How to Get Started Having Your Designs Made

 

 

ARTWORK
  • Send artwork on paper or in digital PC format (not Mac)
  • We accept CD-ROM or diskette, not Zip-disks.  You can also e-mail us your picture as long as the resolution is 150dpi.
  • Our preferred file format is jpg
  • We need one large picture of the logo and a picture demonstrating how you want your logo patterned
  • You may send Pantone numbers for exact color matching or we will match the colors within a few shades from a picture that you send.  The Pantone numbers should be TEXTILE numbers.  If they are from the COLOR FORMULA GUIDE they have to be subjectively converted to TEXTILE numbers and they may be 1 shade off.
TIME FRAME
  • Printed ties: 4-6 weeks for samples and 4-6 weeks for main production
  • Scarves:    4-6 weeks for samples and 4-6 weeks for main order
  • Woven ties: 4-6 weeks for samples and 4-6 weeks for main order
  • Please note that urgent orders can be made faster by foregoing sample viewing and going straight to production if necessary.

 

HOW MUCH MONEY DO I NEED TO GET STARTED?
  • You need only pay the minimal set-up fees to get samples.  Once you approve samples, we need a deposit for 50% of the cost of your order.  The second 50% is due when your full order arrives.  Delays in sample approval or payment will delay production.

 

Believe it or not, the process is that simple.  There may be extra tailoring or special requests that you have.  Please discuss those special needs with our staff by e-mail or phone before ordering.  We are sure that you will have further questions, so please call us at 1-888-950-Ties (8437) when you are ready or e-mail:
