Screens, Graduated Fills, or Pantographs.
Please remove all screens, graduated fills and pantograph designs from your artwork. Simply indicate the location of screening, or send us samples of the artwork with and without the screen.
Send backprinting copy and pantographs in solid black art, and we will screen them in. Our standard screen is 20%. However, we can print any percent you request.
Bendays are screened background logos. Remove the benday from the main form and send it as solid black artwork. Indicate the benday location and approximate size to ensure accurate placement and composition. Standard shading is 12% unless otherwise requested.
If colours are not touching on artwork, it's not necessary to send colour separations. Indicate colour placements and we will make the separations.
We can drop in blockout. Just indicate the location.
Custom Logo Samples.
Digital Art Instructions:
You may also send a clear black-and-white print of the custom logo, preferably original artwork. We cannot work from photographs, raised print samples or sketches. The design must not contain screen tints or fine lines. Allow additional time for processing. A copy of all logo art will be retained in DFS files to expedite future orders.
DFS will absorb the full cost of the shipping, provided the dealer uses our preferred shipping method. If the dealer chooses their own shipping method, the full cost of shipping will be invoiced to the dealer.
DFS bills Dealers only. All orders are invoiced separately after shipping, net 30 days from date of invoice. We ship on open account, subject to credit approval. DFS does not offer COD shipping.
