ARTWORK/FAQ

What kind of artwork do you need? Vector EPS files are the best. This means line-art created in a program such as Adobe Illustrator. This applies to all promotional products, with the exception of embroidery. For embroidery, a high-resolution JPG file will work.

What if I don't have an EPS? Well, just send us what you have! If we can't open your logo as a vector file, we can supply you with vector art for a reasonable charge. Once you pay for the file to be "vectorized," it's yours forever...no need to pay for this service again! Many other companies require this type of file, too (for example: outdoor signage.) So it's good to have your logo in this format anyway.

What if I don't have any artwork at all? We gladly offer logo design and art design! After a completing a short questionnaire, you are on your way to developing a unique logo that is perfect for your image. (Pricing varies by complexity of the design.) Other art design, such as t-shirt art, is billed hourly and quoted upon request. 

I have a tight budget. What can I get?  This is where we shine! We can provide great options for you to fit any price point. We stay on top of promotions and sales that are going on, and we pass that savings onto you. 

How do I know what size shirt to order? We have a well-stocked showroom with many popular styles available for you to see. We can also help when it comes to ordering for a group. Our sizes range from infant onesies, youth, adult extra small, and 6XL! Size charts are also available for most apparel. 

What is the difference in 1 color and 4 color-process printing? One, two and three color printing is often called "spot colors." One color ink goes on at a time, and the colors are separate and independent of each other--check out our Victory Designs logo above: it is brown and green, 2 "spot colors." Four-color process printing is the "high-end" so to speak...think of a color photograph. All the colors of the spectrum can be attained with cyan, magenta, yellow and black (CMYK.) This is the most expensive way to print because four plates (or set-ups) are needed to print all four colors. Usually full-color process is best for a high quantity job, since the set up charges are absorbed into the cost of the order. This is true for most promotional products as well as screen printing and commercial printing.

I really don't know where to start. Can you help? Of course! For a give-away, it is helpful for us to know your target audience and the price range you want to stay in. All our estimates are free, so we can supply you with a variety of ideas! 

Will I get to see my order before it's printed? Yes! We provide PDF proofs on all promotional products and screen printing, and sew-outs on embroidery before the job goes to production. Once your approval is given, we roll with it! 

How long do items take? Production times vary. An estimated time is listed on your quote. Since screen printing is done in-house on our new press, normal production time is 5-6 days from proof approval. All other production items are quoted individually.

But I need something right away!  You would be surprised what we can do in a short amount of time. Rush items can often be turned in 1-3 days. Don't worry...give us a call!
