End User: In House Design Service

Our In-House Design Team are ready and waiting to impress you with amazing design proofs in record time! During the last 15 years we have built up a reputation for not only providing top quality products but more importantly, top quality, world class, advertising agency level creative designs.

What do we need from you?

Email your Logo to us in Vector PDF Format. Make sure when you zoom in close on your logo that it stays crisp and does not pixelate. If it does pixelate it means your logo is not a true Vector PDF logo. If you only have a jpeg logo please do not save it as a pdf logo, it will still not work. It might mean that we will have to redraw or source your logo.

 

My logo is not Vector pdf, what now?

If your logo is not a true Vector PDF Logo we will have to Re Draw it from scratch. Logo Re Draws are charged at R595 ex vat per hour and depending on the complexity and detail required can take up to anything between 1 or 6 hours. Only once we receive your logo will we be able to quote on the amount of hours needed to redraw your logo. Logo re draws include your font or similar if we are unable to find your specific font. Logo redraw costs will be quoted prior to any redraw or design work commences.

Sourcing of logo’s, images, and Telephonic consultations:

It is quite common that our design team are required to source Vector Pdf logo’s and or images if required if you do not have them. Sourcing Vector Pdf Logo’s work out cheaper and faster than redrawing from scratch. Sourcing is charged at R195 ex vat, per hour. Usually, 1 or 2 hours is required. It is also quite common that clients sometimes prefer to phone the designer they are interacting with to ask them to make Small Changes, or to discuss Look and Feel changes. We prefer changes be made via email so as to have a paper trail of changes made and final approvals. Please note: Changes requested via Telephone or e mail count towards your 2 x Free Changes. Additional changes will be billed at R195 ex vat, per change.

Design Brief

It is important that you provide us with a detailed Design Brief. Your Design Brief needs to explain the look and feel, what colours would you want, swishes, special effects and so on. This needs to be sent to us via email and not telephonically. The better your Design Brief is, the quicker we can create what you are after thereby saving time and money. 

Product Specific Design Templates:

If you prefer to do your own artwork creation, or you have an in house graphic designer, then simply follow the steps below:

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/

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 practise 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, additional costs for us to fix the artwork in house will be quoted on.

Your Corporate / Pantone Colours

 

 

If your Brand Identity has specific colours, ie: PANTONE COLOURS, you need to supply us with these please. It is of vital importance to make us aware of these PANTONE COLOURS as what you see on your screen is by no means 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.
