WHAT IS “PRINT READY” ART?
The images below. illustrate the difference between bitmap/raster images and vector images. On your left, you’ll notice the clear, crisp edges that vector art creates. To the right, you see blurry, pixelated artwork that bitmap/raster images have if not built to the proper size.
Screen Designs Inc prefers vector artwork but can work with both types of art. If you are using bitmap/raster art, make sure that the image is 300 DPI at the desired size.
COMMON VECTOR ART FILE TYPES: EPS, AI, PDF, CDR
COMMON RASTER ART FILE TYPES: TIF, JPG, GIF, PNG, PSD
Custom art work provided by Screen Designs Inc. is billed at a standard rate of $35.00 per hour. Conversion of raster images (where possible) such as .jpegs, .bmp, .png, .gif, .psd will result in the $35.00 per hour art fee. Photoshop (PSD) files are not vectored and will be assessed a $35 per hour fee to convert/re-create to a usable vectored format (where possible.)
All custom artwork created is the property of Screen Designs Inc. unless the client pays for the production of the artwork as part of their service.
If client is providing artwork, it must be in a vector format in solid spot colors. If 4-color process printing is required, the required artwork format is CMYK at 300 dpi or higher. If artwork is not in the required format, art charges may occur. All text used must be converted to outlines or paths.
If client art is provided, client must also supply Screen Designs Inc. with all original art files in the programs they were created so changes can be made by Screen Designs Inc. if necessary. Screen Designs Inc. cannot be held responsible for bad artwork that is approved by the client. All projects will be allowed corrections for artwork at the sole discretion of Screen Designs Inc. Art and project corrections cannot include work outside of the scope of the original estimate.
While every effort is made to reproduce an imprint just as the artwork, variations in ink and printing processes make it impossible for us to guarantee exact color representation and consistency. All clients must provide proof of ownership before copyrighted materials will be printed. Screen Designs Inc. will not be responsible for (and reserves the right to collect) legal fees incurred due to copyright infringement.
