Preparing to Order Terms

Promotional Products Consultant Houston Order Terms

Avoiding issues that slow down the process.

When ordering promotional products, it is best to have long lead times such as at least a month before needing the items;

avoid rush situations which increases costs and the possibility of errors.

The in-hands date or deadline information should be communicated to the promotional products company

which is highly recommended if needed within a month.

Artwork Concerns

 Best to have the artwork ready before ordering.

If artwork is needed to be created, the best course of action is do a "face to face" in person

or visually online with a graphic artist for creating artwork with written documented details

and instructions instead of communicating by  multiple e-mails exchanges which can take up a lot of time.

Also, best to document the message and its details either as a digital copy or hard copy.

Generally, promotional products companies do not have graphic artists to design and

create the artwork for the customer because of the considerable amount of time needed to complete the final image.

Graphic artists at promotion products companies have the main focus of creating a digital mock-up or proof of the artwork on the promo items as well as creating the production file for the actual customization process of applying the message to the items.

Artwork/Logo image shape issues

Some promotional products may have print area that are narrow like a

line which would need the artwork or logo image to be similar in shape.

Other products have a print area that are square, round, oval or rectangular

that would again have to have the message to be close to those shapes.

For logos and artwork used on a regular basis, multiple versions of the same

content in the different basic shapes will accommodate more of the different

varieties of promotional products.

(raster graphic pixelated for demonstration purposes)

Art file format and image size preferences.

The high resolution vector file format of Adobe Illustrator which can create and edit images is the most preferred form.  The advantage is that the artwork images are scalable in size to "fit" the need without the image becoming "fuzzy" (pixelated) if the image is enlarged. EPS (Encapsulated PostScript) and SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) are also of high resolution and recommended formats as well.

In computer graphics, a raster graphics or bitmap image is a dot matrix data structure that represents a generally rectangular grid of pixels (points of color), viewable via a monitor, paper, or other display medium. Raster images are stored in image files with varying formats.

Note: The raster image size preference is 1500 x 1500 pixels or 300 dpi.

Best to avoid using raster in print applications.
