Can I add a logo to my awards?
Yes, on some awards we can add a logo. Awards which can accommodate a logo will include an "add a logo" option. There is a one time charge to set-up a logo that is noted with each award. There is no additional charge beyond the initial logo fee to add the same logo to other items in the same order as long as the items include an add a logo option. Please make a note of those products in the order notes section. The only exception is on screen-printed or engraved acrylic or crystal awards. With these awards a set-up charge will apply to each different size.
Logos must be sent in one of the following file formats: .eps, .ai,.tiff, or a .jpg file at 300 dpi or above. If your logo is not in one of these formats or of poor quality, we can typically recreate it for an additional $25.00 to $40.00 fee depending on complexity. Logos should be sent by uploading your file via our upload feature or by email after you place the order. Please include your order number.
Logos will be printed in color (if provided in color) on trophy plates, plaques, full color imprinted acrylic awards, etc. (as shown below), but will appear etched on laser engraved items. Sorry, but we cannot match PMS colors except on screen-printed acrylic awards. When logos are printed on gold or silver plate colors may change slightly once printed. If your colors must be exact, we recommend using a black and white logo.
Once your logo is on file with us you can use it at no charge for subsequent orders. Simply make a note in the order notes section. We keep logos on file for a period of one year.
Adding a logo to your order can increase the production time as we need to produce a proof and email that to you for approval. We provide a free proof with a logo fee. In general expect to add 1-2 business days of extra time. For orders requiring quick turnaround we advise using a rush option or expedited shipping options to insure adequate time to reach you.
Where does my logo go?
All logos and any text that you enter is printed on a silver or gold metal plate (whichever matches your award) and that plate is attached to the base of your trophy or award. Logos submitted for an engraved crystal award or acrylic award are either engraved into the surface of the item or screen-printed (depending on customer choice). All orders that include a logo will be sent a proof for approval prior to production. The price of this proof is included in the logo set-up charge.
Any artwork that is provided must be sent in one of the following file formats: .eps, .ai,.tiff, or a .jpg file at 300 dpi or above. If your artwork is not in one of these formats or of poor quality, we can typically recreate it for an additional $25.00 to $40.00 fee depending on complexity. If this is the case you will be notified by customer service and quoted a price.
Logos should be sent by uploading your file via our upload feature or by email after you place the order. Please include your order number.
What is a set-up fee and why do I have to pay it?
A set-up fee is an expense we incur in setting up our machinery to
complete your job and for changing from one job to another. A set-up
fee is not an artwork fee. Most of our items are not subject to a
set-up fee. Each engraved or imprinted acrylic award or engraved
crystal award has a set-up charge that applies with each new order. The
fee applies if you include a logo or not. We do provide a free proof for each item that includes a set-up fee.
Premium Artwork Service
We offer a "Premium Artwork Service" package for a flat fee of $15 per order.
This service allows the flexibility for many custom touches including
creating our own design for a plaque, t-shirt or other item or to
specify a particular font, add or change color color, and/or change the
size of your personalized text and more. Our custom art service puts you
in the driver's seat.
To add this service, please select the "Premium Artwork Service" option
in the shopping cart by clicking the box next to it so that is has a
check mark. Please specify what you want in the order notes section and
you will be emailed a proof for approval. We allow one proof revision
without additional charge. In limited cases we may not be able to
modify an item as you want. When this happens you will be contacted and
your money for this service will be refunded.
Please note that our standard font for all trophies and awards is
Arial Narrow printed in black. Font is normally sized to fit the area
available and printed in the same size for all lines of text. Selecting
this option allows you to change the text to a different font, or
change color from our standard black, or change the size of the font for
an individual name or name of the award or all of the above.
