*NOTE: Color(s) in catalog are printed only and may not be an exact color match to the original product or ink color(s). The color(s) viewed on your computer screen may not be an exact color match to the original product or ink color(s) due to varying computer monitor calibration. Additionally, what you print on your ink jet or color laser printer may not match the intended product or imprint color(s).

-Please use CMYK or Pantone Colors for accurate color matching
*Avoid very fine lines, both in type and illustrations

GRAPHICS:
Any bitmap graphics (photos) that are part of your design must be 300 dpi or greater or at the size it will be printed. If your graphic art does not comply with these requirements, quality may be an issue.

*NOTE:  web graphics are usually low resolution bitmaps and will very seldom work well for printing. Please contact us with any questions on photos or Photoshop art.  

ART CHARGES:
In some instances, an art charge will be incurred if we determine the art will take longer than the allotted time for re-creation. We will inform you of this charge before any artwork is re-created.
