Design Guidelines

Let’s guarantee your kit turns heads when you’re flying down the road. Check out our design guidelines for helpful tips and standards to ensure you’re just as happy with the look as you are the fit.

Logos, Graphics and Images

Want to add a logo, graphic, or image to your custom cycling kit or jersey? We can work our magic as long as the art you’re sharing can be scaled without becoming blurry or pixelated. Here’s a little guidance to ensure you’re picking the highest quality image:

Vector

Our preferred format is vector files, such as .ai, .eps, or .pdf. These files retain their clarity and resolution when enlarged, meaning everyone will know who you’re representing.

Hi-Res

We accept high resolution files such as .jpg, .psd, .png, or .tiff. However, it needs to be large. Helpful tip: Your file should be at least 1 MB in size.

Low-Res

Unfortunately, lo-res images aren’t going to deliver the design quality that you’re seeking. If you found the image online, it’s probably too small for your jersey. Ask your organization for a higher resolution.

Design Tips

Colors

We use a digital printing process called full-dye sublimation, which broadens our color palette and translates to infinite design possibilities for you. Keep in mind that colors may print differently on fabric than they appear on paper. We’ll always do our best to match your selection, but sometimes, the color will be slightly different. Ask your customer service rep for guidance.

Logo Usage

Don’t forget to obtain written permission from your organization, university, or team before we begin the design process. Logos should be provided in a vector format, such as an .ai, .eps or .pdf file to ensure high print quality. Added bonus: The Hincapie Sportswear logo will appear on your clothing as shown in our design templates.

Fonts

If you’re including text outside of a logo or graphic, share the font name with your customer service rep so our designers can hunt it down or come up with the best possible match.

Design Templates

Before using our design templates, review our custom collections with your customer service rep to identify the kit that best fits your riding style. After you’ve found your match, download a design template and begin using your imagination. We’ll work with you to ensure you’ve designed the perfect cycling kit. Of course, if you’d rather leave the design work to us, our team is ready for the project.
