answers any questions regarding account status. Distributors that send in a
complete purchase order will receive an acknowledgement confirming the details

2. Sending Artwork:
The quality of your imprint
begins with your artwork. Remember, perfect artwork means we will not have to do
any paste up or touch up, prepare any art or logos, set any type, put crop marks
or center marks. If your artwork is complete and perfect, production time will
start immediately. Please note that delivery will run longer if this does not
happen. Your graphic designer or advertising agency can supply the artwork.
