Things we need to begin the design process:
- Drawing or picture with overall dimensions
- How many imprint colors.
- Quantity Needed
- Your artwork needs to be PC formatted. We use CorelDrawx5 or Adobe Illustrator CS5 or earlier versions. Include in the artwork all files (fonts, scales, etc.) that are to be used when creating your artwork. Digital artwork submitted should be Vector Art. Raster Art can be provided but may need some in-house clean up at a charge of $25.00/ Half hour. To assure we can accurately view your art, please send a JPG or PDF file along with your vector art.
Forms of Artwork
The artwork we accept falls into two seperate categories:
Raster Artwork: Raster artwork is an image created of many pixels. This results in artwork that is NOT editable, scalable, or able to be separated for spot color reproduction. Common Raster file formats include: .jpg .bmp .psd .tiff .gif
Vector Artwork: Vector artwork is an image created of points and paths. This results in artwork that is scalable, editable and able to be separated for spot color reproduction. Common Vector file formats include: .ai .eps .cdr .pdf.

PMS Color Matching
The following 21 colors are standard ink colors:
PMS Color match is $18.75 (V) and is only guaranteed on a white base. PMS-matched colors may be applied to clear or colored surfaces but the final color outcome may vary.
The text that we accept falls under two distinct formats:
Live Text– Live text is still in a text format in the artwork’s original program and can still be spell checked and corrected. Live text requires the fonts used in order to be displayed and printed correctly.
Converted Text (preferred)– Outlines/paths/curves are vector artwork and as such can no longer be spell checked. However they do not require fonts in order to be displayed or printed correctly.
We ship in 10-12 working days after receiving all paper work, PO, art approval and credit approval. The production lead time starts the day all artwork approvals are received. Specific ship dates must be confirmed with our Customer Service Department. If a proof is needed, production time will begin after the proof has been approved and returned. Additional or extended processes will increase standard production times. This includes materials that require extended processes.
