- I can provide basic artwork for a fee of $70. More intricate and designs will be priced as per request

NOTE: 72 DPI will only produce a poor quality print. Most pixel based images from the web are usually 72 dpi and are near impossible to use for screen printing, unless you don’t mind that lo-fi un-readable look!
BUT WHAT ARE “PIXEL” & “VECTOR” FORMATS EXACTLY?
Vector images are mathematical calculations from one point to another that form geometrical shapes.
A vector program will use a mathematical formula to build an image that can be scaled to any size without losing quality
Pixel or Raster images are made of pixels. A pixel is a single point or the smallest single component in a display device. Let’s think of them as little tiny squares of colour that make up a photo or web image.
WHEN IT COMES TO PIXELS, 300DPI IS THE BEST – A good rule of thumb when deciding if Pixels or Vector is best; Pixels for Photos – Vector for Logos and Graphics.
72dpi is mainly for websites, but when it comes to any kind of print, for the best result your image needed to be created at 300dpi and 100% the final print size.
When a pixel or raster image is scaled up, it loses quality. A raster image can be enlarged by either adding more pixels (which Photoshop randomly – but smartly – adds) or enlarging the size of the pixel. Either way you are spreading the original data over a larger area and will lose clarity.
