Not Sure? We can help!!
When you send your artwork in to Apple Awards our staff will determine if it is acceptable or unacceptable. The good news is most of these unacceptable formats can be converted to acceptable black & white formats by our staff for a one time fee of $15. This $15 fee is automatically included on your order when you submit artwork for the first time. If we determine that your artwork is acceptable and does not require modifications we may waive this $15 charge on your final invoice. Multiple color images will cost more and will need to be quoted based on complexity. You will be notified by phone or e-mail with a cost quote if this is necessary. We will even provide you with an electronic copy via e-mail of your vector artwork for your future use upon your request. When sending artwork we will usually confirm the receipt of your artwork by e-mail. If you do not receive a confirmation please call 1-800-248-6243 to make sure it was received by us.
