turn away jobs that don't meet our guidelines.


Customers should supply artwork via email in the form of a vector image, PDF, EPS, AI, BMP, PSD or JPG. Please provide the art at a minimum of 300 DPI. If artwork supplied requires typesetting, changes, touch ups, or does not meet Advanta Print specifications, we reserve the right to modify the artwork and charge accordingly. If requested, we will provide you with a sample sew out for approval before sewing on the actual garments.

Digitizing fees start at a minimum of $35.00 for chest or cap locations. Large full front or backs could range between $80 to $100 depending on how detailed the design is. Original digitizing is a one time fee. However if edits need to be made at a later day, a $25 edit fee will be added on to your order.

The following are not considered desirable: photocopies, pen and/or pencil drawings, business cards, letterheads. Although we can digitize these, the quality is only as good as the material you supply us with. Please provide us with the best top quality art you can.

Please note that customer supplied disks created for specific colors or fabrics may not be compatible with our products (i.e., previously done on hats may not sew well on bags). In cases such as these, a new disk may be needed.
