CAMERA READY ART:
‘Camera-ready’ refers to art and copy that is ready to be transferred to film without any retouching. Retouching includes art that has to be retraced, redrawn or reworked on the computer or by an artist. Images or type should be in black on a clean white background with at least 600 DPI (dots per inch). If artwork consists of several colors, a separate piece of art has to be supplied for each color along with a composite. Images have to be in exact position and to size or larger of the product imprint area. Colors have to be marked on each piece of artwork. Original art is reproduced using a high-resolution drum scanner. Any imperfection in the submitted camera-ready artwork will appear on the final product. Customer service will notify customer if camera-ready artwork needs corrections or if new art has to be submitted. Factory is not liable for final product appearance of customer’s submitted artwork if corrections are needed but not authorized.
No art charge will be applied if camera-ready artwork is supplied on disk, e-mailed or uploaded to our website. All artwork (logos and copy) must be complete and in the exact position required. Artwork provided by e-mail or on disk must be vectorized for spot colors; otherwise products will be run as four-color process. All fonts must be provided with the art, or type must be converted to path. If factory has to vectorize raster art, additional art charges may apply.
