What if your artwork doesn’t adhere to the above specifications?

Our in house staff of designers can help perfect your branding or can create something completely new.
These designs services are billed at $35/hour, prorated to the quarter of the hour.

What if I’m not sure if it meets the specifications?

Don’t worry! We’d never run an order that we knew would produce subpar results. If there’s an issue with
your artwork – such as the design running outside of the bleed zone or the resolution being too low to
produce a quality print – we’ll let you know before we begin manufacturing your order. Should that be the
case, you can either have your designer make the necessary changes to meet the above specifications or we
can do it for you for the additional design fee.

Tips & Information For Coaster Designs

If you use a wide range of colors, the colors will shift or get cloudy when printed on the coaster pulp board.
The pulp board is an absorbent material and some colors or fine detail may bleed into the material.
We can match Pantone colors as long as there is a CMYK value provided, however results may differ from
on-screen viewing.
