feeling trapped?

Understanding how to set up files for screen printing can be a bit tricky, which is why we’ve put together some information to help you out. Below are links to digital templates we encourage you to use to help make your project go smoothly, as well as some basic info on file set-up and trapping.

Click on the links to download a template with registration and crop marks that can be placed in the design program you are using to lay out your project. Remember each color needs to be on a separate layer. For single color shirts we still recommend using the template as it helps center the art on the shirt.

Please note: for all commercial printing projects we will discuss file setup before having you submit final files.

Need Paper?

We buy 90% of our paper from the French Paper Company which is a sixth-generation, family-owned paper mill, located on the banks of the St. Joseph River in Niles, Michigan U.S.A.

Great selection of colors where we recommend either 80# or 100# cover.
