Art Guidelines

Fredrik’s Design accepts files from the following programs:

  • Adobe Illustrator (.ai)
  • Adobe Photoshop (.psd)
  • Adobe Fireworks (.png)
  • Adobe Flash (.fla)
  • Corel Draw (.cdr)
  • Microsoft Paint
  • Microsoft Photo Draw
  • Paint Shop Pro

Vector Art is best!
Vector Art is art that is created in a vector program such as Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Flash or Corel Draw. Each object in vector file can be selected and individually manipulated independently from the rest of the image.

Vector art uses these common files extensions: .ai, .eps, .cdr and .fla.
All fonts must be outlined (changed from fonts to graphics), or converted to curves.

Raster Art
Raster art is art that is built in a pixel based program such as Photoshop, Fireworks or Photopaint.

Raster art uses these common file extensions: .psd, .tif, .jpg, .gif and .png.

Send us art with a resolution of 180 dots (pixels) per inch at the actual printable size. An example of art suitable for a full front design would be 12 inches wide with a resolution of 180 pixels per inch.

As always, we never charge for cleaning and polishing your existing artwork and we also create custom standard artwork for FREE with your apparel order, but not without our own set of guidelines and policies. More complex redraws may incur a one time $199 complex art fee. Click here to read more Fredrik’s Design company guidelines and policies.
