Artwork Made Simple — New Art Digital Services

Does creating artwork make you want to pull out your hair? Unless you're a graphic designer, creating artwork for clients is a challenge. Vectorizing and color separations? Uffda. What should take a few hours ends up taking days to figure out the design and make it print ready. 

Or maybe you simply do not have the time to create artwork. You have a small team and your time needs to be spent on fulfilling orders. If there was a way to pass off the artwork creation and setup to someone else, you would. 

We hear you, printers. That's why we're pumped to announce the launch of our new digital art services. Artwork.Halftoned.com, powered by GraphX Source, will help you with your art that needs to be vectorized, color separated, or digitized, and get it back quickly and print-ready at a reasonable price.

VECTORIZING

Client gives you a rough idea of what they want printed or offer a crappy image of the design? No need to sweat. 

Send in a sketch...

And you'll get a rad, print-ready design!

How rad is that? No matter how simple or complex a design may be, you can send it in and the team will have high-quality, print-ready artwork right back to you.

I bet you're curious about the pricing. It's a good thing to know because you can include the cost of the service in your pricing for your client. The cost of the service depends on the level of difficulty and how fast you need the artwork to be completed. Let's look at some numbers.

    If a design needs to be reworked, the charge for that is $16. Overall, not bad. These prices can easily be worked in your pricing for your clients. Throw a few Jacksons, get amazing artwork that'll make your customers come back to you for all of their print jobs. 

    COLOR SEPARATIONS

    Do you have a client that has a complex, 8-color print? Take a deep breath, we got your back. Send in the design. A graphic design expert will meticulously separate each color and get it back to you at lightning speed. Print your transparencies and you're off!
