No fonts smaller than 11 pts
All graphics converted to black and white
All fonts converted to outlines
No lines thinner than 1 pt
All objects are vector - no raster images
No linked/embedded objects within a file
When Will I See A Proof?
Depending on whether your order is a rush or standard production time, proof schedules may vary. For rush orders, you should see a proof within 24 hours. For orders that have a standard turnaround time, please allow 48 hours for your proof to arrive.
In order to ensure customer satisfaction, we proof all orders. Customer revision and approval of graphical proofs is required for all orders. We will not proceed until customer's approval is received.
We ask customers to reply to proof emails within 24 hours whenever possible to avoid shipping delays. Late approvals from customers may require expedited shipping methods.
Once you have approved the proof, responsibility for any mistakes shifts to the client..
HOW MUCH IS ENGRAVING/PRINTING?
Most engraving/printing/embroidery fees are included for one standard placement. Setups apply differently depending on method. Specifics details available on the product details page. You can always call, email or live chat us for more information.
You do not need your artwork, text or personalization to place an order. It is important we get the order process started by cutting, polishing, and prepping your awards first. You can send you artwork a few days later to help ensure your pieces arrive on time and are ready to etch.
For rush orders we will make every effort to accommodate your needs. We do not charge any fees for rush orders other than the expedited shipping cost to get your order to you.
