We can assist in modifying your graphic image to an acceptable format if the file exhibits problems that may affect the print quality. Charges will be applied; however, the amount varies depending on the complexity of the design submitted. The price for artwork modification ranges from $10 - $20 per hour (this includes logo creation, photo editing, vector restoration, artwork creation, etc). Please note that you will only be allowed 3 revisions. Feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns.

The accepted graphic format that is preferred is .png. We prefer this format for 2 reasons: it is lightweight file format and it supports transparencies. Each business will has its own preferences. Other formats that we work with are Photoshop (PSD) , Adobe Illustrator (AI), Encapsulated Post Script (EPS), and Corel Draw (CDR).
