How many lines of text can I have?
This question is most commonly asked about pens. Decorating promotional products comes down to the 'imprint area' of the product. If you're printing text, the text will have to fit into the allotted imprint area for that product. Don't worry about it! Our art department will take care of laying out your logo and/or text to optimize your message on that product. In the event that your logo or imprint is not suitable for that product, a promotions specialist will contact you immediately and offer alternative solutions.

Yes, in most instances you can order blank goods. You will be billed at quantity price with no setup charges.

What is the minimum quantity of an item that I can order?

Can I order quantities different from the quantities shown in the discount table?
Yes. You can place your order for any quantity over the minimum quantity shown. The quantities in the discount table represent the quantities at which there are price breaks.

What is a setup charge?
A setup charge is a cost associated with preparing your logo for decoration on a product. This can apply to making screens for screen printing, molds for debossing, embroidery tapes for embroidery, or transfer sheets for tranfers. Often times, setting up your logo to be imprinted is more labor intensive than the imprinting process itself which is often times automated. Dies, Molds, Screens are typically kept for 1 year after your order and kept on file. Reorders are typically not subject to setup charges.

Artwork & Imprinting

How do I send my logo?
If you're ordering online, you will be prompted to upload your logo immediatly after you add your products to your shopping cart. Otherwise, you can click on the 'Artwork' tab at the top of every page that will take you to our artwork upload page.

What kind of file should I send?
Typically you should send vector artwork in an EPS, AI, or CDR file for Adobe Illustrator or Corel Draw. Color logos should use PMS colors if an exact color match is required. If the imprint method for your promotional items is 4-color process, you may also submit your artwork in high-resolution PSD or CPT file for Adobe Photoshop or Corel PhotoPaint.

What is the difference between a proof, virtual sample and pre-production proof?
Proofs are emailed PDF forms that show your logo and order reference details to size or scale and color. Virtual samples are also offered and feature your logo on the product to give you an idea of what a product will look like with your logo. Pre-Production proofs are available on all products at an additional charge. For pre-production proofs, we produce the actual product with your logo and send it to you for your approval prior to production of the entire order.

What are PMS colors?
PMS colors refer to the Pantone Matching System, the industry's standard for accurately reproducing your organizations branding elements with perfect accuracy. Not all logo's use PMS colors. If you have any questions about PMS colors and/or accurately reproducing your logo, please call a promotions specialist at 1-800-718-6495.

What is vector artwork?
Vector artwork is created in Adobe Illustrator and Corel Draw and is essential to reproducing your logo on most promotional products. Vector artwork files include: .eps, .ai, .cdr and .ps. Vector files differ from bitmap or raster files (.jpg, .gif, .tiff, .bmp) because they can be perfectly manipulated to any size or dimension. Bitmap files will blur if you increase their size. Vector files will not, they use thousands of reference points and proportionately resize your logo for a clean, crisp appearance every time. Additionally, vector files allow for color separations which is essential for spot-color imprints where each color is laid down one at a time.

What is the difference between spot color printing and 4-color process printing?
Spot color printing is a process where your the colors in your logo are separated out and screens or stamps are made. Each color is then applied to the item one at a time. After each color is applied, the item usually runs through an oven to dry the ink. With the AdLeap logo for example, the blue would run first through the first screen. The second screen would imprint the green. It's almost like putting pieces of a puzzle together. 4-Color process printing is very similar to your ink jet printer or color laser. 4-Color process imprinting is most commonly found on full color magnets, mousepads and some bags and not the most common imprint method. Essentially, 4 colors, Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and BlacK are mixed together to form a full color brilliant logo or image. Most logos however are created for spot-color reproduction.

What if I don't have my logo in a vector file?
No problem. You can send us your logo in any format, a jpg, a fax, or a scan and we can recreate your logo at an average cost of just $30.00. That of course is a one-time cost. We'll keep your vectorized logo on file here for future orders so you don't have to worry about!
