What is an artwork charge?
An artwork charge normally applies to all orders unless you send your entire imprint in an acceptable electronic file. If you require new artwork or the addition of an Internet address, phone number or other changes to be added to existing artwork, this fee will apply. The artwork fee is $20. Complicated artwork may require an additional fee.
What is an acceptable format for my logo or artwork?
If your project is for embroidery, we can use a .jpg or .tiff file.
If your project is a "digital" job, a .jpg or .tiff file will usually work.
For almost all other jobs, your files should be in
a "vector" .eps format - preferably created in Adobe Illustrator. All
images should be converted to "curves." If your artwork is more than
one color, each color should be in a different layer and all colors should be
included in the note section.
In most cases, if you have hired a professional graphic person to create your logo it would have been created as an .eps file. You can always check with your printer for this file format. Unless you have Adobe Illustrator, you probably will not be able to open the file on your computer. That's ok. You can send it to us and we will furnish you a proof.
Less acceptable formats are .tif files. Rarely are .jpg or .gif files acceptable.
If you are unable to provide us your logo or image in the proper file format, we can convert that for you. A nominal fee will apply.
Please fax a copy of your artwork to our fax number listed in the contact us section.
What is a set up charge, and how does that differ from an art charge?
The set up charge is a fee charged by the manufacturer and involves preparing a plate and the other necessary steps taken to get your job on the press. This fee normally is $35 to $75 - depending upon the vendor. Some of our vendors do not charge a set up charge.
