Logo artwork guidelines to enable Sewprint to add your embroidered or printed logo to your workwear.

Good quality artwork is essential to avoid unnecesary charges and delays. To ensure you receive the highest quality embroidery and print customisation, please review our artwork guidelines below.

If you do not have the artwork in a format suitable for personalisation, we can convert your existing artwork to a suitable editable format (re-draw), at a cost of £15 + VAT. We will contact you and ask for confirmation prior to any work taking place.


Vector CD, AI files and EPS files for printing

CorelDraw or other vector and EPS files are the preferred files types for great artwork reproduction. It's easy to differentiate between vectors and other formats. If you zoom into a vector, you will see smooth edges and virtually no distortion. If you zoom into a bitmap (also known as a Raster file), the image and edges will look distorted and pixelated. Examples of bitmaps are JPEG and GIF files. Adobe PDF files MUST be created from vector files to maintain editing capabilities.
Vector artwork is different to bitmap files. Sewprint Workwear can convert you bitmap files into editable vector artwork to make your garment customisation look superb.

Please ensure you don't create a bitmap file and then save it as a CD, AI or EPS file. It will still retain the properties of a bitmap and would be unusable. We would need to re-draw the image to ensure it is in an editable format.

Embedding fonts and converting fonts to paths (or curves)

Embedding fonts and converting text paths to curves.









If your logo has any specific fonts crucial to your corporate image, then these MUST be converted to paths (or converted to curves - depending on your software package). This simply means that the font is converted to a graphic object and once done, cannot be changed. If the conversion is not done, then when we receive the file and don't have the equivalent font, we won't be able to match your artwork.


Artwork for Embroidery

High resolution JPEG, GIF, TIF files are required to produce your embroidered logo.


High resolution JPG, BMP, TIF, EPS, AI, CD

All artwork files types are accepted as long as the resolution is of high quality. For all first embroidered logo orders or design amendments to existing logo's, there is a one-off charge of £15 + VAT charge for logos or graphics to be converted into a embroidery format (digitising). Your embroidered artwork will be held on file for future orders. Embroidery text set-up is FREE.

If you require any further help or advice on the suitability of your existing artwork for either embroidery or print purposes, please don't hesitate to contact us. You can call FREE on 0800 612 4905 or email us at artwork@sewprint.co.uk
