Please note that most email service providers do not allow emailing files bigger than 10MB. For large files please login at my.luscangroup.com and go to "Art Centre" to upload your artwork. Our online file upload supports up to 1000MB file size. We also have a FTP site for large file uploads. Please contact us for more info.

ARTWORK FEES

Artwork clean-up, touch-ups, typesetting, or resizing is free of charge. There may be an extra charge involved if we need to vectorize your logo (from low resolution bitmap). In case of art charges, we will always authorize them with you before proceeding.

LOGO PLACEMENT AND SIZING

Unless a specific size is indicated on your order, Luscangroup will recommend the most appropriate size for your imprint. If no imprint area is indicated, we will recommend the area most suitable for the artwork and method specified.

ART SPECIFICATIONS

Embroidery: DST. If digitizing is required, please send art in an acceptable camera-ready format.

Laser Engraving: Art supplied for laser engraving must be completely vectorized and cannot have any tints, strokes or colors (images must be completely comprised of 100% solid black fills).

4 Color Process: Files supplied for 4 color process must conform to the following standards: minimum resolution must be 300 dots per inch or greater @ 100% size, tints can range between 0% and 100% and can be comprised of multiple colors. Note that a minimum of 1/8" bleed from actual size of product is required for any 4 color process imprint bleeding over the edge of the decoration area. The use of straight borders close to the edge is not recommended for these products. Please be advised that due to fluctuations in material, temperature and process there will be noticeable variation in color when producing 4 color process jobs. Exact PMS color matching cannot be guaranteed for all 4 color process imprints and a customer supplied color hard copy will be mandatory for all jobs of this nature.

Other Methods: Vector artwork (.eps, .ai, or .svg). All fonts must be converted to curves to avoid font substitutions. Screen printing (silk screening) requires color separation for each print color.

Font Sizes & Lines: In most cases fonts must be 6pt or bigger, lines should be 0.5pt or thicker. For embroidery and debossing/embossing fonts must be at least 12pt size.

CAMERA READY ART SPECIFICATIONS

Camera ready art is artwork that can be scanned without any preparation or changes. Type and image are sharp, clean and consistent in density. Art is black and white only and does not contain any colors or tints (shades of color/grey). Digital files must be with output at 600 dpi or higher @ 100% size.  Business cards, letterhead, photocopies, hand drawings, etc. are not considered camera ready art. Any logo or artwork taken from websites is low resolution (72 dpi) and is not camera ready art. 

THE "DISTORTION" FACTOR

Due to the varied nature and multidimensional curvatures existing on lot of products, a slight distortion of unknown degree may occur when imprinting some products with square, rectangular or round images.

PREFERRED FILE FORMATS

We can work with most file formats as long as the image is not too low quality. Here's the list of preference:

  • Vector Files: AI, EPS, SVG, PDF (note that some EPS or PDF files are not vector files)
  • Bitmap/Raster Files: PSD, PNG, JPG, TIFF, GIF, BMP, etc
  • Office Documents: DOC, DOCX, XLS, PPT, PPS. Due to complications opening these files on different computers, we'd like avoid these files whenever possible. But if that's all you have, please do send it..

In the example below the rural destination surcharge is $75.00. Sometimes we can ship by Canada Post Regular Parcel to avoid these extra charges.
