Artwork Submission

We require print-ready art per the following specifications:

  • The artboard itself should be at actual size.
  • Please submit high resolution PDF files - Vector artwork is best.
  • Include all supporting art (font, linked images, etc.).
  • Please do not include printer marks such as crop marks and print registration marks in your print-ready files.
  • To ensure that text, images, etc. do not move or disappear from your file when loaded into our software, please flatten your files. This is especially important for files with special effects such as glows, transparencies, or drop shadows. 

Please refer to our Art Specification Guide for more details.

We prefer that fonts are converted to outlines and images embedded. If fonts are not converted to outlines, please provide TruType Fonts. Linked files should be included.

We print in CMYK format, so please provide your files in CMYK format. Artwork built in a different color space may not print the correct color.

If Pantone colors need to be matched, please specify this on your order. All critical Pantone colors must be plugged into the file as SOLID COATED SWATCHES. If multiple Pantone swatches are used in the file, all will be matched to solid coated unless otherwise specified. Spot ink colors like Pantone will not always reproduce correctly in print. We will make the closest possible approximation to most spot inks, but we cannot guarantee spot color matching. We do not print metallic, fluorescent, or reflective colors. 

Any shape other than a square or rectangle must include a cut line. Please follow these instructions: 

  • Create a vector cut path.
  • Assign the path to a spot color and rename it "cut" in the swatches palette (a colored outline is not a cut line).
  • If your design needs specific grommet placement, drill holes, or scoring, please mark it accordingly.

Custom Orders

Orders may be sent to sales@supremecolor.com, or feel free to contact us at (985) 875-7800 and one of our awesome team members will work closely with you to fulfill your order. If you have large files to transfer, you may upload them to supremecolor.wetransfer.com.

If an order requires a custom shaped cut, please create a vector cut path on a separate layer, then assign the path to a spot color and rename it "cut" in the swatches palette. Please note that a colored outline is not a cut line. Any shape other than a square or rectangle must include a cut line.  

If raster artwork is used, it should be built to size at 300ppi for posters and decals, 150ppi for rigid signage, and 75ppi for banners. Raster artwork built smaller and scaled up to size will look distorted. 

Products

We use #2 grommets and standard grommet placement for our vinyl and mesh banners are every 2-3 feet.

 For horizontal oriented signs, unless otherwise requested, prints are oriented with vertical flutes, which allows stakes to be easily inserted. (Flutes are the open channels inside the corrugation.) For 18"x24" vertical oriented signs, please request vertical flutes for stakes.

Printing Process

Please contact us immediately by phone at (985) 875-7800 if you need to make a change to an order you have just placed. If you requested a proof, your order will not go into production until you approve the proof.

Our standard turnaround time is approximately 2 to 3 days from final artwork approval. If you have a rush order, please contact us directly at (985) 875-7800 or Sales@Supremecolor.com and we’ll be happy to work with you to meet your in-hands date.

Digital proofs are available upon request for all product orders. Your order's turnaround time may be extended an additional day if a proof is required.

Artwork for our large format printing services should be submitted in PDF format. For more details, please see our artwork guide here.

We do not require a bleed line* for square or rectangle-shaped signs. Simply create your file at print size and our software will automatically add the bleed. 

*If your order requires a custom cut shape, we do require at least ¼ “ bleed.

Yes, all fonts should be converted to outlines and images embedded. Linked files should be included. 

Payments & Shipping

We calculate discounts based on the quantity ordered for each product.

Shipping transit times are based on location and commonly range anywhere from 1-4 days for ground shipments. As of May 2021, transit times for all carriers are not guaranteed. 

We acknowledge the importance of timely delivery for your customers’ orders. Supreme Color is committed to collaborating with you and the carrier to address any delays or damages. Once your order is shipped, we cannot control the transit times as shipping companies are independent of Supreme Color. In the event of shipping delays, we are not liable for any late deliveries of your order.

Pricing is based on a combination of factors such as material, size, and quantity. We do offer estimates prior to placing an order for any product, including trade yard signs or trade vinyl banners. If you need an estimate prior to ordering, please include as many details about your product as possible. This will help our team give an accurate quote for your project.

Our standard shipping carrier is Federal Express, and we offer flat-rate shipping on standard boxes. Non-standard orders are calculated under Supreme Color’s shipping rates and are based on size, weight, and shipping address. We use UPS upon request and will accommodate for 3rd party shipping. If you have specific shipping requirements, we are ready to help! Contact us at (985) 875-7800 or sales@supremecolor.com.

We ship all orders blind and can drop-ship orders as well. If your order needs to be split, we can ship to multiple destinations. Give us a call today at (985) 875-7800 for all inquiries related to multiple destination shipments and drop-ship orders.

While we do our best to ensure accuracy on shipping estimates, they may not always be correct. We will contact you immediately if there is a discrepancy on the shipping cost.

We sell to trade businesses only, so asking for a resale certificate is the fastest way to verify companies are in the printing trade or associated with the printing trade. Having a tax ID also allows us to eliminate sales tax for Louisiana businesses. Contact us today at (985) 875-7800 or sales@supremecolor.com for all inquiries related to your printing needs!

We currently accept checks and credit card payments (Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express). We also accept ACH and wire transfer payments. Call us at 985-875-7800 to speak with one of our eager customer service agents for details.
