deleted my question from Chat

Here is what I had posted before seeing this in the Chat forum:

Might want to add that people should save a non compressed image of their design submissions on their machine in the event that they win, right? I always save something in PSD, BMP, TIFF before saving it as a JPEG myself. I would hate to see the winner be someone with a medium compression JPEG at 72 DPI their only file, heh.

Just a thought.

Here's my thoughts:
I worked in a screen-printing place for a while as an artist and here are our requirements:
left front "pocket" - usually 3"x3", no larger than 4"x4"
full back- no larger than 14"w x16"h

We accepted high res (300 dpi) files ONLY TIFFs, EPS, native Illustrator, Photoshop, or Freehand files. JPEGs should be avoided as a final submission because they are a lossy format and you lose detail, depending on complexity of design. All fonts must be converted to paths or outlines.

Maybe submit a 72 dpi sample for consideration, then ask the winner for final artwork at actual size at high resolution? We always faxed or e-mailed low res versions to clients prior to production.

Other considerations- colors (solid colors are best, gradations are really hard to replicate, but shades of 1 color can be done with halftones), white on dark colored shirts requires 2 hits, meaning more money, photgraphs can be "fake" 4 color processed.

Any questions? feel free to contact me.
