  • Artwork must be HIGH-RES: 300 dpi. Any artwork less than 300 dpi will produce pixelated screen images.
  • Maximum print area: Silkscreens are 12"H x 15"L. Printable area is 11" H x 14" L due to 1/2" margins

Artwork Considerations & Recommendations:

  • Margins: We recommend a ½" to 1" margin around each design element or image (our video on using SilkScreen Medium provides a good perspective on the importance of margins: .
  • Rescaling your images: scaling a higher resolution image to a smaller size will not reduce print quality, but scaling an image to a larger size WILL cause distortion and an inferior screen image.
  • One-Color screens: we do not offer 4-color separation screens at this time. Adding multiple colors to your design: we provide several techniques how to accomplish this on this site
  • Half-tone designs are acceptable.
  • Mayco Screens: we can scale up (or down) ANY images found on our screens. For example: expanding any animal image from the Woodland Animals screen from 3" to 6". Just indicate the product sku and the specific image in your email - no need to upload any image or file.
