What is a B.A.M.M. TAG
When a client prints on only one side of a flyer, there is a space on the back which is unused, B.A.M.M. places its logo on the back. This is a B.A.M.M. Tag. To opt out of this tag you can choose the option op out from the "BAMM TAG" relative to the quantity amount in the drop menu. There is a cost associated per quantity.

What are your accepted file formats?

Acceptable flattened only accepted are PDF, TIFF, or JPEG files unless otherwise specified. Layered TIFFs and PDFs can loose elements when opened by computers other than the one used to design the files. We are not responsible for inaccuracies due to files submitted with layers, transparencies.

 

What resolution & color mode should my files be?

Create and save your files in 300 DPI CMYK format unless specified in the product description. Please keep in mind that all logos and images placed in your design should be 300 DPI as well.  You cannot convert low resolution files (72-150 DPI) to 300 DPI. Low resolution files will print blurry and text will be illegible.

 

How should I size my design file and what is bleed?

 Please size your artwork to be .125 inches over your finished size unless specified in the product description. For example, if you ordered a 4" x 6" flyer, the artwork submitted should measure exactly 4.125" x 6.125". This additional artwork, in print speak, is known as the "Bleed". It prevents a thin white edge from appearing on your final printed piece once trimmed down.  Do not include crop marks in your design - We are not responsible for errors in the final print work due to the client including crop marks in their designs, nor do we have time to edit out crop marks on every client that submits their files improperly.

 

Additionally, we require .25" "safe zone" from the cut line. i.e. All important text and logos must be at least .25" inches away from our 4" x 6" cut line. This ensures that no important elements of your design are cut during the finishing process.

 

Can I submit a design that has a border or frame?

 Borders and frames look great on your computer screen but can cause nightmares with the quality of your final product.  If a border is too thin or a frame is too close to the cut line even the slightest "shift" in the printing & cutting process will be very noticeable.  We do not recommend designing with borders and frames but if you are dead set on it please make your borders at least .5in thick (yes that sounds like a lot but trust us) and bleed your frames off the edge of the design making them at least .5in thick too.  Thin boarders and "Floating" frames that do not bleed are just a measuring stick for minor inaccuracies.

 

Can I get a proof?

We do not proof client provided graphics. All graphics should be flattened thus no proof is necessary. All graphics should be proof read and approved before they are submitted. BAMM is not responsible for design errors on client provided files.  If you require a printed proof before printing please notify us. Physical proofs are typically $10 but can vary depending on the size and quantity of the proofs you need.

 

 What if I don't see the size I need or need a custom size?

Don't worry we can print and trim to just about any size imaginable.  Just email us at graphics(@)bammentertainment.com with your graphics and inquiry and we will get back to you asap.  Typically we "round up" so the pricing will fall in the the size just bigger than what your submitting.

 

Should I include crop marks on my graphics?

 Do not include crop marks on your print work. We trim 1/16th - 1/8th inch off of all print work so the final trim size will not be exactly that of the artwork submitted. If you need specific cuts please notify us at the time you place your order and we do our best to accommodate your needs.
