Limits to Keep in Mind
The Resolution of Photos Sent
If you send us a low-resolution photo, we can't make it high-resolution. Files that are low-resolution require recreating the artwork from scratch.
Owning the Image
Please do not send us designs or photos that are copyrighted. If you do send artwork that has a copyright, we will not be responsible for custom printing it.
Detailed Logo Artwork
Designing artwork from scratch or touching up graphics will add extra fees to your final order. This is because more time is spent with these files than others.
Working with Pantones
Our Free Design Services do not include matching Pantone colors. This feature is being worked into our online design suite and should be available in a short time.
If you have any questions about our Free Design Services program, please contact us with our live chat feature, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 877-503-5247.

Is this entire service really free?
The Free Design Services include adding your logo or photos to our product template, making small adjustments and retouches to the files, and fixing any color issues. If this takes up a lot of time or needs to be done from scratch, a fee will be added. We charge $60/hour and bill in 15-minute increments.
What custom products include your free design services?
Our Free Design Services are offered for all of our custom products, which includes flags, banners, tents, tablecloths, yard signs, backdrops, and more.
Are there stock photos available for print?

Will the designers be able to customize a logo for me?
For creating a business logo from scratch, please give our graphic designers clear specifications for what you want. In addition to customizing the logo, our team can also retouch photos you send and make your files the perfect printing size. Keep in mind, however, that designing a new logo takes up time and a fee of $60 will be added per hour.
Can you use a specific font?
Our graphic designers have a library of fonts to choose from when creating your design. If you have a specific font in mind, please upload the font and we will use it in your design. Add your Design ID# to the message to ensure prompt delivery.
What is a “vector” image?
“Vector” is a term designers use to refer to size-adjustable graphics. This means that the size of the image can be scaled without ruining its quality. Printers prefer images like this because they offer the best results. Vector images come in file types such as AI, SVG, and EPS.
A raster-based image can be placed inside an AI file but this does not make it vector artwork. A raster-based image placed into a vector format file will still contain resolution and cannot be scaled without quality loss. A comparison image of a logo created in vector and raster format is below.
Note: Graphics must be created in vector format using a professional design program such as Adobe Illustrator. Placing a raster image into Illustrator and saving it as a vector file (.eps, .ai, or .svg) will not make it a vector file.
