We prefer that you send .PDF with embedded or outlined fonts. .PDF's are easier to handle and will likely speed up your turn-around. Remember to create your document page to size and to include crop marks, bleed, and flatten your files before uploading (PDFX1/A).
Please keep all text at least 0.125" inside the cut-line.
- The bleed for Standard Products is 0.125".
Turnarounds on design projects are done on an individual time estimate basis.
Vehicle wrap projects typically see:
- Day 1: Design Files / Deposit
- Day 2: File review & procurement of materials required
- Day 3: RIP / Printing
- Day 4: Lamination
- Day 5: Cutting / Taping / Materials prep
- Day 6: Scheduling Vehicle install date
Think your question through, write it down, include your phone contact and we'll know if there's a quick email back to answer, or, if during a break, we can get back to you by phone with a more complicated solution to your query.
The simple answer is, "Its very likely, but buried under terabytes of others' data" and to find it, there'd be an hourly fee.
You should back up all your data frequently. "Lost Data" can cause tremendous amount of stress, extra work, and potentially huge losses in revenue. Its always a good plan to save both a compressed native folder and a final .pdf to CD, DVD, Flash Drive, or cloud service when you meet a completion target. REMEMBER: Use a Sharpie and write the date on the surface of the CD/DVD.
If you're really concerned with protecting your data, store these offsite, a CD/DVD away from your computer in a protected binder and on a cloud service.
You can also pay small monthly hosting fees to store your data on an offsite server, allowing retrieval from any internet enabled computer that you have access to. Or, like most, you won't need the volumes of space that these paid services provide. For FREE storage: CLICK HERE!
Common uses of graphic design include magazines, advertisements, product packaging and web design. For example, a product package might include a logo or other artwork, organized text and pure design elements such as shapes and color which unify the piece. Composition is one of the most important features of graphic design especially when using pre-existing materials or diverse elements.
Typography is performed by typesetters, compositors, typographers, graphic designers, art directors, comic book artists, graffiti artists, and clerical workers. Until the Digital Age, typography was a specialized occupation. Digitization opened up typography to new generations of visual designers and lay users.
In traditional typography, text is composed to create a readable, coherent, and visually satisfying whole that works invisibly, without the awareness of the reader. Even distribution of typeset material, with a minimum of distractions and anomalies, is aimed at producing clarity and transparency.
In typography color is the overall density of the ink on the page, determined mainly by the type face and size, the leading, but also by the word spacing and depth of the margins. Text layout, tone or color of set matter, and the interplay of text with white space of the page and other graphic elements combine to impart a "feel" or "resonance" to the subject matter. With printed media typographers are also concerned with binding margins, paper selection and printing methods.
Legibility is primarily the concern of the typeface designer, to ensure that each individual character or glyph is unambiguous and distinguishable from all other characters in the font. Legibility is also in part the concern of the typographer to select a typeface with appropriate clarity of design for the intended use at the intended size. An example of a well-known design, Brush Script, contains a number of illegible letters since many of the characters can be easily misread especially if seen out of textual context.
Readability is primarily the concern of the typographer or information designer. It is the intended result of the complete process of presentation of textual material in order to communicate meaning as unambiguously as possible. A reader should be assisted in navigating around the information with ease, by optimal inter-letter, inter-word and particularly inter-line spacing, coupled with appropriate line length and position on the page, careful editorial “chunking” and choice of the text architecture of titles, folios, and reference links.
