Artwork is considered "camera ready" when it can be used for prepress and printing without the need for adjustments that may incur added fees or result in delays. When supplying art, please refer to the following guidlines. If you have any questions, please call us. We have artists on staff to help you with anything you might need. Artwork fees are $50.00 per hour.
Vector art requirements Vector artwork files must be saved to at least Adobe Illustrator CS3. All text fields must be converted to curves or outlines to prevent font substitutions. Include a printed proof of your design with color designations. All objects must have at least a 1pt line thickness for proper print quality. All images must be sent at 100% desired size. If the vector file includes any placed raster images (such as scans, jpegs, etc), those images must meet or exceed our requirements for resolution when rendered at 100%. They must be attcahed with and not embedded in the original vector file please.
Raster art requirements We will accept raster artwork saved in a .tif, .eps., .pdf, or .psd format in up to Adobe Photoshop CS5 format. For our purposes, all raster files must be saved at 100% of the final print size with a resolution of at least 300 dpi. Scans supplied in color or possibly greyscale images might need additional converting at an additional artwork fee.
Non usable artwork files Jpegs are most often useless but can be replicated for use in screen printing for an hourly art fee of $50.00 per hour. Excel, Word, Outlook, and Power Point files are non-usable , unless name lists are being used. Please separate first and last names in separate columns in this case.
All jobs are unique and there are multiple variables to determine price. Please contact us so we can provide you with pricing options for your project.

Standard turn-around for print-ready artwork is 10-14 business days. If your order requires a quick turn-around, please let us know so we do our best to accommodate your request.
