How to Send Us Your Logo or Text for Printing

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. 


Type of File to E-Mail Us
:


1. Adobe Illustrator® (AI, EPS)   300 dpi or higher. Vector art.

2. High res- PDF.


NOTE:
*A "high resolution" file makes the very best clean crisp print quality.


*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!

 

E-mail artwork. Contact name, phone number, order number and company name must be included in the e-mail message. Files must be under 4 MEGS or please compress before emailing.    You can also send “Large” files (over 4 meg) via our DROP BOX:    

GO TO:  http://dropbox.yousendit.com/NormanFaria763465    Add your file, name and contact details, order or request # and any details you can provide about the file, and it will be sent directly to our art department.

Business cards, letterheads, faxes and laser prints are NOT acceptable. PDF, DOC, PUB, TIF, BMP, JPG and GIF file formats are NOT acceptable. If you must send files created in Microsoft Word, Publisher or PowerPoint, we can re-create and re-draw them in the correct artwork resolution for $95.

 

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
 

*Files over 4 megs MUST be compressed before emailing.  Large e-mailed files will not be received by our email program!   Please use our easy DROP BOX to send large files.

COMPUTER GENERATED ARTWORK

This is the best alternative for submitting your art. Digital artwork guarantees the highest quality of imprint possible. We operate on Apple Macintosh & PC platforms and accept files saved for the following applications.  We prefer PC files:

Adobe-Illustrator-CS3-icon

Adobe Illustrator: Convert all type to "outlines"; include all placed EPS or TIF files in the same directory; Note: the native file format for this version is PDF what may require conversion to EPS and, consequently, additional charges may apply; to avoid this charge, save the files as version 8.0 or earlier);

Adobe-Photoshop-CS3-icon

Adobe Photoshop: For 4-Color Process: files must be saved as TIF, EPS or BMP formats, in CMYK mode, at minimum resolution of 300 dpi with print size set at 100%; for silkscreen imprint: each color should be separated in one file with registration marks (and trapping, if applicable) and files must be Black-&-White, TIF format, in Bitmap mode (50% threshold) at 1200 dpi;

Adobe-Freehand-CS3-icon

Macromedia FreeHand: Convert all type to "curves"; include all placed EPS and/or TIF files in the same directory (see above for EPS and TIF formats specs);

Adobe-PageMaker-CS3-icon

Adobe Pagemaker: Send all fonts (screen & print) used in the document; include all EPS and/or TIF files used in the same directory (see above for EPS and TIF formats specs);

Quark-icon

Quark Xpress: If working on Mac, send all fonts (screen & print) used in the document ; include all EPS and/or TIF files used in the same directory (see above for EPS and TIF formats specs);

Attention: any artwork created on different operating systems must be converted to EPS, TIF or BMP format before submitted (we cannot perform this conversion). We do not accept computer generated artwork in MS Word, MS Office, MS Publisher, PowerPoint unless we are re-creating the art for our standard fee of $95.

Please note that due to increasing problems with viruses and anonymous spam email, we now have a formal set of requirements for ARTWORK SUBMISSION.

If submitting artwork via e-mail, the above guidelines must apply and the following procedure should be followed:

  1. Refer to your Company & Order number in the subject title of the e-mail message;
  2. Include a description of the file(s) attached (file format, application, version), the  company's name, and a contact name with phone number in the body of the message;
  3. Then, attach the artwork file(s) or the directory(ies) to the message and email us.
