FAQ

Artwork Design

Can ArtworkZone create a logo or a design for me if I don't have one already?
Yes. Our artists are decorating experts; therefore, anything we create will be designed for problem-free display in digital landscapes as well as easy imprinting on promotional products and stationery items.
We have an artist on staff as a full-time/part-time employee... how will ArtworkZone benefit us?
Many companies already rely on an employee or local freelance artist. ArtworkZone need not replace these important local relationships. However, the Artwork Storage Library feature of ArtworkZone gives any artist a convenient and secure place where artwork can be viewed and managed by employees who may not understand graphics software or high-speed delivery protocols.
Who does the artwork?
Professional graphic designers work for ArtworkZone. All artists are based right here in the United States.
What if I need to communicate with the artist? What type of proof will I receive?
It's easy to communicate your comments and changes to the person in our studio who is responsible for your project. When submitting any new project or reviewing any proof, your ideas and remarks become a permanent part of every transaction with a message history that you can review at any time.
What type of proof will I receive?
Your ArtworkZone proofs will typically be created as PDF documents so that you can view them with Adobe Acrobat Reader. Depending on how you have Acrobat Reader installed on your computer, the proof will either display inside your web browser or download to your own computer.
Can ArtworkZone do digitizing?
No, ArtworkZone is unable to digitize artwork for embroidery. If you have raster artwork that needs to be converted to a digital format, we recommend that you first have it converted to vector format with ArtworkZone. You can then take that vector artwork to an embroidery specialist to have it digitized.
Will ArtworkZone be able to convert my artwork to EPS format?
There are times when artwork of other formats will be converted vector files that are typically saved in the EPS format. However, not all artwork benefits from the EPS format and conversions can sometimes be far more costly than obtaining the proper file at the outset of a project.
Is everything produced as an EPS file?
ArtworkZone will always produce and store files in the format requested on your order form, whether that is a vector file, bitmap file, metafile, PDF file or page layout document. As a general rule, the vector format is preferred for its versatility.
Can I keep a backup copy for myself?
Yes, you can easily download the file from your storage area to your hard drive at any time.
Will I be able to know the price before any artwork is done?
Yes! ArtworkZone artists will review each order you submit and determine whether it falls into our simple, standard, complex, or challenging price category. If a particular job exceeds the scope of the challenging category, it will be quoted on a custom basis. No work will begin until you approve the artist's quotation.
Does ArtworkZone have an hourly rate?
The wide variety of design options we offer requires us to match each project to the best talent and schedule available. We don’t always know in advance how long a project will take and we like to give our clients a price quote we can stick with. For this reason, we charge based on project difficulty.
How does the proof review and approval system work?
When your artwork is ready for you to review, your artist will prepare a PDF document for you. You will be sent a proof alert message via email with a hyperlink that will take you directly to the proof.
What is the delivery time?
Most artwork projects are completed by the next business day.
How will I know the price if it goes beyond the scope of the regular price range?
Your ArtworkZone artist will advise you of the exact price of any artwork project, especially those which go beyond the scope of the basic published rates.
Does ArtworkZone send me an invoice for each artwork project?
Your ArtworkZone account is settled automatically by credit card. Balances are kept automatically and you can review your account at any time by logging on to your password protected account. Each artwork project is summarized with totals so that you can easily determine the cost of any project for billing your customers.
How does ArtworkZone handle fonts?
ArtworkZone maintains an extensive library of almost 20,000 fonts. Our studio professionals know how to prepare artwork files containing text so that the absence of fonts does not present a problem.

Artwork Storage Library

Why is storage important?
Artwork files are valuable business assets that can be 'at risk' if they are loosely stored in a folder on a computer. If your digital files are accidentally lost or damaged, the business consequences can be expensive and detrimental. Storing your files with ArtworkZone provides the security and protection your important artwork files deserve.
Can I organize the contents of the storage library?
Yes, you can create labels and subdivisions in any scheme that helps you manage and maintain your artwork files.
How many files I can store in my library?
Your storage library holds an unlimited number of files. The first 25 files are stored free of charge. You can enlarge your storage library in increments of 50 files at a time. Each increment of 50 files is charged $30/year.

General Artwork Issues

What kind of software do I need?
You don't need any graphic arts software at all! Leave that expense to us! We do recommend that you have a current copy of the FREE Adobe Acrobat Reader for viewing artwork proofs.
Do I need a high-speed internet connection?
No, an ordinary dial-up modem will enable you to use SAGE ArtworkZone with the same quality and speed as any other website you might typically visit. However, if you are uploading any files larger than 2MB, you will appreciate the faster speeds that are offered by many DSL and cable internet providers.
Do you charge for author’s alterations?
Author's alterations are chargeable as extra costs, at the discretion of the artist. No two situations are alike, but as a general rule, we recommend giving us as much information as possible to begin every project without surprises.
How does ArtworkZone handle artwork that is not electronic?
Customers can send physical artwork items to the QTI corporate office by mail or fax.
Who is responsible for errors?
Ultimately, the person who signs any proof approval is responsible for errors. That is why we strongly advise you to examine proofs carefully before approving them.
What if I just need artwork cleaned up or converted to EPS?
The concepts of “cleanup” and “conversion” are misleading because they give the impression that the procedures are easy and automatic. In fact, cleanup and conversion can be either quick or very time-consuming, depending on the file in question. Each file is evaluated on its own.
Does ArtworkZone offer a clipart library?
No, ArtworkZone does not maintain a clipart or generic vector graphic library. It is generally more cost and time effective to have a skilled ArtworkZone artist create a simple, custom graphic than to search for generic clipart.
