GRAPHIC & PRINT GUIDELINES FILE PREPARATION ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________ PRODUCT TEMPLATES Graphic templates can be found in the "Graphic Info" tab on each product page of our website. Graphic dimensions are subject to change without notice. REQUIREMENTS Documents must be print ready and submitted at 100% fi nal size, with no additional manipulation necessary; additional charges may apply if these terms are not met. Before submitting artwork, convert all text to outlines, paths or curves to ensure exact duplication of type style. Alterations to submitted artwork will result in a necessary proof approval, which may delay production time. We reserve the right to delay or reject any order based on the quality of the artwork received. We also reserve the right to make slight alterations to your fi le to adapt to our printing process. Some thin lines or small shapes may not reproduce at the size or thickness submitted. Multicolor close-registration prints are not available on all products. Please see Graphic & Print Guidelines on page 186 for specifi cs regarding each print method. ARTWORK SUBMISSION & PROOFING ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________ UPLOADING ARTWORK For the fastest and most effi cient artwork processing, please submit art via our website. If the website is not an option for you, art fi les under 10MB may be emailed to our graphics department. Please keep in mind that our factory will not be held responsible for any server malfunction that affects the receipt of your fi les. ELECTRONIC PROOFS Proofs are provided electronically in PDF format. These depict a low-resolution representation of the fi nal product and should not be used for fi nal color output or image resolution. Additional proofs may incur a proof revision charge of $10.00(G) each, plus additional design time. Proof approvals must be submitted via our online proofi ng system before production will begin. All proof approvals received after noon CST will be counted as received on the next business day. Production time begins after the proof approval is received. GRAPHIC DETAILS ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________ ERRORS We will not be held responsible for errors resulting from copy that was received or approved incorrectly. TYPESETTING Our normal art setup fee includes up to three lines of copy. If a specifi c font is required, the name of that font must be noted on your purchase order. If we do not have the desired font, the type will be re-set using a standard font or one that matches the desired font as closely as possible. CHANGE OF COPY CHARGE Whether for a new or repeat order, any request for an addition, deletion or change to the copy in a vector artwork fi le will result in an $10.00(G) Change of Copy Charge. REPEAT ORDERS There are no setup fees for exact repeat orders within two years of original order. Any artwork older than two years must be resubmitted. Proof approvals are required on all repeat orders. ***ARTWORK THAT HAS BEEN ALTERED IN ANY WAY CANNOT BE CONSIDERED FOR A REPEAT ORDER*** COLOR ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________ COLOR POLICY All of our products are printed CMYK (process color). If your artwork requires a specifi c color, please request a test grid (see below). WE CANNOT GUARANTEE COLOR MATCHING. TEST GRID* If you are concerned about a specifi c color, we suggest ordering a test grid. Test grids are printed samples of your requested PMS (spot) color and its surrounding color family (e.g. Reds, Blues, etc.) These test grids contain the CMYK (process color) equivalent of PMS colors. The vast majority of PMS colors cannot be accurately represented in a CMYK printing process. Please state on your purchase order that you are requesting a test grid and the specifi c PMS color(s) you are trying to achieve. MATCH PRINT* A match print is a ¼ scale print of an entire art fi le. This is the most accurate way to represent an entire printed piece, since it will mimic the color and appearance of the piece as a whole, excluding any fi nishing. Please state on your purchase order that you are requesting a match print so it will be recorded on your order. TEST STRIPS* For the most detailed representation of full-size print quality and image resolution, we recommend requesting a test strip. An 8" x 20" section of the art is printed at 100%. Please state on your purchase order that you are requesting a test strip so it will be recorded on your order. *The fi rst test grid, match print and test strip available at no charge, customer to pay freight. Each additional test grid, match print or test strip is $25.00(G) plus freight, expedited charges apply. 185 Your selected color CMYK Process Test Grid Example Test Strip Example An 8" x 20" cross section of your actual artwork printed at 100% print size.
