Artwork Information

What graphic file type should I send you?

Acceptable files in either Mac or PC formats. Art files must be created in Adobe Illustrator 9.0,CorelDraw or lesser versions. All CorelDraw files must be saved as an AI file EPS. All files must be saved as EPS and all text converted to outline. EPS format files provide superior reproduction quality allowing images to be resized with no loss of sharpness or detail.

What if I want a specific color match imprinted?

Most of our decoration methods offer the opportunity to closely match the imprint color to a specific requirement. Our customers who require specific matches provide us with a PMS color number of each special color in their artwork. PMS stands for Pantone Matching System. Please note that in most cases , on most printing methods, there is a $49.00 charge per color for this service as inks need to be carefully blended to achieve a close match to your color. This charge is also applicable to reorders. If your logo is to be embroidered, we will select a thread which most closely matches your PMS color and you will have the opportunity to see this choice when you approve your "sew out".

Artwork with Text

We recommend that all text be converted to outlines when possible. If not, all fonts, printer fonts and screen fonts must be included with art and files that contain curved copy. Mac versions of the above software must have text converted to outline since our systems are PC based and cannot use Mac fonts. Please note that the smallest ext size that can be imprinted is typically around 6-8 pt. with some exceptions, for embroidery letter should be non-serif and at least 2/16" to ¼" in height. It is often necessary to modify or drop text entirely for small imprint areas.

What if I don't have artwork?

The following artwork is not considered Camera Ready: Photographs, slides, transparencies, negative stats or films that need to be reversed to positive, halftone art that needs to be resized, low resolution laser printed artwork of less than 1200 dpi, photocopies, faxed art, letterhead, business cards, Web images or any other art that needs to be touched up, color separated, or multi color art to be made one color or otherwise improved. Stats, PMTs or computer scans of the above are not considered camera ready.

Remember, artwork should never get in the way of doing a promotion. If you can't find art that meets our electronic submittal requirements, we can always assist at our reasonable rates. A proof will be provided for you to review.

Single Color Artwork

We prefer Adobe Illustrator files, however we can use .jpg or .tiff files if their resolution is 600 dpi or higher at the size of the imprint area. The logo should be black on a white background. Web images are 72 dpi and are not acceptable. If your item is to be embroidered we can use a web graphic.

Multiple Color Artwork

Send only original, native vector, EPS files. We can not accept art files from the following Mac or PC platforms: BMP, Photoshop EPS, JPG, GIF, PICT, or TIFF. Do not attempt to save these files in an acceptable format. These file formats are generally low resolution - only suitable for viewing on screen - not for printing and cannot be appropriately modified. If your item is to be embroidered we can use a low quality graphic.

If you have any other questions, feel free to contact our art department and we'll walk you through it. Remember, it might be a bit of hassle now, but once we have it on file, you'll never have to deal with it again.
