Design Service

Great Designs from your ideas
Your ideas turned into fantastic garments that make you and your team look good and feel good. Our design team are there to help you achieve this. We take great pride in our ability to create unique garments that reflect your requirements.

Simple or Complex
No job is too simple or too tough to tackle. We can print the whole spectrum of colour, print complex half tones, fade colours, saturate colours and reproduce photos on fabric for any garment. Alternatively you may prefer your logo screen printed or embroidered on our extensive range of standard garments.

Choose your level of Involvement
You may choose your level of involvement. We can do it all. You can do it all. Or we can share the design creation. You can experiment with your designs by visiting:

File Formats for communicating ideas
Our art department is able to accept a wide variety of files and graphics to incorporate into design (for example: Corel Draw, Illustrator, and Photoshop). Our program of preference is Corel Draw.

Web images, such as .jpg, .gif, or other low resolution bitmap type files are not suitable for printing but can be a good way for you to communicate your ideas to us.

More Technical Information
The SCODY Art Department is a PC based environment. Our program of preference is Corel Draw or Illustrator. We can accept files created in Photoshop, Acrobat Reader or Word. Corel Draw, Illustrator, or other vector-based files should have all fonts outlined or converted to curves.
All logos should be supplied with PMS colours. If you don’t know the PMS colour we can work from a colour swatch or a printed example. Photoshop and other pixel-based logos should be 300 dpi or better. Web images, such as .jpg, .gif, or other low resolution bitmap type files are not suitable for printing. Additional art time may be required to recreate or clean up images like these.
Email is our preferred method of receiving your artwork. If you are e-mailing files, please use uncompressed files if possible to avoid corruption. If your file is bigger than 5MB the best approach is to mail a disk, and include a colour hard copy for our reference.

Additional Charges For Design
Our aim is to create a design that you are delighted with. Our design service at is priced to achieve this and typically will involve approximately 3 hours of our Designers’ time. We do however understand that some requirements evolve over time, are more complex or more time consuming. If your design falls into this category we are happy to help but need to charge additional design fees. Examples of situations which take more time are:

Logos - If you supply a high resolution image we can quickly incorporate this in the design. If you are only able to supply a low resolution image we have to create your logo from scratch and this takes time.
Colours – If you can specify the PMS number for each colour we can precisely match the colours efficiently. If we have to work through a pallet of colours with you it can take time.
Changes – Sometimes it takes many designs and concepts to find the one that is right for you.

If your design will involve additional time we will let you know.
