FAQ

What is your turnaround time?

For most common jobs, once the artwork has been approved our turnaround time is about 24-48 hours for production. For higher quantity and labor intensive projects, timing is worked out with the client directly.

How do I submit files?

Large files can be submitted through our ftp uploader. You can do this by selecting the "Upload Files" button on the top of our web page and putting all necessary info in the form. You can also use a dropbox link to submit files if that’s something you’re more comfortable using.

Our graphics/print production guy will make sure the files are complete and ready to print before proceeding. We'll contact you and offer any advice needed.

How do I set up a file to submit?

We work mostly from Adobe Illustrator for large format printing so that’s the best place to start. You can submit your file as an .ai, .eps, .pdf, .tif, or .jpg. Please keep in mind that .tif and .jpg files cannot be edited so if possible, outline the fonts before exporting and whenever possible use vector art.

Where can I find high resolution images?

  • www.shutterstock.com
  • www.bigstockphoto.com
  • www.dreamstime.com
  • www.masterfile.com
  • www.corbisimages.com
  • www.gettyimages.com

What type of ink do you use?

Our latex printer uses water-based inks which provides a healthier environment, richer colors, and makes it easier to recycle the paper. Our flat printer uses UV-curable ink. This UV ink is “cured” or transformed into a solid film that tightly adheres directly to a substrate once it is exposed to the UV light.

How much are custom color change wraps for a vehicle?

Generally, custom color change wraps are similar to custom paint jobs. Because we remove, mirrors, door handles, grill, bumper, light bezels, etc, the costs are usually around $20 per square foot.

How long does it take to get a vehicle wrapped?

Our vehicle wrap installers are the best in the Bay Area, we’re typically booked several weeks in advance. As for the wrap itself depending on the vehicle size, it can take anywhere from a half day to 2 business days.

Do you do car roofs, grills, and clear bras for cars?

Yes we do. Prices start at $500.

Do you install hardware for blade signs?

Technically we can't install the sign brackets because we are not a licensed contractor. We work with a few contractors but if they go get the permits, install the sign and charge us, then we have to mark it up and then charge you, the client. However, if you get the permit and work directly with the contractor you'll save at least 25%.

We do know some handy people that can install and would work directly with you on your specific project. We’re happy to connect you as a part of the process.

Do the graphics go on the inside or the outside of windows?

We generally encourage decals to be put onto the outside, for a few reasons. The main reason for this is visibility. There will always be glare coming from the window, making them harder to see. If there is any window tinting, they'll be very dark from the outside. Also, if there is window tinting, and the tint film is on the inside (usually the case), we'll void any warranty on that film by putting graphics onto it. If you ever change the graphics, they'll probably pull some of that tinting film off.

If you're worried that someone will pick at them, we've found that's very rare. They're on the outside at most locations and we have yet to have a complaint of people pulling the graphics off of a window.

How can I pay?

Generally we don’t begin the process without a deposit of 50%, or a Purchase Order (PO) from your company to ours for the entire amount. We request full payment upon completion of the project and accept cash, check, and credit card.

Steve Case

These folks are amazing. I had a large wall graphic (mural) that needed to be installed on a very tight timeline. Ed and his team made it happen, even with a difficult end client and moving installation time frames. I couldn't be happier, also my client was delighted with the result.
