If you would like to use the same image/screen but want to change colors, there will be a $10 color change fee for each time the screen needs to be cleaned and the color of ink changed.

Design Preparation, Artwork, and Color Separation Fees:

Our rate for graphic design preparation and separation for artwork is $25/hour, with a minimum of 1 hour billed. If your artwork is sized to print and already color separated, this fee will be waived. We request print-ready files as separate pdfs. for each color in 100% black as well as a pdf of the final composited image. If you have questions about whether or not your art is print-ready, please let us know.

Artwork files should be sized to print at 300dpi, even if it is a vector image. For vector, we accept .pdf and .ai files. For raster, please send psd. files.  PLEASE remember to turn your text into either a rasterized layer (raster) or into outlines (vector)!
