Absolutely! We specialize in custom designing exactly what you need printed. We will sit down to talk about your ideas and create something even better than you initially imagined. You can find out more here https://multisourceprinting.com/custom-graphic-design/
What kind of files do you accept?
Ideally we prefer high-resolution PDF’s to ensure the best printing quality, but we also accept JPG and PNG files. We will always look over files you send to us and call with any concerns we have. We are not responsible for issues that arise from files that were not properly designed and saved the right way as a professional Graphic Designer would do.
Do you provide the final design files to me?
YES we will definitely provide any and all files at your request.
WE DO NOT HOLD YOUR FILES HOSTAGE.
Many times a new client will call us and tell us about a horrible experience they had with their Graphic Designer and we can promise you, that will not happen with us. You will be provided with all files necessary so you can use elsewhere if needed. We also keep a backup of your files at all times.
Why do my printed colors look different from the colors on my screen?
Use the RGB color system for displaying colors.
Use the CMYK color system or Spot Colors.
The RGB system has a greater range of colors. CMYK cannot produce brighter colors that you are seeing on your incredibly vivid phone and computer screens. These hues are beyond the CMYK range and will come out darker and more dull when printed than what you see on your display.
If you are set on a specific color, you will have to choose a SPOT COLOR from one of our Pantone books.
Do you use templates in your designs?
With 4 Creative Graphic Designers we pride ourselves on creating unique and original designs that are not “cookie-cutter” and “templated.”
We are considered a premium design service, where you will definitely get what you are paying for and our design team will make sure you are totally satisfied with your final product.
Are 'Canva' files okay to send for print?
CANVA has rapidly become the platform where many every-day people are getting their files from. To be honest, we have a love-hate relationship with the files that are produced through CANVA. It’s important to learn how to properly save high-resolution PDF’s through their website. We will not log into your account to create, edit or save your CANVA files.
It’s also important to note, that depending how you set up the file and imported all the content, we tend to see some funky things happening with files that are produced on the CANVA platform. We suggest hiring a professional group of designers such as ourselves to complete your project properly.
Can you make my company a logo?
Yes, we have created many custom logos for local businesses from scratch. We do not use templates or clip-art for your professional Logo. You can learn more about our Custom Logo Design services here:
Event Branch Questions
When do I need to reserve my booking?
Typically, you should be reserving/placing an order about 6 months – 1 year in advance. Depending on the items requested, we can accommodate short notice inquiries as well.
Do I need to make a deposit in order to lock in my date?
Yes, it depends on the caliber of the project, but we require at least half down to get your project into motion. The remaining balance must be met 2 weeks at the very latest before your wedding day.
Once the deposit is made, how long will it take to see a mock up of my sign(s)?
This varies depending on the complexity of the requested design and
quantity of the order. On average, it will usually take up to 1 week to
receive an initial mock up of your sign. From there, we consult back and
forth until a revised layout is finalized that you’re happy with.
How do I pick which fonts, layout or style I want for my sign(s)?
What I find easiest from a design standpoint is for my clients to send me
‘signage inspo’: photos and examples of signs they like on Etsy, Pinterest, etc. including specific fonts, colors, structure + theme. The more I have and the more specific, the better!
With signage inspo, I’m able to follow suit and follow a clear direction leading to the end result you and I are both happy with!
*I can also provide my own font list to choose from if you would prefer- just let me know! 🙂
Can I keep my sign after my wedding?
This varies depending what material you want for your sign(s). All mirror
and glass displays are RENTALS ONLY unless providing your own.
Any and all acrylic signage are YOURS TO KEEP.
*Please know, any signage accessory including box bases and pipe stands are rentals only as well.
Do you deliver and set up the day of my wedding or event?
YES WE DO! There are additional charges with delivery/set up and pick up.
Delivery and set up charges vary depending on the proximity your venue
is located from MS Event Signage’s Location in Bohemia.
