Graphic design and clean up

Original artwork design and artwork clean-up starts at $45 per hour.
Low-res and blurry artwork files that are not ideal for printing may need to be reworked for quality printing.



We offer complimentary mock-ups to assure that the final product matches the client’s vision and expectations.   Mock-ups are an approximation of how the final product will look.  Please review carefully and get in touch with any questions prior to approving the mock-up.  Once the mock-up is approved the layout and art is final.


Color matching

For custom colors we recommend submitting Pantone Coated PMS colors as the most accurate way to ensure we print the exact color for your design.


Otherwise we can pick colors closest to the artwork on the screen which may be close but is less accurate than selecting and mixing specific Pantone colors.

Below is a sample tag print which can be used as a guideline or edited as needed to fit your brand and artwork.

Below is a sample tech-pack to give you an idea of what information and guidelines are helpful when setting up a print job.  While not required they can help dial in specifics for each print job.
