ALL NON-VECTOR ART MAY BE SUBJECT TO ADDITIONAL ART CHARGES.

***Please note: Placing a raster image into .ai, .cdr, .eps, or .pdf files does NOT make it a workable vector file.
The art needs to be created in one of these programs.

EMAILED ART:
Please send only one order per email to artroom@hixfe.com

SIZE:

Maximum imprint size is 11.7" × 11.7". Oversized sheet sizes are available for some transfers. Please call for pricing. When submitting artwork, please provide it at the size you would like it printed, OR mention the size that you would like First Edition Artroom to change the design to. ***If you would like a size template art file to reference, please contact Sales.

TEXT:

All text must be converted to curves (CorelDraw) or outlines (Illustrator). Avoid using sans serif typefaces below 16pts., or 24pts. for serif typefaces.

LINES:

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.

COLORS:

Please use PANTONE SOLID COATED colors when creating Vector art. White must be represented by Pantone 100C (yellow).

HALFTONES:

Use only halftones between 25%–40%. Using halftones in a large area of the design may cause a moiré pattern to appear.

EZ-ONs:

EZ-ONs do allow for halftones and distress patterns, however, we recommend using them only on one-color designs. Multi-Color EZ-ONs require a backer on the artwork. If you require a multiple color design with halftones, gradients, or distress patterns, please call us and we can discuss your options.

NON-VECTOR ART:

Please note: Placing a raster image into a .ai, .cdr, .eps, or .pdf file does NOT make it a workable vector file. The art needs to be created in one of these programs. If vector art is not available, and you must submit non-vector art, submitting it as a one color, 300dpi (or greater), Bitmap file will often allow us to use it for printing. If you cannot submit your non-vector file to those specifications, your order may be subject to additional art charges to allow our Artroom to recreate your design.

REQUESTING ART FILES:

We are always happy to provide your vector art files that you have prevously ordered. Please email artroom@hixfe.com with the file type and version you require.
