Artwork and Guidelines for submitting artwork
Please submit all information for your imprint instructions at time of order placement. You can choose to upload your art files and submit your art instructions along with your order or you can email us your art files and instructions to firstname.lastname@example.org. Remember that which ever method you choose we will email a proof for approval before we begin production.
We strongly suggest that when uploading your own art files that they are "camera ready" high resolution files. As to provide the best quality imprint, an absolute minimum of 300 dpi at 100% size is needed but 600 dpi is preferred. An additional charge may be added to your order depending on the time needed to make your artwork 'printready'. Our customer service will contact you prior to incurring such charge. Note that the added work involved in cleaning up any artwork will also add to production time.
An editable version of all files including linked and placed images must be submitted. Convert all fonts to outlines or include all screen and printer fonts. Compressed files must be self-extracting, although compression is not recommended. Please send digital files no less than 300 dpi at 100%, higher resolution is strongly recommend for a better imprint.
