How to Send Us Your Logo or Text for Printing

A Better Idea prides itself on its ability to imprint a corporate logo or personalized graphic on just about any product or surface.  You can send us the “camera-ready” final artwork -  or we can re-design and create the camera-ready art for an additional charge. (usually $95 per logo)

Embedded logos in body of your email cannot be used -  it must be sent as an attachment.

 

If a logo imprint is desired, you should email us a clean high quality (high-res) logo file. (Your printer, graphics person or marketing department should have this) Simple text can be typeset by us and that is should be included with your file or just emailed if no logo will be used. 


Type of File to E-Mail Us
:

 
1. Adobe Illustrator® (AI, EPS)   300 dpi or higher. Vector art.

2. High res- PDF.


NOTE:
*A "high resolution" file makes the very best clean crisp print quality.


*If you do not have your logo in high-resolution “camera-ready” format, don’t worry.  We can clean up your artwork or set your text for a small charge.  Email whatever you have, and your ideas, and we will make it work!

Adobe-Illustrator-CS3-icon

Adobe Illustrator: Convert all type to "outlines"; include all placed EPS or TIF files in the same directory; Note: the native file format for this version is PDF what may require conversion to EPS and, consequently, additional charges may apply; to avoid this charge, save the files as version 8.0 or earlier);

Adobe-Photoshop-CS3-icon

Adobe Photoshop: For 4-Color Process: files must be saved as TIF, EPS or BMP formats, in CMYK mode, at minimum resolution of 300 dpi with print size set at 100%; for silkscreen imprint: each color should be separated in one file with registration marks (and trapping, if applicable) and files must be Black-&-White, TIF format, in Bitmap mode (50% threshold) at 1200 dpi;

Adobe-Freehand-CS3-icon

Macromedia FreeHand: Convert all type to "curves"; include all placed EPS and/or TIF files in the same directory (see above for EPS and TIF formats specs);

We do not accept computer generated artwork in MS Word, MS Office, MS Publisher, PowerPoint unless we are re-creating the art for our standard fee of $95.
