When printing on colored garments (any shade except white), you will have the option to print with or without an underbase. This is how to make sure your print will not only be nice and bright, but that the colors will be as accurate as possible. This is especially true on darker and more vividly colored garments - sometimes the ink color changes drastically as it mixes with the fabric color. Not sure if you need an underbase or if it's worth the extra cost? No worries - let us know and we'll point you in the right direction. An underbase is treated as an additional color on your print since it requires its own screen.
Imagine there is a t-shirt design with small text. when you zoom in on that text, you'll notice that it loses significant clarity, much like the word "raster" below. Not with vector files! Vector files can be scaled infinitely without any loss of resolution or clarity. This is because they are images built by mathematical formulas that establish points on a grid, whereas raster files are composed of many colored blocks commonly referred to as pixels. The most common types of vector files are .pdf, .ai, .eps, and .svg.
