3. Design description
Describe in detail how you want your logo to appear on the mat. i.e., as large as possible, centered, placement of colors.
4. Submit your artwork
We are committed to providing the most attractive logo mats available. Essential to this is the quality of the artwork provided. The best artwork is a black and white ad slick. The slick can be any size up to 8.5" x 11". Artwork can be submitted by mail*, express delivery or e-mail** (e-mail is the preferred and fastest form of submission).
**E-mail the following PC formats only:
.pdf, .jpg, .wmf, .tif, .eps, .gif, .cdr, .ai or .bmp (bitmap)
Faxed copies distort artwork and therefore cannot be used. Below is a list of different types of artwork. Each is classified as acceptable, unacceptable or marginal. If we are unable to use marginal artwork, we will advise you that we need better artwork. Please try to provide the best possible artwork on the initial order, as this will expedite the process.
***Color prints, if available can be submitted to show color placement for a design.

Art Proofs are available for approval of your designs. Art proofs can be viewed on our Internet site, which eliminates the need to mail a printed version. If you do not have Internet access, art proofs will be mailed to you. Art proofs can be sent via express carriers but Mat Logo, Inc. will not be responsible for the charges. First and second versions of art proof on a single design are provided at no charge. Additional art proof versions of the same design will cost $25.00 each. Art proof charges will not be refunded if the design is subsequently ordered.
