Saving a File to 300 Dpi in Photoshop

Printing Awkward Art

There are many ways to save art and make it "print ready" and easy for us to create screens for printing.

The easiest and most popular way to save art is as a Vector file. Vector files such as AI and EPS can remain easy to edit so you can open them in Illustrator and change or distort any text or elements within the design. With files that contain text or objects that are saved as a JPG, PNG or GIF, you can not reopen and edit.

There is a way to print high resolution images, but they must be saved large enough so the details and fine lines are clean and crisp. 

Below is a video with directions on saving a photoshop file for the best possible print.

One of our favorite new innovations has been our Signature 24 Carat Mirror Gold Ink... it's a true head-turner and something that is 100% guaranteed to make your brand or event stand out in the crowd! But instead of just telling you about it though, we decided to make a quick video so you can actually see our Signature 24 Carat Mirror Gold Ink in action:

 


This is perfect for special occasion t-shirts, (like if you hit a sales goal, achieve a certain # of team members, reach a special anniversary of the business, etc.). and although it might throw of the "branding" of your business by not printing your logo in the marketing-approved pantone color, everyone will love that you decided to take a risk on something truly remarkable- for that amazing achievement.

Save Big Money On Large Custom T-Shirt Orders by Following this Tip
"We love helping our customers save $$$ on custom t-shirt orders..." ~ Bill Svoboda, Founder

No matter the size of order, we know that price is always something that's a big part of the decision process, when someone is thinking through where to order custom printed t-shirts. Fortunately, ever since we started 13+ years ago, we have been able to offer very competitive prices that compliment our high-level of customer care, but we are still always looking for ways to help our customer save money on their orders.

Since we get asked so frequently for ways to save money on large orders, our founder Bill decided to hop in front of the camera to outline one BIG money saving technique that some of our largest clients use.  And while this video may best apply to someone that is ordering hundreds or thousands of t-shirts per year, another simple way to cut costs is to relook at how many ink colors or logos you are having us print on your t-shirts... along with possibly choosing a different brand.

 


Our Coed Monkey Brand Reps are always here to help, so please let us know if you had any questions, because we wanna make sure you look amazing in soft, custom printed t-shirts (that fit your budget!)

[VIDEO]  What does American Apparel's Bankruptcy & Acquisition by Gildan mean?
[VIDEO] What does American Apparel's Bankruptcy & Acquisition by Gildan mean?

March 06, 2017

"American Apparel's 50/25/25 was the first t-shirt I fell in love with." 
~ Bill Svoboda, Founder

Since American Apparel's last round of bankruptcy, and acquisition by Gildan, America has been wondering what the future of American Apparel will be... and what all of this means for Screen Printing on American Apparel t-shirts. 

Some of the most common questions range from "Will I still be able to get Custom Printed American Apparel T-Shirts," to "Since Gildan aquired them, does that mean the quality is going to go down?" and to even, "Will American Apparel still be made in America."

So, since we hear a lot of things that the public may not hear, our founder Bill Svoboda wanted to make a short video, to update everyone on what we know... and what that might mean you, as you are thinking of having us print on American Apparel t-shirts:

 

Here at Coed Monkey, we wanna be more than a printer, but a partner... helping you look amazing in custom screen printed t-shirts!  So if you are looking for alternatives to American Apparel, here is one of our favorite options to consider (still super-soft & still tailored but with an even more cost-effective price), our Custom Canvas 50/2525 T-Shirt:

Our Custom Canvas 50/25/25 T-Shirt is a great alternative to American Apparel right now

Please let us know if you had any questions, or if you are looking to order one of our Coed Monkey Sample Packs to help you choose the right blank t-shirt brand for your t-shirts.

Feel free to give us a call (1-877-T-Shirt-1), drop us a Contact Message or start a Live Chat, and we'll be ready to help through all the American Apparel questions.
