1. Getting Started
The first step is getting to know you and the design problem we’ll be helping you with. After placing an order, you will be automatically redirected to our project details page. There you will find fillable pdfs for download. These fillable PDFs contain specific questions to help us determine your design needs and help us formulate the tone and execution of your project. By doing this we identify your project requirements and determine how can they be met.
2. File Upload
After filling out the PDFs use our simple uploader tool. Just enter your Transaction ID number, and upload those pdfs along with any documentation that you feel will help with the project (body copy with selectable text, links, and other design assets.)
3. Project Assessment & Review
The PDFs and supporting documentation are extensively reviewed. Based on what was written, the project requirements and parameters are carefully chosen. The design assets are gathered like stock photograpy, body copy, call to action statments, and important contact info about the product, event or subject being advertised.
4. Inital Design
After the creative direction is chosen we explore design, and your brand experience begins to take shape. We try really hard to illustrate the benefits of what you're promoting and provide custom made material to help reach your audience and deliver your message.
5. Design Reviews
As we begin the process the first initial design is developed. There will be some back and forth to get exactly what you want. Design reviews generally happen online and display various ideas in the creative design process. The designs will look polished, but are preliminary concepts that will be further refined.
6. Final Output
Once the final design is approved, high-res artwork is prepared for final output. Approved designs are finally sent electronically by FTP for download. They are set up for press containing crop marks, bleeds and die cuts. Depending on the type of product chosen; scoring, cutting, and assembly might be required at your local printer. You will be notified, by email, when your product is ready for digital download. If your product is web-based, digital files will be available for download. Because of the nature of products offered, lead time varies.
