First and foremost if you don't understand don't worry we can help.
Common questions:

• Q. Can I send a .jpg, .gif file for art?
• A: Yes only for viewing. These files are usually lower resolution and will not reproduce well at all. We need a higher res. file like .tif or .psd. These files should be sent at a resolution of 300+ at actual size.

• Q: I want a 2 or 3 color design. Can I send a .tif or .psd. 
• A: Yes for viewing purposes only. Art for 2 or 3 color will require it be created in a vector based program. Raster images can only be separated as 4 color process.

• Q: I'm not sure what I need to do

Important Art Reminders:

• Convert all fonts to paths, outlines or curves. (Text converted to paths can no longer be edited as text.)
• Multiple color jobs should be created using spot color mode rather than process color mode.
• Include all EPS and Tiff files used in creating your document.
• Do not email files larger than 3 meg. Large files should be compressed by using Winzip  or saved to a zip disk than mailed or shipped to us.
• When creating artwork, remember that our printing process may require the "trapping" of colors on multi-color jobs.

If possible, send proofs of color separations for multiple color jobs.
Please do not send an original file. Make a copy before sending.

Important facts to know about sending artwork.

Because of the many various products we sell, the specific art requirements vary on some items. Over the years we have found that vector (line) art works best for most products.
Adobe Illustrator, Corel Draw and Freehand work well for saving and exporting vector art.

Remember, these are the best ways of sending us artwork. If for some reason you can't get the artwork to us in one of these formats we can work out other options. If you have any questions at all about art requirements just call or email us. We are very interested in your business and will try to be as helpful as possible.
Most jobs will require at least some minimal form of art/setup. This is a one time fee that covers color separating, creating traps, film positives, etc. The closer the supplied art is to a print ready state, the cheaper the one time set up fee will be. Our art/setup charge is $45.00 per hour. Once we see the provided art work, we can give quotes for art/setup. All we can do is estimate the art/setup fee until we see the art.
