Our AWARD Winning t shirt design Department!
VISUAL COMMUNICATIONS DEPARTMENT
At Choice Image, Inc.,we pride ourselves at offering more then the typical "graphic design" clipart & typesetting offered by all of the other Denver screen print shops. While we do that too, our staff is skilled in design theory, color theory and full blown illustration. Not only do we not charge more for this... our charges of only $35.00 an hour are half that of many of our competitors' clipart services.
Designing for imprinted apparel & tshirt printing offers a unique challenge as most other forms of reproduction always print onto a white piece of paper. We've learned to use this colored and dark garment substrate to our advantage. With our years of experience creating & reproducing images specifically for t-shirts, textiles and clothing, we've mastered the "WOW" effect and apply it to every job we create. So whether we are creating it for you or doing the mechanical color separations for your supplied image, you're sure to get the best quality possible.
"Over the years we have become known as the shop that prints t-shirts the other shops said could not be done or would be too expensive."
We offer a wide variety of services. Among a few are:
Logo design creation & branding
Typography, typesetting and page layout.
Vector conversion of internet Jpegs
Photo retouch & photo colorization
Image and sketch clean up.

We discussed this with the client and came up with the concept during our initial meeting.
The idea was to print a three color screen print on black tees for his concert sales merchandise.
This quick comp was made to help the client visualize what we were going to do
and what we needed from him. He sent use some quick photographs from his
cell phone.. the below image is the resulting print with only an hour and one
half charge. This is a three color production ready silk screen print mechanical
file.... ready for production.
Custom three color t-shirt print.

Killer tee shirt logos
We use Apple Macintosh computer systems to create custom shirts. These are completely compatible with any graphics files in any format from any computer systems running any OS like Unix, Lines, BE, Mac, OSX and Even Microsoft's Windows... as long as the file format is in a standard computer graphics extension.
This means we can use files like, jpeg, gif, png, eps, ai, swf, pdf . We cannot open or use files given a file extension from software we do not have or use..... this has only been an issue for people creating artwork , logos and layouts in Microsoft Publisher...
In short, we do not have Publisher software and therefore cannot open or use . Pub files!
In short, Microsoft Word should we used for words only, text and letters. It is not an art, or layout program!
In most cases, our trained staff can create a custom tee shirt image in less time then most people can compile clip art. It is usually more cost effective to come speak to our staff about creating a custom logo then to pay them to correct a file that is incorrect.
Another common mistake when supplying your own custom artwork is to attempt to do graphics in Adobe Photoshop. Much like with the program Word being for words, Photoshop is for photographs and photographic type works. Attempting to mix type or typography with halftones or doing solid image like those in logos will have disastrous affects!
Part of what makes Choice Image custom t-shirts different and more extraordinary then those from the common t-shirt shop or screening store, is our idea that garment or shirt color should be taken into consideration prior to starting the artwork. Ink mixing with the garment and other inks can be used as a color theory to enhance the image on the shirt. We take every aspect of the silk screen process from screen imaging and computer file formats and ink mixing on press into consideration prior to starting work.
Our staff is happy to create custom work from scratch, hand drawn and painted to give it that non -computer look. We can customize any photo to look like a drawing or sketch to a water color or oil painting.

This is a simple two color print. Using screen tints and halftones can create a sublte look that really makes your message pop off the shirts.
