Art File Requirement
For the best result, we prefer the original art file format. The file you send should have a resolution of at least 350 dpi. The file types we accept include .tiff, jpg, .psd, .ai, and .eps.
The imprint area is the area you specify where we will print your artwork.
The imprint size refers to the dimensions allowed on the item in question. Imprint size varies depending on the size and shape of the item, as well as the print method used.
Our stock colors are the available printing colors that we carry in-house. They can be used free of charge, but if your logo requires special colors that are not in our stock list, we can still print it for you for $29.00 per shade.
PMS is also known as Pantone Matching System, an industry color matching system primarily used in printing. With a corresponding Pantone color for each shade in your logo, we can ensure that all of your branded materials match exactly. The Pantone System usually contains a number and letter combination for each color.
If PMS color is not provided, we will automatically prepare the proofs using our stock PMS colors. PMS color match is not available for the Four-Color Process, Hot Foil, or Flexo printing methods.
Embroidery printing uses a different guide for color matching. Exact PMS matching is not guaranteed and your logo color is converted to the nearest equivalent thread shade color for your artwork.
Depending on the product, we normally keep proofs for between 1 and 2 years. You should also save a copy of your artwork for future reference.
Deboss is a printing technique that uses a metal mold of your logo. With heat and pressure, we form a pressed impression of your artwork.
This is a printing technique that uses physical printers instead of screens to transfer the color and print. This is usually used for a multi-colored logo. This form of printing is also referred to as CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow, and black), full-color printing, color burst, and 4-color process printing.
Dye sublimation printing is used to print on polyester based materials or fabrics with special formulated inks that has pigment suspended in a liquid solvent (usually water).
This printing technique uses metal molded to the shape of your logo. Heat and pressure are then used to form a rising impression of your artwork.
Needle and thread are used to stitch a design onto fabrics and apparel.
Hot Foil Printing
This printing technique uses foil and heat to leave your artwork on the item.
This is a dry printing process in which a roll of pigment or metallic foil material is transferred onto the item using heat and pressure.
This printing technique uses a printer to transfer intense heat to make the logo stick on the material it is pressed on.
This is a branding method where your design is marked or etched into surfaces like glass, metal, or aluminum using a high powered laser.
This is a printing technique that uses mesh stencil to transfer ink through it and onto the surface of the product.
This is a technique that involves the use of silicone pads that are used to transfer ink to the surface of the product.
