Information about our services

General File Requirements

We will be printing directly from your artwork file, so initial file quality is critical to a successful print run.  We will always let you know i50f your artwork isn't what we need to produce a high-quality product.   If we can increase the quality in any way, we will always provide this option as well.

Please do not send corporate logos or files from Google Images
that you do not have permission to reproduce, we cannot print these files.

For Microsoft Word, PowerPoint and Microsoft Publisher documents; exporting these file types as a .PDF file is recommended.  

Saving your files into a widely accepted graphic format, such as PDF, .EPS, .AI, .JPG (300dpi), .PNG (300dpi) or .BMP (300dpi), .TIFF (300dpi) format is required.  A resolution of 300dpi for larger graphics and 600dpi or above for smaller, more detailed graphics is recommended if exporting to a raster .JPG, .PNG, .TIFF or BMP file. 

Programs we recommend for graphic production: 

  • Adobe Illustrator
  • Adobe Photoshop
  • Adobe ImageReady
  • Corel Draw
  • Don't have this software? Try Google's (free to use, no downloading needed!), web-based designer SVG edit - a great starting point for designing your own artwork.

These programs have free trial versions available at www.adobe.com or www.corel.com that can be used for designing your artwork. Tutorials are widely available online to help you through the design process.

Artwork Setup Guidelines

Premium White Vinyl - Reflective Vinyl - Face Adhesive Vinyl Stickers

Design artwork at 300-600+ dpi and save as .PNG/.JPG format if using Photoshop.  If designed in a vector program such as Adobe Illustrator or Corel Draw, ALWAYS provide this vector file to us for quoting purposes so we know what type of file we'll be working with.  Save all vector files in an .EPS or .AI format and be sure to convert all text to outlines or curves before saving.  

Color Space: Your file can be designed in RGB or CMYK color.

No templates are needed and we do not use standard sizes.  We recommend you design your artwork to what fits your exact needs and we'll handle the rest!  Establishing a size for your sticker is always the most critical step.  

Pro Tip:  If unsure of what size sticker you need, we recommend designing your artwork and printing out a few to-size examples on paper via your home printer to give yourself a visual aid to choosing the best size.  This example will give you an idea of text legibility, overall look and feel, etc.  Simply print and cut out your examples, hold them up to the application area and you suddenly have a rough example of how your actual stickers will function.  Enter your final measurements when receiving your Free Quote and you will have an educated idea on how large your stickers will look when you receive them.

Our production process allows us great flexibility to setup your artwork with very little, if any changes needed during setup.  We can print the most basic black and white artwork, to the most complex photographs onto our high-quality vinyl!

Bleeds and defining cut lines:  If adding a bleed to your artwork, please add in trim lines or a 1 point cut line within the bleed to define the shape of the sticker.   Bleeds aren't always required with our incredibly accurate cutting equipment; we will know whether we will need a bleed once we see your file. 

Sizes Available:  Stickers can be made from 1" x 1" (sometimes smaller, depend on how basic your artwork is) up to 50" wide (and nearly any length) in size.  For larger files, please design your file at 300dpi or design in a vector format.

Contour Cut Lines:  A staff member will view your artwork during the quoting process to ensure its print ready.  If no cut line is added to define the shape of your stickers, we can easily add in a cut line to define your sticker shape for you, simply let us know what your shape requirements are.  Questions? Contact us.

 

Artwork Setup Guidelines - Die-Cut Stickers

Die-cut stickers are created using a single-color vinyl cutting process, which results in a sticker with no background when applied; care must be taken when you're designing your file to ensure your artwork isn't too detailed for this process.  

Avoid designing with lettering smaller than 0.25" in height.  Maintain basic, clean edged design and text details and eliminate small, detailed parts where possible such as extremely small dots or very thin lines.  Remember that as your design gets smaller, your design elements will too, so for a smaller sticker, remove more details. 

Fonts with jagged or rough looking elements will not be acceptable for this process.

Design artwork in one color, as this is a one color process. Vector Art designed in Corel Draw or Adobe Illustrator is highly recommended (.EPS, .AI, .PDF) and may be required based on your production needs.

Stickers can be made up to 28" wide and nearly any length using the available colors on our die-cut stickers page

Need to check and see if your artwork is die-cut ready?  Simply upload it using our Free Quote Form and we'll let you know what may need to be adjusted.

Pricing / Receive Free Samples

We strive to provide the lowest prices possible for our high quality custom vinyl stickers.  To receive pricing for your custom sticker order, please start by filling out our free quote form.  Our free quote form allows you to upload your print-ready artwork file, along with your exact sizing specifications directly to us.  We'll respond the same business day with your free quote via e-mail.  If for some reason you don't receive our response within 24 hours, please check your junk mail folder, then give us a call at 304-212-4670. 

Looking for samples before placing an order?  We have free samples available for every custom sticker that we produce.  We prefer to mail samples after providing a quote to ensure our pricing is something that works for your needs.  Simply make a note within our free quote form with your shipping address and custom sticker types you're interested in.  We'll e-mail you a confirmation when your samples ship. 

What about price matching? We do not price match as we have found that very few companies produce the same quality of products that we do.  Because we print at a very high resolution, while using very high quality materials, matching a lower end product wouldn’t be an even comparison for price matching.

Our high quality materials ensure your products will stay looking great through many harsh outdoor conditions!
