Hello all

 

I was just wondering if anybody could help me how to make the ideal file from procreate and ready for print on apparel. Without having to vectorize my designs, how can I rescale them if needed without losing quality as well? Cheers!

 

 

Here is a design I want to use.Untitled_Artwork.jpg

Now you want to do a photo, which is actually easier than vector in Illustrator as you do not need to trap. You just need enough resolution, and to supply a white plate. For example, if you print than onto a black shirt, you want to put a spot color of white underneath the flowers and type, then your other 4 inks for CMYK come in afterwards.

For resolution ask your screen printer for their specs. 300 dpi at actual size should be enough.

in regards to white plate, your printer may do that of you. If not read up on spot colors & channels in Photoshop.

 

You need to talk to your printer, as you may also have to worry about halftone dot size. Depends on the quality of their screen.
