Q: How do I find the design that?s right for me?
A: When choosing your design, it is important to consider the key elements of your business. First, decide what type of message you want your logo to convey. For example, do you want a design that is strong and bold or soft and caring? Next, consider what colors you want to use. Many colors evoke different moods, such as blue gives a sense of calming and red shows energy. Another suggestion is to look at what designs your competitors are using. Although you don?t want to have the same look, it could help create ideas or feelings you might want to incorporate, or simply show you what not to do. Overall, choose a design you like and what you think will appeal to your customers. If you need more assistance, ask our BIZCare team for suggestions.

Then you have the option to choose an alternate product size and color variation compared to what you first selected. You do not have to modify the product size or color if you are happy with your original design.

Q: What if I want to use my own artwork?
A: A great feature of our website is allowing you the ability to create a product that is uniquely yours by using the tools we provide. You can upload art to your documents to store and use whenever you want. Please see the custom art specs below, as well as the tutorial, for step-by-step instructions to upload your own art.
Q: What are the specs for custom artwork?
A: All production art must be CMYK. Use an image at 600 DPI at a size with bleed included. All files should bleed. File sizes are .25? wider than the actual size of product. This would create a .125? bleed to each side of the document. (Ex. A 6 × 4.25 document would be uploaded as a 6.25 × 4.5? art file.) If you are not using bleed, include a white border. All raster art should be flattened. If you are familiar with color profiles, an embedded ?US Sheetfed Coated V2? profile should be saved to your file.
Q: What file formats are accepted?
A: The best formats for the system are JPG and TIFF files, with a CMYK profile. ONLY CMYK files are accepted, with or without a profile. All images are rasterized, including all supported vector formats PDF, AI & EPS.
