General Logo Art Design Guidelines

No scans or placed images. The art must originate in the program.
As a rule, halftones or gradients will NOT print on most products.
Do not include those in your art design. Exception: Notepads.

All text must be a minimum of an 8 Pt. font size when the total
artwork is at the maximum imprint area size. Imprint areas are
displayed for each promo item in the Imprinted section
on all product pages contained within the website.
Certain fonts require a larger font size to print.

Acceptable Factory Ready Art Programs

Adobe Illustrator, In Design or Photo Shop are the Industry Standard
programs for creating a factory ready promotional items art file.

You Provide Factory Ready 1-4 Color Art

Art created in Adobe Illustrator, In Design or Photo Shop, no others.
Art must be created by a professional graphic artist, no junk.
Use registration marks for multi-color art so colors line up
Vector Art, All Text Converted to Outlines or Paths.
Saved as a CS6 File or lower, .ai, .eps or .pdf file.

Create the art at the maximum imprint area size if the
total imprint area is under approximately 6" x 6".
If the imprint area is very large an approximate
6" x 6" file is fine. True vector art is scalable.
File size should not be much over 2MB.
Most files are less than 1MB.

You Provide Four Color Process, 4CP Art

Guidelines and Art Programs Are The Same As 1-4 Color Art.
Note that 4CP art reproduction is performed to the closest
colors possible using Standard Factory 4CP which does
vary from factory to factory. No process is perfect.

You Do Not Have Factory Ready Logo Art

PII maintains a logo art dept. for one to four color process art development.
We do this as a service for our business customers at a discounted
rate compared to graphic development companies. In addition,
we will save the art on our server and do exact art reprints
at no charge for future orders placed with PII. Also, if in
the future you require an art revision, such as website
address or other text added to existing art it is
performed at a very low cost and saved too.
Hard to beat.

Include a Word doc rough layout with one of the above OR
