Using AI CS6 by the way.



This is just a sample image. I've created this image as a PNG and imported into Illustrator. I've already Image Traced it to a usable vector design and now just need help removing the areas of White, and saving the image for use on t-shirts at


Here is the website's upload criteria if that helps. (Limited to only 3 colors on vectors)

    It will need ungrouped a few times and or expanded. Then you can select the white rectangle and delete it.


    Take care, Mike

    A thing like this came up on this site a few days ago.

    The thing is that process white means NO INK so it really makes no difference if you remove the white or not.

    Imagine you are printing your design on coloured paper. The white bits will then be the colour of the paper.


    Check that your design is ok with Overprint Preview turned on.

    If it is, Fire and Forget.

    Keep in mind, this is with importing a PNG outside of AI. Multiple colors need to be on their OWN layer. e.g. 1 layer for the Grey in my image, and 1 layer for the blue. 2 total.

    Nonsense. Your work flow is all wrong.

    Illustrator’s layers have nothing to do with colour separations.

    Neither do you need to rasterize your file.

    Colour separations can be printed straight out of Illustrator (or Acrobat).
