FONTS & LINE RULES
•MINIMUM SIZES if free floating on the bag: 18 point fonts.
Thin serif font styles are not recommended.
3 point lines.

•PLEASE CONVERT YOUR FONTS TO OUTLINES/PATHS/CURVES within your program. If we do not have the exact font you used, the text in your art will "default" to a less attractive font changing the look of your design. Converting your fonts to outlines, paths, or curves, eliminates this hazard by changing your fonts into vector shapes. This ensures that your artwork will print exactly how you expect it to look. If you choose not to convert your fonts to outlines, please send us the font you used. We use Macintosh computers, so please send only Macintosh compatible or Open- Type fonts. We adhere to all font software licensing parameters and guarantee your font will only be used for the printing of your job.

PANTONE® SOLID FORMULA COLORS:
PMS solid colors are converted to corresponding CMYK formulas to achieve close equivalents. Please consult a Pantone® Plus Color Bridge Coated guidebook to view how your PMS solid color will look once converted to CMYK. PMS color matching is not available.

A Special Note About Our Imprinting Processes
Imprinting takes place on a bag which is already constructed. This means that some restrictions, such as a fold or a gusset in the bag, may impact its printability and available imprint area. Due to our printing process, all imprints will have a very narrow outline of bag color around the artwork. All COLORVISTA imprints have an adhesive layer that may show up as a transparent or frosty outline around the art. It will show up more on darker bags.
