if its a raster file, I prefer to save as tiff format.  I trust tiff not to muck things up and that does support 16bit color.

liquibyte's version looks quite good.

I think it looks wrong somehow, like the characters have been eaten away. Plus the ground symbol and +/- are missing!

yeah, stuff did disappear from that one.  didn't notice until you just said so.

maybe some parts went away because they were done in slightly different rgb values?  there were a few different shades and I tried combining some, while mapping others to pure black, in a version I was working on.  it still needed work after that and I saw others were working on this and had better results, so I gave up on mine.

My attempt at it

One EPS (zipped) and one PNG both with no background (text is white so it may be hard to read)

Opps didnt realise the text was grey in this version these have grey text instead:

Ok, one last try  :P
Now it has only 2 indexed colors + alpha, if that won't work, something is wrong either with Daves irfanview or gimp on mac I'm using...

Regardless of who's version I use, saving as a transparent files in Irfanview causes outlines around the text and circuit.

If you install inkscape (free) you can open any of the original files. Click Path > Trace bitmap up in the top menu and make sure you select "Colors" is multiple scans. Then you can select what ever colours and scale to any sizes you want. Then export it to the file type you need.

Ketturi has finally nailed it!
Here is the final version, I fixed the size to match the original, and it's transparent.
No artifacts present with either white or black background when viewing.
Thanks!

In attached file you can find the following formats (background is transparent).
.AI (Adobe Illustrator)
.SVG
.EPS
.PNG (200DPI)
.PNG (300DPI)
Original picture was vectorialized with VectorMagic, black background was removed, white letters were changed to the same color in your original picture.

Ok, I've asked Teespring if they can replace the file.

Ah, that's even better, thanks.
But I've already emailed the other one away, so will use this next time and for future variants. Now I have a good base to work from.

please let us know.  I'd much rather have the corrected version if that's possible.

They have updated the file, and it now looks good on the preview, so all fixed it seems.
