These cups are great for events, meetings, safety programs, and seminars - any place you want to influence coffee and hot beverage drinkers.
General Art Guidelines The following outlines the production specifications and additional charges for the successful completion of your project.
Art Specs Art Specifications: Art must be output-ready digital files and should conform to the art specs found on our "Art Check List".
Proofs: With each order and reorder you will be emailed a FREE 3-D color PDF proof of the art adjusted for the curve and taper of the cup. While not an accurate color proof, this PDF allows you to verify that the art is correct and generally the correct color.
Color Targets: Send samples of printing or items to match for color when your order is placed. We can't match your target if we can't see it! PMS/Spot Colors: All PMS/Spot colors will be converted to 4-Color Process. When referencing a PMS color in a process color print, refer to a Pantone® COLOR BRIDGE® to see how the color translates when converted to CMYK. Most colors change when converted to CMYK.
Registration: Please allow 1/16" registration variance of the print to the product perimeter. We make every attempt to line up art in the seam area, but we cannot guarantee it.
Email: Submit files smaller than 3MB via email to your Sales Counselor. Remember to also send a printed sample of what you expect the art to look like.
Offset Lithography: All images are printed as submitted. Image resolution should be set at 300ppi – remember that effective image resolution is decreased when an image is enlarged in a layout program; so, images should be sized at 100%. When color is critical, we always recommend either a mock-up proof or a production proof.
Templates and Warping: Our standard templates are rectangles which are designed to facilitate adjusting the art for the curve of the cup. This adjustment, referred to as "warping", will slightly affect how all elements in the image look.
Oversized/Heavy Items: Some of our larger, bulky and heavier items are delivered via Oversized Delivery or Standard Truck Delivery. Additional shipping charges will apply based on the weight/size of the item. These charges are applied in addition to standard shipping and handling charges for each item.
Extremely heavy orders or items that cannot ship via UPS Ground due to their weight and/or size ship via LTL shipping. Please allow extra days in transit for delivery based on the availability of the carriers.
If an order will be delivered via LTL freight line, we may contact you to arrange a window of time for delivery. Orders shipped via LTL freight line to a residential address are strictly delivered curbside unless otherwise specified by customer (example: additional charges may be required for inside delivery). Our shipping LTL fees do not include any delivery service beyond curbside - customers are responsible for any extra charges incurred for any extra services. In addition, customers are responsible for additional charges incurred due to missed delivery appointments or re-deliveries.
Hazardous and Other Items: Glassware and Hazmat items may also incur delivery surcharges because of the additional handling and processing time to ship these items. Due to federal and state shipping regulations, some items cannot be shipped via plane. These items can only be shipped using the UPS Standard Ground delivery service.
