DESIGN SPECIFICATIONS - In order to provide the highest quality emblem we would like to encourage customers to adhere to the following design suggestions.  Allow 1/4" around the entire edge of the design for the merrowed border and clearance.  This 1/4" includes 1/8" for a standard merrowed border and 1/8" for the clearance between the border and any copy or designs.  All lettering should be a minimum of 3/16" tall.  Recommended size of lettering is at least 1/4" tall.

MATCHING COLORS - Please provide color swatches, actual emblems or PMS colors whenever possible.  We cannot always match PMS colors exactly; however, we will do our best to match any specific colors as closely as possible.

FLEX-TAGS

Each Flex-Tag is a unique creation with it's own individual characteristics ranging from colors, shapes, textures, 3D representations, gradients, etc. so there are not a lot of hard and fast rules to design.  The sky is the limit on your creation.  We welcome your ideas and will work with you to create a product that is exclusively yours.

3D DESIGN SPECIFICATIONS -  As Flex-Tags allow for different depths of design, please indicate areas of different depths on your design.  Depths vary from  0.4mm to 2mm.  All lettering should be a minimum of .08" tall (approx. 1/32" tall).
