Design Pointers

Vinyl comes in a huge range of options
creating very cool effects:  reflective,
chrome, etched, frosted, holographic,
brushed metal, gold leaf and more!

Cut vinyl and printed graphics can be mixed

We can layer cut vinyl for outlines and
drop shadows

Contrast and sans-serif fonts improve

The color you see on computer screen will
not equal the PMS number, so don't worry

Any printed image for extended use on
vehicles or exterior signage should be
Vehicle Graphic Pointers

Window glass curvature will distort images

Most factory logos can be removed to
increase the letterable area

White on tinted windows gives the best

Vinyl on hoods, wheel wells, rocker panels
will see a lot of abuse, requiring special

Rivets will impact your project: installation
time, cost and material selection

We cannot apply vinyl over wax, rust or
unsound paint
Have Artwork?  Great!

We are happy to work with artwork you own,
ideally created and provided in either Adobe
Illustrator (CS6 or lower) or Corel Draw v12.

Save the file as vector / line art with all text
converted to curves / outlines.  Note your
fonts; include a print-out or send a pdf / jpg.

Email the file to
or drop-off a CD / flash-drive at the shop.

For prints we can accommodate very high
resolution tiff, gif or jpg files. If we do not
believe your files will produce satisfactory
results, we will let you know.

We can also work with Photoshop and
InDesign files, but not for all applications.
No Computer / True Graphics File?

We can work with you to create / re-create
artwork.  Design fees will apply - but you will
own and have on disc the art files.  Great for
business cards, print advertising, embroidery
and more!
Need a new Logo or Corporate Identity?

For a fee, our on-staff graphic artists are
available to design logos or refresh your
corporate identity.  

You will own the art file, which will be provided
to you in a variety of file formats for future use.
