Data file specification

In order to get into production, we will need the following info:

  • Billing information (in case of an individual customer: a name and an address)
  • Delivery address (if different from the billing address)
  • A contact person including a telephone number and an e-mail address for the courier company.
  • Printing (except for digital printing) or embroidery data files in vectors (in one of the following formats: *.ai, *.eps, *.pdf), 1:1 or bitmap files with resolution of at least 300dpi, 1:1.
  • Digital printing bitmap data files with resolution of at least 300dpi, 1:1.
  • Photoshop files with layers, 1:1.
  • The maximum print or embroidery size depends on your chosen textile. Please consult the size with us before submitting your order.
  • If there is text in your design, it's also necessary to "break" its font into vectors. If you are not sure what we mean, watch a short video where we show how to do it. 
  • Individual Pantone shades specification (we work with the Pantone Matching System, Coated Plus Series). If you do not specify the Pantone shade, we will prepare the shade based on the print data file. In the case of embroidery, we will select the thread colour closest to the colour shade from the embroidery data file or to the Pantone shade if provided.
  • Description of the placement of the design on the textile, ideally a preview PDF or JPG (the background colour must be identical to the textile colour).

If you are not sure about the quality of your data for the production or you have any questions regarding the print files, please contact us at info@merchyou.com and we will be happy to help!
