What is not Artwork

Faxes, Business Cards, Letterhead, Hat, Shirts, Patches, Napkins, etc. However, we can work with these items to create your artwork and we bill at $120.00 per hour for this service.



We will attempt to provide one free e-mailed proof with every custom job. While many folks rely on viewing more files on handheld devises, I highly recommend that you view the art approval on a computer screen for better ability to sign off on the proof.



We use the standard PMS color system for color matching. While an exact color match is never guaranteed, we strive to make the colors match as close as possible. We use paints and not inks and they have different characteristics and some colors can just not be matched perfectly. A $65.00 per color matching fee will be incurred for specific color matches.



When your order has been submitted and your artwork evaluated by the art department, you will receive an e-mail confirmation. Photographs must be a minimum of 300 DPI and artwork in a vector format to avoid additional charges. The quality of your finished products, are directly related to the artwork that you provide. Please make every effort to provide us with a high quality digital file. Artwork requiring additional work is subject to additional charges.
