WHEN…will it arrive

However, the amount of time it takes to receive your Fits Accessories EQS products depends on a number of factors including: type of artwork provided, how complicated the concept is, the decoration technique selected, season production issues and even transportation and governmental regulation.

TIPS & TRICKS

TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE

                   When committing to custom orders, make sure you devote the time to approve graphics and samples quickly. Hours can make a different in ensuring your order arrives on or before your required date.

LOGOS & COLOURS

                   Try to get your logo(s) in a vectorized format. This means in Adobe Illustrator or similar program (with a .AI or .EPS extension to the file name). JPG is NOT a vectorized format. Also, try to know what your PMS (Pantone Matching System) colours are. This will greatly speed up the graphic design process

KNOWING WHAT YOU DON’T WANT

                   It is very helpful to know what you don’t want to do. “Do not use these colours”, or “our logo can not be less than ‘x’ size”, or “these two logos should always be stacked” and so on ensure the virtual graphic spec and samples are made to your specifications.

CHANGES…THEY HURT, REALLY

                   Once you’ve made your decision don’t change it. The custom process is like a snowball rolling down the mountain…it becomes increasingly difficult to change direction once it’s started. If you do change, then expect delays.

CAVEATS

                   Premium vs. Standard

                   Unique fabrics exclusive to Fits Accessories Premium
