Artwork Options

Artwork is uploaded AFTER you have completed checkout. This is so that your artwork files are automatically named with the 5 digit order number to ensure your order and artwork are linked together. Additionally, after successful upload of your artwork you will receive a confirmation email. Below are some basic guidelines for artwork preparation but more detailed information can be obtained from our Templates section and also from the Artwork Upload area which is accessible after checkout has been completed. We have four options for Artwork Preparation / Upload:

  1. Upload your own artwork
  2. Use our Online Design Tool
  3. Design it for me
  4. Use from a previous order

Upload My Own:

We have implemented a user friendly Upload area which clearly shows how your disc artwork will appear when printed. This allows you to have a visual proof prior to printing that your artwork conforms to our templates. You will notice that on the right side of the Upload Artwork page are the Design Requirements as well as applicable templates for the product.
