Menu Imprinting Guide

Artwork Guidelines:
Please supply camera-ready artwork, i.e., sharp black image on white background with no screens (halftones) - 600 dpi or more is recommended, if this is not available, please supply oversized copy (we will reduce to final size for you). Lower resolutions usually have to be redrawn or used as is which results in poor quality.

If artwork requires minor retouching or typesetting, we will provide this service at no extra charge. Type should be identified by name. When a sample is supplied that cannot be recognized, the nearest match will be provided.

A proof will be sent for logos stamped on custom books. Please allow a minimum of 48 hours for logo proof turnaround.  For orders with complex or poor-quality artwork, as well as all artwork for metal embossing, please allow 3 to 5 business days for proof turnaround.

MAC or PC: PDF, TIFF, and EPS files are preferred. Other formats may or may not work. Original Adobe Illustrator or Photoshop files are required when modifications to the art are needed.

Full-color art should not be submitted unless the job is in four-color process. Two- or three-color art should be separated by PMS spot color and a proof of the separation should be supplied.
