If the art is for multiple color imprint, please provide registration marks. Providing artwork larger than actual size will allow us to reduce it and will provide a better finished product. If your art contains shading, it should be submitted at actual size with a 45 line screen. Electronic Artwork may be submitted via disk (DVD/CD) or email. We accept both Mac and PC files. PLEASE include P.O.# in subject line. Our email address is:
