We can usually take a small image, preferably larger than a business card, enlarge it and then add appropriate lettering. We do not charge extra for this.
Can artwork and lettering be combined?
Sure, it makes no difference what your art looks like. It can be all text or one large drawing. Often a customer will need lettering to surround their art, we call this Typesetting. We can add lettering over, under or around your logo at no extra charge. Just roughly sketch on a sheet of paper where you want your logo, the appx size, and how you want lettering added. Be sure to use Caps where desired. We can add recycling symbols like the ones found on our preprinted bags.
Your logo may look great on paper, but cloth bags are not as smooth, so those fine lines and dots used for shading won't print well. For best results, your artwork should be designed using bold lettering and heavy lines. Avoid tiny text, it will only splotch when printed. A good photocopy is usually sufficient, appx 8.5" x 11", we suggest you mail it in a large manila envelope without folding it. You may also email us the art. Please save as a PDF file and attach it to an email. We will do minor touch-ups, typesetting and enlargements at no extra charge.
A heat transfer is an economical way to get multiple color art or photographs on a bag. We print your art onto special paper using a high end color ink jet printer. Then we place the paper on a blank bag and use a heavy clamshell press to push the image onto the bag fabric for 20 seconds at 375 degrees. The result is a beautiful reproduction of your image in full color.
