Software that can create acceptable file formats
Include a hard copy printout of artwork for reference.
All artwork should include embedded fonts (all text be converted to outlines/paths/curves by the originating program). This eliminates font problems associated with the variety of fonts that have the same name. If this is not possible, include both screen and printer fonts along with your art files.
Art requiring clean up or redrawing and orders for which production ready art is not supplied will incur an art charge. Art charges are billed at $27.00 per hour.
Can I use a specific font in my art?
Yes. Our art professionals have access to 1000s of fonts to provide you with the perfect font choice. If a specific font is used in your artwork, please e-mail the font file (in a true type font, for example, not just the name) to email@example.com . If you are submitting an .EPS or .AI file, please make sure all fonts are outlined/converted to vector format in your artwork file.
Can I Use my own PMS Color?
Yes, we provide PMS color-matching unless otherwise stated. If PMS color-matching is not possible on an item, the closest available color will be selected. One of our graphic design experts can help you select imprint colors for the best presentation of your artwork. For embroidery, we will select the embroidery thread color which most closely matches a specified PMS color. Some additional charges may be incurred for a PMS match. Your Account Representative will advise of this upon order confirmation. Please call 1-866-247-3253 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
