The Printing Process

Color Management

Adaptive Textiles offers spot color matching services for color separated files. Spot color matching includes a printed swatch on the fabric of your choice showing around 200 neighboring colors for precise selection under your own lighting. Color matching for tonal images is also available for an hourly fee.

In order to match your spot colors or tonal images, we will need a physical color reference. Due to the variations in monitors and computer settings, we are unable to match colors from an electronic image.

We also offer full-spectrum color catalogs printed on the fabric of your choice that can be used to specify the print colors in your design.

File Preparation

We accept several file formats. Designs originating in vector format can be sent as Adobe Illustrator files, PDF files, or EPS files. Designs originating in raster format can be sent as flattened TIF or PSD files, with a minimum resolution of 300 DPI, saved at the scale it should be printed. Please clip continuous patterns to single repeats. Use LAB or RGB color modes (no CMYK, grayscale, or bitmap). Color separated files should be indexed up to 16 colors.

Files under 10MB can be emailed to design@adaptivetextiles.com, along with printing instructions. Files larger than 10MB can be sent via a file transfer service such as www.wetranfser.com or www.dropbox.com. Send confirmation of file transfer, the file name, and printing instructions to design@adaptivetextiles.com.
