FAQ

Artwork

At what point in the process should I upload my art?

Ideally you will use the artwork upload option on the product page prior to adding your display product to your cart.  This will ensure that your artwork can be easily located and associated with your order.  At any point you can also utilize the artwork upload link at the bottom of every page.  Just be sure to be explicit with the related contact details.

How long will it take to proof my art?

We ask for 1 full business day from the time we receive the art to time we will provide digital proofs.   If for any reason your artwork does not meet our quality standards we’ll provide you with information on what needs to be corrected and we’ll need an additional 1 full business day from receiving revised artwork.

Where do I upload my art?

At any time you can upload print-ready artwork (setup on our templates) using the our upload link in the footer of every page.  If you need custom design and artwork assistance, after purchase we'll provide you with a link to a form to upload any artwork that you may have as well as provide us with any notes in regard to your custom design.

What file type should I upload my art in?

As stated in our Artwork Guidelines, we prefer final artwork to be sent in PDF, Ai, EPS or a PSD file, although we do accept high-resolution image files, as well as Adobe Indesign. Please note that Indesign files require that you also send the linked elements. Please also note that modifications to Flattened PSD files and Image formats such as JPEG, PNG, and TIFF are very limited. WE DON'T ACCEPT Canva files at this time.

What resolution should my art be?

As stated in our Artwork Guidelines, the DPI of your images when placed on our templates should be a minimum of 72 DPI and a maximum of 150 DPI. A select few of our templates have been created at half scale so that they are compatible with Photoshop and Illustrator’s maximum canvas size. For templates that are designed at half scale, you need to double the DPI to a minimum of 200 DPI. A good way to double check the DPI of your embedded images is to zoom in to your artwork at 100% .

Where do I find the graphic templates for my display?

Templates can be found at the bottom of every product page.

Display Information

I see most of your graphics are printed using dye sublimation, what is that?

“The process is distinctive in that it creates graphics by using inks – disperse dyes – in their gas form. First, graphics are printed onto transfer paper. Using a heat press, the transfer paper is then placed on the item you’re decorating. The heat allows the dried inks on the transfer paper to turn from a solid form into gas and penetrate the polyester fabrics.

When heated, the polymers in the polyester encourage the inks to bond, which creates permanent graphics that are fully embedded into the material.
