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 $60.00* 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

Laser Engraving Individual Names or Sequential Numbering
It is possible to laser engrave or print individual names, sequential numbering, barcodes etc. on products that are suitable for laser engraving or digital printing so please ask for a quotation. One setup charge of $50.00 applies to each list of names supplied.
The product colours illustrated in our catalogue and website are matched as closely as the printing process will allow. Actual product colours may vary and they can also vary from shipment to shipment and this is beyond our control. Always ask to see a sample to verify the product colour is suitable for your requirements as we do not accept returns due to minor colour variations.
The Pantone Matching System (PMS) was designed for mixing and controlling colours within the offset printing industry and the colour fidelity of this system is achieved using offset printing inks printed on coated and matt white paper stock. All other printing processes including digital printing have adopted the PMS system as a colour reference guide only for colour matching. It is important to remember that the inks used in such printing processes cannot be mixed according to the PMS recipes so PMS matches on promotional products can vary from almost perfect in some processes to only approximate in others. The colour of the product chosen is also a big factor in our ability to match PMS colours. Please do not hesitate to ask for more information about PMS colours if you have any concern as to whether the printing process can deliver the level of accuracy you require on the products you order. For pad and screen printing, close PMS colour matches are best achieved on white products. Reasonably close matches can also be achieved on frosted clear and silver surfaces but as the colour of the product gets darker the ability to match PMS colours diminishes. Full colour digital printing processes can only achieve approximate PMS colour matches at best. It is very important to be aware of this limitation as it is unavoidable and we do not accept returns based on digitally generated colours not matching PMS colours.
Please ask to see an actual sample of the product you wish to order to ascertain its suitability for your requirements. We do not accept returns of products deemed not to be suitable for the desired purpose for any reason after they are decorated.
We will warn you about printing limitations including the ability to match PMS colours on your proof. If you have any concerns that the finished product may not meet the standards you require we strongly recommend requesting a pre-production sample. The cost of pre-production samples is determined by the cost of the applicable setup charges plus the cost of the product. Once the pre-production sample is approved, normal setup charges apply to the production run.
