Artwork Questions

We need an Adobe Illustrator Vector file in version CS6 or earlier, saved as eps, ai or pdf. The file should have no placed or imported images in it.
Email what you have and we let you know what needs to be done so your order is not held up due to artwork problems. We can sometimes fix your logo quickly with little or no charge. However, if your artwork is complex issues, we may have to charge a small art fee based on the time spent fixing it. Typically we charge $50.00 per hour.
We have a talented in-house art department that is available to create a logo design for you. For simple jobs we may not even charge you for this service. However, our standard art fee is $50/hr.
You can e-mail your artwork to: artwork@groupatlanta.com. For larger files over 5mb please email info@groupatlanta.com for more information.
Yes. We archive every art job that we do for our clients. This means that once we have your logo on file there is usually not a need to send it to us again. We can also make revisions and/or changes to your logo or add text underneath (usually) at no charge.

Custom imprinting your logo on an item requires printing plates, film, setting up the engraving laser or embroidery tape charges (just to name a few). These costs are independent of the actual costs of imprinting and are set-out under the "Set-up" section of your order confirmation. Although these are one-time costs, for certain items there may be re-set charges on certain products, which will be noted separately.

Minimum Orders & Blank Items

We specialize in corporate merchandise and are not a retail site for individual purchasers. Although we would like to accommodate orders for 1 item at a time that simply is not our business. We make every effort to keep our minimum order quantities as low as possible, but sometimes we just have to say no.
Minimum quantities are listed as the starting pricing column. However, sometimes there will be an Absolute Minimum quantity of 1/2 the listed quantity. This minimum usually requires an additional "less than minimum" charge and varies in the amount from product to product. If you have questions concerning an "Absolute Minimum" please feel free to contact us.
We require a minimum order amount of $200 per order.

Over and Underruns Questions

Because we produce items in bulk, we always try to run a few extra pieces in case there are quality issues. Depending on the item that you order, that quantity can vary from 5% - 10%. We make every effort to meet your quantity exactly, but overruns are billable on a pro rata basis. This is a standard practice in our industry. Arrangements can be made prior to production for exact quantity but this may require an additional charge.
