Printing White or Full Color On Our Products

Sample Teeny wand with color printing

Due to machine repairs and moving to another state, printing will not be possibly until the later half of June 2017. Sorry for the inconvience! Also, customized orders have to be placed over the phone or by email. The shopping cart cannot handle them at this time, thanks!

For print customization, first time orders require a one-time only $40 artwork file creation fee. We must size and lay-up multiple artwork copies across a template.  *All our images are printed with commercial grade Eco inks that dry/cure with ultraviolet light and use no volatile solvents!  And our new printer creates perfect prints – every time!

ARTWORK Requirements

.AI, .EPS, .PDF, PSD and DWG.  If your art is in Adobe Illustrator (preferred), or Photoshop, please SAVE AS version CS6 or earlier, I only have CS6. If you have  white ink in your artwork, just leave it as black. I have a special conversion process I must use.  If you must send JPG or TIF images at the actual print size, please save at 400 to 800 dpi (dots per inch) to ensure print quality.

Please email your existing art as soon as possible so we can ensure your art will display clearly against our transparent products. Quite often we find artworks have issues we must make corrections to (see our artwork example problem at the bottom of this page). Send files to life@ziponline.com.

If you need simple art or text created for you, please call Brian at 512-619-1155.

Art Problem Example

The following is an example of problems that art & color can have when printing on transparent products. With most artwork the white color you see is not printed because it is the preexisting paper color. We must modify the art to add white layers or zones, as well as ‘under’ all colors. The example bear below had only black in the art. The white had to be added.  Medium to dark color logos/artworks can be hard to read.

Above is the original art as it appears on paper.

Example showing stages of poor printing results

The original blue text does not show up against the blue sand color background. * This is the most common issue when using colors on a transparent product.

Example showing stages of poor printing results

Printed all in White, the bear is not detailed well. It needs modification to add black.

Example showing stages of poor printing results
Poor looking. Tried adding a white outline to the text to make it read better, but it looks poor.

Example showing stages of poor printing results

Meh, this is not working either. Tried a heavier white outline around text, but looks visually busy and distracts from the bear.

Example showing stages of poor printing results

Above is the FINAL version. All white areas had to be independently added to the artwork. Additionally, we made the bear visible from the opposite/inside of the wand as well. So we had to print 3 times; the black layer – the white layer – and black layer again.
