FAQS for Poly Transfers

 

PRODUCTION TIME

Most new orders ship from our office in 2-3 weeks from the time all artwork has been approved.  If Poly Transfers are needed for a special event, the date must be specified on the order.  An associate will notify you prior to production if we will be unable to meet your required deadline.

PRE-PRODUCTION SAMPLES

Artwork will be provided for approval prior to production at no additional charge.  If an in-hand sample is required, there will be a $50 set up charge plus  $5 per sample requested.  If the sample is approved without significant changes, the set up charge will be refunded.  In-hand samples will add up to 2 weeks to the normal order process.

ARTWORK REQUIREMENTS

Vector artwork is required for all orders.  Artwork should be sent via email, preferably in one of the following vector formats: .ai, .eps, .pdf.   If vector artwork is not available, you may be charged for artwork production.  Charges will be quoted according to complexity of design.  Please send art directly to art@emblemconcepts.com.

MATCHING COLORS - Please provide PMS colors for best representation.  

METALLIC & REFLECTIVE COLORS - Most colors can be produced as metallic or reflective colors, however not all colors are well suited for this process.  Please discuss specific colors with our representative prior to artwork production.

Silver offers the highest retroreflectivity rating at a 350cd/lux/m2 or more.  Light colors offer the next highest rating at 200cd/lux/m2 or more and dark colors offer a rating of 150cd/lux/m2 or below.  Retroreflectivity will reduce somewhat with repeated laundering.
