National logs are available as shown above. They are also available in black. These logs can be reproduced on most custom imprinted promotional items. When selecting an item to be ordered always check the "options" button and the order details to determine if the manufacturer imposes a charge for logo reproduction.

Custom Logos:
Custom logos are acceptable in most cases. It is important that your logo be a size and configuration to fit the imprint area of the item to be ordered. Please submit your logo electronically when you order. Oversized rather than undersized as the quality of the logo typically improves in resolution as it is reduced.

Photos submitted should be original. We can not use copies from business cards, photos printed on a desktop printer etc. Always try to submit your photo in a size larger than that which will be printed on the item ordered. Reduction of the photo rather than enlargement will improve quality when printed. Minor variations in color may occur when transferring your color photo or art to digital image. These variations are deemed acceptable industry wide. Exact color match is expensive and time consuming.

First import your photo into the computer using a scanner, a camera (or camera memory card) or from a photo CD.

When the photo is on your screen, click on the word "file" in the upper left of your screen, scroll down to "save as", give the photo a name and save it on your desktop or in a folder on your hard drive. (Remember where you saved it.) Also, when the "save as" box appears, look for "save as type" at the bottom and from the list that appears select JEPG or JPG.

Common Industry Terms:
Screen Printing: An image is transferred to the printed surface by ink, which is pressed through a stenciled screen and treated with light-sensitive emulsion.Film positives are put in contact with the screens and exposed to light, hardening the emulsion not covered by film and leaving a soft area on the screen for the squeegee to press ink through. (Also called silk screening)

Pad Printing: A recessed surface is covered with ink. The plate is wiped clean, leaving ink in the recessed areas. A silicone pad is then pressed against the plate, pulling the ink out of the recesses, and pressing it directly onto the product.

4-Color Process: A system where a color image is separated into 4 different color values by the use of of filters and screens (usually done digitally). The result is a color separation of 4 images, that when transferred to printing plates and printed on a printing press with the colored inks cyan (blue), magenta (red), yellow and black, reproduces the original color image, These four colors can be combines to create thousands of colors.

Pantone Matching System (PMS): A book of standardized color in a fan format used to identify, match and communicate colors in order to produce accurate color matches in printing. Each color has a coded number indicating instructions for mixing inks to achieve that color.

Camera-Ready: Artwork that is black and white with very clean, crisp lines that make it easy to scan & suitable for photographic reproduction.

Bleed: Printers cannot print right to the edge of a paper sheet. To create that effect, the printer must use a sheet is larger than the document size. Then the printer prints beyond the edge of the document size (usually 1/8"), the cuts the paper down to the document size.

Imprint area: The area on the product with specific dimensions in which the imprint is placed.

Paper Proof: Impression of type or artwork on paper so that correctness and quality of the material to be printed can be checked. The least expensive is a regular black and white faxed paper proof. Electronic Proof:  Proof sent electronically by email.  Pre-production Proof: an actual physical sample of the product itself produced and sent for approval before an order goes into production.

Exact Rerun: Usually there is no set up charge on exact reruns of an order.

Etching: Using a process in which an image is first covered with a protective coating that resists acid, then exposed, leaving bare metal and protected metal. The acid attacks only the exposed metal, leaving the image etched into the surface.

Engraving: Cutting an image into the metal, wood or glass by one of three methods - computerized engraving, had tracing, or hand engraving.

Colorfill Vinyl: Screen printing an image and then the debossing it into the vinyl's surface.

Colorfill Metal: Filling recessed areas of stamped  or engraved metal with enamels or colored epoxy.

Embroidery: Stitching a design into fabric through the use of high-speed computer-controlled sewing machines. Artwork must first be "digitized," which is the specialized process of converting two-dimensional artwork into stitches of thread. A particular format of art such as a jpeg, tif or bmp, cannot be converted into an embroidery tape. The digitizer must actually recreate the artwork using stitches. Then it programs the sewing machine to sew a specific design, in a specific color, with a specific type of stitch. This process is called digitizing.

Debossing: Depressing an image into a material's surface so that the image sits below the product surface.

Embossing: Impressing and image in relief to achieve a raised surface.

Hot Stamp: Setting a design on a relief die, which is then heated and pressed onto the printing surface.

Laser or Foil Stamp: Applying metallic or colored foil imprints to vinyl, leather or paper surfaces.

Personalization: Imprinting an item with a person's name using one of the several methods such as engraving, laser engraving, hot stamping, debossing, sublimation, or screen printing to name a few .

Die-casting: Injecting molten  metal into the cavity of a carved die (a mold).

Die-Striking: Producing emblems and other flat promotional products by striking a blank metal sheet with a hammer that holds the die.
