Comments: We prefer VECTOR based artwork such as is prepared using Adobe Illustrator or Macromedia Freehand. Please convert all fonts to outlines (curves), and send us the native file along with an EPS. If using Photoshop, please create your file with one layer per pms color. A tiff or Jpeg is only acceptable when using ONE imprint color...make sure you create the design at 300 dpi !! NO HALFTONES ACCEPTED !!

RESOLUTION: We recommend creating your rastor art at 300 dpi (dots per inch) at actual print size.
FONTS: we recommend all reversed type be set to bold. Serif fonts such as Times should be set at 18 point or greater and sans-serif fonts like Helvetica should be set at 13 point or greater. All reversed lines should be 2 points or greater. We also recommend that all text be converted to curves/outlines by the originating program. This avoids the many problems associated with various font styles, formats and originators. While this will render text uneditable, it can be sized and manipulated like any other graphic element. If the text must remain editable or if the text cannot be converted to outlines, the screen and printer fonts must both be submitted with the job.
COLOR MODE: The format of colors that are included in any image must match the intended output format. Spot PMS colors will be matched to the Pantone® UNCOATED color guide. If you do not know how to build a spot color design, create it in RGB mode, and tell us the SPOT PMS pantone color number(s) you want used. Full color designs must be created in CMYK color mode and submitted as such. We will not be responsible for any color shift that occurs if you supply an rgb file and have us convert the file to cmyk.
TRAPPING: Please make us aware of any trapping you have done to your file, and any particular trapping concerns you may have at the time you submit your graphic !
PRINTED SAMPLE: We suggest you purchase a sample printed with YOUR design prior to placing your bulk order. Please inquire about cost if you have interest.
YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE: Always remember that submitted layouts are printed "as is." While we often check your file for compliance to our requirements, we will not be responsible for our failure to correct any portions of your design which are not compliant. When you submit your digital art, you are responsible for its content and construction. Be certain the work is color corrected, the images are adjusted to your satisfaction, all text is correctly spelled, and that your art is prepared according to our instructions. All photographic images and images including half-tones or screen tints will require us to make some adjustment in order to work well with the sublimation printing process. We strongly recommend supplying us with a color print of your design along with the art file so we can use it as a reference when producing the prints needed to image your merchandise.
HOW TO DELIVER YOUR ART FILE(S) TO A1: Over 90% of our clients choose to upload their design to our subsite on Email us for instructions. Otherwise, send your art saved to CD-ROM or DVD. Make sure you test your CD to be certain the art will open correctly.
COPYRIGHTS: Customers warrant that all images supplied for reproduction, whether digital, conventional or otherwise, are unencumbered by copyright and other usage rights connected to the image(s) and agree to hold harmless and indemnify A1 Custom Mousepad Imaging Inc.® for all claims and expenses for any actions in law that may result from the use of these images.
SEPARATIONS, FILM, FILES, PLATES & DIES: All separations, digital files, plates, and dies created by A1 Custom Mousepad Imaging Inc.® remain our property. Our policy is to keep these materials on file for 24 months, except for sublimation film separations which we discard after use. Setups are customary for reorders, but may be discounted depending on product reordered. After 24 months, reorders are treated as new jobs and require new art and set-ups. Original art is always returned upon request.
PROFESSIONAL ART SERVICES: While we can assist you with type setting, and other basic graphic design services, we are not setup to supply professional creative design services. We are pleased, however, to refer you to various professionals we know who can assist you for a fee.
