ARTWORK: Printing Information
Sending Us Your Logo & Text Files for A Quote!
A Better Idea prides itself on its ability to imprint a corporate logo or personalized graphic on just about any product or surface. You can send us the “camera-ready” final artwork - or we can re-design and create the camera-ready art for an additional charge. (usually $95 per logo)
Embedded logos in body of your email cannot be used - it must be sent as an attachment.
If a logo imprint is desired, you should email us a clean high quality (high-res) logo file. (Your printer, graphics person or marketing department should have this) Simple text can be typeset by us and that is should be included with your file or just emailed if no logo will be used.
NOTE: *A "high resolution" file makes the very best clean crisp print quality. 300+dpi
Type of File to E-Mail Us
Adobe Illustrator® (.AI, .EPS) 300 dpi or higher. Vector art for spot colors
High resolution File: .PDF or Photoshop .PSD for photos or full color
What If I don’t know my artwork quality or don’t have the right format?
If you do not have the proper artwork format, do not worry! We can have our artists re-design most art for a small charge of $95 per logo! Please email what you have for a quote.
I have no artwork – just an idea and text, What can you do?
If you do not have any clean logos, layout etc, but just an idea… We can have our artists re-design most bad logos, sketches, drawings etc, - Send for a custom quote! Please email what you have for a quote.
*If you do not have your logo in high-resolution “camera-ready” format, don’t worry. We can clean up your artwork or set your text for a small charge. Email whatever you have, and your ideas, and we will make it work!
