Art Specifications

For details on art specifications, please visit our art specifications page.

Art charges may apply if we must adjust your artwork to be compatible with our printing processes. We will provide a price quote prior to any art services being performed.

Plate Charges

Spot-color plate charges are based on overall imprint area at a base charge of $1.80 per square inch, with a minimum plate charge of $60.00 per color per side. Process-color art, halftones, full-bleed, oversized imprints, or art with fine screens are subject to review for plate charges. A plate is needed for each color and each side being printed.

Production: Design Center Info

Production schedules vary based on seasonal demands; please call for our fastest delivery time. Timing will be based on final proof approval.

Color tints/shades/tones may fluctuate up to 5% within a print run or reorder. Due to the semi-transparent nature of ink, imprint colors will change when printed on colored materials. PMS color matching is not available for foil hot-stamp.

Rush production schedules may be available and must be pre-approved. Please contact us for details. In fact, we can meet just about any deadline but sometimes our rush production is required. Furthermore, we also have rush shipping options.

Over/Under Runs—Percentages may vary on certain products. Due to production parameters on most plastic bag orders, we anticipate over or under runs not to exceed 25% on quantities of 5–9M, 20% on 10–24M, 15% on 25–49M, and 10% on 50–100M. All over run quantities are subject to invoicing.

Cancellations—Cancellations must be in writing and are subject to all incurred costs, including set-up, plate, and art charges.

Proofs—Paper proofs, either faxed or emailed, are provided at no charge. Virtual proofs are available on select products. Due to printing dynamics, pre-production or color proofs are not available on all products. Call for details.

Shipping

As it is common fo Bag Promos Direct to ship orders early, we reserve the right to determine the appropriate shipping method to meet your deadline.

Special Freight Fees—Additional fees are incurred for COD, inside, residential, international, or re-delivery, as well as deliveries to Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico. International freight and duty fees—with the exception of Canada—must be charged on customer’s freight account. Custom Green Promos reserves the right to submit supplemental invoices after the original invoice for additional fees, freight, duties, and taxes as necessary.

Ask Us About Eco-Friendly Bags

The Society of Plastics Industry (SPI) code is a universal recycling symbol with a corresponding number that identifies the plastic composition of our bags. Our paper products carry the same universal symbol as plastic; however, paper is not assigned a number. You will find these symbols on product pages to identify the type of material used and to help you determine the applicability of recycling in your area. For more information, see our product safety and recycling page.

Eco friendly bags are a great way to promote your brand and also do your part in going green. In fact, all of our reusable grocery bags are reusable. As a result, they are eco friendly and great for the earth.

Art Specifications

General Artwork Information – Design Center Info

We accept a variety of digital art formats for either spot or 4-color process designs. If you have questions about your art, we’ll be happy to review it for imprinting compatibility on our products. All artwork must be pre-approved for final production. Please include a hard-copy printout, or PDF proof, with colors indicated. Should we be required to adjust your artwork to be compatible with our printing capabilities, art charges may apply. You will be provided a price quote prior to any art services being performed.

Electronic Platform

We are Macintosh OS X based. PC files must have fonts converted to curves, paths, or outlines, and be saved or exported to a Mac-compatible format.

Art Placement and Sizing

Please create your art to the size it will be printed. We can help you get started by providing a product template that will aid you with design and layout. All art is placed and sized proportionately per bag blueprints as specified on the purchase order.

Artwork Submission

E-mail: Send files to sales@bagpromosdirect.com (50 MB limit). Please insert your P.O. number and company name in the subject field. Also include a digital copy (PDF or JPEG) of your design so we can confirm the integrity of your electronic submission. We suggest that you compress (zip) your file or folder for transmission efficiency and protection from corruption.

Media: Macintosh-compatible CD, DVD, or Flash Drive, labeled with your P.O. number, company name, and contact information. Please include a printout of your art for proofing purposes along with your disk. On orders with multiple spot-colors, please indicate color breaks on your printout.

Preparing Your Art

For artwork using multiple spot-colors, please allow for approximate press movement between colors as follows: Plastic bags: 0.0625″ (1/16 inch) Paper bags: 0.125″ (1/8 inch) All art is placed and sized proportionately per bag blueprints and as specified on the purchase order.

Fonts

Please convert your fonts to outlines/paths/curves within your program. If we do not have the exact font used, the text in your art will default to a different font, changing the look of your design. Converting your fonts to outlines, paths, or curves eliminates this hazard. This is because it changes your fonts into vector shapes. This ensures your artwork will print and look exactly as designed. Furthermore, if you choose not to convert your fonts to outlines, please send us the font you used. Please send only Macintosh compatible or Open-Type fonts. In addition to that, if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to also contact our art department as well as customer service.

Minimum Sizes

Positive prints: 10-point fonts and 1-point lines.

Reverese prints: Varies by design and bag material. We need to review fonts and line widths for best results. Plan to use larger point sizes than those used in positive prints. Thin serif fonts are not recommended.

Halftones

For best results, artwork containing halftones must be reviewed by us for approval. Most halftones are printed with a 45-55 line screen. Color percentages for art containing halftones should not be less than 20% or greater than 60%. Areas less than 20% may not print and areas greater than 60% may fill in and become a solid color. Designs that contain gradients or blends may need factory pre-press alterations for optimum print quality and will require a final, signed proof approval.

Programs and File Formats: Design Center Info

Vector Art

Vector art is preferred. This is because vector images can be resized without any loss of quality. If we need to change the size of your artwork, it will not become blurry or pixelated. Please note that placing or importing photographs, bitmap, or raster images into a drawing program does not convert them into vector artwork. If a placed/imported Photoshop-type image (EPS, TIFF, JPEG, or PSD) is necessary, the original file should be included, 300 ppi minimum, and pre-approved by Bag Promos Direct.

Resolution

Higher resolution is always better. In fact, we recommend raster images be created at 300 ppi minimum. Furthermore, they should be created to the largest size they will be printed. This is because the resolution at which they are created determines their quality. In fact, photographs or any artwork created in programs such as Adobe Photoshop or Corel Photo-Paint, are raster (or bitmap) images. Enlarging a raster or bitmap image will degrade their print quality to a possibly unacceptable condition.

We accept the following programs and file formats:

ADOBE ILLUSTRATOR—Preferred Vector Art Program

Save as native Illustrator .ai file. If your file contains linked images, please PACKAGE the file to include all fonts and links. Alternatively, you may save the file as an Illustrator Default PDF with the Preserve Illustrator Editing Capabilitiesbox check-marked.

ADOBE PHOTOSHOP—Our Preferred Raster Art Program

CMYK color, high quality 300 ppi minimum resolution at the size to be printed. PSD, TIFF, EPS, or JPEG formats. When isolating your art from the background, please use exact, sharp-edged clipping masks or clipping paths.

ADOBE INDESIGN CS4-CC2017 (Macintosh Version Only)

Please PACKAGE the file and include all fonts and linked images. Please don’t use any third-party plug-ins—if they are used we’ll be unable to process your art.

COREL DRAW—Version X8 and Lower

Save as native Corel .cdr file or Adobe PDF.

Please package the file to include any linked images and fonts.
