Artwork & Proofs
We will send you an electronic proof before printing commences. Check the proof carefully and if the correct sign or electronically approve it and return the signed or electronically approved proof to us. If in our opinion the print colours or artwork are not appropriate for the product ordered or will only give average results we will make a recommendation on the proof. We do not accept claims arising from issues we have drawn attention to in our recommendations. No printing will proceed without a signed proof. We take no liability for errors or omissions once a proof is signed so please check proofs carefully.

Below is an example of a raster graphic that has been converted to vector artwork:
A vector graphic is an ideal format to supply artwork as the majority of decorating processes including pad printing, screen printing and laser engraving can only use vector artwork. Vector artwork can also be easily converted into raster artwork if required. Artwork in this format is saved as mathematical equations and can easily be edited and resized without compromising the image quality.
Vector artwork can be supplied in the following file types:
- EPS – Encapsulated PostScript
- CDR – Corel Draw
- AI – Adobe Illustrator
- PDF – Portable Document Format (ensure artwork is converted to curves / paths to avoid font conflicts)
Colours vary greatly in the digital process. If it is important to get a close colour match on a product using the digital print process please supply Vector Art.
A raster graphic is made up of grids of pixels and can’t be as easily edited or resized and in order to use raster graphics for most decorating processes such as screen printing, pad printing or laser engraving they must first be converted or redrawn as vector graphics. Raster graphics can be used with digital printing processes however it is important that it is supplied in high resolution especially if the print area is larger as resizing the image will reduce its quality. If raster graphics are supplied we will attempt to make this artwork useable otherwise the flat fee of $65.00* per hour for our Artwork Wizard service will be charged to convert or redraw artwork.
Raster artwork can be supplied in the following file types:
- JPG, BMP, TIFF, GIF – Raster files
- DOC, PPT, XSL, PUB – MS Office files
