Artwork Considerations:

Vector Artwork

We prefer vector artwork whenever available. Vector artwork is free from resolution constraints and will give a perfect, crisp decal. Using vector artwork will ultimately reduce artwork time and also reduce your costs. What is vector artwork? Click here to find out more!

Bitmap or JPG Artwork

It is suggested that bitmap artwork not be used for the creation of your sticker. However, if you have a logo or design as a bitmap we can convert it for you. Re-Design, vectorization, or other artwork services may be an additional cost.

Other File Types

If your logo or design is in Microsoft Word (or similar text editor), You may save the file as a PDF and email it in. With this method, please send as much information and details as possible.

Please send your design as a PDF, EPS, AI (Adobe Illustrator), PNG, or high resolution TIF file. Other formats are accepted if they meet the other requirements.

Drawn or Paper Design Sketches

You may scan or take a clear photo of your design mock ups and sketches. Then use the custom decal quote form to submit your design.

Design Consultation Meetings

We offer design consultations in person. If you are interested, please contact us to schedule a time. There is an additional cost for this meeting. Please contact us for more details.

How Should I Set Up My design?

Please set up your vector artwork at 100% (actual size) in black and white. The black will represent the vinyl and the white will represent no vinyl. If you are requesting a multiple color decal, you may include the different colors. Please give a detailed explanation of the colors you are looking for. Artwork at 100% means that if you need a decal that is 35 inches wide; inside the computer design file the artwork is 35 inches wide.

Design Setup for Printed Stickers

Same as plotter-cut vinyl decals, please setup your design at 100% actual size. We prefer the vector design to be setup in CMYK color mode, however it can be printed in RGB.
