- Once we have received your completed form and artwork, we will confirm receipt and provide information on availability and timing within 2 business days.

2. Ordering Small Quantities and Fast Turnaround vs. Large Orders with Logo Lead Times.
2.1. Custom Printing Done in North America:
- We can offer printed single color logos and laser etching using this method.
- This is best if you need a quick turnaround or have small to medium sized quantities.
- See our order form for detailed information on maximum printable areas. Printing is done at American facilities.
- Minimum order quantity for custom branding is 72 units for a given style and size.
- Within the 72 units of a single style and size, you can order an assortment of colors as long as these are purchased in multiples of 6. For example, you would need to order 72 Doppio 6.5oz Tumblers to meet our minimum order requirements, but you can order these as 24 Stainless, 24 Midnight Blue, 12 Matte Black and 6 Green Tea and 6 Fuchsia.
- You are welcome to purchase more than the minimum order. All additional quantities on top of the initial 72 units must be in multiples of 24 per one style and size.
- Turnaround time is 2-5 weeks depending on project complexity.

- We can offer printed three color logos or single color laser etching.
- Turnaround time is 3-4 months depending on complexity of project.
3. Artwork File Preparation Guide
Here are some guidelines to help you prepare your artwork:
Supported File Types:
- Encapsulated PostScript (.eps)
- Adobe Illustrator (.ai)
- Scalable Vector Graphics (.svg)
- Joint Photographic Experts Group (.jpg or .jpeg) may be acceptable.
Best results are usually obtained with a “vector image” (a .ai, .eps, or .svg file). File Size: maximum 100 KB.
- Pantone Matching System (PMS) colors must be stated in artwork.
- Note: For all Pantone (PMS) colors we cannot guarantee an exact PMS match due to technical issues that sometimes occur in the printing process.
- When submitting a “master image” (a .gif, .jpg, or file), keep the resolution close to 300 or 600 dpi. If submitting a JPEG, set the quality to 80 percent or more to reduce image distortion.
- Crop your image close to the edges of the logo. Our proof preparation system resizes the image according to the space available on the product imprint area and does not differentiate between the logo and the white space surrounding it.
Text & Line Weight:
- Please bear in mind, for printing of logos and artwork, the thinner the lines or the finer the text used in a logo, the less chance there is of achieving good results. Laser etching can render thinner lines with more accuracy.
