Personalization Pointers

Here are some great tips for making sure that your imprint looks great on any of the items that you choose.

Our goal is to make sure that whatever you order looks great. Keep in mind that imprints are often a reflection of your personality, so have fun. We'll be sure to send you a FREE proof before we begin production to ensure that you like what you're going to receive.

1. Use Big, Bright and Bold Images and Logos

The best way to ensure that your imprint looks good is to use crisp, clean artwork and to choose colors that offer good contrast to the item that it's being imprinted on. It's generally good practice to use lighter colors on a dark item and darker colors on a light item to be able to read something the easiest way.


Additionally, our Art Department will always maximize the space allotted for the imprint area and size your artwork as large as possible within that space. Often times "Less is More" when it comes to information to be imprinted. Keep in mind that many of the imprint areas are small, so the more you want to be imprinted in that space, the smaller it has to become. We suggest that only a limited amount of information go in a small space so that what is there can be as large as possible. Keep your message simple and to the point so that whoever is reading it can find the most important information right away.

2. Use Vector Artwork to Ensure Clean Crisp Artwork

We want to make sure that your art is smooth and crisp on every imprint that you have. In order to do that you will need to supply us with Camera-ready art. Camera-ready art 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 or .PDF file type. But don't worry if you don't have that type of file. Send us what you have and our art department will be happy to work with you to create exactly what you need. There is not usually a charge for us design something custom for you or manipulating what you already have to look perfect. Don't hesitate to call our customer service team directly if you have any additional questions about artwork.
