Artwork is one of the most important factors of screen-printing. In order to create breathtaking prints that your customers will love use high quality art. Misprints can occur, even at experienced shops, however there are ways to avoid them with high resolution art to keep your prints crisp and clear.
Tip #1: Make Clear Guidelines for Providing Artwork to Your Shop.
Do not start your art file with low resolution. The quality in your finished work will not be up to par and you will end up with a mediocre print. I highly recommend adding guidelines for your customers when they send art. If they follow these strict guidelines than your clients will be satisfied with the end product.
