Graphic Design Solutions

We offer graphic design services at $90.00 per hour with a 30 minute minimum.


Electronic proofs are sent in a PDF document that is emailed to you. A signed proof is required before printing begins. The online proof is only an example of the final product. It is not an exact color match. We will make every effort to duplicate the colors in your files but the final output will be at our sole discretion. We will not be responsible for any color inaccuracies that may arise.

Color Matching

Exact color matches are not guaranteed. Digital printing and the lamination process make printing on plastic difficult to color match. If you require a color match please specify the Pantone colors to match and we will make an effort to duplicate the colors you require.

Production Time

Production times are based on manufacturing capacity at the time your order is placed. The average lead time is 10-12 working days after art approval.

Rush Orders

We will make every effort to accommodate rush requests. Additional charges may apply as well as overnight freight charges to meet your in hands date.
