Our Fast Turn Around and Low Cost Program works beautifully when the artwork you submit is simple copy: Text and/or Logo with No Bleeds, No Wraps, No Large Blocks of Color, No Tight Registration, No Subtle Gradients/Tints; good contrast halftones okay at 5% min/80% max density—no white/solid black areas (we use 110 linescreen); and all content is at least 1/4” in from any edge or seam (back side). All copy must be approved.

Any questions or concerns, no matter how seemingly small, please contact us.
