Digital File Formats
Artwork should be submitted in two methods. The first and most important is a vector format. Traditionally, file extensions for vector art end in .EPS, .CDR, .AI or in some cases, .PDF
The second file submitted should be a Jpeg. This will allow us to ensure that there have not been any colour changes or alterations to your vector artwork which can sometimes occur due to new graphic software. Please limit file sizes to 30 MB.
With some decoration options, high-resolution Jpeg formats are expectable but not recommended. Avoid using images from the internet, as most do not print with an acceptable level of quality.
Should vector artwork not be readily available, we also accept the following formats. Please be aware that additional art fees may apply.
Saving Your Artwork
When designing your art files, please ensure that all Corel files must are saved in Corel X4 or lower. While using Adobe Illustrator, files must be saved in CS4 or lower. In all instances, ensure that you have converted all fonts to outlines (for Adobe users) or curves (for Corel users) before submitting artwork.
To convert fonts using CorelDraw:
With your art ungrouped, select all type and convert it to curves by selecting "Arrange/Convert to Curves." Note that script type styles will need to be welded in addition to being converted to curves.
To convert fonts using Adobe Illustrator:
With your art ungrouped, select all type and convert it to outlines by selecting "Type/Create Outlines.
When embellishing using heat transfers, tackle twill or appliqué; referencing PANTONE® colours or CMYK values is required. Full colour heat transfers are printed using a 4-colour process inks, known as CMYK (Cyan-Magenta-Yellow-Kelly). Note that exact colour matches are not always obtainable using CMYK inks.
Please review your paper proof thoroughly. Unless stated on your proof, all artwork will be to size. Ensure that when printing your art proofs, "fit to page" is not selected. Once an electronic approval is received indicating that your proof is correct, the order will be non-refundable.

Dye Migration Caution
Certain color and design restrictions may apply on applications due to sublimated fabric. For best results, we always recommend consulting with our decoration department. You are responsible testing our transfers on your garments. Some Heat Transfer Solutions are not guaranteed to block dye migration. Due to the variability of textiles available on the market testing is highly recommended. If you are applying your transfers to polyester garments, it is advised that you do not pre-heat the garment. Raised Edge Inc. will not be held responsible for damaged garments that have not been tested over a 72 hour period.
