Artwork & Design
At Champion System, if you have your design concept or draft ready, we have in-house designers who will help you get your design from draft to finished factory proofs, ready to be printed.
If you’re looking for someone who can take your ideas, whether it’s a sketch drawing, picture or photo, and turn them into a design that’ll get noticed everywhere you go, we have professional creative assistance services as an option.
Either way, at Champion System, we understand it’s essential to have the right design. Plus, we know if you look good, you perform well (that’s how it works, right?).
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.
