F.A.Q.

Artwork

1. What Kind of Artwork should I send?

Ideally you should send Camera-Ready Art, which refers to artwork that is ready to be printed as-is without any further modifications. Generally this art is vector-based, and created by professional software designed to produce smooth, non-pixelated graphics. It is often denoted by a .EPS, .AI or .PDF file type.

If you don't have a vector file, some pixel-based (or raster-based) images are high enough resolution to be traced with minimal loss of quality. However, when dealing with licensed logos and graphics, it is not recommended to trace pixel-based images as it can alter the artwork significantly. Usually there is not an additional charge for us to convert something for you or manipulate what you already have to be printable. Custom designs and artwork from scratch are subject to an additional art fee. Don't hesitate to call our customer service team directly if you have any additional questions about artwork.

2. Where should I send my artwork?

Our website is designed so that you can upload files or provide written text at the time you place your order. However, you can always email us your artwork to customerservice@campusmarketing.com. Please make sure that the subject line of your email references your order and include your contact information in the email as well to be sure that we can reach you should we have any further questions.

3. How long does it take for Custom Artwork?

Depending on the scope of what we are designing, artwork can often times take as little as several hours to a few days. Our goal is to design something for you as quickly as possible in order to still meet your timeline.

4. Are you able to design a logo or brochure for us?

We've worked with many customers to design brochures, logos, catalogs, flyers, posters, etc. Our customer service team will help you move forward with a project like this should you be interested.

5. How do I know if the artwork/logo that I sent you will look good on the product that I'm ordering?

Once we receive your order and artwork, our art staff will send you either an electronic or faxed proof for you to approve. While you won't see an actual sample product, you will be able to make sure that the imprint will look like what you had intended it to look like. And if for any reason we don't think what you ordered will look good, our customer service team will contact you directly to give you some guidance about how to make it look appropriate.
