• Each color on separate layer

Vector Graphic Files
Vectors files are preferred for screen, direct to garment and heat transfer vinyl printing. Vectors use points and paths to create shapes, lines, and text; keeping the same qualities no matter how large or small the file. Almost all vector files can be used for screen, direct to garment and heat transfer vinyl printing with minimum pre-press manipulation.
Raster Graphic Files
Raster files are acceptable, but less ideal for screen, direct to garment and heat transfer vinyl printing. Rasters are made of pixels, meaning each tiny square of info contains a set amount of visual information. Rasters are measured in dots per inch or dpi. This is a measure how much detailed color information a specific image contains. A logo file at 72dpi will have A LOT less detail than the same image at 300dpi. Only high-resolution (300dpi) images can be successfully and easily used for screen, direct to garment and heat transfer vinyl printing.
