Artwork Requirements

What we will need from you to get started!

EPS (ENCAPSULATED POSTSCRIPT)

Is the preferred file type for most promotional products branding is a Vector Illustrator EPS or PDF files.

VECTORISED ARTWORK

(.eps, .ai files)

These are ideal files for the correct printing and reproduction of your logo on promotional products. We do what we can to reillustrate logos when we receive basic files. But it is time consuming task, and reillustrating your logo costs from $85 to $250 to reillustrate depending on its complexity. The bonus is that we will then give you a copy of the file you've paid for which will come in useful if you ever want to do any printing, signage or design work with your logo, or any other branding other than your promotional products order.

JPEG (.JPG) FILES (JOINT PHOTOGRAPHS EXPERTS GROUP)

Files with the .jpg extension are acceptable for embroidery or promotional products such as hats or promotional caps, but they have to be reillustrated for printing and engraving of metallic promotional products. A high res .jpg file can also be used for printing digital or offset printing jobs, though it is not a preferred file type for most logo reproduction on promotional products.

PDF FILES

(Portable Document Format) are becoming the industry standard for offset and digital printing of promotional merchandise and promotional products. They have only limited use for printing promotional products. A .PDF file is fine for embroidery but we have to reillustrate a .pdf logo if printing or engraving is required.

PMS (PANTONE MATCHING SYSTEM)

(Portable Document Format) are becoming the industry standard for offset and digital printing of promotional merchandise and promotional products. They have only limited use for printing promotional products. A .PDF file is fine for embroidery but we have to reillustrate a .pdf logo if printing or engraving is required. Promotional Companies, Web Designers and Businesses also rely on PMS shades when they need to select, match and control colour. A printer's customer may request a particular shade, using a PMS identifying number taken from a PMS colour chart to ensure colour accuracy. Click on the colour image to download the chart guide

PMS (PANTONE MATCHING SYSTEM)

A colour matching system that has a unique number assigned to more than 500 different colours and shades and is the standard for the printing industry, it offers various shades of ink colour created by printing specified proportions and densities of primary colour on paper. For example, a particular shade of blue may be 50% cyan and 5% magenta on a white surface. 



EMBROIDERY

Embroidery is a process that utilises automated industrial embroidery machines to apply digitised logos to many different forms of products like Bags, Clothing , Caps, Towels etc and is costed according to the stitch count and not colours - so it does not matter how many colours appear in your logo, you will not be charged per colour as is the case in printing. Most Logos are generally about 7000 -9000 stitches.
