Whether you're searching for the perfect gift, planning an event, creating a company giveaway, or simply wanting to add a funky new clothing item to your wardrobe, partnering with a screen printing and embroidery company in Marathon City can be just what you need to make your product a hit. There are a few things that your partner will need from you to ensure your design is a total success.


The most important thing your screen printing & embroidery company will need from you is the artwork. The more detail in the design and the higher quality the image, the better your screen printed item will turn out. For the best results, you will want to provide a design that has 300 dpi (dots per inch). This allows the screen printer to be able to adjust the design without losing quality for optimal printing on your apparel. Lower-quality images can create a distorted picture or dull colors. 

When sending your artwork to the printer, double-check the file type. Sending a vector file (PDF, EPS, AI, SVG, CDR) is best if at all possible. Avoid sending JPEG and PNG files, as those file types are compressed and cannot be adjusted to size without distorting the image. 

If you need help determining if your artwork is print-worthy, the experts at Four Seasons Screen Printing can assist!


Let your screen printer know what colors you prefer to use or if you need to do a color match beforehand. This is especially important when trying to do an exact color match to fit a company logo or school mascot colors. By sharing the RGB, PMS, or HEX colors with your screen printing & embroidery partner in Marathon City, they will be able to embroider or screen print a design in the exact colors you need to match with your other products. PMS is the most accurate of the three color types. 

Product Details and Date

Often, when screen printing apparel, clients forget to tell the printer how many shirts they need in each size or which color logo to put on the product. Take a minute to run through the specifics of your order to make sure you have all the information you need. Some of these specifics include: 

  • How many of each product
  • What sizes you need
  • Which designs need to go on which product (if there is more than one design)
  • Which colors are to be used for each product

Also, if these items are for a specific event, let them know that, as well as the date of the event. By informing your screen printer upfront of any hard deadlines, you will ensure you get your product on time, without any hassle.
