What are your artwork requirements?

Many of our products allow you to add an agency logo or customization. Customer supplied artwork plays a critical role in the quality of the finished product. A file that is supplied at high resolution will produce the best possible product. By supplying artwork you also reduce the setup charge. A scan of your letterhead, business card or envelope is not considered artwork.

What if I don't have a high-resolution logo file?

A clean sample of an existing form can be used as artwork if it is printed in dark ink and has no screens or shaded areas. Mail with your order to the address below.

If you prefer, we can also re-create your artwork. There will be a setup charge in addition to the printing charge added to your invoice. This charge covers the cost for typesetting, artwork, negatives and plates to produce your order.

If we discover that artwork, revisions or logo creation are necessary to produce a quality job, we will discuss this with you prior to going to press. We do not want youto be surprised by unexpected charges.

How does your FREE inventory service work?

Has your company ever been in a panic because you've just used your last box of invoices and need more fast? Or maybe you just don't have the space to store boxes of forms. We can solve these common problems by warehousing your products for you-for FREE.

Here's how it works. When many of our customers place orders for forms, checks or envelopes,they have us store half the order. Once they use the last box at their location, they simply call and have us release their product from our inventory. Then, a replacement order is produced to insure they never deplete their stock.
