Our products come in a range of fits based on sport and fabric choice meaning certain fits are more suited to particular garment choices. For example, the Regular fit jackets would allow for several layering options which means it would be a looser fitting garment compared to a Pro fit top which is body contouring fit.
Cut&Sew garments are made from our traditional fabrics, with a range of designs and colour options to meet your needs.* Each garment is made from different panels sewn together to create an eye catching design, with taping and binding elements available to add more colour into your design.
Sublimated garments are named so after the sublimation process of printing directly onto a fabric. This gives you an unlimited amount of colour and pattern options to create a truly unique design. Colours are matched to Pantone Solid Coated, giving a wider range than the standard CMYK options.
*Fabric and colour options subject to availability.
If you are unable to provide Samurai with Pantone or Maderia codes for your logo or sublimated design’s colours, we will work to create as close a colour match as possible for your approval.

logos and artwork
Samurai Sportswear always aims to produce the highest quality products possible, in order to achieve this, it is essential that we receive the correct high quality vectorised artwork in one of the following formats:
• .ai (Adobe Illustrator): This is a vector based file created in Adobe Illustrator and is the preferred format for all decoration as it will produce the highest quality finish for your products
• .eps (Encapsulated Post Script): A true EPS will be a vector based file and can therefore be used in the same way as an Adobe illustrator file to produce a high quality finish
• .pdf (portable document file): A high resolution PDF file is acceptable as long as the original file was created in Adobe Illustrator
Vector graphics use geometric primitives such as points, lines, curves and shapes or polygons which are all based on mathematical equations to represent images in computer graphics.
Unlike JPEG, TIFF or PSD files which are made using pixels, a vector image will never lose quality when you change its size or zoom in or out of it. For this reason, we will need your image to be a vector file if we are using your image for the purpose of sublimation and printing as they always produce the best quality finish possible.
To create your embroidered logo we require a DST file which enables us to embroider your logo onto your chosen garment. We can create a DST file for your approval for a fee if you have never had your logo embroidered. If you are able to provide a DST file, you will also need to supply the colour run which details the running order of the colours used in your logo. Correct thread references are also required.
