    Default T-shirt screen resolution

    you can crucify me if this is a stupid question with way too many variables but...
    what resolution does an image need to be for a t-shirt silkscreen?

    I made someone a CD design that they want to make shirts of
    but the art is only 4.5 x 4.5 @ 300 ...
    if I double it up to 9 x 9 @ 150 will it work?
    or 200?
    its fairly simple black and white line art.

    You'll be at 150. Have them burn it on a 160 or lower and the jaggies will disappear.

    cool.
    I'm going to tell them that if the jaggies don't disappear I'll send them
    a 9500 dpi file.
    thanks!
