Special note for saving large files

Larger files can be compressed safely and efficiently using the following procedure.

  • In Photoshop
  • Flatten all Layers
  • Save as Photoshop EPS
  • In the next box of options under Encoding – Select JPEG (maximum quality)
  • all other boxes UNCHECKED<save
  • Special note for colors on different materials
  • Due to different material types, we cannot guarantee color matching between materials as they take ink differently, print on different printers and have different production processes. and even if using the same color values, there can be slight variations.
  • We only print CMYK colors. On Fabric’s we do not guarantee how PMS, Pantone, RGB, Spot or 5th colors will print out. They can print incorrectly, inverted or drop completely from the file. Please convert your colors to CMYK only to prevent major color issues. Please be aware colors on screen will appear darker when printed and to create file accordingly. When printing photographs, please make sure the color values and color space are both CMYK only. 

Order Cancellations

All cancellations must be submitted in writing. Once an order is placed, artwork is received, inspected, readied for imprinting and an order confirmation has been created that order will be charged a minimum cancellation fee of $39. Client is also responsible for all credit card charges along with all labor and material costs incurred prior to cancellation and will be billed accordingly. Once an order has been confirmed and entered into production, it is considered firm and cannot be cancelled.

Proofing info

What you see on your proof is a low-res representation of what you will receive. If you send in your order in black and white and you need us to change a color make sure it is changed on your proof. If you have PMS colors make sure the file is set up CMYK and the values are correct in the file, also include a note in your purchase order and we will also check it for you. Remember all monitors are different and the colors might not be exact but they should be close (red- red, blue-blue, etc.). PMS colors from a process book are the best way to ensure accurate color.
