If you are using the text-tool to create your artwork, place it inside the artboard. When you are happy with the result, right click on it to pull up a menu. Click on “Create Outlines” from the right click menu options.

Your text block should now be outlined and look similar to this image.

APPLYING CORRECT COLOUR

After converting your text or artwork to outlines, you need to set the right colour space so it will work on all the garment colours in our merch apparel collections. In Adobe Illustrator, go to menu option: Window -> Swatch libraries -> Colour Books -> PANTONE+ Solid Coated

Now you will have a new panel open. In the search bar type: cool gray 9. The search should result in just one colour option to select.
