Design Templates and DTP Set Up Costs:

All our products have Product Specific Design Templates. These Design Templates can be e mailed to you on request or can be downloaded on our website: https://www.dpiconcepts.co.za/templates/

It is quite common that the time our production department spend on importing ‘print ready’ artwork received commonly takes up allot of time, sometimes multiple hours. Your artwork may contain multiple layers and gradients to name a few. It is up to our DTP team to import and then export each layout into the correct format that our Printer Rip Software uses, hence the DTP Set up charges listed below:

A Standard Once Off DTP Set Up fee of R195.00 ex vat will be charged on all orders requiring basic set up and electronic proofs.

DTP Set Up fees for complex artwork will be quoted on once received. 

Format & Additional Charges:

Final Print Ready Artwork must be sent to us in: High resolution Vector Pdf (preferred), Adobe Illustrator or Corel Draw. (Don’t forget to convert all fonts to paths) Bleed is required as indicated on our design templates, it is standard practice to keep all text at least 100mm from the edges allowing a safety area. Please make sure you remove the bleed lines before saving final print files.

 

Please note, if the print ready artwork received is not to specification, ie: Not in our latest product specific templates, fonts have not been converted, images or logos are low resolution, artwork is cut off, needs to be edited in any way, additional costs for us to fix the artwork in house will be charged at R495 ex vat per hour.

Pantone / Corporate Colours

VERY IMPORTANT! If your logo has specific colours, usually PANTONE COLOURS, you need to supply us with these please. It is of vital importance to make us aware of these special PANTONE COLOURS as what you see on your screen is by no means exactly what will be printed on the actual fabric or pvc we print on. We cannot take responsibility for colour variations if these PANTONE COLOURS are not given to us.
