Artwork & Design
At Champion System, we have a couple of options when it comes to design.
We offer free design support if you know what you want your design to be, and you’d like to direct the design process. We have in-house technical designers who will help you get your design from draft to factory proofs, ready to be printed.
If you just can’t come up with any ideas or you do have an idea and you want a seasoned pro to take charge of your design concepts, we offer professional custom design services through Pfaltzgraphic. They will create unique design options for you to choose from and apply the chosen design to the apparel you’d like to order.
Either way, at Champion System, we understand it’s essential to have the right design.
Our customers send us all types of logos and artwork to use in custom design. Unfortunately, not all formats will print on your apparel well.
Most logos pulled from other places, such as websites or business cards, are of a low resolution. Meaning, they won’t print clearly on your appparel. To make sure your logos are crisp and clear, we need one of the following file types:
- Adobe Illustrator – AI files
- Encapsulated Post Script – .eps files
- High resolution – over 300 dpi – .pdf files
Why do we need these types of files? These files are referred to as Vector format files. Vector files can be resized and manipulated, to whatever size we need, without making them look blurry when printed.

When you look at colors on a screen, they can change based off of what screen you’re using. To make sure the color printed is your color, Champion System uses the industry standard: Pantone Matching System. Every color on your design will be matched to a Pantone, so be sure to take a look at the Pantone Color System to choose your colors.
Please note, our color chart online is a rough way to choose colors, because, again, the shade and tone may vary depending on the screen. To be absolutely sure, a Pantone Color Formula Book is recommended and can be found in most art and print stores.
