If your artwork is more than one color, each color should be in a different layer and all colors should be included in the note section. Less acceptable formats (yet, still useable in some cases) are high resolution (300dpi or better) .tif files. Rarely acceptable are .jpg or .gif files.

Of course!, we will provide proof within 24 hours. For most products, you will receive a PDF proof via e-mail or a black and white printed proof.
