Art & design charges
are one time charges for the services to produce film positives for
screen preparation. Artwork should be mailed to our offices with
your order. Due to poor quality, artwork faxed to our offices is not
considered camera ready. The term "Camera Ready" artwork refers to
artwork that is on a white background and the design is rendered in
solid black, ready to be used as is. "Camera Ready" artwork requires
no touch-up or modification prior to its use. Any artwork which
requires our artists to get your artwork ready for use will incur
additional art charges. A deposit of at least half of the art quote
