Submitting Your Design for Custom Foil Products

(Not sure if your art fits the guidelines below? We have a submission form you can use to send us your art. We'll check its usability and get back to you!)


Only certain types of artwork can be used for foil stamping:


  • Because the foil is a single color, your artwork must be only one color.

  • The BLACK areas of your artwork will be FOIL on the finished product.

  • We cannot use artwork that contains color or shades of grey.

A. NO. -- Color artwork is not acceptable

B. NO. -- "Black and White" artwork is not acceptable if it contains shades of grey

C. YES. -- Black & White ONLY. The black areas will be printed as areas of foil.


About the size of your image:

  • For diploma cover stamping of a custom image, the regular die charge covers a die that is up to 9" square. Larger dies cost more; select the size of your die on the order form.

  • The largest area we normally stamp on a diploma cover is 3" high by 5.5" long.

  • For custom foil images to be printed on paper, such as a diploma crest, there is no size limit.


Details about submitting the electronic artwork:

  • For the best image quality, please begin with a scalable vector image, size it larger than what the size will be on the diploma cover, and save as a .pdf file. We prefer a .pdf file, but can accept a .ai, .jpg, .tif or .psd .

  • If you're submitting art as an illustrator (.ai) or photoshop (.pds) file, please save for CS5.

  • Your artwork must be uploaded or emailed to us as an image file. We cannot accept art that is embedded in a Word document.

  • If it is not vector art, then your artwork should be 300 pixels per inch or higher.

  • For example, a finished stamped image of 3" x 3" would require artwork with 900 pixels by 900 pixels.

  • If you are ordering a die for a first-time job with us, you should upload your artwork with the order. We'll contact you if the art is not in a usable form.

  • If your art is not in the proper format (see examples above), we may be able to revise it, but there is a charge for this service.
