Terms and Conditions
The most common method we use to imprint is silk imprint. Pad imprint is used for more difficult logos or large quantity orders. Some of our products can be debossed or laser engraved with no additional charge. For full color imprint, we can use proxy dome or water process imprint.
Imprint Placement and Sizing
Layout of all copy for imprint is as specified by purchase order. Maximum imprint size will be used unless otherwise directed.
Virtual proof via e-mail or fax proof is provided 24 hours after receiving of artwork at no charge. A virtual proof is a digital representation of the finished product and not exact. It confirms the logo position, location, and PMS color codes. Screen resolutions vary, and the image may look distorted when sent electronically. If paper proof is faxed, the product and logo may appear distorted or jagged. Production time begins the day after the virtual proof approval and all other requested documentation is received. If changes need to be made, please inform us by writing, a second virtual proof will be sent once the artwork has been changed. Please note that delays in approving the artwork may result in delays in the delivery/shipping date.
PMS color numbers must be submitted with all artwork. A PMS color book is recommended when choosing colors, as colors may vary due to computer screens and/or printers. All colors must be set to 100% opacity and fill. Different shades of the same color are printed as separate colors and will incur additional color charges.
PMS matching is a manual process; therefore, all color matches are a close approximation. Final imprint may be slightly different and may vary among individual pieces. Roughly half of Pantone’s swatch library cannot be matched 100%, especially colors such as bright greens/blues and heavily saturated colors (i.e. Reflex Blue).
Acceptable Artwork Formats
Please send your artwork to your sales rep.
Vector art is artwork created using points, lines, curves, and polygons based on mathematical equations. Acceptable files include eps (encapsulated Postscript), ai (Adobe Illustrator), and cdr (Corel Draw). All artwork should be color separated and scaled to size, and font must be in curves/outlines. Precise details as to PMS color numbers, crop marks, and placement should be noted on the Purchase order and the art file.
