Please use this handy checklist to avoid additional cost and time.

For digital print orders all artwork, variable data, images, layouts etc should be emailed to digitalprint@abilityplastics.com. Any changes or alterations required to make the artwork usable will result in a $75 per hour charge with a minimum of 1/4 hour. We use CMYK process colors and some PMS colors cannot be reproduced. Because of the variations inherent in all printed materials we do not recommend borders on plastic cards that parallel the edge of the printed piece because slight variations may be noticeable. Proofs must be carefully reviewed. An approved proof is final acceptance to produce the order. Production lead time starts upon receipt of your proof approval.
