My Artwork Looks Small, Can You Make It Bigger?

We maximize the imprint areas on all of our products, and we always try to make sure that our imprint areas are as large as possible. If you are imprinting in a small area like a keychain or paperweight, we recommend not putting too much information in the imprint area. Having too much information may take away from the look and feel of the promotional product. We often recommend utilizing second imprint locations for adding more information.

My Artwork Looks A Little Blurry In The Proof. Will It Print That Way?

PDF files often can distort the images just a hair that may cause the artwork to seem blurry. We make sure that your promotional products artwork is in fact not printed to any distortion, however, if you see anything in the artwork that doesn't seem right please DO NOT approve your artwork and ask us to make the changes. Good Examples are if the "dot" in the lower case "i" is missing, or if an apostrophe is missing. Printing a copy of the pdf file will also help determine if there is something wrong with the artwork. Always double check everything in your artwork e-proof before approving.
