Art Specifications:
Charges for art, typesetting, or color separations will be quoted by our staff. We accept files in CorelDraw, Illustrator, and InDesign. Vector artwork is preferred. Acceptable raster file formats are: bmp, jpg, psd, pdf, or tiff, but may incur an art charge. When applicable, send fonts or convert text to curves/outlines to avoid substitutions. All submitted art should have a copy sent along for verification purposes. Artwork can be e-mailed to (Sales@
Line Strokes and Borders
All borders must have a minimum thickness of 0.05”. Hairline (approx. 0.0035”) is not recommended for the etching process as the detail starts to break down. The legibility of fonts are affected differently if you are etching the background and leaving raised letters, versus etching the detail. Heavier, bolder fonts should be used when etching away the background, and fonts that are curvy or calligraphy based should be avoided.
Proofs and Pre-Production Samples
No charge for first proof. Email for price and delivery if pre-production samples are needed.
Imprinted Products (Etched, Screen Printed, Sublimated, UV/Digital Printed): 10 business days.
