Artwork Specifications

A custom promotional product is a direct reflection upon your company or organization. We want to ensure your corporate identity is crisp, clean and consistent. Although we use state of the art printing processes, the final product will only look as good as the artwork submitted to us. For these reasons, we list our requirements for submitting artwork below.

Convert type to outline, paths or curves, or include necessary fonts.
Include all placed graphic files and placed images as separate linked files and not embedded.

If you are not able to send a file in these formats, we do have a full feature art department which can work with and recreate your jpeg, tiff, pdf and word files.
