    Default how well would this work on a screen print t shirt?

    I vectored my lineart and I don't think it should be a problem, I just wanted to get some opinions if there is something else I need to do before I send this to the screen printer?ART GALLERY | Facebook

    Nope. Non-vector lineart also works.

    My t-shirt printer wouldn't have a problem with that.

    The printer would definitely have to use ink to print that.

    Have you ever seen a t-shirt?

    I was just wondering because last time I made a design for a fellow, I sent it to the screenprinter, and they added a huge $100 charge for "adjustments, and color separations" even though all the colors were on different layers and easily accessible. I think he was ripping off my client?

    As someone who usually gets the job of making these adjustments and separations to what is sent over as print ready art I doubt he or probably she was ripping anyone off. I like your e mail address.

    is it pretty hard to do? if I had a colored picture like this, where each color is on it's own separate layer, and I took each layer individually into illustrator and hit "live trace" to make it a vectored image for each color, isn't that how you do it? or is there more that needs to be done once you bring it back to photoshop and line it up for the printer? is there more involved than that?

    Nope, not that easy, not that hard just time consuming. Helps to be involved in the printing side of the business in order to see what works.
