FREE LOGO CONVERSION: We will convert your one color logo to vector art at no charge for any order over $250.00
We accept artwork in all major commercial graphics programs including: Adobe Illustrator, Corel Draw, Freehand, Quark Express or Photoshop (all in native format-as it was created). We can also accept TIFF, PDF & EPS files. Before submitting any electronic art, please convert all fonts to outline.
Please be advised that scanned, embedded or placed images, JPEG, GIF, DOC, PSD or PICT files, are Bitmap files and cannot be changed, edited or re sized. These file formats are also generally low resolution-- only suitable for viewing on-screen or on the web -- not for printing and cannot be appropriately modified.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Also note, that saving a bitmap file (JPEG, GIF, DOC, PSD, bmp or PICT) images are not usable even if saved as TIFF, PDF or EPS. They are still basically not editable. Saving a bitmap file as an .eps or .ai file does NOT convert it to vector art. It still remains a bitmap, just with another extension. Usually logos were originally created in Adobe Illustrator, Corel Draw or Freehand and then converted to other formats. Try and find the native file. It would usually have one of the following extensions: .ai, .cdr, .fh.

Can I order fewer pieces of an item than what's priced on the site?
Frequently yes, however most suppliers charge a less than minimum fee to do so.
Can I see a proof of my product printed with my artwork before production begins?
Every order includes a free pdf proof with the imprint to size, for your approval before we begin production. To see an actual imprinted product proof there is usually a charge by the supplier of the set-up and product, plus shipping charges and will increase the production time of your order. If you have concerns about your imprint or the product, these are highly recommended.
How can I supply appropriate camera ready artwork?
The minimum quality we accept for camera-ready artwork is a 600-dpi print from a laser printer on flat, white paper. The artwork must be printed out to actual size or larger. A fax is not acceptable for camera ready art. Files with bitmaps must be sent on disk or emailed. See next question.
Can I provide the artwork in a digital format?
Yes. The best formats for us to receive are: PDF (Portable Document Format) CDR (CorelDRAW), EPS (Encapsulated PostScript) or AI (Adobe Illustrator) files in vector format. All fonts must be converted to curves, paths or outlines. Pixelated files such as TIF, BMP, JPG, GIF and PNG are usually not appropriate for print jobs that require printing in spot colors because they can't separate properly for printing.
What if I can only provide a JPG or GIF?
You can email us the file and we can review it for you. As a courtesy we will convert your non vector art to vector art on any order over $250. If your art is more than two colors or the order is less than $300, we can provide you a free estimate for your art conversion.

What do I need to know about printing multiple colors?
When printing more than one color, there are a couple of considerations to keep in mind. Some print methods do a better job than others of "registering" or lining up the imprint colors to each other. Promotional products are printed in a variety of ways, such as pad printed, screen printing, or by die stamping. With any of these methods, imprint colors can move as much as 1/16" in position in relation to other imprint colors. For example products such as balloons and plastic bags, may even require a significant gap between imprint colors. Often we can help compensate by "trapping" or "overprinting" the imprint colors. A "trap" is when a printer spreads a color so that the different colors overlap just a bit. That way if one color moves during printing, you don't end up with the surface color showing through. Another method used to compensate for color registration is to "overprint". Often the darker color can be printed right over the top of the lighter color, avoiding registration issues. Where the colors overlap you may notice some color variations in the imprint colors. Some colors are less noticeable. Some may be quite noticeable.
