|Our Art Department is able to work to the most exacting standards to ensure that the final product is a faithful rendition of the art reference you submit (within the limitations of our technology).However more often than not, our clients rely on the extensive experience of our Art Department to design a good-looking product with certain broad parameters. In either case it is imperative that the art references you submit adhere to the following guidelines:|
• Suitable VECTOR artwork must be supplied or the artwork will be charged at an hourly rate.
• Revisions that are requested will be subject to a $25.00(C) charge per revision.
Please see our website for the defenition of Vector Artwork.
|Please refer to Figure B. for an example of how our legend will look on the art approval form. It will display a small description of the piece, the size and a legend describing plating and color location. In general the black & white art represents the metal portion of the item. |
Black indicates raised metal surfaces and white indicated recessed metal surfaces.
Artwork with colors (excluding 4 color process) will show color locations accompanied with a legend of colors used. Recessed metal surfaces may be color filled provided the color is totally outlined by raised metal in order to contain the epoxy. Recessed metal may be textured when there is no epoxy fill, in such cases "RECESSED & TEXTURE EXCEPT SMALL AREAS ARE TO BE SMOOTH" will be indicated.
