Preferred formatted art files are .ai, .eps, .svg or vectorized pdf. Sending your artwork using one of these formats will save on art fees. If the art file is in another format or not print ready then we will provide you with a quote to finalize it for production. These fees are non-refundable and start at $15.
STANDARD MAXIMUM IMPRINT SIZE:
OVERSIZED MAXIMUM IMPRINT SIZE:
11"X18" OR 12.5"x14.5" (Please note: Oversized prints are available for ONE color
transfers only AND are charged at 2-color pricing). These are ONLY offered for single images. Ganged or grouped aren't acceptable.
All text must be converted to outlines (Illustrator). Avoid using sans serif typefaces below 16pts., or 24pts. for serif typefaces.
Use a minimum line weight of 2pts. When ordering glitter transfers, please use the largest line weight you can. Glitter transfers look best with thick lines/text.
Please use PANTONE SOLID COATED colors when creating art. White must be represented by Pantone 100C (yellow). Any art submitted with CMYK will incur art fees.
Use only halftones between 25%–40%. Using halftones in a large area of the design may cause a dot pattern to appear. Also, percentages above 40% will cause areas of the logos to fill in. Percentages below 25% will blow off the screen and not print in some areas.
We will provide proofs at no extra cost with every order. Artwork must be checked and verified for accuracy as First Edition isn't responsible for art once it is approved.
Any art that isn't print ready will incur art charges. Our minimum charge is $15. Our team of designers will work with your sketch, raw idea or your vector art to help get your artwork finalized for production. Orders will need to be submitted through the online portal and include any special instructions. Our experienced art staff will provide a timely art quote for you to authorize. Additional art charges will occur with changes and revisions.
