Art Specifications

Our art department prefers files in layered Adobe Photoshop or Adobe Illustrator formats.

Our overall preferred size for shirt back art is about 15" square at 300 dots per inch.
Our overall preferred size for shirt front art is 12" square at 300 dots per inch. 
Left chest (non-pocketed) is usually up to 4" square at 300 dots per inch. 
RGB or CMYK is fine for color mode.

EPS, AI or CDR formats are preferred. Vectored artwork in Adobe Illustrator or CorelDraw is fine.

TIF, PSD, or PNG formats are preferred for bitmap images, with transparent backgrounds.

JPG or GIF formats are lossy in nature, and contain poor colors and artifacts that will effect the quality of your artwork.  We can work with these, but these formats are not the best for production art.

Important! Be sure to include all fonts with your artwork or convert them outlines! Missing fonts will delay your job, and substitutions may have to be made if we can't find an exact match.

Very tiny letters do not work well with embroidery!

Please, no Microsoft Publisher or Word documents for artwork.

Your sales representative will direct you where to email artwork.











Color Matching


Worldwide Sportswear sends a digital layout proof  which is an on-screen representation of what the client’s product will look like when produced, prior to beginning production.

The digital layout proof supersedes all prior verbal, written, or other communications of any form.

Worldwide Sportswear will NOT be responsible for any errors in production when the item has been produced as specified in the approved proof.

Due to variations in computer monitors, Worldwide Sportswear  cannot guarantee the complete accuracy of colors seen on-screen on our website or on any digital proof created for the Customer.

To achieve the best possible on-screen representation of colors, Worldwide Sportswear uses the PANTONE® Matching System (PMS) to produce the digital proof. The on-screen representation of the PMS colors, in general, are close to the final product. Worldwide Sportswear is not liable or responsible if the Customer's computer monitor is faulty or improperly configured and does not display colors correctly or other systemized color scheme will take precedence over any displayed color.

In the case of Embroidered thread, it is recommended that PMS colors are provided so that the closest matching thread color or twill color can be chosen for your order. However, it should be noted that it is not always possible to match the thread/twill color to PMS colors provided.

Return Artwork Approval: Worldwide Sportswear will send an artwork approval via email on every new design, this must be returned to proceed with your order. Make sure the artwork is what you want. This returned approval confirms the accuracy of the artwork and assures that your order will print as you requested. Delay in returning artwork approval will affect scheduled ship date. Art approvals are the responsibility of the sales representative.

Modifications to a custom order: No order may be modified, cancelled, or returned once the final proof has been approved and production has begun.
