Additional Program Details

Artwork Details

Direct Embroidery and embroidered patch art files need to be in vector format (non-vector art will require additional lead-time to receive virtuals), Adobe Illustrator (.ai), encapsulated PostScript (.eps) or scalable vector graphic (.svg). Please provide size and PMS color specifications with artwork submission. Digitizing services and set up fees are free. Creating vector artwork will increase lead time and design time. Accurate re-creation cannot be guaranteed. Outdoor Cap reserves the right to alter a customers' file to deliver a quality product. Outdoor Cap will match PMS with closest matching thread and may need to alter the artwork to best fit the decoration space or decoration technique.

File Format

Embroidery and Fabric Patches: Vector art in .ai, .eps or .svg format is required. JPEG, DST or other non-vector file types will increase the lead time for sample sew out or virtual due to artwork vectorization.
Accurate re-creation cannot be guaranteed.
Sublimated Patches: Vector file in .ai, .eps, .svg or raster file at least 300 dpi in .jpg, .gif, .png, .tif, .psd or .bmp format.
Leather Patches: Single color vector art in .ai, .eps or .svg format.
