A Guide to Artwork Submission

Artwork Qualtity Logo Size No Logo

Unless you’re a graphic designer or graduated college with an art degree, you may not be 100% comfortable submitting artwork for your promotional products. With so much to think about, it’s difficult to know where to start. But don’t worry! We’re here to offer valuable advice on sending us your unique design.

Here are questions to ask yourself to ensure you have the best artwork ready for submission:

Do I Have High Quality Artwork?

It may be difficult to tell if your artwork is in the right format for submission. You have several options for sending your logo artwork, with some transferring more clearly than others when on screen.

The most important part is to know your file’s extension.

If your file has .jpg, .png, .pdf, .ai, or .eps at the end when it’s saved, then we will accept your artwork. Although .jpg and .pdf are likely the most accessible, we prefer files saved with an .ai or .eps extension. These files will transfer more clearly onto your product and not appear blurry or pixelated.

Not sure how to change your file type?

Don’t worry! Our helpful Design Team can convert your files into a vectored format for you. Vectored art will preserve the quality of your design and keep your logo looking its best.

Before Vectoring:
If we used .jpg or .pdf without vectoring the file, your artwork would look distorted and blurry on your product.

After Vectoring:
When we change your file to a vectored form, your design is easier to resize and will look clear on your product.

Keep in mind, we will accept any file you send and will change it to a vectored form for you, free of charge! Plus, we’ll send you a free proof so you’ll always know exactly what your design will look like on your products.
Alert

Please note: We can’t change the size, shape, or position of an imprint area on your products.

How to Find Your Imprint Area

On every product details page, you will find your imprint area specified under the section “How We Add Your Logo.” You will see not only where your logo will be displayed, but also the size of your logo and how it is printed. Keep in mind your customer service rep will help you with sizing your design to fit the imprint area with no additional charge!

If you’re looking to customize a product yourself, you can also download a template on our website. Simply click “Template” and you can virtually mock-up your logo, right on screen. This unique feature makes it easy to customize any product with your unique design or advertising message.
