DESIGN & ARTWORK GUIDELINES

Imprinting and Design Guide Information: Imprinted product pricing includes a one-color imprint. Minimum order is 144 per product, design and ink color. Standard ink colors are available at no charge. A $45.00 charge will apply to match a PMS number or any other specific shade of ink. There is no screen charge for the first or second color screen on our Four Point Design Guide imprints. Second color custom imprints are subject to approval and may incur additional close registration, screen tint or half tone charges, as well as a screen charge for the second color screen.

  • Foil Stamping is available at an additional cost per product, plus a one-time $75.00 plate charge per 5” x 7” area. Two separate plates are necessary for the front cover and spine.
  • Deboss die charge is $75.00. When choosing an imprint, refer to the Four Point Products Design Guides to preview our most popular one-color and two-color custom imprints, along with order codes below each design. Please visit our website or refer to the last page of this catalog for a list of all available colors. If vinyl color is critical for your order, ask your representative for a color swatch of the material.
  • Before deciding on an imprint, consider how your school name would appear in the actual design. If your school name is longer or shorter than what is shown, the design may look somewhat different. The location of the artwork, shown in our Design Guides, is suggested. You may, if desired, change the location of your artwork. If you need assistance in preparing your artwork, we can help. Ask your Four Point Representative about art charges and other information. Four Point will be happy to provide art proofs for approval. However, art fees will be applied if multiple changes to the art proofs are requested. Contact your Four Point Representative for more details.

Product Ordering Guide and Art Set-Up Specs: Our goal at Four Point Products is to make your job of ordering custom-imprinted loose-leaf products easy. Your school name (department or program name) can be incorporated into any of the designs in our Design Guides. Follow these simple steps for a great looking product that will be well received by students, faculty, and alumni.

  1. Choose your design by the Design Guide number. (Most Four Point pricing includes a one-color imprint.)
  2. Decide on what type of product you want the design to appear. (See product pages or contact Four Point Products via email at fourpoint@binders.com or 1-800-456-6603.)
  3. Select a vinyl color and ink color for your product.
  4. The general minimum order is 144 for custom-imprinting.

Considerations for General Custom Imprinting

  1. The designs are templates that are set up as shown in the Design Guides. Your actual name may be longer or shorter than what is shown. Our Art Department will make the appropriate adjustments to the design and send you a proof, if necessary, for your approval.
  2. While there are many typestyles available, our designers have carefully selected a particular typeface that works in each design.
  3. If you have selected a design that incorporates your school emblem, we may have your emblem on file from a previous order; you can provide your emblem as a digital file (preferably vector) and send to us on a disk or via email at fourpoint@binders.com.
  4. We accept good quality black and white artwork for scanning.
