Your logo can make a big difference in the appearance of your printed forms. Take the time to find and add your own logo or artwork.

In order to provide you with the best possible result, below are the guidelines on the kind of graphics files our printer needs. If these instructions are not helpful, (if you do not have a graphics professional), we can usually work with what you have. There may be a charge if our graphic designers need to alter or create the artwork. If we encounter problems, we will let you know before any extra charges are added to your order. Charges are usually no more than $25 -$50. We often run specials for $50 worth of free graphics design services, for those with out the artwork needed for printing.

Instructions for Sending Electronic Art

Supported Media You can send your artwork by email. Or send us a copy of your disk as disks can be damaged or lost in transit. Never send original disks! Most people email their artwork as an attachment to an email. Professional printing is a different world than the web. Often things which work on the web do not work well in print. Printing requires a much higher resolution (more data) than the web. Include all Fonts If you use any unusual fonts, include all fonts for all styles used (regular, italic, bold). We can not accept TrueType (TT) fonts. Accepted Applications
