ART HELP
Color Help
Can you match PMS colors?
NO, This is a digital process and does not accept pms matching in any way.
Why do you recommend creating art in CMYK format?
CMYK color is a subtractive color model which is what all printing devices use when printing; RGB is an additive model for display on computer monitors. Therefore, when your artwork is being printed the printer itself will convert all artwork to CMYK mode. This is why we recommend previewing your artwork in CMYK mode prior to uploading to the online tool.
To insure the least amount of color shift please create the art in CMYK format.The brighter, more intense the color, the greater the chance it will switch when converted to CMYK format
Do you have recommended color builds I can use to ensure color accuracy?
NEW Color reference chart
Use the chart below to find accurate color builds for the color your trying to match. If you find the color your looking for in the chart below copy the CMYK values and use those percentages when selecting color in programs like Photoshop, Illustrator, Corel Draw.

For color matching Colorado Timberline recommends you first submit a sample order using the swatches below on the product you are planning to order. You can do this be going into the design tool > selecting your product > select clipart > select the Color Swatch category > place onto your product and submit your order. Once you receive this order you will see the actual color printed on your product. This will allow you to get great color output in the future.
*This is only a recommendation to get close to the expected color output. Colorado Timberline does not do color matching.There will be some color variance from order to order*


File Help
Why can't I use a .jpg with darks?
Because your file will print a white square around your art work Jpg's are not layered files and because of this will not support transparency. So what you see on your screen will print! We require .png when submitting art for dark products.
What are dark garment file requirements and how do I prepare my artwork?
We Only accept file in .PNG format only
All files must be 300 DPI
All files should have a TRANSPARENT Background.
We only accept art with clean edges on the outer most edge.

NO fades or gradients that fade into the garment color.


Type outside of art should be at least 30 points in size

Your art should not exceed 10" X 12"
Because of the inherent difficulties of printing on absorbent material we can NOT guarantee 100% color matching.

What is an FTP and how do I use yours?
FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol

File Transfer Protocol (FTP), a standard Internet protocol, is the simplest way to exchange files between computers on the Internet. FTP is commonly used to transfer Web page files from their creator to the computer that acts as their server for everyone on the Internet. It's also commonly used to download programs and other files to your computer from other servers.
