|Art Prep charges:
May apply to your job, please call for details.
Billable art time includes but is not limited to: color separation, artwork imageclean-up, scanning, typesetting, or converting artwork to spot colors.
Ink color change:
$10 per color change, per order. For example, if you have a single-color print and you wish to silkscreen 50 pieces in black and 50 pieces in white, you would need to
pay one $10 color change fee.
A 50% deposit is required to start any custom work. The deposit will be 50% of your total order cost. Custom orders can be prepaid in advance by credit card to avoid
paying a deposit, and will expedite your order.
Once the deposit is paid, our art department can send you a proof via fax or email at no additional cost.
7-14 days is typical. This figure may vary depending upon press schedules and art time, if required. Jobs are taken on a first come, first served basis, and we do not
offer an expedited price list.
We can't be responsible for time lost due to missing information or being unable to contact the customer. Be sure to plan ahead to account for press time and shipping!
Submitting digital files:
You can avoid art charges and expedite your order by sending us files that are ready for film output. Such files and artwork MUST be sent to us complete and ready to
print "as-is". If your files require additional work to prepare for printing, (such as trapping, font substitution, or color converting) standard art prep fees will apply.
We can accept files on floppy disks, Zip disks, USB "thumb drives", or CD/DVD-ROM. We can also accept digital files via email, however it is strongly recommended that
you contact us via email before sending your files so that we can review your submissions and avoid long downloads of files we can't use.
Preferred file formats are Adobe PhotoShop or Adobe Illustrator. We can also accept CorelDraw files, if exported to .EPS format. PDF files are acceptable if all fonts are
embedded and artwork is editable. Simple GIF, or JPEG files are perfectly fine for our use as copy templates, however they cannot be used to create color separations
and art fees will apply.
File formats we can't use under any circumstances include word processing documents such as Microsoft Word, presentation documents such as Power Point, or any
page-layout documents such as QuarkXpress, In Design, or Page Maker.
