Team Kit Design Service

From your initial ideas or previous kit our design team will create a visual mock up in a jpeg/pdf format.

Please note: – you will need to supply us with any team and sponsors logos in the correct format – see Artwork section below.

Any modifications will be made and submitted to you for final approval.

If you need a new team logo or your existing one producing in the correct format please contact us for a quote.

Payment

If you are using our Team Kit Design Service then we require full payment for this prior to starting any design work.

When you are placing an order for your Team Kit we require payment of 100% of the total value by cheque or BACS to confirm your production slot. A delivery date will then be confirmed.

Artwork

All artwork that you send us for fonts and logos should be created as a composite file in a vector-based program using the required images, graphics, and text. The artwork should be converted to path/curves (vector format) to avoid loss of resolution during resizing.

Our preferred format is Adobe Illustrator (.ai) or Adobe Illustrator EPS (.eps).

However, if you only have your logo as a jpeg and can supply it at 300 dpi (set at the actual dimensions you wanted it used) then, subject to sight of the file, we maybe able to use it.

If artwork is supplied in another digital format other than mentioned above a fee will be quoted for turning the artwork into a usable format.

Artwork Glossary

Vector Graphic

A graphics format that uses shapes and lines, called paths. Vector graphics are resolution independent graphics that appear smooth and crisp regardless of how magnified the image is on screen. They also can be enlarged as big as you want them without having jagged edges.

 

CMYK

These are the initials of the four process colours

Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Black.

K is used for black to not confuse people into thinking blue.

 

RGB

Red, Green, Blue.

This is the colour process used by computer displays. The presence of all three colours as light waves is perceived by the eye as white; the absence of light is perceived as black.

RGB colour is very different from CMYK colour. The amount of colours that can be generated by RGB mode is much larger than those that can be generated by CMYK.

PLEASE NOTE: Although graphics created and saved in RGB display well within electronic processes such as the Web, screen displays, and CD-ROM products, they can never be used in print products. All work submitted in colour must be in CMYK.

 

Bitmap

A bitmap is a graphic file that is made up of square dots (pixels). Scaling these images to larger sizes result in these pixels becoming larger which can make the image look blocky with jagged edges.

 

GIF

Graphic Interchange Format.

Yet another image format type generated specifically for computer use. Its resolution is usually very low (72 dpi, or that of your computer screen), making it undesirable for printing purposes.

 

Jpeg

This is the main format used on the web for photographic mages. Because the Jpeg format uses compression to make smaller files it is unsuitable for digital printing purposes.

 

TIFF

Tagged Image File Format.

A type of image file format where the quality of the image is determined by its resolution or dpi. If the resolution is too low, the image will appear jagged or have a stair-stepped effect. Once the resolution has been determined, either by scanning or by saving in an image-manipulation software package, it cannot be upgraded or increased to improve quality.

 

PDF

Portable Document Format.

The PDF file format is a common internet file format. It’s used for electronic distribution because it faithfully preserves the look and feel of the original document complete with fonts, colours, images, and layout.

To read a PDF file you will need Adobe Reader. This is available as free download here.

 

Dpi & Ppi

Dots per Inch and Pixels per inch.

The resolution of an image or how many pixels are defined in the boundary of a square inch. The more correct term is pixels per inch, however dots per inch is often used instead.
