Artwork Layer

Your regular artwork layer, where you place your design.

Please fill the entire page with your design.

Quiet Zones

Respect the (Blue) quiet zones. Fabric stretches and shrinks (different amounts in different directions) during the production process so there is less accuracy compared to printing on paper. The templates may appear unusually large or proportioned. This is to allow for the stretch/shrinkage of the material.
 
For best results, keep all important elements well within the quiet zone.

The Quiet Zone Guide should not appear on the "Print Ready PDF".

Visible Area (approx)

Shows the approximate hemmed and stitched visible area of the finished item. This layer also indicates any folds or bends of the hardware that affect the visible area of the finished product.

The Trim Guide should not appear on the "Print Ready PDF".

Finishing Layer

Contains a 2pt keyline page frame and a red or blue guide line on one edge  to assist with our cutting template and to indicate the front and reverse file. This layer must be present on your PDF.
