Top Uniforms has
a full service graphics department. Whether
you need to have a logo designed from scratch or you want your
existing logo printed, we can do it.
Screen printing art is
a highly technical process completely different from other forms
of printing. We use the most current, up to date programs to insure
crisp, clear and concise art. If you have an existing logo you
can minimize art costs by bringing it in a form that can easily
be made into separations for printing. There is an hourly charge
for most art services.

Information about sending us graphics files:
Paint Programs Files
There are hundreds of different file types that can be used to
contain graphical information. Some of them are more versatile
than others, and some can be downright problematic when it comes
to generating camera-ready artwork for the screen printing or
Some of the most common file types we receive include Compuserve
GIFs, Jpegs, Bitmaps, and TIFs. While these file formats are easily
viewed, they are not as easily edited or scaled. These file types
often do not produce satisfactory camera-ready artwork, but can
be quite useful to convey to us what it is you would like so that
we can generate the finished design in-house.
Drawing Program Files
If your design was created in a vector-based drawing program,
such as CorelDraw, Adobe Illustrator, Freehand, etc. then it is
preferable to keep the data in a vector format rather than converting
it to a pixel format (such as the types mentioned in the preceding
paragraph). This means saving (or, in some case, exporting) your
design as an AI (Illustrator), EPS (Encapsulated Postscript) or
CDR (CorelDraw) file. Our preference is the CDR file type, as
our Graphics Department uses the CorelDraw 7.0 graphics package.
These vector-based file types are very versatile, fully scalable,
and are typically of camera-ready calibre.
One important point to note with vector files
is that all text should be converted to curves/outlines in case
we do not have any of the fonts used in the design loaded on our
What We Use
Our Graphics Department uses Pentium computers running on a Windows
platform. This means that any designs created on a Macintosh platform
must be saved as PC files, and that BinHex decoding should be
turned off in your Email software when sending us your design.
Lastly, we at TOP UNIFORMS do not reproduce any copyrighted
or trademark logos without express written consent of the owners
of that logo.
