So you have enrolled in our Rescue Love Support Program, now what?
1. Email Logo / Artwork to our design team at:
Please email all artwork to firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note that your logo/artwork must be "print ready" to qualify for the free shirt design, or to be used on t-shirts which means that we need a high quality scalable version so that we can make sure the print is high quality.
Acceptable file formats are .ai, .pdf, .eps, and .psd, and must have a resolution of 300dpi or greater. These are what we call "Print Ready" graphics. (.pdf or ai. files work best for shirts)
We cannot accept .jpg, .gif, and .png files as these do not work well on t-shirts. These formats are generally lower quality (resolution) files that work best for displaying on the web - other wise known as "Web Graphics"
If you don't have a high quality version of your logo or if it needs some tweaking, don't worry we can help with that too :) Please see our Rescue Branding section for pricing.
2. After we receive your artwork, we will contact you to discuss placement and any design revisions (if needed).
3. We will send you a proof of what your shirt will look like and after your approval, we will put your shirt up on our website.
4. You let all of your followers know about your new awesome shirts.
5. We send you a check monthly for the proceeds!
What the heck does DPI mean anyway? Here are some explanations to help you understand all of that design talk:
DPI: Dot’s per inch. The number of dots in a
printed inch. The more dot’s the higher the quality of the print (more
sharpness and detail).
PPI: Pixels per inch. Most commonly used to describe
the pixel density of a screen (computer monitor, smart phone, etc…) but
can also refer to the pixel density of a digital image.
Resolution: Resolution is the measure of pixels in the display, usually expressed in measurements of width x height. For example a monitor that is 1920 x 1080 is 1920 pixels across and 1080 pixels down.
Higher resolution means more detail. Higher DPI means higher
resolution. Resolution is not “size”, but it’s often confused with it
because higher resolution images are often bigger, but that doesn’t
necessarily have to be the case.
Print: 300dpi is standard, sometimes 150 is acceptable but never lower, you may go higher for some situations.
Web/Digital: DPI doesn’t equate to digital it’s a
print measure. It was commonly believed for a long that 72dpi was ideal
for web. If you hear that it’s simply not the way things work. When
talking digital, we’re concerned with the actual resolution. How that
image prints is another matter.
