Screen Print

Ink is applied through a fine screen, leaving a color imprint on the surface of the product.

Heat Transfer

Logos are applied to products through the use of a paper-like transfer material with heat and pressure. This process is also used on material where it is not suitable to imprint more than 1 screen imprint color. Color matches will be matched to uncoated colors.

Deboss

Debossing imparts a more subtle effect than foil stamping or screen printing. This method allows you to leave a depression of your logo on the material’s surface. This process is best utilized on vinyl and bonded leather.

Foil Stamp

The most popular means of decorating our business accessories, a die is used to apply the logo onto the material’s surface. This process is best utilized on vinyl and bonded leather.

PrismMax.™

PrismMax.™ allows you to reproduce your full-color design or logo by scanning a flat, full-color image or printing your computer-generated art. 

PrismMax™ Artwork: Artwork must be submitted electronically and a hard-copy color output must be mailed for color matching. Do not send 4-color separated art. Separations will be done in our art department. Exact color match cannot be guaranteed on 4-color process.

Please submit color photographs and/or final, full-color art (printed or on disk) only. We cannot accept the following: slides, transparencies, photo negatives, film, low-resolution (halftone) prints, black-and-white separations (with two or more colors), Polaroid® photos, photos 3" x 5" or smaller. Original art size cannot exceed 11" x 17". We reserve the right to determine acceptability of submitted art. Additional art and/or alternate charges may apply. Please do not crease or mark on the photo(s) to be used. Submit a sketch of the required layout with your order. Submit art proportioned to size (with a 3/8" bleed) and design layout.

Match Primary Bag Color

We will match your imprint to product accent or trim color when requested. Simply request “match trim” as your imprint color.

Embroidery

A design is stitched with thread on the surface of the product’s material.

EMBROIDERY QUICK TIPS

  • All lettering will be digitized with closest point connections
  • Spacing between bottom of all logos and visor of cap (all styles) is a minimum of 3/4"
  • Unless otherwise instructed, all back logos will follow the curvature of cap selected
  • Customer-supplied disks will be accepted. Minimum letter height is 1/4" and minimum line width is 2mm. If the customer tape is used without any edits, the customer will not be charged. If edits are performed, such as resizing or adjustments for material change, a $15.00(x) Required Edit Fee each will be charged. If the tape is unusable, we will contact the customer for further guidance. Co-branded bags are excluded from the editing option as vendor specifications and charges vary. If a customer-supplied tape is received and does not meet our embroidery specifications or requirements, we will make necessary edits to the tape (see Required Edit Fee) and e-mail the free proof for final approval before proceeding. This may add production time to your order

Notice

Fabric dye lots may naturally have some color variation.

The cotton/canvas material is not designed for extended exposure to moisture. As a result, colorfastness of the material cannot be guaranteed.

Genuine leather will have naturally occurring variations in color and surface. When imprinting on leather, the depth of the imprint and shade may vary throughout an order due to the characteristics in each individual hide. These natural variations are your assurance that it is genuine leather.

Bag/Padfolio Sizing

All sizes are approximate. Finished goods may vary plus or minus 1/2" in each direction.

Minimum Line Weights and Type Sizes

Arial typeface is recommended, using a minimum 15 point font size. Minimum line weight is 2 point.

DEBOSSING ON CHIPBOARD

Due to the subtle contrast created by the debossing process, Helvetica or Times Roman font with a minimum font size of 18 point are recommended.

FOIL STAMPING ON CHIPBOARD

Foil stamping small type, reverse images and fine close lines tends to fill in. The recommended type is 14 point, including reverse type. Anything smaller will not be legible. Lines must be at least .5 point thick. See page 676 for stock foil colors.

4-COLOR PROCESS ON WHITE CHIPBOARD

The 4-color process allows you to print as many colors as you want for one price. All non-standard imprint colors will be converted to the closest 4-color process match. A perfect match cannot be guaranteed.

MINIMUM LINE WEIGHTS & TYPE SIZES

The recommended minimum font size is 14 point, including reverse type. A 6-point font can be reproduced; however, it can appear disproportionate to the larger notebook cover area. Anything smaller will not be legible. Lines must be at least .5 point thick.
