Color Printing FAQ
What type of ink is used?
We use a UV-stable ink that's designed for indoor use with some limited outdoor use on select materials (please email us to verify). It's the same type of ink used in the auto industry.
What type of images files do you accept?
For UV-printing upgrade, we recommend vector files for logos and clipart. This includes EPS, AI, or PDF. For photographs, a high resolution JPG or PNG should be fine.
How do I request a specific text color?
Just type your request in the Further Comments section of any order form.
Is a color printing upgrade available on all materials?
Please look for the special icon on an item's page to verify color printing eligibility.
Do you guarantee color matching?
With UV-printing, we now offer Pantone PMS colors, at your request. We cannot always guarantee color matching without standardized colors. We try our best to match your image colors as closely as possible to the original file.
Can I send in an item to be printed?
No. We only offer color printing on our own items.
How durable is the ink?
Ink will not flake, crack, or fade with normal use. It will scratch if a knife is applied to it. For the most durable process, please use our laser-fused engraving.
How do I care for color printed items?
Hand wash only. Scrub lightly with a non-abrasive soap and water. For a lifetime of color, keep out of direct sunlight. For use in direct sunlight, please apply lacquer once a year.
Can you print full color photos?
Yes! Please email your high-resolution photo or attach it to your order.
Can you print in white?
Yes. Please be aware that any white space around logos will be printed unless specified otherwise.
How large of an item can you print on?
Depending on the material, we can print items up to 48"x96"!
Is the printing flat?
The printing has a textured, raised effect with vivid color.
How do I send my image files?
On each order form, you can choose to Add Art. At this point, you can attach your image files or you can email your images to firstname.lastname@example.org
