How to Order Custom Printed Items
Our graphic specialist are always available to help you anytime you need them. You can contact them by Live Chat or by calling us between the hours of 9 - 6pm EST Monday - Friday. Here are some simple tips that may help.|
Select the proper board size: We always recommend that you try to use one of our "stock" sized boards whenever possible. They usually can ship much faster and they cost you less than a "custom" sized board.
For instance if you're creating a simple grid pattern that measures 16" tall x 22" wide you don't want to order a "custom" 16" x 22" board. Rather use one of our 18" x 24" stock boards.
What type of board do you need?: We offer many types of custom printed boards. Some, but not all are available magnetic receptive meaning that you can use magnetic accessories.
- Framed Wall Mounted - Magnetic & Non-Magnetic
- Unframed Wall Prints Only - Non-Magnetic Only
- Small Hand Held - 6"x9", 9"x12" & 12"x18" - Non-Magnetic
- Portable & Reversible - Magnetic Only
- Conference Cabinets - Magnetic
- Standing Easels - Magnetic & Non-Magnetic
Formal Quote or Estimate: If you are ordering a large amount of boards or need a formal written estimate for your office, please contact us. Our experts are here to help..
Submitting your artwork: Once you've determined that you wish to place an order we will need your art file. You can email your art file to this address: Send Artwork. Your account manager will contact you and charge your credit card at this time for any artwork and set up fees.
We do not charge you for your order until you are fully satisfied with your PDF proofs and color samples. This process can only be be completed by you. You will sign off on both the PDF proof and color samples. At that time your account manager will complete your order and bill your credit for the rest of the order.
The preferred file types are vector images such as:
- .ai (Adobe Illustrator)
- .dwg Cad Drawing
Usually Acceptable / Non vector
- .jpg (High Resolution)
- .tif (High Resolution)
- .psd (High Resolution)
What do I get for my artwork & set up fee?:
- You will be assigned an account manager if not already working with one.
- Your files will be manipulated by our art department to work with our software to create an Opti-Prints.
- A PDF proof will be created showing the exact design.
- The files are sent to our production team where a color sample* of the actual dry erase surface is created and labeled.
- *Color samples may or may not be sent for simple black and white line prints.
- A copy of the estimate, the PDF proof and the color sample is then sent to you by UPS ground for your approval.
- You can make up to 3 revisions at no additional charge. More than 3 may require an additional charge.
*This only happens in rare circumstances but please note that we reserve the right to charge additional art work fees depending upon the complexity of your files and the amount of time that our art department may be required to use to make your files compatible.
