Everything you need to know about Artwork

GRIT Team Bag ships your order within 5-days of art approval. In order to speed up that art proofing process, here's everything you need to know about your GRIT Team Bag Custom Artwork. 

How does GRIT Team Bag custom decorate GRIT Bags. 

GRIT Team Bag decorates your bags using a process called embroidery and machines that use a digital file to guide a machine in stitching your logo onto the bag.

What is the maximum embroidery decoration size?

6.5-inches by 6.5-inches (16.5cm x 16.5cm). This doesn't include sizing necessary to add names/numbers to the bags.

What is your preferred artwork format?

If you've had your artwork embroidered before, you may have access to the "Stitch File". If you have this, it's possible for us to replicate the previous embroidery exactly. For these style files, we prefer .PXF or .DST. We can also work with the following: POF, PED, KWK, PSF, PCH, EMD, DST, TBF, TCF, EMB, ART, PEC , PES, DSB, DAT SEW, JEF, CND, EXP, PCM, PCS, CSD, PUM, ARC, PAT, T15, XXX, HUS , SHV, VIP , VP3, DSZ

If you don't have the stitch file, if you have access to "vector artwork", such as an .eps, .svg, .ai (Illustrator) or .cdr (Corel Draw). 

If you don't have vector artwork, the next most desirable option is a high resolution "raster" version of your graphic. This includes format such as .png, .jpg, .pdf, .jpeg, .gif, and .bmp. This graphic should be at least 1,050x1,050px (7"x7" at 150dpi). 

If you don't have any of the above or are unsure, no worries! Our art staff is on hand to help you figure it out. Please note though, that in the absence of workable artwork, the process of proof approval can be delayed. 

Are there any limitations to the artwork?

Fine details, gradients, "Hairlines", photorealism, and lettering smaller than .25" are not possible due to the process of embroidery.
