Artwork & Design Basics

If you do not have access to in-house design and would like us to design your artwork, we will need
your LOGO in High Res PDF Format or Corel Draw, as well as a clear design brief explaining what you
would like on the layout, ie phone number, website, email, background colour etc. On receipt you will
be quoted one of the following:

30 mins or less – R300.00 ex VAT
30 mins to 1 hour – R550.00 ex VAT
More than 1 hour – R500.00 ex VAT per hour

All the above options include three proof revisions. Please note, this service only applies to Basic
Lay-Outs. If you require logo’s to be redrawn from scratch, images deep etched and placed, or creation
of background themes, we will require a detailed brief in order to estimate the studio time required for
the particular job after which a quote estimate will be sent to you for consideration.

Expert Tip:

If you are unsure if your Pdf Logo is good enough for us to use simply zoom in on it as close as possible, if it does not pixelate or distort, we will be able to use it. If it does distort or pixelate, you will most likely have to contact the person or company who created your logo to ask them for a high res Vector Format Pdf Version. If you are still unable to get this from them, then we will have no choice but to Re-Draw your logo from scratch, this will be quoted to you depending on the complexity of your logo.

Proofs:

Useful-tips

Useful Design Tips:

Bleed is required as indicated on our design templates, it is standard practise to keep all text at least 100mm from the edges allowing a safety area. Please make sure you remove the bleed lines before saving final print files. If specific corporate identity colours need to be matched, Pantone reference numbers need to be supplied. Only after approval is received will production commence. Print Files smaller than 15MB can be emailed to us, we recommend using Dropbox or any similar file sharing programme for larger files.

NB: A Standard Artwork Set up Fee of R200.00 ex VAT per line item will be charged on all orders (no extra changes for multiple layouts). If the artwork received is not created in our product specific design templates, or in the correct format, a notification will be sent to you informing you of possible additional artwork charges.
